Lindsay Lohan spoke out in defense of Harvey Weinstein amid his sexual misconduct allegations in a now-deleted video on Instagram, and fans took to Twitter to share their outrage.
Lohan shared her support of Weinstein in an Instagram video which she deleted just one hour later. According to People magazine, she posted the video in the early hours of Wednesday morning local time in the United Arab Emirates, where she is currently living.
Fans were quick to record and share the video.
“Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan. I’m in Dubai. I’m home,” she said in her newly developed accent. “I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”

Lohan said Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, should stand by him. Chapman announced she was leaving Weinstein in a statement to People magazine earlier Tuesday night.
The actress continued: “He’s never harmed me or did anything to me. We’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So, stand up.”
Fans were quick to slam the actress on Twitter.

PSA: Lindsay Lohan is using her weird accent on Instagram to defend Harvey Weinstein right now and there’s not enough wine in the world.— Justin Kirkland (@justinkirkland4) October 11, 2017
Lindsay Lohan is the definition of a rapist apologist. “He didn’t rape me and I think he’s a good guy” is such a disgusting stance.— Goth Dad ⚰️🦇 (@thekassiopeia) October 11, 2017
“Please go easy on Lindsay Lohan. Being a child actor turned sex symbol twists the brain in ways you can’t comprehend,” McGowan posted.
UPDATE: Prosecutors said they did not have enough evidence in 2015 to charge Harvey Weinstein with sexual assault, despite an audio recording secretly taken at the behest of the New York Police Department by a woman who claimed the Hollywood film producer groped her.
