Lindsay Lohan Responds To Perez Hilton’s Shameful Claim That She’s Cutting Herself
Lindsay Lohan is the latest victim of Perez Hilton‘s reckless sensationalism, with the blogger desperately trying to stir controversy by suggesting that the actress is cutting herself.
Perez takes a picture of Lohan from a Paris Fashion Week event and draws an arrow pointing to what he calls a “disturbing image” of a “fresh scar” on the star’s left arm (see right). He scribbles over the photo, “Are u seeing this” and further writes, “We’ve seen that kind of scar on HER before. We have a deep, dark feeling we know exactly what is going on – and we want it to stop.”
Actually, he has NO clue what’s going on. There’s a minor, barely visible scratch below Lohan’s elbow. You have to work pretty hard to turn a tiny scrape that no one else even noticed into a warning sign of serious self-mutilation, and that’s exactly what Perez does, hoping to turn Lohan into a cutter.
He scolds, “Honey, what is wrong with you? Why aren’t you getting any better? Why are you still the hottest mess of the Western Hemisphere? What’s it going to take to get you back on the right track???” Those questions, of course, are better directed at Perez himself.
Self-harm is a real and grave issue for young people everywhere. Women like Demi Lovato speak about their experiences in the hopes that they can help others from going down a similar path. Perez, meanwhile, trivializes cutting to take a cheap shot at Lindsay Lohan. Lohan tells Gossip Cop the blogger is 100% wrong with his cutter allegations, saying, “That’s crazy.”
