So, Lindsay Lohan’s staff may be almost as dramatic as she is.

Gavin Doyle, Lohan’s assistant, tweeted about her arrest outside a night club in New York City yesterday. He said, “after bailing you out last night I HOPE and PRAY you get the help you so desperately need. We are ALL rooting for you. xxx.” Then, he tweeted, “Life is NOT a movie it’s a reality that needs to be faced.” Later he describes his apartment building being “inundated” with reporters (which is surprising…how?).

As we discussed yesterday, TMZ says the incident in question occurred early yesterday morning while Lohan was extremely drunk. She reportedly wound up punching psychic Tiffany Ava Mitchell in the face after the woman tried to give Lohan a “free reading.” According to a video caught by the New York Post, Lindsay apparently kicked Doyle out of the car she got into after leaving the police station, so these tweets could potentially be the result of some scorn. It does look awfully unkind considering there were about forty people yelling, snapping photos and mobbing the car to get more information:

And if that wasn’t enough, she has situationally screwed him prior to this incident. He was in the passenger’s seat when she crashed back in June, but Lohan told the police that Doyle was driving, not her. Eventually, he revealed the lie and she was charged with three misdemeanors relating to the ordeal as a result.

But while I do not think LiLo deserves a whole lot of sympathy, particularly not from a guy she’s blatantly fucked over a multiple times, I don’t think it’s a good idea to publicly call out somebody who potentially has a serious drug and/or alcohol addiction, as well as other emotional issues. I’m unsure if he’s still working for her, given her history, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he quits and/or has been fired. But nevertheless, I think tweeting about an incident like this is a pretty terrible idea. Reporters will break down your door, somebody who needs help might wind up feeling victimized (though she’s not exactly a victim in the majority of her missteps) and potential bosses will know you may tweet about their personal lives, too.

If you’re going to discuss something serious like this in one of the most public forums on the Internet, at least don’t make it so obvious who you’re talking about. It just kind of screams, “PLEASE RETWEET ME.”
