Lindsay Lohan posted a video on Instagram from her bathroom in Dubai where she expressed support for Harvey Weinstein amid multiple sexual assault allegations against him.
“Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan,” the 31-year-old actress said in the now deleted clips. “I’m in Dubai, I’m home, and I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
The 26-second clip then shifts to black and white, adding a halo-clad smiley with “Harvey” written above it in red. “I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband,” Lohan continued.
Georgina Chapman, Weinstein’s wife, told People yesterday she was leaving her husband.
In a statement to People, Chapman said, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
In her video, Lohan continued, “And he’s never harmed me or did anything wrong to me. We’ve done several movies together, and so I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”

Lohan starred in two movies distributed by The Weinstein Company. One was the 2006 film Bobby, about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, and the other was the 2013 parody Scary Movie 5, in which she played herself.
The Harvey Weinstein scandal continues to grow darker and darker by the minute as more women are coming out against the disgrace move mogul with more allegations of sexual harassment and even rape. His company recently fired him, will likely rename itself and recently pulled out of Outfest’s Legacy Awards, an LGBTQ film event.
However, another person is speaking out saying we shouldn’t “care” about Weinstein’s abuse of power, and that is gay porn star Jake Porter.
The Andrew Christian underwear model and Men.com star took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to tell his fans that he “doesn’t give a fuck about Harvey Weinstein” because “it has absolutely 0 to do with anything going on in the real world.”
Guess who doesn't give a fuck about Harvey Weinstein? This guy! It has absolutely 0 to do w/ anything going on in the real world #whocares

As Str8UpGayPorn (link NSFW) points out:
It should come as no surprise that accusations of sexual harassment and rape don’t matter and aren’t part of the “real world” for someone like Jake Porter, as he’s been a longtime supporter of another alleged rapist, Donald Trump, as well as a strong defender of notorious misogynist and professional internet troll Milo Yiannopoulos.
