People Think Lindsay Lohan And Her Accent Are Being Paid By Turkey's Government
A phrase Lohan dropped twice while taking her new accent out for a spin — "the world is bigger than five" — has people in Turkey very suspicious.
OK, so by now you've probably seen this video and marveled at how Lindsay Lohan's accent dances all over the map.
Lohan also used the phrase as a hashtag for pictures taken during her visit to Turkey in September to visit Syrian refugees, which is a thing she does now.
And here she is using it again a week ago.
So what does it mean, you ask?
Well, turns out it's a favorite phrase of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his allies, who use it to rail against the Great Powers of the world.
Lohan made her stance clear in an interview last month where she told ATV, a pro–ruling party channel, that the Security Council's structure should definitely be revised.
And in an interview last month, Lohan praised Erdogan and his handling of the coup attempt this summer, saying that the support he got really inspired her to visit.
Lohan's manager did not immediately respond to a question from BuzzFeed News about whether she really is being paid by Turkey for her time and support.
