Joke cut from Mean Girls remake after leaving original actor Lindsay Lohan 'very hurt'

Joke cut from Mean Girls remake after leaving original actor Lindsay Lohan 'very hurt'

Lindsay Lohan was said to be upset at the quip

A joke from the new Mean Girls movie has been cut after it left OG actor Lindsay Lohan 'upset'.

The film, which was released in January of this year, is a rendition of Tina Fey's popular Broadway show, and follows Cady as she moves from Africa to Illinois and makes friends with a group of 'mean girls', ultimately becoming one herself.

But despite briefly being in the movie herself - making a cameo as the host of the Mathletes - one person who wasn't impressed was Lindsay Lohan, after a gag in the movie left her pretty gutted.

Lohan was upset about a joke in the film, which made a direct reference to a paparazzi video from 2006.

In fact, the line seems to have caused so much of a stir that Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, said he was 'pi**ed' at filmmakers for going ahead with the 'disgusting' joke.

Speaking to TMZ, he was pretty defensive of his daughter.

“I will say this, however,” he said. “NOBODY can replace Lindsay or the original cast in that film.”

The joke came about when rapper Megan Thee Stallion appears in the movie and comments on Cady’s Christmas-themed talent show outfit.

“Y2K fire crotch is back,” she says.

The joke is in reference to a paparazzi video, in which Paris Hilton's pal Brandon Davis referred to Lohan as a 'fire crotch' back in the early noughties.

At the time, Lohan was pretty hurt by the comment so it makes sense that it stung when she realised it would be included in the movie.

Following the premiere, a representative for the actress told The Independent: “Lindsay was very hurt and disappointed by the reference in the film."

Now, an updated digital version of the movie - which has been seen by Variety - appears to have removed the joke, cutting directly to Megan Thee Stallion saying: “We are going back red.”

Lohan's appearance in the film as a moderator of the Mathletes Championship was something that 'meant so much' to Angourie Rice - who plays Cady in the latest rendition.

According to Variety, Lohan was paid $500,000 (£394,000) for half a day's work, before flying from Dubai for the premiere.

The film has been a huge success, taking in $33m (£26m) in the US.

It features heaps of new characters and some familiar faces including Tina Fey, who played the original Ms Norbury and Tim Meadows as Principal Duvall.
