Lindsay Lohan has been a Hollywood hot mess for the last decade. She has dealt with drug addiction, alcoholism, and public scandals to name a few. Her career declined as a result. Now she is doing something even crazier that has everyone collectively rolling their eyes. She has been photographed wearing the Islamic hijab.
The hijab is a headscarf worn by women in the Muslim faith. However, most in western and industrialized societies shun it and suggest not wearing them as they are representative of patriarchal oppression. It is her antics that she is more well known for than her acting ability.
Around her twenty-first birthday, she entered the Wonderland Center rehab facility in Los Angeles. A few months after being released she was stopped by a police officer and charged with Driving Under the Influence. Lohan was also charged with possession of cocaine and misdemeanor hit and run when she was involved in a fender bender back in Beverly Hills.
There are never-ending arrests, probations, court appearances, addictions and more in her life. All which provide a lot of scandals. When speaking to Oprah Lohan stated the following about herself,
“I’m a very spiritual person and I’ve become more spiritual as time has gone on. I’m really in touch, whether its prayer or meditation…there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I’ve been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.”
Wearing a hijab seems pretty mild compared to what she usually does. Her flirtation with Islam started two years ago in 2015. She was photographed in New York City holding a Quran. Later in the year, she was found on a Turkish talk show called Haber Turk.
This is what she claimed about the Islamic bible,
“My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot in London, are Saudi and they gave me the Quran and I brought it to New York because I was learning. It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.”
She said the following about the media attacking her for her interest in Islam,
“They crucified me for it in America. They made me seem like Satan. I was a bad person for holding that Quran.”
Early this year she stunned fans when she deleted all of her Instagram history, and replaced them with a simple post for her 5.3 million followers reading “Alaikum salam,” Arabic for “Peace be upon you.”
Perhaps it is any attention at all that Lohan likes. Because she certainly has this victim complex down pat. All the while ignoring why it might be insulting to Americans her conversion considering what radical Islamic terrorists did to 2,000 Americans on 9/11.
Lohan is just another Hollywood joke. While it may be politically correct to wear the hijab to stand with Muslims it is simply insulting. Not to mention an empty gesture.
