Do not mess with Barbara Walters. After Lindsay Lohan cancelled an interview with the journalistic queen, Walters took to the airwaves this morning to say that she was insulted and upset by the troubled starlet's behavior, TMZ reports.

"If they'd said to me 'You know, Barbara, she isn't up to the kinds of questions that you might ask' ... If they had told me that, I wouldn't feel quite as disappointed as I do today," Walters said.

After telling Walters that she didn't feel up to an interview, Lohan instead decided to go on "The Tonight Show" and be interviewed by Jay Leno. That way, she reportedly wouldn't be asked the tough questions.
