Scoop: Lindsay Lohan’s ready for social media pranks

Lindsay Lohan is trying to be back in the spotlight, with a new project she’s calling “The Anti-Social Network.”

In the show — reminiscent of Ashton Kutcher’s “Punk’d” and even Allen Funt’s “Candid Camera” — she would hijack contestants social media accounts, and challenge them to do embarrassing things for prizes.

“I love social media. I mean, I am social media. Everybody knows you should never leave your phone lying around, especially near me,” Lohan said in a teaser video released Tuesday.

“Entertainment Tonight” points out that Lohan was once a targeted in a 2003 episode of” Punk’d,” and that she hasn’t been in a mainstream movie since Lifetime’s 2012 Elizabeth Taylor biopic, “Liz & Dick.” She also was in an OWN reality show called “Lindsay” in 2014.

On a more serious note, she met Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss the refugee crisis in Syria in January.

Perhaps the best news for everybody: “The Anti-Socal Network” is still being “shopped for distribution.”


Rapper Wyclef Jean has a few words about racial profiling in connection with an unpleasant encounter with Los Angeles sheriff’s officials on Tuesday.

Early Wednesday, he told “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts that he was afraid for his life after cops misidentified him for a suspect and handcuffed him in West Hollywood.

“I have family on both sides of the lens but I got a chance to see what happens with a citizen versus a police firsthand. And I have to tell you, I was scared for my life to the point where I could have acted different. And if I acted different, something else would have happened to me.”
