Lindsay Lohan Claims She Was Bullied, Reaches Out to Katie Couric on Twitter
Lindsay Lohan was apparently very moved by a recent episode of Katie, as evident by a series of now-deleted tweets in which the troubled 26-year-old starlet revealed that she was bullied in high school.
Reaching out to host Katie Couric, Lohan thanked the affable host for profiling Whitney Kropp, a 16-year-0ld high school student who was nominated for homecoming queen as a joke.
"I think what you did today on your show for #WhitneyKropp was lovely," Lohan wrote (via BuzzFeed). "It had me crying. I'd love to meet her. #stopbullying"
"I was actually bullied @ my public school when I would leave to film. Whenever I came back… girls & boys would call me names," she continued.
And she didn't stop there.
In a series of subsequent tweets, Lohan -- who this Thanksgiving will play Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick -- elaborated on her experience dealing with kids in high school:
They would yell things, try to trip me & more…I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while. They would also mock me because of my home situation, when people found out that my father was in jail…So I can relate to the girls that you spoke to on your show today. I appreciate you reaching out to them. xoCouric, being the affable host that she is, later responded on her own Twitter account, writing, "Whitney really is an inspiration. So glad u caught this ep & r sharing ur experience-helps raise awareness 4 this impt issue!!"
Looks like Couric's talent booker has a busy day ahead of them.
