Lindsay Lohan, That Arabic Phrase Doesn't Mean What You Think It Means


Oh dear. Lindsay Lohan posted that image to Instagram earlier today. Pretty! Except “أنت حمار” doesn’t mean “you’re beautiful,” it means “You’re a donkey,” or, literally, “You’re a jackass.”

LiLo last ran into a little Arabic-language difficulty in January, when she posted a photo mourning the passing of King Abdullah, but using the words “Inshallah,” (God willing) and “Wallahi” (I promise by God), neither of which make any sense whatsoever in context.

Unfortunate, yes, but fucking hilarious nonetheless. The real question here is whether Lindsay will leave it up or quietly take it down and go have a word with whoever’s trolling her. Both? I might opt for both.
