Lindsay Lohan: I Was Bullied in School for My Fame, “Home Situation”

Lindsay Lohan is getting personal on Twitter.

The 26-year-old actress was so inspired by an anti-bullying episode of Katie Couric's new talk show, Katie, that she came forward with her own story.

"Katie Couric I think what you did today on your show for Whitney Kropp was lovely," she wrote Tuesday. "It had me crying. I'd love to meet her. Stop bullying."

In honor of Bullying Prevention Month (October) Couric interviewed bullied high school sophomore Whitney Kropp, who was voted into her school's homecoming court as a cruel joke.

"I was actually bullied at my public school when I would leave to film," Lohan tweeted (via Huffington Post), but appears to have since deleted from her account. "Whenever I came back . . . girls and boys would call me names."

"They would also mock me because of my home situation," the Mean Girls actress added. "When people found out that my father was in jail . . . they would yell things, try to trip me and more . . . I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while."

"So I can relate to the girls that you spoke with on your show today," Lohan explained. "I appreciate you reaching out to them. XO."
