Lindsay Lohan tried to help out a seemingly homeless family of four who she believed were “a Syrian refugee family” — but it went so, so wrong.
The Among the Shadows star posted a strange video on Instagram Live Saturday, showing her approaching a man and woman sitting on a sidewalk with two boys huddled under a blanket. After some light conversation, the 32-year-old insists on helping the woman and her sons by paying for a hotel room for them.
Eventually, the group stands up. Lindsay asks the boys if they are excited — but then, the family heads the opposite direction of her car. Now confused and frightened, Lindsay cries out:
“Look what’s happening. They’re trafficking children. I won’t leave until I take you.”
Lindsay then follows the family, shouting:
“Now I know who you are. Don’t f**k with me. Hey kids! You’re ruining Arab culture by doing this. You’re taking these children. They want to go. I’m with you boys, don’t worry. The whole world is seeing this right now. I will walk forever.”
She didn’t walk forever. Lindsay tried to approach one of the boys and take him by the hand, causing the woman to angirly protest and get into a scuffle with the actress.
The camera drops and, after a moment, Lindsay picks it back up as she clutches her cheek in pain. She tearfully says:
“She just… I’m like in shock, people.”
So is everyone who watched this. See the bizarre incident go down (below).
