Lindsay Lohan wades into Brexit vote with bizarre commentary

Lindsay Lohan provided a bizarre running commentary on social media as Britain voted on its membership of the European Union (EU).

Britons went to the polls on Thursday (23Jun16), with voters across the country balloted on whether they wanted the country to "leave" or "remain" within the EU.

As the results were announced on television in the early hours of Friday morning (24Jun16), the 29-year-old actress randomly posted a stream of her thoughts on Twitter.

Outing herself as a strong backer for the U.K. remaining in the EU, she appeared to be following the results closely on the BBC.

"#REMAIN Sorry, but #KETTERING where are you&why is this woman @BBCNews speaking on people rather than TELLING us what happens if UK LEAVES?" she wrote as it was announced the people of Kettering, England had voted to leave.

However when a good result for the remain campaign came in, such as Scotland's Shetland Islands, the star expressed her delight.

"i love the #shetlands @BBCNews thank goodness we have pure hearted people our side," she wrote.

As the results came in from across the country and it became clearer that Britain was likely to vote to leave the EU, dubbed a "Brexit" by the media, she even tweeted to famous British acquaintances such as former The Wanted singer Max George and England rugby star Danny Cipriani asking why the votes were going against remain.

Later, Lindsay seemed to begin to provide more reasoned political commentary, writing about the record falls in the British pound and the refugee crisis and commenting, "One thing for sure the #referendum results are very close, but also showing a difference of opinion across #Britain."

Sadly for the Mean Girls actress, her pleas to vote remain were too late to win the day as it was announced on Friday that the British people had voted to leave the EU by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent.

In the wake of the result, British Prime Minister and leading remain campaigner David Cameron announced his resignation as the country's leader.
