Lindsay Lohan Is “Canceled Forever” After Bashing #MeToo Movement

In a perplexing interview, Lindsay Lohan slammed the #MeToo movement … and said that coming forward with allegations of sexual abuse makes the accusers "look weak."

"I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak," Lindsay said. "When they are very strong women."

As if that weren't bad enough, she then went on to imply that maybe some of the young women shared harrowing stories of sexual harassment, abuse, and even rape were just in it for, you guessed it, "attention."

While that has been debunked time and time again, a lot of people were outraged and horrified.

We can only guess that they had forgotten that Lindsay had supported Harvey Weinstein, of all people, and encouraged his wife to stand by him.

Aisha Tyler, like so many others, took to social media to slam Lindsay.

When Aisha announced that Lindsay is canceled, it prompted a lot of discussion. Take a look:

Aisha received a lot of thoughtful responses. And also a lot of less thoughtful replies.

2. A classic internet burn

This is obviously a joke, poking fun at the fact that Lindsay hasn’t really been culturally relevant for about a decade.

3. Survivors spoke up

This tweet is absolutely right — speaking up takes a tremendous amount of strength.

4. Others chimed in with support

Speaking truth to power is a brave act.

5. As the young people say: we been knew

In other words, Lindsay Lohan was canceled a long time ago, in this person’s eyes.

6. Others were more sympathetic

A lot of people believe that Lindsay Lohan was just saying in the interview what she tells herself about her own life.

Lindsay Lohan Slams #MeToo Movement: These Women Are Weak!

Lindsay Lohan has been back in the news lately, which is exciting if you’re the kind of person who reflects fondly on Charlie Sheen’s meltdown, but highly triggering if you’re disturbed by the sight of track marks wending their way through an archipelago of ginger freckles.

We kid LiLo, of course.

By most accounts, the actress-turned-wannabe-reality-star is sober(-ish) these days — which makes her latest comments all the more baffling.

In case you’ve been blissfully unaware, Lohan is currently filming a new show for MTV, a reality series that’s been described as a “docu-series” focusing on Lindsay’s eponymous nightclub in Greece.

Sources say the show was “inspired” by the Bravo hit Vanderpump Rules (read: it’ll be a lame attempt to piggyback on that series’ success).

The show just started shooting and it’s not set to debut until next year, but Lohan is already basking in the media attention generated by news of the project.

And proving once again that you can take the girl out of Hollywood but you can’t stop her from saying idiotic things, Lindsay is already shooting herself in the foot every chance she gets.

During a recent interview, Lohan was asked about her thoughts regarding the #MeToo movement that’s shedding light on the rampant sexual assault and harassment that’s been plaguing Hollywood for decades.

Lindsay began by stating that she doesn’t “really have anything to say” … and she should have just left it there.

Instead, she pressed on with the sort of comments that would be career-ruiners — if Lindsay still had a career left to ruin.

“I can’t speak on something I don’t live, right? Look, I am very supportive of women. Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways,” Lohan began.

For reasons that defy logic or explanation, she went on to argue that victims discredit themselves by not reporting abuse immediately:

“If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment,” Lohan said.

“You make it a real thing by making it a police report,” she added.

“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women.”

Oof. Obviously the part about sexual assault survivors looking “weak” is getting the most attention on social media today, but this statement is atrocious for so many other reasons, as well.

Imagine telling an abuse survivor that their attack wasn’t “real” because they failed to report it prior to a deadline that exists only in Lindsay Lohan’s mind.

Hopefully, Lindsay doesn’t really believe this stuff, and she’s still just working as a mouthpiece for various foreign governments.

But if that’s the case, she should probably tell us soon before she’s forced to hire Paul Manafort’s legal team.

Amber Rose Slams #MeToo Movement; Does She Have a Point?

Outspoken feminist icon Amber Rose has spoken up about her frustrations with the #MeToo movement.

But unlike other critics of this trend, she's not a man with something to hide who fears that he'll be exposed next.

She's also not one of those thoroughly unwoke women who have been so shaped by the culture that they'll defend predators and shame victims just to feel accepted in the "boys club."

No, Amber has built a reputation based on sex positivity and intersectional awareness for years now.

Fans know her for her famous SlutWalk, and now those same fans are signing up in droves for her mysterious Slutbox, which we'll get to in a minute.

This is a woman who works to reclaim derogatory terms and make them empowering, and make no mistake, she's not condemning anyone for coming forward with their harrowing experiences.

So what is her issue with the #MeToo movement?

It's complicated, but she lays it out clearly …

1. Amber Rose starts by explaining exactly why she’s frustrated

Amber rose explains complicated issues
“With the #MeToo movement,” Amber explains. “It’s kind of very frustrating to me, because all of the sudden feminism became such a mainstream thing … now that white — no shade — white, rich actresses starting coming out and saying ‘me too, me too.'”

2. #MeToo, she says, didn’t say anything that marginalized groups haven’t been saying for decades

Amber rose speaks
“But what happened to all of us?” Amber continues. “What happened to the strippers and the LGBTQ community and the black girls in college?”

3. Rose touches on a related topic that white Hollywood too often forgets

Amber rose in a cap
“And going past that … black women don’t even make half as much as white women in movies.”

4. She’s right, by the way

Amber rose all smiles
The gender pay gap is real — in Hollywood and in most other industries. But what non-intersectional feminists so often forget to mention is that as white women make less than white men, women of color make even less than white women. It’s heartbreaking.

5. And Amber explains what, sadly, she believes it will take to make that change

The amber rose stare
“I really feel like it’s going to take, unfortunately, a white actress to come out and say ‘Hey, black women need to make as much as we do in movies,’ for there to actually be a change.”

6. Amber is exactly right about that, plain and simple

This isn’t hypothetical. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer recently revealed that as she and friend Jessica Chastain were talking about the gender pay gap when Octavia mentioned to her that it was even worse for women of color in Hollywood.
