In a now-deleted video, American star Lindsay Lohan defended American film producer, Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual harassment and rape by several women over the last week.
While her stance has drawn hordes of backlash, one response particularly stood out.
English YouTube personality Paul Joseph Watson took his Islamophobia the extra mile, blaming Islam for Lohan's views on the treatment of women.
Harvey Weinstein has gone under fire after multiple female Hollywood stars, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, accused him of sexually harassing them.
"The encounters they recalled followed a similar narrative: First, they said, Mr. Weinstein lured them to a private place to discuss films, scripts or even Oscar campaigns.
Then, the women contend, he variously tried to initiate massages, touched them inappropriately, took off his clothes or offered them explicit work-for-sex deals," according to the New York Times.
While several women came forward with their disturbing experiences with the producer, Lohan defended Weinstein in an Instagram video that has since been deleted.
"I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now," Lohan told her followers from a hotel in Dubai, according to The Independent. "I don't think it's right what's going on."
She explained that the producer, with whom she has worked on several movies, has never harmed her.
"I think everyone needs to stop, I think it's wrong," she added.
Lohan's statements drew heavy criticism, as they seemed to undermine the women's testimonies instead of lauding them for speaking out.
Rather than condemning Lohan's opinion through rational debate, Paul Joseph Watson - a YouTube personality, radio host, and writer - took the opportunity to bash Islam.
"Lindsay Lohan is a Muslim convert. Do her views on the treatment of women really surprise anyone?" Watson tweeted on Wednesday.
Well, first things first, Lindsay is most likely NOT a Muslim
Despite many rumors surrounding her faith, she has not officially announced her conversion to Islam.
Ever since 2015, when the Mean Girls star was spotted carrying a Qur'an, international media and fans have been speculating about her relationship with the faith.
This January, Lohan wiped her Instagram and Twitter accounts clean, adding the Islamic greeting "Alaikum salam" (Peace be unto you) to her bio on Instagram.
Although Lohan said she has not converted to Islam, she told a Kuwaiti interviewer in February that she found "solace" in the Muslim holy book.
Lohan added that she has read the Qur'an, prayed in an Islamic fashion, and tried fasting during Ramadan for three days.
