Lindsay Lohan accused of trying to kidnap refugee children in Instagram livestream

Lindsay Lohan isn't recognized for any type of humanitarian work, but the actress seems to have human rights on her mind.

The Mean Girls actress, 32, said on the Instagram video, "Hey everyone, I just want to show you a family that I met, a Syrian refugee family that I'm really anxious about. They really need help".

She attempts to speak Arabic and tells them they are ruining Arabic culture before trying to grab the hand of one of the boys. Turning to one of the young sons, Lohan says: "Do you want to stay in a hotel tonight?" Still broadcasting live, she followed them, and began hurling her accusations their way.

Regardless of her good intentions, she approached this family to use them to gain points on social media and when they didn't immediately fall for her act, she became aggressive and harassed them. Lindsay asks the boys if they are excited - but then, the family heads the opposite direction of her auto. I'm with you, I'm with you.


When the family does not follow her lead, she then offers to take all of them, but tells the adult male that he can't come before joking that the child should "run". Back then, when she only owned two of her three Oscars, Streep gushed about Lohan, called her a "fantastic actress." It's not clear if the family is Syrian, but Lohan claims that they are in her video, which has since been deleted. "Come with me, I'll take care of you guys". All we can see is the camera get jolted, falling to the ground and then a stunned Lohan pops up on the screen, crying. Unfortunately, she also affects a fake accent for most of the video.

"I'm like in shock right now, I'm just like so scared", she said emotionally before the video ended. No wonder the mother acted the way she did; if someone was trying to take my children away from me and threatening me, I'd push her too.

After watching the odd spectacle unfold, Twitter users attempted to make sense of what they had just seen, with the general consensus being that Lohan had gone completely off the rails. Lohan has been laying low for a while, but this aggressive act of unsolicited kindness is putting her back in the spotlight.
