While it seems that almost every woman in Hollywood is coming out against beleaguered film producer Harvey Weinstein, one actress has actually come to his defense.
Lindsay Lohan took to Instagram on Tuesday from Dubai to defend Weinstein, saying she feels “very bad” for him.

“He’s never harmed me or done anything wrong to me – we’ve done several movies together,” she said in the Instagram video, which has since been taken down. She then goes on to state, “I think everyone needs to stop, I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”
At one point the Mean Girls actress even seems to attack Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, accusing her of abandoning her husband in his time of need. “I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband,” she said.

Chapman, 41, announced on Wednesday that she would be leaving her husband, saying in a statement to People magazine: “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.”
Lindsay’s curious Instagram post comes at a time when more and more female actors and former coworkers are coming forward concerning Weinstein’s behavior. In a statement to the New York Times, both Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow accused the studio executive of sexual misconduct.
“I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did,” Jolie said, while Paltrow described a similar instance after being cast in the lead role for the movie Emma. After landing the role Weinstein brought her up to his hotel suite where he placed his hands on her and suggested she massage him.
“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” she told the Times.
The New Yorker also reported that 16 former and current employees at Weinstein’s companies “witnessed or had knowledge of unwanted sexual advances and touching at events associated with Weinstein’s films and in the workplace”.
Weinstein was fired by The Weinstein Company’s board of directors last week after the New York Times exposé accusing him of decades of sexual misconduct.
