WASHINGTON — After receiving backlash for saying women’s #MeToo stories make them ‘look weak’, actress Lindsay Lohan is now apologising for her comments.

The 32-year-old actress caused uproar when she claimed that women speaking out to share their #MeToo experience “look weak”. She also claimed that the movement had been hijacked by “attention seekers”.

The actress,in a statement to People magazine, said she would like to “unreservedly apologise for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview with The Times.”

Lindsay further added that her comments “solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it. However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent. I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused.”
