There’s Real Harm in Lindsay Lohan Decrying #MeToo Accusers as "Attention-Seekers"

Postado Agosto 10, 2018

Actor Lindsay Lohan has slammed #MeToo movement saying the campaign makes women look weak.

Lindsay noted that she "can't speak on something I didn't live" and is adamant that she is fully supportive of women.

Lohan, who said she never had such an experience while in Hollywood, also said women who go through such ordeals should address it right away.

"If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment", she said in an interview with The London Times. "You make it a real thing by making it a police report", she suggested.

The movement came to the fore previous year after the alleged sex crimes of Harvey Weinstein prompted women across the globe to bravely share their own harrowing experiences.

The former child star added that she's "very supportive of women", although she doesn't like "attention-seekers" or, as The Times put it, "trial by social media". You have these girls who come out, who do not even know who they are, who do it just for the attention.

During the interview, Lohan also doubted all those coming forward are doing it for the right reasons.

The actress defended Harvey Weinstein when allegations of sexual assault first emerged against the disgraced movie mogul.

In 2016, Lohan accused her ex-fiance Egor Tarabasov of physical abuse during their relationship, but did not file a complaint.

Filming herself in her Dubai bathroom, Lindsay said: 'I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don't think it's right what's going on'.

"I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband", Lohan said of Weinstein's wife, who has said she was leaving her husband after what she calls his "unforgivable actions". I think it's wrong.
