Lindsay Lohan on Friday met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Syrian refugee and blogger Bana Alabed in Istanbul. The meeting appeared to be aimed at drawing attention to the plight of Syrian refugees. Bana, who shot to stardom while tweeting about her and her mother’s day-to-day troubles in besieged Aleppo, posted a photo of the group’s meeting on Twitter, writing that she was meeting with Lohan and Erdogan “to support the people of Syria.” In a separate video of Lohan, she wrote, “Look who I am with. I have a new friend Lindsay Lohan.” Lohan offers a message in the video: “We want to send to all of the people in Syria and Aleppo suffering, and to all the refugees, we are here supporting you and you can hang on and be strong. Just like Bana has,” she said. The ‘Mean Girls’ star Lohan is rumored to have converted to Islam recently, and she has appeared on Turkish television praising Erdogan’s rule. The implausible meeting between the child refugee, strongman Turkish leader and former Hollywood wild child came as U.S. President Trump signed an executive order banning Syrian refugees from the U.S., along with refugees from six other countries.
