Lohan upset by Hilton joke

Lohan upset by Hilton joke

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly branded Paris Hilton “mean” for making fun of her.

The troubled actress – who is currently facing a misdemeanour theft charge for allegedly stealing a $2,500 (€1,715) necklace from a Los Angeles jeweller – is upset about a joke the socialite makes in an episode of her new reality series ‘The World According to Paris’.

In the show, a homeless woman mistakes Hilton for Lohan and says she will give a pair of earring the star has just gifted her to her sister, and tell her they are “from Lindsay”.

Hilton corrects the woman, then on a voiceover to the clip jokes: “If I were Lindsay, I'd be stealing the earrings, not giving them away."

According to website TMZ.com, Lohan has reacted badly and has been telling friends: “Paris is mean. You don’t have to make fun of serious matters in people's lives to be funny."

If convicted of stealing the necklace, Lohan is likely to be sent to jail. Last week she was also found in breach of her probation in connection to the case and sentenced to 120 days in prison, which she was bailed from, and 480 hours of community service.

Hilton and Lohan have had a turbulent relationship since 2006, when the latter was accused of getting too close to Paris’ ex-boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos.

Lohan’s trial for theft is planned to start on June 3.
