I cannot believe that I am blogging about this.
For the record:
I am neither pro or anti Lindsay Lohan. I don't follow her on Twitter. I have never written anything for her. The only thought I have about the Lohans in general is how did they manage to make their reality show SO BORING?
But you can't swing a dead cat without running smack into TMZ, her "fuck you" nails, and her crying at sentencing.
To be fair, I'd cry if I was being sentenced to jail, too. Of course, I'd probably comply with the terms of my probation. But that's neither here nor there.
Today the talk has been about the following tweet:
The backlash has been, well, predictable. Entitled has-been Hollywood actress living in an over-privileged coke-haze, etc. etc. Some sites, like Jezebel, even have "the whole rant." I've cut and pasted it for you below. Start at the bottom, and read up.
Insane, right? Entitled has-been Hollywood actress living in an over-privileged coke-haze....blah blah blah. You know the drill.
Now I'm gonna add one last tweet from her "rant." It was posted in the same time frame as what was posted above. Ready?
Clicking on that link takes you to a story about Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian mother of two who was condemned to death by stoning. (You can read the update to the story, and what you can do at Jessica Gottlieb's blog here.)
I don't even follow Lindsay Lohan on Twitter and I could figure out that she was talking about the stoning, not her sentencing, in 30 seconds or less.
Is she an entitled has-been Hollywood actress living in an over-privileged coke-haze? Yes. No. Maybe. I don't really care. She's not freaking Kim Jong-il. and she's never kicked my dog or called me asking if I wanted to hang out and then hung up the phone.
She screwed up, she's going to jail.
Isn't there enough material there with the hot lesbian prison hookups and 6126's jail-inspired orange leggings line without making shit up?
Listen, I understand that she's rife for tabloid fodder, but if you're gonna hoist someone by their own petard, make sure there's a petard to hoist.
Let's talk about the important questions instead....like what the hell is a petard?
EDITED TO ADD: How did I not include a link to HOW I HELPED START THE HILARY DUFF/LINDSAY LOHAN FEUD?!
