Lindsay Lohan spoke out in defense of Harvey Weinstein amid his sexual misconduct allegations in a since-deleted video on Instagram, and fans took to Twitter to share their outrage.


Lohan shared her support of Weinstein in an Instagram video which she deleted just one hour later. According to PEOPLE, she posted the video in the early hours of Wednesday morning local time in the UAE, where she is currently located. Fans were quick to record and share the video, so her attempt to delete it was in vain.

“Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan, I’m in Dubai. I’m home,” she said in her newly developed accent. “I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”

Lohan said that she thinks Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, should stand by him (Chapman announced she was leaving Weinstein in a statement to PEOPLE earlier on Tuesday night.)

The actress continued, “He’s never harmed me or did anything to me. We’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So, stand up.”

Fans were quick to slam the actress on Twitter following the video.

Many high profile actresses, including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Judd have come forward with allegations about the famed producer.

Weinstein reportedly plans to enter a treatment facility at an undisclosed location.
