Lindsay Lohan just said women ‘look weak’ when they share their #MeToo stories later on. Is this comment uncalled for? Scroll down to see the results.
Lindsay Lohan doesn’t seem to be a fan of the #MeToo Movement. In a recent interview, she went on to bash the movement and imply that women who participate just want attention. She said she’s “very supportive of women,” but doesn’t like “attention seekers.”
The movement, empowered women to speak out and come forward and tell their own personal story of assault. Lohan, however, bashed those same women, and said they “look weak,” for doing so.
Lohan, who has been part of the entertainment industry since she was a child, said she’s never experienced sexual misconduct. She said that she has no experience to add, but that discussing it at that moment and filing a police report is what makes it real. Any other time, just takes away from it, and turns women into attention seekers.
Lohan is making a comeback with a new MTV reality show about her nightclubs in Greece and shared how she came to own that Greek beach. Her and her ex-boyfriend, Egor Tarabasov, had a public violent altercation on that exact Greek beach in 2016.
“I had a fight with my ex on this very beach. What did I do? Nothing. I just took over the beach,” she said, referring to the fact that she later bought the very beach the couple fought on. “The best revenge is success, right?”
She is right on one thing, she can’t speak for something she didn’t live. Victims of sexual violence don’t often come forward directly after their assault for many reason that vary from victim to victim. This doesn’t mean the assault never happened. Only 2 to 10 percent of rape reports, turn out to be false, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.
Lohan didn’t stop there, she even went on to defend Harvey Wesinstein, after several women accused him of sexual assault. “I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on,” Lohan said in a now-deleted Instagram story. “I think Georgina [Chapman] needs to take a stand and be there for her husband.”
Lohan seems to be trying to empower women but may have missed this mark with her choice of words. Saying women ‘look weak’ when they share their #MeToo stories is a bit controversial to many. Do you think Lohan’s comment is uncalled for? 35% of people said yes, she is delusional, while 65% of people don’t think so, and think she is entitled to her own opinion.
