“I would like to unreservedly apologize for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview with The Times. 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. 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,” she said.

“I feel very strongly about the #MeToo movement and have the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences. Their testimony has served to protect those who can’t speak, and give strength to those who have struggled to have their voices heard.”

Lindsay sparked backlash and much controversy with her initial statements.

“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women,” she previously said to The Times. See more from that interview here.

    Lindsay Lohan shouldn’t be afraid to criticize the #MeToo movement. It’s not a 100% perfect and she is not the only girl saying it either. Serious professional industries don’t have this as an “overwhelming” issue like “Hollywood”. Just Saying.

    It’s like she wrote the apology statement before she made the comments. Like she planned this whole thing…she planned to say something controversial and was expecting there to be some huge outrage that she would have to issue an apology for…didn’t happen but she released the apology anyway. Good ol Lindsay…still trying to make herself happen again.

    My thoughts exactly.

    She needs to crawl.back under that rock where she was hiding.

    I thought it was just for publicity when I first read what she said and as you say, it’s now seems obvious that’s what it was.
