Lindsay Lohan underwent an Instagram cleanup Thursday, deleting all previous posts and refurbishing it with a simple bio: “Alaikum Salam,” an Arabic, Islamic greeting translated as “Peace be unto you,” is now all that takes up her page.

Whether the Parent Trap icon has officially converted to Islam remains unconfirmed. However, the actress has vocalized her identification with the faith in the past. In April, Lohan was seen holding a Quran, and received ample backlash for studying and praising the religion.

At the close of 2016, Lohan also traveled to Syria and Turkey to visit refugees, captured wearing a hijab in several photos out of respect for workers in the camps. In a video interview with CNN, she spoke about her travels and humanitarian efforts. A representative told Daily Mail that the 30-year-old is “in a period of renewal, and is very excited for what the new year holds.”

Her new bio has Twitter talking, with positive responses flooding in. Many Muslims and fans are offering support and welcoming to her to the “family.”

The Mean Girls favorite also wiped months of Twitter posts following her Instagram cleanse, with tweets dating back to 2014. We’re not sure what’s under wraps, but fans are hoping it’s something big.
