Apparently, We've All Been Pronouncing Lindsay Lohan's Name Wrong Since 1998

There's nothing worse than learning you've been pronouncing someone's name wrong for an extended about of time. While my name is easy to pronounce (Taylor, like Swift) I still sometimes get called Tyler — I can't imagine how hard other people have it!

As it turns out, actress and recent TikTok star Lindsay Lohan is one of those people we've all been disrespecting, and I can't say sorry enough.

There are many celebrities who have fallen victim to mass mispronunciation.

Once news outlets, fans, and social media start calling a celebrity the wrong name, it's all over from there.

It's a train that can't be turned around.

It's a rocket ship that's blasted off.

It's a tube of toothpaste your child squeezed all over the floor.

Remember when Chrissy Teigen revealed we've been mispronouncing her last name?

It's pronounced TIE-GAN, not TEA-GAN.

"Gave up a long time ago," Chrissy revealed on Twitter back in 2018.

As it turns out, we've also been pretty trapped in the way we've been pronouncing Lindsay Lohan's last name.

The actress, who recently joined TikTok, shocked fans when she introduced herself on the popular app and said her name the way we should have been saying it since 1998.

"Hey everyone, it's Lindsay Lohan, and now I'm on TikTok!" she told the camera.

But, instead of pronouncing it like we all have been for twenty years — "LO-HAN", Lindsay said "LOW-EN."


Needless to say, many so-called "fans" of Lindsay's were shocked, myself included.

"u pronounced ur name wrong," commented one fan.

"Wait. Lindsey “LOWEN”?!?IVE BEEN SAYING IT WRONG MY WHOLE LIFE?!?" said another.

My personal favorite comment? "Why does this feel like an old 2000’s VHS video?"

Well, at least we all know now and I PROMISE TO DO BETTER, MS. LOHAN!
