Lindsay Lohan defends Harvey Weinstein

Turns out Harvey Weinstein still has one friend left in the world: Lindsay Lohan.

“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now,” she said in an Instagram post. “I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband. He’s never harmed me or done anything to me. We’ve done several movies together. Everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. Stand up.”

Actor Terry Crews says a Hollywood honcho groped him

Lohan, who appeared in Weinstein’s Atlanta-filmed “Scary Movie 5,” deleted the clip but the Internet is forever. Buzzfeed’s Lauren Yap captured it:

The New York Times’ bombshell report detailed decades of sexual misconduct allegations. This New Yorker piece quotes several women, on the record, leveling accusations that Weinstein assaulted them. The New York Times also posted this piece quoting Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie saying Weinstein harassed them.

Weinstein’s wife said in a statement she’s had it.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband,” Chapman said in a statement to People. “Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”

Weinstein’s been repudiated by much of Hollywood and his former political chums. A big donor to Democrats, Weinstein’s actions have been condemned in statements from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and U.S. Sen. Nancy Pelosi.
