We knew it wouldn't take long for Michael Lohan to speak out!
Earlier today, we reported that Dwight Gooden had spoken out about his former Celebrity Rehab costar, referring to him as a "head case!" Well apparently Lindsay Lohan's pops heard it through the grape vine as well and was NOT happy about it!
Michael shot back at the former New York Yankee, saying:
"I am sorry that Dwight is in such a bad place. He used to stay in touch with me but he fell off the wagon and into his dugout mode."
Ha! Get it? Dugout mode! Because he played baseball…
Anywho, Michael went on to throw a few more jabs at him and said Dwight was upset because he previously tried to help him get treatment:
"I am surprised he said that, but maybe it's because I work in the recovery business and I recently tried to get him to go into treatment. I guess he isn't throwing strike outs as much as striking out himself. Just another wild pitch! I hope he gets well."
We get it, Michael! He used to be a pitcher!!
Crappy sports puns aside, we can't help but feel like Michael's remarks hit just a tad below the belt! Shooting back at Dwight is one thing, but to make jokes and accuse him of relapsing isn't really a laughing matter!
This is normally where we'd end with a silly joke about Michael striking out with his comments, but he sort of beat us to the punch! LOLz!
