Fun fact: No one had a great childhood. Ever. If you did, chances are you didn’t end up with the life skills necessary to prepare yourself for the real world and now you’re stuck in a state of arrested development. Anyway, Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter to tell everyone that she was bullied as a kid, so we should all overlook her lack of professionalism and general disdain for others. Via Us Weekly …
“I was actually bullied at my public school when I would leave to film,” Lohan tweeted (via Huffington Post), but appears to have since deleted from her account. “Whenever I came back … girls and boys would call me names.”
“They would also mock me because of my home situation,” the Mean Girls actress added. “When people found out that my father was in jail … they would yell things, try to trip me and more … I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while.”
“So I can relate to the girls that you (Katie Couric) spoke with on your show today,” Lohan explained. “I appreciate you reaching out to them. XO.”
Look, we’re sorry that your childhood sucked, but for heaven’s sake, you’re an adult now. That was years ago. You can’t keep making excuses for yourself, especially when you’re trying to blame your bullying behavior — snatching phones, bossing people around, attacking other messy starlets on Twitter — on the fact that you were bullied. Everyone was bullied in school, and no one had a great childhood; but you can’t keep blaming others for your own actions. It’s irresponsible and unfair.
