Lindsay Lohan suing E-Trade for “milkaholic Lindsay” commercial


These are photos of Lindsay Lohan in Paris yesterday, attending the Kenzo fashion show. She’s wearing fur, by the way. And she continues to look like she’s getting the good sh-t in Paris. Anyway, it looks like the good sh-t might have made her totally delusional (or maybe not), because Lindsay has decided to sue E-Trade, according to a report that seems to have started in the New York Post. Apparently, Lindsay got pissed when she saw a new E-Trade commercial (below), one of those that feature talking babies. Anyway, the boy baby is talking to his girlfriend baby, explaining why he didn’t call her. He’s coming up with excuses (he was on E-Trade last night), and then the girlfriend asks him, “And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn’t over?” It’s pretty funny, actually:

Here’s Gawker’s take on it:

Lindsay Lohan has gone off the deep end of paranoid narcissism. A Super Bowl ad featuring talking babies that refers to a “milkaholic” named “Lindsay” is about her, she says, and she’s suing for $100M.

Lindsay filed suit yesterday, the New York Post reports. Her lawyer explains, “Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit. They used the name Lindsay. They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”

“Subliminal message”? Is that a joke? Though it is my job to read and spread gossip, this is the first I’ve heard about the above party baby secretly representing the girl ocasionally known as Blowhan.

Then again, last time I thought Lindsay was punking the press, it turned out she really was starting a leggings brand inspired by Marilyn Monroe that sometimes featues built-in kneepads. Fame does terrible things to young minds.

[From Gawker]

How could a milkaholic baby named Lindsay be an allusion to our own precious Blowhan?!? I thought she didn’t do drugs, right, Lindsay? But seriously, the commercial is so much funnier when you’ve got in your head that the baby is some sort of crackhead avatar. I mean, obviously, it’s a baby, and babies doing crack aren’t funny. Which is funny, because Lindsay is delusional. And it just goes round and round!

Although, I will say this, though – out of all the possible names to use for a “milkaholic” why choose “Lindsay”? Is there something there?

    Even if she was right, wouldn’t that be classified as parody or something?

  2. YT says:

    The lawsuit is a grab for attention and an insult to the baby.

  3. ogechi says:

    I don’t need a “milkaholic” Lindsay to eat my pizza…LOL

  4. Anna says:

    Calling her a “milkaholic” is probably the nicest name she’s been given in a long time. The Blowhan should be grateful there are people still willing to spread the assumption that she still occasionally goes for non-alcoholic beverages. And $100 million? Girlfriend has definitely lost her cracked out mind. She’ll be lucky if they don’t somehow manage to countersue.

  5. Icecat says:

    wouldn’t she have had to trademark her name in order for this to be relevent??

    Brings a whole new level to the crazy!!

    I thought it was funny. I don’t remember seeing it the first time. Thanks for posting it!!

  6. lucy2 says:

    Yet another in a long line of ridiculous things she has said and done! Someone probably jokingly said “you should sue!” and dollar signs filled her empty head.

    Unless they specifically said Lindsay Lohan, I don’t see how she’d prove it wasn’t just a random name. And if people associate -aholic with Lohan…that’s her problem.

  7. bellaluna says:

    Like I’ve said before, every time I think Lindsay can’t sink any lower, she does. And the level of narcissism absolutely floors me. How can someone so cracked out be so full of themselves? And since Linds doesn’t do drugs *tears rolling down face from laughter* why is she so offended? I guess no one else is allowed to be named Lindsay.

  8. ima says:

    While I don’t doubt that she is in dire need of money to finance her “hobbies,” I don’t see how this kind of lawsuit would have a leg to stand on. A) Lindsey is a common enough name (although this does allude to her incredible ideas of self-importance) and B) If you don’t want people to make these sort of connections with you, don’t act like a FOOL in the first place! I don’t mean to rant but I really just wish we could send her five (or fewer) years into the future so the only place we’d be see her in Celebrity Rehab/Surreal Life/UK Big Brother.

  9. Miss says:

    PLEEEEASE let E-Trade release a statement saying that the third baby that comes into frame name is actually “Lindsay”.

    This is rediculous.

  10. Allison says:

    wowwwwwwww Lindsay is a popular name, and i didnt think of her at ALL when i saw that commercial. I don’t believe it was intended that way at all and it is so pathetic and obvious that she is just doing this to get some money since shes broke from her crackhead lifestyle

  11. bros says:

    youre so vain…you probably think this commercial’s about you…

    how’s that working out for you lindsey? suing ETrade and everything. the lawsuit is probably going really well.

