Oh Lindsay Lohan … you were doing so well! You were being professional and mature, and you weren’t publicly making an ass of yourself. And now you’re suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto V because you think they based a character off of you. I guess what I’m trying to say is, we liked it better when you were doing the exact opposite of what you are currently doing. TMZ reports …
Sources tell us, Lohan’s lawyers are currently crafting a lawsuit — demanding Rockstar Games pay some serious money for using Lindsay’s image in the game. So the question … did GTAV really use Lindsay. Here’s the evidence:
- The video game cover shows a woman holding a cellphone who looks Lindsay-ish. There’s been debate over whether it looks more like Kate Upton or Shelby Welinder.
- Part of the game features a mission where a Lindsay Lohan look-alike asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi.
- Another part of the game shows another Lindsay-like character at a hotel resembling the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood — a place Lindsay not only frequents but once lived at — and the mission is to photograph her having sex on camera.
As Seanbaby pointed out on Cracked, Grand Theft Auto V has all the comic subtlety of a Wayans Brother fart, so I’ll be the first to admit that in all likelihood, they probably had Lindsay and a few other starlets in mind when they wrote that character. That being said, why would you draw attention to that fact? Why would you look at a mess of a character and think “That’s me! LAWYER POWERS ACTIVATE!” I guess what I’m trying to say is, just stop. Please don’t do what you’re doing anymore.
