What did you do on Charles Manson's birthday yesterday? Lindsay Lohan shared a photo of herself dressed up as Sharon Tate. It's such a shame when a perfectly cute fashion pic on Instagram gets dragged into the legacy of a tragic murder.
The selfie depicts Lohan in matching floral shorts and a long-sleeved crop top, along with thigh-high boots. She wrote in the caption "I LOVE SHARON TATE" along with some sixties-inspired hashtags and emojis.
Tate, an actress and model, was murdered by members of Charles Manson's cult in 1969 when she was 26 years old and pregnant. Which is not something you want to think about when you're scrolling through Instagram. Yet here we are.
It's unclear if Lohan knew it was Manson's birthday or not. This could be another huge Sharon Tate outfit misunderstanding, like when Megan Draper on Mad Men wore a Sharon Tate-inspired shirt and everyone incorrectly theorized that her character would be murdered. That's probably the only other example in this category.
