This is how insanely paranoid about Islam people in the west have become.
This morning I noticed that Lohan was suddenly trending on Facebook. Given her history, my first thought was that she was dead.
But, that wasn't the case. Instead people were horrified and going batshit because they thought she'd converted to Islam.
What actually happened is that she currently lives in Dubai. A fan gave her a headscarf. She thought the headscarf was pretty and decided to wear it. She also made an Instagram post with an Arabic phrase in it out of respect for her new home.
That caused a massive freakout.
Think about that for a minute. It's a fucking scarf. A piece of clothing. In fact, a very practical piece of clothing that can help prevent heatstroke when you are living in a hot climate.
But the simple act of wearing it caused people to go nuts.
Meanwhile in the past she's dressed as a nun, done photoshoots covered in blood and all sorts of shit and nobody has cared at all.
Yet, she puts this one piece of cloth on her head and, essentially, says "hi" to the people of her country of residence and it starts a shit storm.
Think for a minute at just how paranoid that is.
Think long and hard.
