Lachrymose Lindsay Lohan Drops a Silent F-Bomb During Courtroom Sentencing
It was a dramatic moment as Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating parole, all stemming from incidents in years past. Tearful, she explained to the judge that what she had done was a serious problem. "I am not taking this as a joke, it's my life and career," she explained. "I don't want to you to think I don't respect you and your terms."
But the courtroom photographer happened to catch a different story.
Written on Lohan's middle finger was "Fuck U."
There's speculation that it was written during the trial, but no confirmed word yet. Gawker noted that she was "writing/doodling/otherwise fiddling with a pen" during the hearing.
Whether Judge Marsha N. Revel saw it or not is another question, but it's highly unlikely. Revel seems like the type who would question it, even the expletive was written before Lohan arrived to court. Either way, the issue of respect would be brought up.
