Prepare for your eyeballs to roll so far back into your head they nearly go all the way round: Lindsay Lohan has said she believes women that discuss their Me Too stories of sexual assault ‘look weak’. Oh dear.
Speaking to The Times, Lohan boldly stated: ‘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 also told the publication that she thinks some women reveal their stories for attention: ‘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’, she continued.
These admissions are hardly surprising when taking into account Lohan’s defence of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein last year. Speaking in an Instagram video, she told followers: ‘I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. He’s never harmed me or did anything to me’.
Despite making these misguided statements, the actor was adamant about the fact that she does in fact support her fellow women.
‘Look, I am very supportive of women’, she told The Times. ‘Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways.’
