Lindsey Lohan May Be Forced To Stay Out Of India
March 18, 2010
Lohan had traveled to New Delhi for a BBC documentary about child and women trafficking.
Originally, she had caused controversy after posting a status report on Twitter that claimed she had saved dozens of children her first day there.
“Over 40 children saved so far … Within one day’s work … This is what life is about … Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!”
But activists who had lead the raid in which 40 children were rescued from a sweat shop where they were working 17 hour days after being sold by parents, said that she had taken no part.
As a matter of fact, she had not arrived until the day after the raid had occurred.
They accuse her of belittling the accomplishment, and of minimizing the problem of child abuse and trafficking.
In addition to this, she caught the attention of the Indian government.
According to officials, she was on a tourist’s visa, but was filming a documentary with the BBC, which means she broke laws and didn’t register under the correct channels for the project and visit.
She is now being threatened by a blacklisting, which will leave her unable to travel again to the country.
