Lindsay Lohan, 30 year old former child star, went on a beach vacation in Phuket, Thailand. She hit the beaches in a ridiculous outfit that is indicative of her new found interest in Islam… she was wearing a ‘burkini’ swimsuit. She was also wearing her similar swimsuit in Dubai, based on the pictures that she posted on her Instagram account. She has been using her newfound press to be an advocate and do work on behalf of Syrian refugees, which is something she definitely seems qualified for.
She reported that she had been studying the Koran for some time now, but that she was not fully converted to Islam. If that is the case, what is going on with these ridiculous bathing suits?
“It’s a process to convert to anything,” she told the outlet. “I respect all religions… it’s a beautiful religion and I am a very spiritual person… it’s something I’ve been studying. You can’t just convert overnight to a religion.”
That month, Lohan told the New York Post that she was racially profiled for the first time in her life at London’s Heathrow Airport, where she was traveling while wearing an Islamic headscarf. The actress said she wears the headscarf out of “respect” for certain countries to which she travels.
In recent months, Lohan has been busy with her advocacy work on behalf of Syrian refugees. The actress met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan inside the country’s presidential palace in January, and has previously visited with refugees in hospitals and homes in Istanbul.