  12. gg says:

    This is the first photo of her I’ve seen in ages where she doesn’t have red clay smeared all over her face.

  13. sarah says:

    I love the ETrade baby! I would have never associated that commercial with Lohan. Sure many celebs are referred to as one name but I never considered her to be one of them!

  14. bellaluna says:

    Now, if the baby’s name was “LiLo” or “Hohan” or “Blowhan” maybe I could understand…

  15. Bodhi says:

    I immediately thought of LL the 1st time I saw it! I thought it was then & I still think its funny. I also think its funny as hell that she thinks she is a one-namer! Puh-lease

  16. you know like YESTERDAY, after seeing the ad run a million times i said to my gf, that is really funny because of lindsay lohan! then today i read this. ha.

  17. Huma says:

    You guys.

    Someone please remind me why I’ve spent the last 1.5, almost 2 years now studying to be a lawyer. Please. Because in the face of EXTREMELY frivolous, meritless lawsuits like this, I can’t remember.

    Also, ‘parody’ is the WRONG word for the lawyer to use in this complaints. Parodies of logos/brands/figures are permitted and are perfectly legal. (Satires, however, are not legally protected.) Aside from that, Lindsay is a public figure and so the burden of proof on the plaintiff’s side to show that the other party caused harm in using his/her image/etc is very high.


  18. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Many celebrities are known by one name only”

    yeah, and Lindsay Lohan is NOT one of them.

  19. Neelyo says:

    She might be known by one name, but it ain’t Lindsay.

  20. Icecat says:

    “Jesus Christ On A Cracker”

    HaHa.. I may have to steal that..

  21. ien says:

    yeah she doesn’t have a trademark on the name “Lindsay” so is this really a legitimate lawsuit??? and for 100M!!?

    and yes many celebs are known by one name and Lindsay Lohan is definately not one of them.

    her lawyer said why not use the name Susan. Well Susan could’ve been a “subliminal message” for Susan Sarandon and i bet you she wouldn’t sue for it. 1. becuase Susan is a popular name and 2. becuase she’s not a narcissistic cokewhore.

  22. Annabelle says:

    I’ve seen this a million times and never once thought if Lohan. What, she has dubs on that extremely common name? Tell that to my 4 friends named Lindsay. No case here, just shows she’s desparate for money and filing frivolous lawsuits

  23. Novaraen says:

    guilty conscience much?

  24. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I’ve seen that commercial a dozen times, and it never occurred to mean that they were referencing LiLo. But now that it’s in my brain I think the ad will be even funnier. 😀

    I think people who file ree-donkulous lawsuits that jam up the court system should be fined. How can any self-respecting lawyer even take cases like this? Ugh…

    And, am I the only one who think her fur looks really fake? I don’t wear fur myself, so I’m not an expert, but it looks like the cheap stuff you buy at your local fabric store or something. Cheap as sh$t.

  25. ganjagirl says:

    It sounds like they used the blind item methodology. Lindsay -did- do a “Got Milk?” ad years back. She’s busted and it’s funny as hell.

  26. Seriously says:

    “Chris Brown, a spokesman for Grey Group, which produced the spot, is throwing cold milk on the controversy, saying it “just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team.”‘ -NY Post

    Give me a break.

    B*tch tries to make EVERYTHING about her.

  27. meme says:

    Hohan has officially lost her fucking mind. I NEVER associated her skank crackho ass with this commercial.

  28. Jackson says:

    Cher? Yes. Madonna? Yes. Lindsay? No. Narcissism, thy name is Lindsay Lohan.

    What a desperate fool she is. She better think long and hard about how much $$$ this case is going to cost her in lawyer’s fees because no way, no how, is she ever going to win this suit. Oh well, I guess taking a shot at a free $100m is easier than working for it. Freaking loser. E-trade better not give her one single cent to make this suit go away.

  29. Alarmjaguar says:

    You can always sue, the question is, can you win?

  30. Erin says:

    if she ever sobers up, i hope she has the good sense to be beyond embarrassed about this. yikes.

  31. TaylorB says:

    So does this mean that if anyone named Taylor is mocked I can sue? Well look out CB and Kaiser I suspect all those times you mentioned Taylor Momsen (sp??) looking like a slut and acting like a brat you actually meant me, since that is my name, and I am gonna sue you to kingdom come for 10 BILLION dollars.

    Lord someone please lock LiLo up before she harms herself or someone else. And please pardon the ‘interYelling’ but WHERE ARE HER PARENTS?

