Porsha Williams is accusing a Los Angeles International Airport of racial harassment after an incident in which she said she was threatened with police intervention by its manager.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star hasn’t provided many details regarding the incident, but she did call out the manager of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill at LAX in a Thursday morning tweet.

Williams, 37, was fortunately able to get her on flight, and she will “post the whole story when I land 😣,” following up on Twitter.
Williams welcomed her baby girl Pilar Jhena with Dennis McKinley in March.
If Williams’ claim is true, it would be the latest high-profile case of racial profiling. In April singer SZA, claimed she was accused of stealing by a Sephora employee in April while shopping for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty products in Calabasas, Calif. The company reportedly shut down its more than 400 stores for diversity training last week.

Not long after the incident, Rihanna sent SZA a Fenty Beauty gift card with a note that said, “Go buy yo Fenty Beauty in peace sis!”
As a result of the backlash from the incident, Sephora closed its stores for diversity training for employees for a day, PEOPLE reports.
