After Lindsay is reported to be left hurt by her comment that made fun of the actress' theft case, Paris issues an apology as saying, 'I was joking around but it was thoughtless and unnecessary.'
Paris Hilton is apparently ridden by guilt for poking fun at Lindsay Lohan's jewelry theft case. A day after a clip of her making the verbal jab at the troubled actress surfaced, the hotel heiress/media personality issued a public apology via TMZ.
"I apologize to Lindsay for the comment that I made. I was joking around but it was thoughtless and unnecessary," said the 30-year-old socialite when expressing her regret for her remark. She additionally mentioned, "I am reaching out to Lindsay so I can tell her myself."
On Thursday, May 5, TMZ put out a clip of Paris' new reality show, "The World According to Paris". In it, the "Repo! The Genetic Opera" actress gives a homeless woman her earrings, but the woman mistakes her for Lindsay. In a voiceover afterward, she said, "If I were Lindsay, I would be stealing earrings ... not giving them away."
Hours after the clip was put out, TMZ came out with the story that Lindsay, who was accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, California jewelry store in January, is furious over the remark. She reportedly told friends, "[Paris] is mean. You don't have to make fun of serious matters in people's lives to be funny."
