Lindsay Lohan wears profane manicure in court

Posted: 11:15 AM ET

If you somehow aren’t aware of what message a middle finger is meant to convey, Lindsay Lohan will spell it out for you. Literally.

Although Lohan told Judge Marsha Revel that she did respect the court during her hearing on Tuesday, celebrity blog WWTDD caught the 24-year-old actress wearing a profane manicure, with “[expletive] u” was written on top of the nail polish on her middle finger. (Although it's quite a fashion statement, we removed the offensive language in the photo above.)

Perhaps she forgot that the phrase was visible – the 90-day jail sentence that was handed down yesterday clearly threw Lohan for a loop – because she didn’t seem intent on hiding it.

Was it a not-entirely-subtle message to the judge or just a careless beauty faux pas? We'll likely never know, but we're willing to bet that by the time she begins serving her jail sentence, Lohan will have located a bottle of nail polish remover.

A good 50% of LKL show last night was devoted to the non-issue of this young woman. Her father hurriedly rushing in as if to discuss an urgent incident. The DNC Chairman was on for a few minutes concerning comments by Steele about the Afghan war. The need to be absorbed by inane celebrity culture as opposed to informing the masses of the immediate issues and circumstances of our war continues.

Giving guests 60 seconds each to make their point while 3 other guests attempt to speak above them – is not informing. The quick sound bite routine that media thrives on, where an hour can be spent watching a show yet leaving viewers with little substance.

Understandable popular culture, the need for individuals to promote themselves, their books, movies, shows etc are accommodated by the media. But when half an hour of prime time is spent on a vacant subject such as Lohan, while the larger issue of Steele's comments is minimized, may account for some of the gross misinformation in the US about this failing war and the displacement of priorities.

Well said Rose! When I saw on the CNN's website "breaking news" about Lindsay Lohan breaking down after being sentenced to 90 days in jail, I thought to myself, what? This is breaking news?

Our priorities are displaced. We have a raging war in Afghanistan, an unbelievable disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and so many other important issues that require not only our full attention but the media's attention. We instead divert to the happenings and mishappenings of celebrities and the like. It's very disheartening.

She should get the book thrown at her too for disrespecting the court like that, I am sure she told her friends to watch for the finger move and I'm sure they all thought it was real funny until the judge decided not to play around and gave her 90 days in jail. What will she do without her drugsd and alcohol for that many days. Oh wait, she might just straighten up. That middle finger isn't one bit funny and since when does she do any type of work with children, isn't she doing the deep throat movie, If there are kids in that movie, they better get her for pornagraphy too! This chick is an absolute mess and needs to get her priorities straight.

Thank God this child is going to jail just maybe this will save her young life, I wish this young lady peace peace nothing but peace, if she doesn't get her self together she's going to be dead before she's 26 years old, her mother seems to be ok with lindsey's behavior until she has to put her to rest then we'll see her crying her eye's out, Lindsey go to pepperdine university and get the heck out of the business you're presently in.


joe g.   July 7th, 2010 5:21 pm ET

bravo to the judge that handed down a sentence that was deserved by this spoiled brat. why do people with money think they are above the law.once again kudos to you judge and boo hoo lindsay.


Pilar King   July 7th, 2010 5:36 pm ET

I can't believe you would talk about Lindsay's nail polish, you guys are insane


Diane   July 7th, 2010 7:29 pm ET

A modern-day witch burning. Go ask Dr Peele. My sympathies, Lindsey.


Ephrem Johnson   July 7th, 2010 7:42 pm ET

I said it before and I'll say it again...I wonder if I could tell the judge"Your Honor that is not my pants the police found cocaine in". Not once but twice! She got away with drug charges! She's crying about a 90 day DUI charge that she thumbed her finger at time and time again. If I had told the judge what she did he'd still be laughing at me...and probably would have given me more time in jail for toying with his athority as a judge. Please forgive me if I'm not simpathectic to her cause.She needs some time away from the streets. Jail is better than killing herself or someone else.


june   July 7th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

Right On Ephrem, lindsey is in big trouble with herself she's a accident waiting to happen


Meg   July 7th, 2010 11:25 pm ET

This young woman will never improve unless she realizes that she needs to change ..not for her family, not for her friends & not for her employer. Until she stops making excuses, stops blaming everyone for her problems...things will never change. I do not think she will take any responsibility for her actions!!!


