Singer-turned-Dj Solange Knowles faced a humiliating pat down at a Florida airport on Wednesday (14Nov12) after security guards demanded to search her afro wig.

Beyonce's younger sister was on her way to board a flight out of Miami when she was asked to remove her hairpiece to prove she wasn't hiding any prohibited items under the afro.

A stunned Knowles later took to her Twitter.com blog to share her astonishment with fans, posting a link to a 2011 news article about a woman who was subjected to similar treatment by Transport Security Administration (TSA) officials at an airport in Atlanta, Georgia.

Alongside the website address, she tweeted, "I kid you not. This just happened to me."

She later added, "Discrim-FRO-nation (sic). My hair is not a storage drawer. Although, guess I couuld (sic) hide a joint up in here."

However, Knowles refused to let the incident upset her and instead had a little Twitter fun with her followers by playing a game she called, "What did TSA find in Solange's Fro?".
