This fire crotch joke upset Lohan greatly. Representative of the 37-year-old actress revealed that Lohan is “very hurt and disappointed” by the insult. It is speculated that the Freaky Friday actress was happy to make a cameo in the film after two decades. But Tina Fey, screenwriter of Mean Girls 2024 had not given her a heads up. This hurt Lohan further as Fey is a longtime friend. Sources also reveal that Lohan was “surprised and taken aback” when the film first had this reference at the New York City premiere of the film.

The joke has a vivid History. Back in 2006, socialite Brandon Davis had been filmed leaving a nightclub with sisters Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton. The viral video showed Davis ranting to a paparazzi and disrespecting Lohan’s front bottom, calling it “stinky”, “orange” and infamously a “fire crotch.” This sparked a feud that lasted many years and only resolved recently. As a new mother, Lohan does not want to relive the controversy and filmmakers have decided to remove the dialogue for the OTT release. Until then, stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
