Lindsay Lohan faces ban from India

Lindsay Lohan could be banned from travelling to India following a documentary and false child trafficking claims.

By Dean Nelson in New Delhi

Hollywood actress and model Lindsay Lohan could be blacklisted by the Indian government following her trip to the country last December when she falsely claimed she had rescued 40 child workers.

Her comments, which highlighted the plight of child labourers, ruffled feathers in India and alerted officials who discovered she had broken the country's visa rules by travelling as a tourist while working on a BBC documentary.

The Mean Girls star had arrived in India to film an expose of child labour and trafficking of women which was later broadcast on BBC3, but she provoked a row when she claimed to have personally rescued 40 children.

In a series of updates on the social networking site Twitter, she boasted of her role in a daring raid on a child labour sweatshop and claimed the experience had changed her life.

"Over 40 children saved so far ... Within one day's work ... This is what life is about ... Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!" she said.

She later contrasted the superficiality of celebrity life with the satisfaction of social activism.

"Focusing on celebrities and lies is so disconcerting, when we can be changing the world one child at a time ... hope everyone can see that," she said.

She and Sean Penn need to team up. Together they could save the world and stuff.

Used to be so. Now I am afraid that she would age horribly fast just like other out-of-control celebrities before her.

>>”Over 40 children saved so far ... Within one day’s work ... This is what life is about ... Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!”

So Lindsey swoops in and “saves the chillun”. I wonder what happened the next day...

The “saved” kids try to go back to work so their families can eat, but they find that they’ve been replaced by 40 new kids, who were eager to get the job so their families can eat.

Now the original 40 are out of work and hungry.

When George Bush tries to export democracy to a nation, Lindsey says he’s evil and stupid. When Lindsey disrupts 40 families’ lives by trying to export the Hollywood vision of American Values, she thinks she’s Jesus.

Lohan should stick to flashing her privates in public and being drunk. That’s what she’s good at.

And yet, she seems in no hurry to give up her celebrity. Go figure.

She simply misspoke. What she meant to say was that she rescued 40 grams of cocaine from their vials.

P.S. Just in case you’re able to make it, I will be wrestling Lindsay in the nude in a giant tub of jello in Times Square this evening. Watch for me on the Jumbo-Tron!

Be sure to record the whole game and later post it on YouTube, and on FR, too.:-)
I won't be able to watch your ‘adventure’ in person.

I don’t think she is as bad as Sean Penn.

This girl is just pitiful and pathetic. Her fame and her parents ruined her. She is still redeemable only if she see’s. Her fame and money has cushioned her from accountability. She’s like so many others in hollywood who surround themselves with yes men and woman and thus blinds her to the truth. I pray for her soul.

I wonder if Intrade has the over/under on whether this chick will live past 40. I wouldn’t bet on it with her habits. If she lives to 40, she’ll look 60.

You are right about Lohan being pitiful and pathetic. Her parents used her as a cash cow instilling little or no values in her. When you think of other child stars who stayed out of trouble like Mayim Bialik it makes you wonder why.

It has to be the family that surrounds them that keeps them stable. Lindsey is horribly messed up and it’s a shame, it never had to be that way.

Lindsay should star in a new Tee-Vee reality show:

This questionably talented young woman hasn’t had a hit movie of any kind in years and she is her own physical and emotional train wreck. Apparently no one, even her own family cares anything about her at all only as it pertains to their well-being and profit. As is often the sad reality of people like Ms. Lohan, she’ll either end up dead at her own hands or at the least washed up , forgotten about and alone.
