Lindsay Lohan Defends Harvey Weinstein, Tells Georgina Chapman to ‘Be There For Her Husband’
In a bizarre pair of videos uploaded to her Instagram story
Tuesday night, actress Lindsay Lohan surprised
her 6 million followers (or perhaps she didn’t surprise them at
all) by expressing her support for accused sexual harasser and
rapist Harvey Weinstein.
In the first clip—on which she used that gradated
purple-to-orange filter—Lohan said:
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
In the second—suddenly black & white and accented with the
word “Harvey” and a halo emoji—she continued in that
inexplicable accent of hers:
I think Georgina [Weinstein] needs to take a stand and be
there for her husband. And he’s never harmed me or done
anything wrong to me. We’ve done several movies together. So
I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So stand
The videos have since been deleted from her story.
On a related note, Matt Damon denies recent
reports that he and Russell Crowe helped kill
a 2004 Weinstein expose written by Sharon
Waxman. In a highly publicized piece about the
years-long and oft-thwarted campaign to expose Weinstein’s
alleged behavior published Sunday on The
Wrap, Waxman wrote:
After intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having
Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for
Lombardo and unknown discussions well above my head at the
Times, the story was gutted.
In an interview with Deadline published Tuesday, Damon
said his and Crowe’s 2004 call to Waxman was about something
completely innocuous—a”one-minute” chat about working with
producer Fabrizio Lombardo—and that he “is not
the story.” He added:
For the record, I would never, ever, ever try to kill a story
like that. I just wouldn’t do that. It’s not something I
would do, for anybody.
From Weinstein to Damon, and now, from Damon to Affleck. In a
Twitter thread from late Tuesday night, One Tree Hill
actress and former MTV VJ Hilarie Burton
confirmed memories from fans that she was groped by Ben
Affleck on TRL in 2003, when she was just 21.
“He also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on
TRL once. Everyone forgot though,” a Twitter
user named Shanice Brim said in response to another tweet about
Ben Affleck’s character.
Burton responded to Brim, writing, “I didn’t forget…I
was a kid.”
She then posted a video from a TRL Uncensored during
which her groping is, as The Daily Beast put it, “presented as a
lighthearted glimpse at life behind the scenes on TRL,
with a comment suggesting she had laughed off the incident as a
form of psychological defense.”
And now, Wendy Williams.
Here she is on discussing allegations that Nelly raped a young
woman on Tuesday’s show, saying, “If [the alleged
victim] hadn’t put herself in that situation, this would not
have happened. Allegedly. And Nelly, you’re too
