Everybody is talking about Great Britain voting to leave the European Union, but nobody expected American actress-turned-party-girl Lindsay Lohan to be so vocal about the matter.
LiLo provided a bizarre running commentary on social media as Britain voted on its membership of the EU. As the results were announced on television in the early hours of last Friday, the 29-year-old posted a stream of her thoughts on Twitter. Outing herself as a strong backer for the UK remaining in the EU, she appeared to be following the results closely on the BBC. “#Remain Sorry, but #Kettering where are you and why is this woman @BBCNews speaking on people rather than telling us what happens if UK leaves?” she wrote as it was announced the people of Kettering, England had voted to leave. However, when a good result for the Remain campaign came in, – such as Scotland’s Shetland Islands – the star expressed her delight. “I love the #Shetlands @BBCNews thank goodness we have pure hearted people our side,” she wrote.
As the results came in from across the country and it became clearer that Britain was likely to vote to leave the EU – dubbed “Brexit” by the media – she even tweeted to famous British acquaintances such as former The Wanted singer Max George and England rugby star Danny Cipriani asking why the votes were going against Remain. Later, Lindsay seemed to begin to provide more reasoned political commentary, writing about the record falls in the British pound, commenting: “One thing for sure is the #referendum results are very close, but also showing a difference of opinion across #Britain.” Wow. Lindsay for PM?
