Lindsay Lohan Defends Harvey Weinstein Amid Sexual Assault Allegations
Lindsay Lohan is sharing her support for Harvey Weinstein.
Just one week after the New York Times published their explosive investigation where several women claimed misconduct allegations against the movie producer, the Mean Girls star is defending him.
And, not only is she defending him, the actress also says his wife, Georgina Chapman, should stand by his side.
The Freaky Friday star revealed her thoughts in two now-deleted Instagram Story videos on Tuesday, October 10.

"I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don't think it's right what's going on," the 31-year-old said.
"I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband."
Lindsay 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."
Oh Lindsay, just because he’s never done something to you doesn’t mean he hasn’t done it to others!
Earlier in the day, the 65-year-old’s wife announced she was leaving her husband.
"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” the Marchesa designer said to People.
"I have chosen to leave my husband."
She continued, "Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time."
Countless women have accused the Hollywood honcho of misconduct, including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino, and Rosanna Arquette.
And, just yesterday, three women came forward accusing the father of five of rape — actress Asia Argento, Lucia Evans, and an unnamed woman — as reported in the New Yorker.
Harvey attempted to apologize for his actions after the news broke and announced he’s seeking therapy.
"I came of age in the 60's and 70's, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then," he said in a statement.
"I have since learned it's not an excuse, in the office — or out of it. To anyone. I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed."
He continued, "I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go. That is my commitment."
