Diana Ross had an "incredible night" performing in New Orleans, but her high was tampered by an incident that happened as she arrived at the airport.

In a series of tweets Sunday, Ross described her security check at the New Orleans International Airport.

“OK so on one hand I’m treated like royalty in New Orleans and at the airport I was treated like s***,” she wrote. “Let me be clear, not the [people] or Delta BUT TSA, was over the top!! Makes me want to cry!!!”

Ross went on to say that the nature of the pat-down didn't sit well with her.

She said: "Its not what  was done but how , I am feeling violated - I still feel her hands between my legs , front and back ( saying to me it her job ,) WOW!!really mixed emotions I always like to see the good things but not feeling good right now."

A TSA spokesperson said that after a review of the security footage, it was determined that agents "correctly followed all protocols" with Ross, according to a statement obtained by People.

“TSA is committed to ensuring all travelers are treated with respect and courtesy," the statement added. "... TSA leadership will continue to investigate the matter further. We encourage Ms. Ross to reach out to TSA so we can work with her directly to address her concerns.”

In her final tweet, Ross shared a video of herself singing "Stop! In the Name of Love" to an enthusiastic crowd in New Orleans.

"Im feeling better , it took a minute."
