Lindsay Lohan Defends Harvey Weinstein Because He 'Never Harmed' Her and Twitter Isn't Having It

"He’s never harmed me or done anything wrong to me, so I think everyone needs to stop," actress says.

Lindsay Lohan defended Harvey Weinstein late Tuesday night after three women, including actress Asia Argento, accused the movie mogul of raping them.

The "Mean Girls" star, who is currently in Dubai, scolded Weinstein's fashion designer wife, Georgina Chapman, for leaving him and apparently believes he's innocent of any sexual assault or sexual harassment because she's never personally experienced it.

"I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now I don't think it’s right what is going on," she said in a selfie-style Instagram video. "I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband, and he’s never harmed me or done anything wrong to me, so I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong, so stand up."

She either doesn't care or completely missed what happened when fashion designer Donna Karan suggested in a red carpet interview Sunday that Weinstein's female victims may have been "asking for it." Twitter pounced and shortly after, Karan released a statement apologizing for her comments.

Lohan is following in Karan's footsteps -- minus the apology, so far. Lohan's name was one of the top trends on Twitter Wednesday morning and people, as you can imagine, are far from supportive. Rose McGowan, an actress who has been busy taking a strong stand against Weinstein, is surprisingly understanding.

"Please go easy on Lindsay Lohan," she tweeted Wednesday morning. "Being a child actor turned sex symbol twists the brain in ways you can’t comprehend."
