Lindsay Lohan Opens Up About Being Bullied At School
Lindsay Lohan has opened up about her childhood hell at the hands of bullies, revealing she suffered emotional and physical abuse from classmates while she was at school.
The Mean Girls star was moved to tears during Tuesday's episode of Katie Couric's new talk show Katie, which featured the story of student Whitney Kropp, who was voted her high school's homecoming queen as a cruel prank.
Lohan was so touched by her story; she reached out to the show's host in a series of posts on Twitter.com, admitting she was also targeted at school, with bullies mocking her show business aspirations and her father while he was in jail.
She writes, "I think what you did today on your show for Whitney Kropp was lovely. It had me crying. I'd love to meet her. Stop bullying... I was actually bullied (at) my public school when I would leave to film. Whenever I came back... girls & boys would call me names...
"They would also mock me because of my home situation, when people found out that my father was in jail... They would yell things, try to trip me & more... I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while...
"So I can relate to the girls that you spoke with on your show today. I appreciate you reaching out to them."
