Celebrity addiction specialist Drew Pinsky – who goes by Dr. Drew — is taking an online beating for suggesting that the best way to deal with Lindsay Lohan’s drug problem is to “pack her car full with illegal substances” and then call the police.
Dr. Drew’s Facebook page was quickly lit up with criticism following the publication by Radar of his comments. Framing Lohan would itself be a crime and, critics of Dr. Drew are pointing out, would put her at risk of being beaten or shot by the cops.
“If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested,” prescribed Dr. Drew. “I would make sure she was not allowed to get out of jail. I would then go to the judge and make sure she was ordered to a minimum of a three year sobriety program.”
Dr. Drew, who hosts a celebrity recovery show and gives professional advice, apparently lives in a world where people found with a “car full with illegal substances” are able to ask the judge to be sent to rehab for three years, instead of prison, and not have their request laughed out of court.
In exclusive statements to Gossip Cop, Lohan reacted: “He’s a quack and a sell-out… Please tell him to stop!”
Lohan went on to claim she’s not out of control. “I’m fine,” said the actress, “I don’t get what’s wrong with people.”
Gossip Cop would like to know, do you think Lohan needs help or that she’s “fine,” as she says?
