Playing Lindsay Lohan Returns to Instagram After Peaceful Meeting With President of Turkey

Lindsay Lohan is making a fresh start.

After deleting all of her tweets and Instagram posts earlier this year, the 30-year-old actress has returned to social media with a pair of snapshots detailing her recent meeting with Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the President of Turkey.

“What a dream it is for Mr. President Erdogan and The First Lady to invite me to their home,” Lohan wrote alongside a photo of the Turkish president and his wife. “Their efforts in helping Syrian Refugees is truly inspiring. #peace starts now. Please for peace.”

The Mean Girls star also tagged U.S. President Donald Trump and added the Arabic greeting, “Alaikum Salam,” which means “Peace be unto you.”

Lohan’s message is a likely nod to Trump’s recent executive order that temporarily bans Muslim refugees from entering the United States.

Also depicted in the photo is 7-year-old Bana Alabed, a Syrian girl from Aleppo who rose to prominence after documenting the tragic siege of her hometown on Twitter.

Alabed tweeted a video of her meeting with Lohan, where the two can be seen embracing in a hug. In the clip, Lohan stated, “We want to send to all of the people in Syria and Aleppo suffering and all the refugees that we are here supporting you. Hang on and be strong just like Bana has. We’re sending you lots of love and light and blessings.”

A few hours later, Lohan posted a second photo to Instagram from the meeting that shared the same sentiment as her first post. “This. Now. This moment. A moment in time. Is to forever exist,” she wrote. “#peace #2017 #theworldisbiggerthan5 hashtag yourself to help the Turkish people and what they do everyday. #theyearoflindsaylohan #sevenwonders @rterdogan #lohanclub is a form of making others happy.”

The newest social media posts come in the wake of Lohan’s controversial comment on Ariana Grande’s Instagram last November where the actress openly criticized the singer’s makeup.

After returning to the spotlight in early January, Lohan’s rep told Us Weekly that the actress is going through “a period of renewal.”
