“I won’t leave until I take you. Now I know who you are. Don’t f*** with me"
Lindsay Lohan is facing criticism after livestreaming a bizarre confrontation with a homeless family in Russia.
The Mean Girls actor posted a live video on Instagram in which she initially offers the family-of-four a hotel room for the night. Lohan can be heard saying: “Hey everyone, I just want to show you a family that I met, a Syrian refugee family that I’m really worried about. They really need help.”
“You want to come with me? Come with me, I’ll take care of you guys,” she continues, then turns to the children to ask: “Do you want to stay in a hotel tonight? Do you want to watch movies? It would be so cool to watch a movie on a TV or a computer.”
The parents turn down the offer and Lohan can then be heard berating the mother, saying: “You should not have them [your sons] on the floor, you should be a hard-working woman and you should be doing what you [can] for your children, so they have a better life.
“If someone is offering them a home and a bed, which is me at the moment, give it to them. They will come back to you.”
“I won’t leave until I take you. Now I know who you are. Don’t f*** with me.”
At this point, the family decide to get up and walk away.
Lohan continues filming as she follows the family, shouting in a fake middle eastern accent: “Don’t fuck with Pakistan.”
Her commentary continues: “Look what’s happening, they’re trafficking children […] You’re ruining Arabic culture by doing this. I’m with you boys, don’t worry, the whole world is seeing this right now.”
Towards the end of the video, Lohan appears to grab for one of the children’s hands whereupon the mother appears to strike Lohan. At which point, the actor, now crying, turns the camera onto her face to say: “I’m in shock right now.”
