Lindsay Lohan found herself in trouble earlier this week as she said that #MeToo campaign makes the women “look weak”.
Lindsay opened up in an interview with a leading US-based daily to talk about her, what the interviewee called her "old-school attitude to on-set politics" and response to a story about her stripping in a recent film.
On whether she has ever faced any sexual wrongdoing while filming such scenes, Lindsay said, "I don't really have anything to say. I can't speak on something I didn't live, right?"
She added it by saying that she is "very supportive of women" but "can't go along with the 'attention-seekers' or trial by social media.”
She was quoted: "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. 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. You have these girls who come out, who don't even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened."
Soon after the interview got out, it got negative feedback from many women supporters of #MeToo campaign.
Actress Aisha Tyler tweeted:  “@lindsaylohan is canceled. Forever.” while several others also condemned her approach.
That Nobel-prize-winning genius Lindsay Lohan on #MeToo : 'I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking out, it makes them look weak.' Hey, Linds, you don't have to hate yourself: we'll do it for you!— Judith Flanders (@JudithFlanders) August 9, 2018
Lindsay whose one of the most popular role has been in Mean Girls, has a forthcoming MTV reality show which made headlines last year when she defended Harvey Weinstein. She deleted the video soon after.
