Hey, remember a hot minute ago when Lindsay Lohan rushed to Harvey Weinstein’s defense, shamed his wife for leaving him, and suggested that because Weinstein had never assaulted her, these multiple other actresses must be lying?

That was what you call a "bad take."

Well, Lindsay isn’t done commenting … unfortunately.

We remember Lindsay Lohan’s history with domestic violence all too well. As with so many aspects of Lindsay’s life, she deserved so much better.

There was an alarming photo of Lindsay’s injured leg shared early in 2016 along with a somewhat cryptic message.

At the time, the world didn’t even know which person she was vaguely alleging of having done it.

It wasn’t until months later that Lindsay Lohan finally accused Egor Tarabasov of domestic violence.

Alarmingly, she said at the time that no woman should stay with a man who hits her if he refuses to apologize, as if abusers don’t apologize all of the time and as if an apology for something so vile could change anything.

But fans from all around the world read the harrowing tale. Lindsay, who had already been so much — from her awful parents to her child stardom — should never have had to endure domestic abuse.

No one should.

Fans only grew more worried when Lindsay Lohan sported a tremendous bruise on her arm around that same time.

And all of this was after Lindsay cried out for help after Egor allegedly tried to strangle her.

She revealed that she ultimately realized that you can’t stay in a relationship just for love, and she’s absolutely right.

That is why fans were so, so disappointed in Lindsay Lohan’s response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal. At first, you remember, he was accused of being a serial harasser.

That was before women came forward and accused him of being a serial rapist, as well.

But sexual harassment is a big deal all on its own. And it impacts millions of women every single day.

Many fans were crushed by Lindsay’s support of Weinstein.

(When his own wife leaves him, maybe it’s well past time to give him the benefit of the doubt)

Just because Weinstein had never invited Lindsay, personally, to come and shower in front of him isn’t exactly proof that he never did that — or worse — to other women.

Apparently, Lindsay Lohan saw the reactions as accusations that she isn’t pro-woman.

And, yeah, that was at least part of the response.

She posted and deleted a defense of herself … and included a very accusatory tone.

Her initial caption read:

"Whatever anyone says, I am FOR #womenempowerment as if most women in America cared how I was abused by my exfiancé… when not one person stood up for me while he was abusing me…"

She seems to be ignoring countless people who posted concern for her and condemnation of her (now former!) fiance.

(I know that I certainly wrote about it at the time)

"You could only imagine what it feels like to come out as a #strongwoman BUT, acknowledge this, we all make our own choices and wake up in our own beds in the morning."

That line does not make much sense. At all.

"I prefer to go to my home and wake up alone. #BESTRONG let us not blame anyone as #karma will always takes its toll. #womensrights"

Note that her first hashtag reads "be strong," not "best rong."

So … Lindsay spiraled into incoherence in a way that we normally expect from people who are still mastering English and are not native speakers.

But you know what? Anyone can find that their thoughts didn’t quite translate to paper.

In any case, Lindsay Lohan deleted that original caption and replaced it.

The Mean Girls star and tabloid legend has changed her tune … up to a point.

At the very least, she’s much more succinct and no longer seems to be trying to shame the women of America.

"Whatever anyone says, I am FOR #womenempowerment #strongwoman #BESTRONG #karma will always takes its toll. #womensrights"

We guess that, to Lindsay, she saw a fan response but not a massive movement that she now sees in the wake of the Weinstein scandal.

Maybe that rubbed her the wrong way. Maybe she was just being defensive and trying to deflect.

Honestly, we don’t even know if poorly Lindsay herself could tell us why she says some of the things that she does. Let’s cut her some slack.

Remember that, in her own way, Lindsay is sharing a #MeToo story.

"Whatever anyone says, I am FOR #womenempowerment #strongwoman #BESTRONG #karma will always takes its toll. #womensrights"
