Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan recently has apologized for her comments to those women she made on the #MeToo movement, as per People magazine.
The actress was in an interview with The Times where she said: ''If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment. You make it a real thing by making it a police report. 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''.
Earlier, she did not agree with the #MeToo movement and she said that women sharing their stories of harassment and abuses makes them look “weak”
“I would like to unreservedly apologise 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.”
It looks like people on Twitter are not quite happy with the way Lohan responded to the controversy.
Typical bullshit apology that so many in similar situations make; 'I'm sorry for ANY PAIN I MAY HAVE caused', rather than 'I'm sorry for the pain I have caused'. Just swallow your pride woman & say it like you mean it, or don't say it at all #LindsayLohan— muffkin (@muffkin7) August 13, 2018
And i think #LindsayLohan is an idiot and we shouldn’t be giving her any more of a stage on this issue than we already have— Lizakaya (@lizakaya3) August 13, 2018
“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 clarified”.
“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”, she further added.
