Does Lindsay Lohan need money THIS bad??? The once upon a time actress is suing E-trade for using the name “Lindsay” in their Superbowl commercial. For 100 million dollars!
Haven’t seen it yet? Well Lohan is claiming that in the commercial, which features a boy baby apologizing to his girlfriend for not calling her the night before while he’s trading stocks on e-trade. The girl baby gets jealous and brings up “that milkoholic Lindsay.”
Get this! The actress’ lawyer is claiming that her name is just as recognizable as other one-word monikers, including Madonna and Cher, which means that e-trade had no right to use her name without her permission, because clearly they were talking about her.
Absolutely NOT! Lindsay Lohan shouldn’t even be allowed to be featured in the same blog post as Madonna and Cher, and to sue them for 100 million dollars?
Says Lindsay’s lawyer; “Many celebs are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit. They used the name Lindsay. They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
Are they saying she IS a milkaholic??? Does this lawyer know that Lindsay or Lindsey is a fairly common name, unlike Madonna or Cher?
A spokesperson for E-trade calls it a simple coincidence, claiming that they “just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team.”
