Did Lindsay Lohan Compare Herself To An Iranian Woman About To Be Stoned To Death?
Because bawling in court wasn’t enough, Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter last night to complain about her 90-day prison sentence. Quoting from the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Lohan clearly seems to think spending three months in the pokey is cruel and inhuman punishment. But then she linked to a Newsweek story about Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman who is set to be stoned to death, and asked her followers to retweet. Now, the 140-character limit on Twitter does make it easy to take things out of context, but given that LiLo has never given a hoot about women’s rights in the Middle East before, I’m guessing that quoting the U.N. human rights doc still had everything to do with her personal situation. So was she directly comparing her sentence to that of Ashtiani’s, who, may I remind you, is going to be stoned to death? While I was watching Lohan’s Twitter rant unfold last night — because reloading LiLo’s Twitter page is how I spend a wild Wednesday evening — I Twittered that she needed to get some perspective (yo). Maybe she did — and then missed the point entirely.
