Lindsay Lohan Was Criticized Over Claims of Rescuing Indian Kids

Lindsay Lohan was accused of an Indian charity after claiming to have helped to rescue 40 child laborers in New Delhi when she was not actually in the country.

The actress, who went to India to make a BBC documentary about child trafficking, appeared to claim she had rescued the children in just one day. The charity, which organized the raid, insisted that Lohan and the BBC were not present.

Ruchira Gupta, who is anti-trafficking campaigner, thought that celebrities are trivializing child-trafficking if they do it to get publicity. But a BBC spokesman cleared the issue that Lindsay only completed filming in India for a BBC Three project on child trafficking and only referred the raid connected to child trafficking – the subject of the program.
