The #MeToo movement has been a necessary step forward toward a more inclusive, harassment-free, and equal future. Many famous men and women have been emboldened by the movement to speak out about the injustices, harassment, and sexual assault they suffered while working in Hollywood. And while support for the victims has been relatively unanimous, there’s one celebrity who isn’t on board: Lindsay Lohan.
Lindsay has been removed from the industry for quite some time, living in Europe and launching nightclubs, and even though she spoke about her abusive ex Egor Tarabosov to the New York Times as recently as June, she said in a new interview with UK publication the Times that she thinks the women speaking out in the #MeToo movement are weak.
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this,” Lindsay said, “but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women.”
She also stated she thinks some of the women are doing it for attention and added that women need to report bad behavior to the police as soon as it happens.
We are confused by Lindsay’s opinions, because she seems to think that silently holding onto your abuse makes you a “strong woman,” but she also requests that all women file police reports the second they encounter harassment. We are deeply dismayed that Lindsay, a survivor of abuse herself, holds such frustrating opinions.
