Glee, Katie Couric Hit Sour Note With Lindsay Lohan's Mother
At the close of the special Glee outing (which was watched by some 26 million viewers), guest-starring newswoman Katie Couric informed Cheerios coach Sue Sylvester that she had been named “Loser of The Year,” beating out the likes of Mel Gibson, Tiger Woods and LiLo’s famous-ish mom.
Watch the scene here (at the 45:00 mark), then read on for Lohan’s reaction:
The Lohan family matriarch took issue with the mention, griping to E! Online that the Fox series “has targeted everyone, from gays to lesbians, Asians, [and the] disabled.” Though if one actually stops to review that list, Glee has actually done right by most of the groups.
Nonetheless, DiLo — who vented earlier this season when Glee teach Holly Holiday (played by Gwyneth Paltrow) made light of LiLo’s rehab stints — goes on to say that such snark is “a shame…. [T]he writers need to be nice and more creative, as opposed to being hurtful. They are sending the wrong message to the youth that are watching.”
Lohan even pulled Couric herself into the nontroversy, noting, “She has a short memory [since] the tabloids were trashing her a few years ago — and she’s a mom!”
Whose side are you on in this building “rivalry” – Team Glee, or Team Lohan?
