Lindsay Lohan has contacted her legal team after discovering that USA TODAY ran a full page ad about ignition interlock devices that are used to keep impaired drivers off the road. The ad used a mug shot of Lohan stating that it is a good idea for the star but a bad idea for us.
Lindsay’s lawyer Blair Berk issued the following statement:
USA TODAY is idiotic for running such an irresponsible advertisement, suggesting that drinking and driving is some kind of American “tradition” we should protect. Not identifying that this ad was paid for by the liquor industry is profoundly reckless.
Drunk, old, white businessmen, drunk cougars out for girls night out, and drunk wedding parties should be kept off the roads of America. Lindsay Lohan fully endorses ignition interlock devices that have been well-proven to save lives.”
We would assume that someone will be made to pay for the ill advised use of her mug shot and sending a message that smacks of recklessness. Stay tuned for more on this story.
