Raven-Symoné, known for her often controversial (to say the least) opinions on a variety of topics, stepped into the argument on The View today with a defense of Lohan and the pitfalls of celebrity.
Raven-Symone defends Lindsay Lohan
Lawrence made a crack about Lohan during a recent promo appearance for her new flick Joy, comparing the way her body reacts to her work ethic to Lohan after a bender. “I get like, Lindsay Lohan-grade exhaustion, but without any drugs or alcohol,” she joked. But Raven-Symoné failed to see the humor.
“She has had problems in her life from family to work, and again, nobody ever believes me, but people in the industry have problems too,” Raven-Symoné told the panel about Lohan. “Just because you have a lot of money… You know what I’m talking about. People hate when I talk about it but I don’t care, because I have issues too, and just because I’m a celebrity and I’m famous and I have money, it doesn’t mean I don’t have issues.
“I’m still a human first,” she stressed. “And Lindsay has issues that need to be taken care of.”
At the same time, Raven-Symoné understands why Lohan is the butt of so many jokes, and why the feud between Lawrence and Lohan is a hot topic.
“We are public domain, that’s the sad part,” she said. “As a celebrity, you’re public domain. Our lives get talked about even when we don’t want it talked about, or if we do want it talked about. So anyone trying to start a fight with those two, that’s public domain.”
