The likes of Rose McGowan, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep have spoken out about how appalled they are to hear sexual assault allegations about film producer Harvey Weinstein. However, Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan has taken a different stance and it's not going down well. The actress – who is now based in the Middle East – filmed a video from Dubai in which she says she feels bad for Harvey; a man who was recently terminated from his Weinstein company as a result.
In the clip posted on social media, 31-year-old Lindsay says that she thinks Harvey's should defend her man more aggressively.
"Hi this is Lindsay Lohan, hi I'm in Dubai, I'm home. I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, 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," she says in the video, which features an angel emoji next to Weinstein's name.
Many people on Twitter were annoyed that the star defended him simply because she hadn't been a victim.
"He's never harmed me or done anything to me and we've done several movies together and so I think everyone needs to stop. I think it's wrong, so stand up," she adds at the end of the clip.
While others took a more tongue-in-cheek jab at Lindsay for other unrelated reasons. Watch the video and see the reactions below:

@lindsaylohan by making this video YOU have now become part of the bigger societal issue that prevents women or men from speaking out
