Lindsay Lohan Walks Back Her Controversial #MeToo Comments, Releases New Statement Apologizing For ‘Any Pain I May Have Caused’
Time for Lindsay Lohan to walk things back a bit…
The actress made some controversial comments about the #MeToo movement this week, going so far as to call out women who speak out against harassment as “looking weak,” but now, she’s trying to set the record straight.
The embattled star issued a new statement to People on Sunday afternoon, apologizing for her remarks and the pain that she may have caused by them.
Here is her statement, in full (below):
“I would like to unreservedly apologize for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview with The Times. The quote solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it. However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent. I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused. I feel very strongly about the #MeToo movement and have the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences. Their testimony has served to protect those who can’t speak, and give strength to those who have struggled to have their voices heard.”
Not a bad statement, as far as public apologies go — what do U think, though, Perezcious readers?!
