‘Star Wars’ actor Riz Ahmed says he was racially profiled: ‘It’s really scary to be Muslim right now’

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” actor Riz Ahmed claimed he was racially profiled on a flight in April, causing him to miss a Star Wars Celebration convention in Chicago.

Ahmed, 36, made his comments Tuesday at the CAA Amplify conference, Variety reported.

The “Venom” star described being swabbed for explosives and questioned at an unnamed airport in the United States, claiming it wasn’t a rare occurrence and that he’s frequently stopped and searched when he flies. The Department of Homeland Security wouldn’t comment on any alleged incidents without being given a specific date.

“With all my privilege and profile, I often wonder if this is going to be the year they round us up, if this is the year they’re going to put Trump’s Muslim registry into action, if this is going to be the year they ship us all off,” he reportedly told the crowd.
