Lindsay Lohan has been back in the news lately, which is exciting if you're the kind of person who reflects fondly on Charlie Sheen's meltdown, but highly triggering if you're disturbed by the sight of track marks wending their way through an archipelago of ginger freckles.
We kid LiLo, of course.
By most accounts, the actress-turned-wannabe-reality-star is sober(-ish) these days -- which makes her latest comments all the more baffling.
In case you've been blissfully unaware, Lohan is currently filming a new show for MTV, a reality series that's been described as a "docu-drama" focusing on Lindsay's eponymous nightclub in Greece.
Sources say the show was "inspired" by the Bravo hit Vanderpump Rules (read: it'll be a lame attempt to piggyback on that series' success).
The show just started shooting and it's not set to debut until next year, but Lohan is already basking in the media attention generated by news of the project.
And proving once again that you can take the girl out of Hollywood but you can't stop her from saying idiotic things, Lindsay is already shooting herself in the foot every chance she gets.
During a recent interview, Lohan was asked about her thoughts regarding the #MeToo movement that's shedding light on the rampant sexual assault and harassment that's been plaguing Hollywood for decades.
Lindsay began by stating that she doesn't “really have anything to say” ... and she should have just left it there.
Instead, she pressed on with the sort of comments that would be career-ruiners -- if Lindsay still had a career left to ruin.
“I can’t speak on something I don’t live, right? Look, I am very supportive of women. Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways,” Lohan began.
For reasons that defy logic or explanation, she went on to argue that victims discredit themselves by not reporting abuse immediately:
“If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment," Lohan said.
“You make it a real thing by making it a police report,” she added.
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women.”
Oof. Obviously the part about sexual assault survivors looking "weak" is getting the most attention on social media today, but this statement is atrocious for so many other reasons, as well.
Imagine telling an abuse survivor that their attack wasn't "real" because they failed to report it prior to a deadline that exists only in Lindsay Lohan's mind.
Hopefully, Lindsay doesn't really believe this stuff, and she's still just working as a mouthpiece for various foreign governments.
But if that's the case, she should probably tell us soon before she's forced to hire Paul Manafort's legal team.
