Lindsay Lohan’s parents are suing a senator for remarks he made about her while he was lashing out at a CEO. Michael and Dina Lohan are pissed about a dig that Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana made about Lindsay’s past drug and alcohol issues and they are prepared to take legal action.
According to TMZ, it was during a congressional hearing on Wednesday, when the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee was grilling former Equifax CEO Richard Smith about the credit report firms recent massive hacking scandal that Kennedy made a comment about Lohan’s past struggles. Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska asked Smith “why in the world should you get a no-bid contract right now?” However before Smith could answer Kennedy added, “you realize to many Americans right now, that looks like we’re giving Lindsay Lohan the keys to the mini-bar.”
That comment is not making momma and papa Lohan happy at all. They are stating that the remarks are not only inappropriate but also slanderous. Michael Lohan released a statement regarding the incident.
“Dina and I are seeking legal counsel for Lindsay regarding the slanderous comments and unprofessional behavior of Senator John Kennedy. His comment and analogy was inappropriate, slanderous and unwarranted. How dare he associate Lindsay with this case? Tell me, does he have a family member or friend with a former addiction problem? Wow and he’s a senator?” the protective father told Gossip Cop.
The big question is whether or not Michael and Dina Lohan can actually pursue the lawsuit. Since the comment was made about Lindsay Lohan and she is an adult, it is likely that she would have to be the one to file the slander lawsuit. Also, even though the remark was completely inappropriate and demeaning, the fact of the matter is she has had alcohol issues in the past. It should not give anyone the right to use her struggles as a joke but is it really worthy of a lawsuit?
Senator Kennedy has not yet released a statement regarding the Lohan’s looking to sue him. What do you think about the latest drama involving Lindsay Lohan?
