Lindsay Lohan is in the news again, this time for suing Etrade Financial for airing a “milkaholic” ad.
Lohan, a once promising actress who has nearly ruined her career with drugs and a wild lifestyle, claims that E*trade Financial Corp aired a commercial with a ‘milkaholic” baby girl that had an uncannily modeled after her.
How such thing is worth a tenth of a billion dollar lawsuit is beyond me.
E*Trade’s ad was shown in the February 7 Super Bowl, which according to Nielsen media drew about 106.5 million American viewers, a record for a U.S. television program. It is part of a series of ads featuring babies who play the markets.
In the ad, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend through a video chat for not calling her the night before because he was on E*Trade.
The camera switches to the girl, who asks suspiciously, “And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over?”
It then switches back to the boy, who uneasily replies “Lindsay?” before another baby girl, presumably Lindsay, moves into the frame and asks, “Milk-a-what?”
Lohan was ordered in 2007 to serve one day in jail, undergo an alcohol education program and spend three years on probation after admitting to drunk driving and cocaine possession.
“It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs,” she said in a statement at the time.
I do believe Lindsay needs much counseling. We must not forget how she bared herself in a naked Marilyn Monroe photoshoot only months ago, disappointing us all with her savage behavior.
She also was in a lesbian relationship, did drugs with third world natives and now we see is looking for reasons to sue a quality company, all sins and hopefully she can get her life back on the right track.
