Lindsay Lohan came out in support of disgraced Hollywood studio boss, Harvey Weinstein, even as several of her peers publicly condemned his actions.
In a now deleted video posted on her Instagram, Hollywood actor Lindsay Lohan, leapt to Weinstein’s defence after he was accused of sexually harassing and assaulting a number of colleagues for nearly three decades.
In the video, Lohan said, “Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan. I’m in Dubai, I’m home, and I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
The Mean Girls star shared one more video which has also been deleted, calling for Harvey’s wife Georgina Chapman, to “stand up” for her husband after the fashion designer announced she was leaving him.

“I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband. And he’s never harmed me or did anything wrong to me. We’ve done several movies together, and so I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”
Lindsay wrote Harvey’s name over the clip and put a halo-clad emoji.
Harvey was executive producer of Lindsay’s 2013 film Scary Movie 5 - in which she starred as herself - and had a special thanks credit on her 2006 motion picture Bobby, which told the story of the assassination of Robert F Kennedy.
The Canyons star is not the only big-name to have come out in Weinstein’s defence following the claims.
Fashion designer Donna Karan defended Harvey, suggesting women who dress sensually could be “asking for it”.
But she later said that her comments were “taken out of context” and said sorry to anyone she had “offended” anyone.
Several Hollywood A-listers have hit out at Harvey over the allegations, including Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep.
Other names include Rose McGowan, Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence.
