Lindsay Lohan Is Freaked Out By Little People?!

Hey, we all come in different shapes and sizes. Nothing wrong with that!

But if you happen to be a little person, you might want to steer clear of Lindsay Lohan!

According to onlookers at a Hollywood hotspot, LiLo had a near panic attack when two little people walked by her. An eye witness explained:

"She hyperventilated. Someone had to give her an antianxiety pill to calm her down. She kept saying, ‘I’m so scared of them!’”

Um…ok. Couple of things here.

First of all, suuuuper insensitive, Linds. Little people are just that - PEOPLE! If that’s really how you react when one of them walks by, you’ve got to realize how offensive that sort of behavior is.

And second, what exactly are you afraid of? They're little, not zombies. Cool your jets.

Standing 5’5” herself, it sounds like Lohan suffers from achondroplasiaphobia, or the fear of little people. We think it’s sad that that’s even a thing.

Little People of America, the organization that provides support and information to people of short stature, offered some advice to Lindsay on how she can get over her hang up against those shorter than her. They released a statement, saying:

“Lohan should treat her fear the same as she would a fear of any other protected minority population. If that fails, she might find diversity training to be useful.”

Rehab got her clean and sober. Maybe some sensitivity training will help her overcome this obstacle next!

    Lindsay Lohan is afraid of little people, according to Life & Style.

    The tabloid says the actress “may be working to stay sober — but it’s not just drugs and alcohol she’s steering clear of.”

    “She has achondroplasiaphobia,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine, meaning the actress supposedly has a “fear of little people.”

    The “insider” explains, “In 2006, at the Chateau Marmont, she was with pals when two little people walked by and she started having a major anxiety attack! She hyperventilated. Someone had to give her an anti-anxiety pill to calm her down. She kept saying, ‘I’m so scared of them!’”

    Wait.

    The only “evidence” the magazine can come up with for this ridiculous allegation is a single anecdote from seven years ago?

    That’s pathetic.

    If you’re going to make up something this absurd, at least get an “insider” who’s been with Lohan sometime this past half-decade.

    In any case, a source close to the actress tells Gossip Cop the Life & Style report is ludicrous and false.

    “Lindsay loves all people,” adds a rep for Lohan.

    Re: overthere – Sorry. Correction: When all else fails, dwell on the past…OR make something up. Haha These people have nothing better to do, than write rumors or what have you about celebrities. What a career.

    Fear of little people is an existing phobia. There is no recognized term meaning fear of small people, dwarfs, or midgets. However, two have been proposed:
    – achondroplasiphobia - referencing the genetic disparity of bodily proportions
    – nanosophobia - from the Greek word for dwarf, nanos/nannos

    Get off your high horse. I never thought I'd be defending Lindsay Lohan but having a fear against little people is a legitimate fear and it is called Achondroplasiaphobia. There's absolutely no reason to be afraid of water, or spiders or going outside, yet, all of those are also legitimate phobias and you aren't giving those people shit for their fears!
