Lindsay Lohan uses racial slur on Instagram, immediately deletes it

At least she immediately realized it was a mistake?

Lindsay Lohan attended a Kanye West concert in Paris over the weekend. Like you or I would have, Lohan turned to Instagram to document the life event. You’ve seen a million of these posts—hastily chosen filter, a blurry artist, several hands in the air, and… hashtags that use the n-word?!

About that last one: Lohan’s since-edited post contained the hashtag (which, to be fair, contains a West lyric from his latest single “All Day“) “#kanye&kimAlldaynigga$.” Shortly after the post went live, Lohan deleted the language.

(Sorry, this embed was not found.)

Lohan’s publicist reportedly issued an apology through the Daily Mail that nails the obvious points: “She is a friend of his, it is his new song, her intention was not to offend anyone and she apologizes!”

It’s pretty simple white people: don’t use the n-word. No matter how many black friends you have. No matter how much you are entertained by the context with which it is used. It’s always a bad look, and it takes half a second to self-censor when you’re rapping along to Drake.
