Lindsay Lohan re-opened her Instagram this week. It’s undergone a complete refurbishment, going with the whole “Lindsay Lohan, Global Peacekeeper” persona she’s recently come up with in lieu of an acting career. It’s all demure dresses and posing with political figures and refugees now. You can forget pics of her laying about on yachts, missing fingers and smoking in bikinis! (But, she’s only posted twice so far, so don’t despair.)
ABC News reports that the generic brand Saint Angie (she wishes) met with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan
to offer an outcall massage on Friday. She also met Bana Alabed, the 7-year-old Syrian girl whose tweets about living in the devastated city of Aleppo have gained her worldwide attention. In a Periscope video posted on Bana’s Twitter, Lindsay embraces her and had a message for the camera.

In the 30-second video, Lohan, 30, says, “We want to send to all of the people in Syria and Aleppo suffering and all of the refugees that we are here supporting you and you can hang on, be strong, just like Bana has, and we’re sending you lots of love and light and blessings.”
Alabed then says to Lohan, “I love you,” to which the actress responds, “I love you too.”
USWeekly notes that Lindsay posted a pic of herself (seen above) with President Erdogan, his wife Emine, and Bana with a heartfelt caption. (Emine’s expression makes me think that the first and only speaker of LiLohan asked to try on her headscarf for a quick selfie to be posted later.)
“What a dream it is for Mr. President Erdogan and The First Lady to invite me to their home,” the 30-year-old actress captioned the photo. “Their efforts in helping Syrian Refugees is truly inspiring. #peace starts now @a_boynukalin @hilalkaplanogut @rt_erdogan please for peace @therealdonaldtrump Alaikum Salam #cleanslate2017 #theworldisbiggerthan5.”
The #cleanslate2017 bit might be Lindsay referring to herself.
She hashtagged #theyearoflindsaylohan. That was actually 2004. It’s going to be the #theyearofdinalohan when Mama stows away on an international flight and surprises Linds with a demand for “some of that Turkey money you’re getting” so she can save Chateau Stagemom.
This would all be super-heartwarming if we didn’t know Lindsay and her antics. It was only recently that she was doxxing a Russian “hooker” for allegedly sleeping with her former fiance and putting on dramatic balcony shows for her neighbors complete with attempted murder accusations. Maybe people can change and this is a new day and a new Linds? I hear you chortling. Stop that.
