Liberals Erupt After Actress Lindsay Lohan Says #MeToo Accusers Look Weak
'You have these girls who come out, who don't even know who they are, who do it for the attention,' said the controversial performer
Actress Lindsay Lohan made controversial remarks about the “MeToo” movement— and they’re getting plenty of pushback.
In an interview with the British newspaper The Times, Lohan discussed the so-called movement , which has encouraged numerous women to come forward with sexual misconduct accusations, particularly in the workplace (it also has its problems, of course).
“I don’t really have anything to say. I can’t speak on something I didn’t live, right?” she said.
“Look, I am very supportive of women,” Lohan continued. “Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways. If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment. You make it a real thing by making it a police report.”
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women,” she added.
It was that part about women looking “weak” that earned her outrage. Lohan did qualify her remark by saying there are actually “very strong women,” while adding that attention-seekers are harming their message.
“You have these girls who come out, who don’t even know who they are, who do it for the attention,” Lohan said. “That is taking away from the fact that it happened.”
“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
The childhood actress, famous for roles in Disney’s “The Parent Trap” and “Mean Girls,” has made controversial statements on the #MeToo movement in the past. In late 2017, she made waves by defending disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein on her Instagram page.
“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on,” she said in her now-deleted video. “I think Georgina [Chapman] needs to take a stand and be there for her husband.”
She also got plenty of heat from liberals in July 2015 for defending President Donald Trump on Twitter.
“Stop #bullying him & start trusting him. Thank you personally for supporting #THEUSA,” she wrote — then later deleted it.
But in April of this year, she trolled him on Twitter, saying, “Hey, @realDonaldTrump, heard you need a lawyer … at Lawyer.com, we are always here for everyone.”