  32. bcwm says:

    this is absurd… she must think that everything revolves around her name. my name is lindsay too can i get a piece of the 100 mill. omg i wish.

    her lawyer must be as bleached blond as her and high on coc. jesus least the baby is a milkaholic and not alcoholic like her. etfc should counter-sue for this ridiculousness. they both must have been doped up and outta money when they thought about where they get the money for their next score.

  33. bellaluna says:

    @ TaylorB – Her dad is busy bouncing around between ragmag interviews, bimbos and jail, and her mom is busy partying and trying to turn Ali into the next Lindsay. So sad.

  34. Yeah, Blohan wishes she was relevant enough to be referenced in a multi-million dollar Superbowl ad. Crackhead, please!

    Still, in this economy we all still play the Lotto hoping to hit it big, no?

  35. kelbear says:

    I just can not believe Lindsay is that retarded, She is doing this to add one more minute to her “fame”

  36. ann says:

    As if any company would actually want the public to think that this flea is associated with them.
    Oops, not that Flea, but the bug flea.
    Please no law suits.

  37. Nudgie says:

    This lawsuit is SO ridiculous that Blowhan couldn’t even get Gloria Allred to file it for her!!!

  38. GatsbyGal says:

    She’s gonna get laughed out of court.

  39. MARKYMARK says:

    This chick is broke and needs money fast & any way possible

  40. lucy2 says:

    I wonder if she was just hoping they’d pay her a settlement to shut up and go away. I too hope they counter sue for legal fees, wouldn’t that be good! They’d never get anything out of her, but maybe it would all teach her a lesson or two. Though I doubt it – if multiple trips to rehab, arrests, car accidents, and other general mayhem hasn’t taught her anything, I doubt this would either.

  41. Lizzard says:

    I thought the baby at the end of the commercial that popped up was the Lindsay baby. If that’s the case- they made her sound kind of how I picture Britney Spears to sound ya’ll.

  42. Robert says:

    I imagine if the roles were reversed and they used “milkaholic” with the name David, David Hasselhoff would be suing…

  43. TaylorB says:

    At this point she is just begging to be mocked, among other things… she better wear a helmet to court because the judge may just throw the book right at her head or her lawyers, considering she probably won’t even show up.

  44. Dave says:

    I say punish those who are greedy, stupid, and irresponsible. Lindsey wants to act like a brat, lets treat her like one. No one buy anything, watch anything, or have anything to do with her until she apologizes. This is assuming of course that anyone actually watches any of her crap anyways. As for me, the whole thing really is a moot point b/c I don’t think I’ve ever watched anything with her in it anyways. But just in case you know someone who does, spread the word: Just say No Mo to the Loh Hoe.

  45. Jazz says:

    No one would of made that connection if she had kept quiet. Lindsay is a popular name, it’s not immediately associated with her. She doesn’t have the first name recognition that Cher, Oprah and Madonna have. Blohan you will never be Madonna.

    She must be desperate for money if she wants $100 million. And if “milkoholic” has hit a raw nerve because she, and everyone else, knows she’s an alcoholic and drug addict, then get your ass to rehab!

  46. dee says:

    There isnt anything in that commercial that even hints that its about HoHan. I could understand if the babies were holding whiskey bottles, had white powder around their noses, or had rapidly aging faces but I just dont see it.
    I hope E-trades lawyers counter-sue for their time and court costs. This girl needs to OD already.

  47. Theresa says:

    She is hoping that E-trade will settle out of court. Anything is better than nothing. She obviously has no pride left either, or has simply provided a single directive to her representation: get me some money, no matter how, no matter what I have to do, I need MONEY!

  48. kelbear says:

    Without Lindsay even doing this, How many of you actually thought etrade was referring to her? I know I didn’t, never crossed my mind. What a loser she is

  49. Chris Oakley says:

    Paranoia, thy name is Lindsay Lohan.

  50. Thanks so much…

  51. Even so, low-priced splitting of marriages are not if you need plenty of funds before dissolution of the relationship such as property or home, funds, children, and also pet custody. This can be imperative that you observe seeing that divorce proceedings decrees are very last and also cannot be reopened or adjusted in a soon after phase.

  52. With every little thing that appears to be building throughout this subject matter, many of your perspectives are very refreshing. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It appears to me that your opinions are generally not completely validated and in fact you are generally your self not even totally certain of the point. In any event I did take pleasure in looking at it.

  53. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue along with your website in web explorer, would test this? IE still is the market leader and a good element of folks will omit your magnificent writing because of this problem.
