Lindsay and Dinah Lohan filed a lawsuit against Fox News. They are very upset with Fox News for defaming their character. Sean Hannity, the host of its show Hannity, and one of Hannity’s guests stated that “Lindsay Lohan’s mom is doing cocaine with her.” It’s no secret that Lindsay and Dina have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs however that does not mean they are doing drugs together. The show even implied that Lindsay would soon meet the same fate as Anna Nicole Smith, Heath Ledger, and others.
In a letter dated Feb. 18, 2014, addressed to Roger Ailes, the chairman and CEO of Fox News Channel, attorney Mark Jay Heller demanded an apology and retraction and that video of the comment be removed from the Fox News website.
Fox admitted on-air that it didn’t verify the truth of the statements made.
The Lohans filed the lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court on Tuesday. They’re seeking to “recover damages for slander, false and irresponsible defamatory statements made against them during a national broadcast program on FOX News. They are also seeking damages from Fox news for the intentional infliction of emotional distress as well.”
