Lindsay Lohan Apologizes for Saying #MeToo Movement Makes Women Look 'Weak'

Lindsay Lohan has issued a statement backtracking some rather ridiculous comments she made about the #MeToo movement.

If you recall, she said that women coming forward about their sexual harassment makes them look ‘week’ — and now she’s apologizing.

via TMZ:

LiLo issued a statement Sunday apologizing for her remarks and any harm inflicted. She says … “The quote solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it.”

She continues … “However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent. I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused.”

The original comment came out recently in a Times interview, in which she criticized some women for coming out with their stories of sexual abuse way after the fact — rather than address it in the moment — and added speaking out now made strong women “look weak.”

She’s clearing that up now though, insisting she has “the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences.”

She should’ve known better.
