Lindsay Lohan Defends Harvey Weinstein in Now-Deleted Instagram Video

Even with virtually everyone who’s ever met him, from Jennifer Lawrence to the Obamas, denouncing Harvey Weinstein and his alleged decades-long pattern of sexual assault, there are still a few people willing to step up in his defense. On Sunday night it was Donna Karan, who defended the “wonderful things” Weinstein has done and wondered whether women might be “asking for it” in a red-carpet interview; on Monday she walked it all back with an apology. Now, it’s time for Lindsay Lohan to weigh in, with sympathy for Weinstein and strong words for his wife, Georgina Chapman, who announced Tuesday night that she intends to leave her husband of 10 years.

“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now,” Lohan said in a now-deleted Instagram video posted Monday night from, she said, Dubai. “I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband. 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.”

Lohan has been in two Weinstein Company productions, Bobby and Scary Movie 5, in small supporting roles.

The video, like so many things Lohan has done recently, is just on the bizarre side; she’s speaking in her self-described “LiLohan” European-lilted accent and implying that she now lives in Dubai. But for those only now tuning in, this is all emblematic of Lohan’s social-media presence, which—with the help of her intrepid manager, Scott Carlsen—has kept Lohan in warm-ish tabloid headlines about things like her birthday party. She may not be the star she once was, but she knows how to craft an image . . . which is likely why, one hour after being posted, the video was deleted. Harvey Weinstein will have to keep looking for defenders elsewhere.

Over the course of four years, Lohan went from being one of the highest-paid young actresses to virtually unemployable. “She's Hollywood kryptonite,” said a film publicist.

Lohan seems eager to work her way back into Hollywood’s good graces. “And if that takes not going out to a club at night, so be it,” she says. “It’s not fun anyway.”
