Anderson Cooper Slams Lindsay Lohan for Criticizing Amanda Bynes: 'Just Do Your Job' (VIDEO)
Lindsay Lohan may be staying out of trouble, but Anderson Cooper isn't giving her a free pass after her recent comments about fellow embattled star Amanda Bynes.
The CNN anchor slammed Lohan on his daytime talk show Tuesday after the Liz & Dick actress complained about Bynes' recent run-ins with the law.
"If I'm Lindsay Lohan, I would just be quiet and just do your job," he said after reading Lohan's Twitter rant against the former Nickelodeon star. "Get off Twitter, just stop hanging out and just do your job and comeback."
Despite his harsh criticism, Cooper expressed that he wishes nothing but the best for Lohan.
"Everybody loves a comeback -- everybody's rooting for you," Cooper said, referencing Lohan. "Just do your job. I feel bad for her; I wish her nothing but the best."
On Sunday, Lohan, 26, launched into a rant on her personal Twitter about her unfair treatment with the police, writing, “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?"
Lohan’s complaints were a bit off-base, as Bynes is currently faces three charges: one DUI and two counts of misdemeanor hit-and-run for incidents occurring on April 6, 10 and August 4, respectively.
That's not all: the 26-year-old was pulled over by police at 8:20AM on Sunday, and her car was subsequently impounded after police discovered her license had been suspended.
She has since been spotted taking cabs around Hollywood.
“Her car was impounded and she received a misdemeanor citation ... She was not arrested. I believe she was by herself. This occurred on Hollywood Way, just south of the main entrance to the Bob Hope Airport,” Victor Gill of the Burbank Airport Police said shortly after the incident occurred.
The She's The Man actress is due in court on Sept. 21. If convicted, she could face up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Lohan, meanwhile, is gearing up for a comeback with her three latest films: a Lifetime biopic of Elizabeth Taylor titled Liz & Dick, a Bret Easton Ellis-helmed flick named The Canyons and Scary Movie 5.
