David Letterman Is Getting Backlash for Lindsay Lohan Interview in Which He Pestered Her About Rehab

Lindsay Lohan‘s 2013 interview with David Letterman is getting a lot of attention right now in the wake of the Framing Britney Spears documentary.

The doc about Britney highlighted some of the misogynistic and inappropriate interviews that she had to sit through during her youth, including ones conducted by Diane Sawyer and Matt Lauer.

Now, people on social media are pointing out how Letterman incessantly asked Lindsay about her time in rehab while she kept telling him to stop.

Lindsay was on The Late Show with David Letterman in April 2013 to promote her role in the movie Scary Movie 5 and she was asked about her upcoming stint in rehab.

Just minutes into the interview, Letterman asked, “Aren’t you supposed to be in rehab now?” Lindsay appeared to be caught off guard and answered by saying she would be entering rehab on May 2, that she’d be there for three months, and she’s gone several times before.

After he asked what she was going to rehab for, Lindsay said, “We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview.” She then added, “I think, to be honest, I’m the happiest when I’m working, and the healthiest. And this is an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a blessing.”

Letterman continued to ask Lindsay if she addiction issues. She responded, “Now you sound like Dr. Phil.” After he wouldn’t let the subject go, Lindsay told him, “We’re here for a movie. Let’s stay on the positive.”

Later on in the interview, Letterman wanted to read Lindsay a list of things that have been said about her and she grabbed the list so she could review it first. After reading it over, she said, “You can’t make a joke of it. That’s so mean. We’re not doing that.”

A lot of people are speaking out now that this clip is spreading around on social media.
