Lindsay Lohan took to Instagram on Tuesday night to defend producer Harvey Weinstein, who is accused of sexually assaulting and harassing many women over the past few decades.
“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now,” she said in the Instagram story, taken from her home in Dubai. “I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
Lohan later deleted the bizarre messages.
Harvey Weinstein, who was the subject of a second bombshell report on Tuesday, is reportedly on his way to Europe for treatment after being accused of harassing several actresses, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Lindsay Lohan added of Weinstein: “He’s never harmed me or did anything to me – we’ve done several movies together.I think everyone needs to stop – I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” her statement read.
On Sunday, Weinstein was fired from his film studio and reportedly started counseling to help him “turn over a new leaf” regarding the way he treats women. The news came on the same day that the New Yorker posted a follow-up to an exposé from the New York Times in which several women accused Weinstein of harassing them.
