Lindsay Lohan Reaches New Low with Latest Publicity Stunt

December 14, 2009

Lindsay Lohan was recently in India filming a documentary about child trafficking and boasted about saving 40 children. Well, it turns out she was telling fibs. Big fat ones.

Lindsay Lohan recently jetted into India with a BBC film crew and within one day was claiming success in stamping out child trafficking. She took to Twitter, writing, "Over *40 children saved* so far...... Within one day's work...... This is what life is about..... Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!" The troubled actress who is desperately trying to re-invent herself also Twittered, "Focusing on celebrities and lies is so disconcerting, when we can be changing the world one child at a time.... hope everyone can see that."

The trouble is she had no role in saving those children and her comments on Twitter have upset many in India. All Lohan did was visit the Ashram rehabilitation center the children were taken to after being freed. According to lawyer and social activist, known only as Bhuwan, Lohan and the BBC crew weren’t even in India when the children were saved. Ruchira Gupta, an anti-trafficking campaigner, said Lohan’s comments do more harm than good and that Lohan was “trivializing child-trafficking" for publicity’s sake.

Wow. I think LiLo just hit a new low.
