Lindsay Lohan Defends Mom, Lashes Out At Dr. Phil

Based on Twitter reactions, media stories and comments underneath articles, most people who watched the Dina Lohan interview on Dr. Phil seem to have come away wondering about the same overarching question. What the hell is wrong with her? Not surprisingly, however, her daughter Lindsay seems to have gotten the exact opposite impression. Rather than a crazy woman drunk or on pills, she saw a television host being a bully.
To get out her frustration and make it clear where she stands, Lindsay took to Twitter and unloaded on Dr. Phil. The tweet in question has since been deleted from her account, but you can take a look at what it said below…
”@DrPhil You should be ashamed of yourself. What kind of man takes advantage of a woman @her most vulnerable state? YOU are the fraud.”
I think this tweet was meant to be a pretty snappy middle finger, but it raises more questions than answers. For example: why is Dina in a vulnerable state? Is she always just too immature and stupid to conduct an interview, or does she currently have alcohol and prescription drug problems? Why should Dr. Phil be ashamed of himself for airing an interview Dina agreed to? How does that make him a fraud?
Given Lindsay’s willingness to discard this tweet, it seems highly unlikely we’ll get any answers to the above questions. In the hours since, the actress has sent out several messages that praise her mother without tearing anyone else down. It’s a good thing her first impulse is to defend her mother, but given how crazy she seemed during the interview, she should probably be asking Dina some hard questions in private too.