Jessie from Auckland, NZ   July 8th, 2010 7:49 am ET

Get real. Need to report the real issues instead of focusing on celebrity lives. Too much of it. Is this attention-seeking I wonder.

Nice colour nail polish btw.


Joe G. (Illinois)   July 8th, 2010 1:46 pm ET

To Lindsay Lohan:
The same thing that I would say to Natalie Portman, Winona Ryder..

Stop making movies (Getting paid to “Act on film.”) Liquidate all your assets earned from “Acting on film” and burn all your cash (Don't even give it to charity.) Try to be a good girl and ask Jesus Christ to help you.


gerald Jolly   July 8th, 2010 5:09 pm ET

Oh! Boy, now she's in real trouble.

Imagine having profanity painted on her fingernails.

Is'nt that offense punishable by the death penalty.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!


Lucy   July 8th, 2010 5:16 pm ET

She's a sad case. I hope she doesn't end up like Gary Coleman, Michael Jackson and other child stars - dead at a young age.

I hope someone with a shred of responsibility is watching her over the next weeks before she reports to jail.

LOHAN ATTORNEY QUITS:
I have an issue with Lohan's attorney quitting. In my state ( Oregon )
there are State Statues requiring an attorney to :

1. Give a client reasonable notice prior to quitting. In other words an
attorney can't just say 'I quit' in the middle of a case and walk out.
2. Give a client 'reasonable time to obtain 'alternate council' before quitting. This is generally 30-60 days.
3. Ensure a clean transition to the oncoming attorney to prevent any
negative affects on the clients case resulting from the current attorney quitting. ( turning over files, updating the new attorney, etc )

I don't care how Lohan has behaved or ignored her attorney's advice.
This may color the case and influence Lohan's ability to get a fair trial
and sentence. Perhaps this could be used as cause for appeal, claiming inadequate council or abandonment ?
Who is supposed to go with her now in two weeks when she surrenders to the jail? How is she supposed to find an attorney in two weeks. How will this be viewed by this or other judges?

This is no different that a Surgeon who doesn't like the decision his
patient has made in regards to his advice and walking out as the patient is wheeled into the operating room. This would be considered patient abandonment.

What this attorney should have done was give Lohan a 30-60 day
written notice that she was resigning, see her through into jail,
assisted her in obtaining an alternative attorney and aided with the
transition. Then the oncoming attorney could have notified the press he/she was taking over the case without explanantion as to why.

I don't care for Lohan's behavior either and think she should have gotten jail long ago. But for her attorney to bail like this is unethical
and should be cause for disbarment. Shame on her attorney.

How is it that really succesful child stars grow up and become self destructive...I guees it must be too much too soon. Theres something to be said for having a "normal" childhood....


wanda   July 9th, 2010 1:33 am ET

Leslie, I definitely agree with you – Society priorities has been off track. Why do the media choose to continually focus on the negative? And in my opinion, why does it matter about Lindsay manicure? My nail polish is purple… does anyone care. Lindsay is in the need of attention in this stage of her life. If this is what she chooses to do, let it be.
Is there anyone concerned about the many starving children and victims who are dying from incurable diseases every day? What can we do to help? Lindsay is old news. What we need to focus on is how “To End Poverty”. There are many celebrities who are dedicating their time and monies on the welfare of others. I like to hear from someone what they think about Celebrities and their contribution to society.


Edmund Friedrich   July 9th, 2010 9:47 am ET

Sorry for Lindsay...zero tolerance...90 days is a joke. She will only serve 25% of that!!! It's not her first time and she does not represent a "picture" for our kids.


HOLLYROCK   July 12th, 2010 4:40 am ET

DEAR LINDSAY, SOMETIMES LIFE'S GREATEST BLESSINGS CAN SEEM LIKE A NIGHTMARE, BUT HANG IN THERE LONG ENOUGH TO DISCOVER THE HIDDEN PURPOSE BEHIND IT ALL- KNOWING THAT IT IS NEVER DESIGNED TO HURT YOU BUT TO HELP YOU – PERHAPS IN WAYS YOU COULD NOT HELP YOURSELF. KEEP LOOKING UP – YOUR HELP IS THERE . LOVE, HOLLYROCK
