On Friday, Lindsay posted a mirror selfie while wearing some "flower child" clothing. According to Lindsay's caption, the look was in honor of Sharon Tate, the actress who was tragically murdered by the Manson family in 1969. On its own, this pic might not be a problem - but it's raising eyebrows because she just so happened to post it on killer Charles Manson's birthday.
Lots of fans and news outlets have called Lindsay out on the photo, with some believing that she posted the photo in order to stir up controversy.Other people argue that Lindsay's outfit is actually a positive thing: instead of the day being about the person who killed Sharon, the day was used to celebrate her life. To be fair to Lindsay, the post was actually posted the day before Charles' actual birthday, so it may have been a total accident. Lindsay has also professed to being a fan of Sharon's movie Valley Of The Dolls, so it's quite possible this was meant to pay an homage to a beloved classic. If Lindsay did post this pic to stir up controversy, that is extremely disappointing - but if she did it to honor a deceased star, well, it may have been a case of poor judgement.
