Lindsay Lohan Defends Assaulting Syrian Family
Lindsay Lohan is used to being in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, but her latest controversy is next-level, even for her. But the child-star turned Greek night club mogul doesn’t really see what the big deal is. Over the weekend, Lohan—who recently signed a deal for an MTV reality show and has opened a string of relatively successful clubs in Mykonos—posted (and since deleted) a video of herself attempting to "save" a pair of Syrian children from their parents, as they were all evidently living on the streets. After being told that she was "ruining" Arabic culture by Lohan, the mother snapped and punched the star. "Hey everyone, I just want to show you a family that I met," Lohan said at the beginning of the video, as she got out of a car in Moscow. "A Syrian refugee family that I’m really worried about. They really need help." She continued: "Look at them, they’re trafficking children. I won’t leave until I take you. Now I know who you are. Don’t f*** with me. Hey kids. This is not Arab. You’re ruining Arab culture by doing this. You’re taking these children; they want to go. I’m with you, I’m with you boys, don’t worry. The whole world is seeing this right now." On Monday, Lohan was filmed walking nonchalantly down the streets of Paris grinning at paparazzi. An Instagram post put up after the video was published reads: "Life is a series of tiny little miracles. Notice them." She tagged it: "#B4yourself #LOHANFOUNDATION #DOWHATEVER IT #TAKES @lohanbeachhousemykonos."
