Celebrity Feud: Betty White Vs. Lindsay Lohan


In our WTF? news of the day, a new celebrity feud appears to have broken out this week … between esteemed Golden Girl Betty White and raging trainwreck Lindsay Lohan. This week, Betty spoke to The Daily Mail and offered her honest opinion of the embarrassingly messy behavior by both Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay, apparently, didn’t take too kindly to Betty’s opinion of her and had to speak out publicly about her displeasure. It sounds like it’s Team Betty vs. Team Lindsay … whose team are YOU on?

Getting slammed by the nicest “Golden Girl” has got to feel pretty weird. “Wow,” Lindsay Lohan said exclusively to E! News in response to Betty White telling London’s Daily Mail that she “cannot stand” celebs like Lohan and Charlie Sheen. “I’ve always been a fan of hers,” Lohan continued. “It’s just a bit strange when people feel they must speak publicly about others. Especially a grown woman.” Ooh…burn? No, not really. Lohan genuinely seemed rather perplexed by why White seemingly name-checked her out of nowhere. White’s comments, according to the Mail’s article, appeared to come after she was asked her opinion about “today’s celebrities.” “They party too much, don’t learn their lines, are unprofessional and they grumble about everything,” the Emmy winner said (supposedly with “eyes flashing,” per the report). “I think they are terribly ungrateful. I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business, and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, for example, although there are plenty of others, too. They are the most blessed people in the world and they don’t appreciate it.” Seems kind of harsh for the usually more discreet actress, whose insults tend to come out in the form of jokes told at award show podiums. “She is such a wonderful one,” White said at the SAG Awards, referring to her “Proposal” costar, Sandra Bullock. “Isn’t it heartening to see how far a girl as plain as she is can go?” Sheen, surprisingly, has not tweeted or otherwise issued a reaction to White’s comments. Lohan had nothing to say on Sheen’s behalf, but she is apparently a fan, having tweeted yesterday: “‘Youre with a winner, you wont regret this'”-charlie sheen as bud fox in Wall Street (winner-winning!) made me laugh lol.”

Let’s be honest here, first it should be made very clear that The Daily Mail generally exaggerates in their reporting … and to be honest, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they did not quote Betty properly. But even with that said, nothing that Betty reportedly said is at all derogatory or defamatory. It’s pretty public knowledge and quite arguable that Lindsay, for example, does party too hard, doesn’t learn her lines, is unprofessional and “grumbles” about everything (case in point, this dumb feud). Instead of complaining that Betty White is “speaking publicly” about her, maybe she should take Betty’s comments to heart. When a Golden Girl puts your irresponsible behavior on blast, girl, GET A CLUE! I don’t expect anything else to come from this feud … but I, for one, am squarely on Team Betty. She merely expressed what we all know to be true.

You go, Betty!!

  • A

    Team Betty.

    When I first saw Lindsay’s retort I couldn’t help but think: Lindsay, you’ll be 25 this year…aren’t you supposed to be a grown woman too?

  • Lauri

    Lindsay ain’t got SHIT on Ms. White.

  • Verodemort

    Team Betty x 192379287391!!!

  • morg

    Lindsay just hates anyone named Betty after being forced into betty Ford. TEAM BETTY WHITE ALL DAY LONG!!!!!

  • perdiz

    when someone that has had an amazing career like betty has mentions the things you are doing wrong you should probably take note. that being said in those pictures lindsay is looking really really old… team betty!

  • KiTX

    Is there ANYONE who wouldn’t be Team Betty on not only this feud, but just about anything? I’m basically Team Betty for life.

  • Dee

    This is really getting old! Why can’t people just leave Lindsay alone!!!
    Betty White….you need a new PR person!

    • @Dee — Team Lindsay, eh?

    • Carmen

      maybe Lindsay Lohan should leave troubles alone.

  • ajaymison

    Team BETTY!!! Lindsay Lohan could learn a thing or two from Ms. White.

  • Nicole

    Linds is a disgrace. Team Betty (:

  • Meagan

    Lindsay could stand to take advice from just about anyone right now, so she would do well to listen to a veteran in the industry. No one wants to work with people who act entitled to do whatever they want, not even in the real world and especially not in Hollywood.

    Team Betty, Duh! Blohan is an IDIOT in all aspects of her life. Does this girl have mental retardation? I’m seriously beginning to wonder…

  • Nathan

    The only reason that washed up drunk is pissed is because it’s true. We’ve heard time and time again how Lindsay is unprofessional and takes things for granted. We all know it.
    I would love to see Lindsay clean up and make movies again. Her movies can be funny. But I don’t think she will.

  • TEAM BETTY!!!!!!!!! ALL THE WAY!

  • She used Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen as examples of what is wrong with many of the younger Hollywood performers because they end up putting themselves in the public eye with the very kind of undesirable behavior that she mentions. I do understand that both Lohan and Sheen have very real substance abuse issues, and they may both have mood disorders. The problem isn’t these issues, the problem is the way they don’t manage these issues and believe they should be excused for their negative behavior.

  • rOXy

    As if there is any contest. Lindsay should be honored her name even graced Betty White’s lips. I hope Betty used Listerine afterwards.

  • winner

    Team Betty!! Lindsay is jealous that Betty is older and looks a younger than her!

    • Briar-Rose

      HAHAHAHA that is so true!! TEAM BETTYx10000000000000000000000000000000

  • Daniel

    I used to like Lindsay, but her days in Hollywood are over, she is just a has been, her movies were cute, but not that good…

  • Ben

    Team Betty!!!! Also, that is a tuuuuurrible photo of Lindsey.

  • James

    Lindsay Lohan’s an actress?! Had to look her up on IMDB to be sure…

    Instantly forgettable.

  • Magan

    Team Betty all the way!! Lindsay feels the need to comment on every little thing that’s said about her, when she didn’t really need to say anything at all. All Betty was really saying was look, you had a chance and you blew it because you’re irresponsible and don’t give a damn. So grow up, Lindsay!

  • Chris

    Team Betty!

  • chadSF

    I’m with Team Betty all the way. If her statement was exaggerated or possibly taken out of context by The Daily Mail. I think that it pretty much rings true for both Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.

  • Todd Beaucoudray

    Of course, I’m on Team Betty. What she said was simply common sense and a notion embraced by most, even if unspoken.

    White is 50 years older and her career is more fruitful than Lohan’s. Lohan should note White’s comment and try to fix herself before she’s dead far too young.

  • Kells

    How could anyone NOT be on Team Betty!? I want her to adopt me!!! Maybe Lindsay should shut the hell up and listen to what someone who has been in the business for as long as Betty has, has to say.

  • ml

    I am with Team Betty all the way!

  • Ultimate Gaga Fan

    Team Betty all the way, 100%!! Man Lohan looks so rough in that photo it’s EMBARRASSING!! Embarrassing girl, crash course on self destruction, get her out of here!
