Lindsay Lohan says women speaking out in the #MeToo movement 'look weak'

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay has made some shocking comments about the #MeToo campaign

Lindsay Lohan isn't letting the backlash from her recent comments on the #MeToo movement keep her from doing her thing in Greece. I am going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think women speaking against these things, it makes them seem weak when they're very strong women. Lohan said of the fact that she's never experienced any sexual misconduct during her years working in the entertainment industry. You have these girls who come out, who do not even know who they are, who do it just for the attention. Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways.

She went on to say: "If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment".

Of course, those comments garnered a widespread backlash online.

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".

During a recent interview with The Times in the United Kingdom, the Mean Girls star shared her thoughts on the movement, which has highlighted the prevalence of sexual harassment and sexual assault in society.

During the interview, Lohan also doubted all those coming forward are doing it for the right reasons. "The best revenge is success, right?" "I don't think it's right, what's going on".

Shortly after the Harvey Weinstein abuse allegations surfaced, Lohan also defended the movie mogul, saying of the allegations, "I think everyone needs to stop; I think it's wrong".

"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".

Her original Instagram post was deleted but her lives on via Twitter.
