Lindsay Lohan punched after trying to take kids away from their parents in an Instagram Live video

She appears to tell the children in the family: "I won't leave until I take you".

Lindsay Lohan took to her Instagram Stories on Friday night (local Russian time) to record her interactions with what appears to be a homeless Syrian family.


In the video, she accuses the family of selling their young children, and appears to try to take the children away from their parents.

The videos posted prior to this one show Lohan on the streets of Moscow, so it appears that this video has also been filmed there.

The video begins with Lohan saying: "Hey everyone, I just want to show you a family that I met, a Syrian refugee family that I’m really worried about. They really need help."

She exits her car and begins to follow this family down an otherwise mostly empty street.

"You want to come with me? Come with me, I’ll take care of you guys,” she says to the family, before turning to one of the children: “Do you want to stay in a hotel tonight? Do you want to watch movies? It would be so cool to watch a movie on a TV or a computer."

The parents appear to refuse, and Lohan persists:

"You should not have them [your sons] on the floor, you should be a hard-working woman and you should be doing what you [can] for your children, so they have a better life. If someone is offering them a home and a bed, which is me at the moment, give it to them. They will come back to you."


"I won’t leave until I take you. Now I know who you are. Don’t fuck with me."

The family continues to attempt to evade Lohan, who appears to speak in both English and Arabic to the family, as she continues to pursue them.

"Look what’s happening, they’re trafficking children [...] You’re ruining Arabic culture by doing this. You’re taking these children, they want to go. I’m with you boys, don’t worry, the whole world is seeing this right now."

The video appears to end when the mother of the family attacks Lohan, who then stops following them down the street.

Lohan's video has quickly been circulated online, and the following is a compilation of the Instagram Live Videos captured by a YouTube account:
