Lindsay Lohan was left disappointed in the new Mean Girls musical movie, after an apparent jibe in the script.
Although she briefly returned to the big screen, it was claimed that the new mom was upset over a ‘fire crotch’ reference, after Brandon Davis used the grim phrase to describe her in 2006.
In the flick, Megan Thee Stallion appeared alongside Angourie Rice – who is portraying Cady in the revival – and declared: ‘We are going back red. Y2K fire crotch is back!’
According to the Messenger, an insider suggested that she was ‘surprised and taken aback’ by the reference.
Her rep has since told Metro.co.uk: ‘Lindsay was very hurt and disappointed by the reference in the film.’

Tina Fey, who co-wrote and starred in both versions, has yet to speak out over the comment, but recently commended Lindsay’s decision to return.
The Parent Trap icon, who currently lives in Dubai, popped up towards the end of the film as host of the mathlete competition, and even made reference to her original stint 20 years ago.
Shedding light on the scene, Tina told Entertainment Tonight: ‘We were hoping that she’d be willing to come and I was just trying to think of like, “Where could she be that could be a surprise?”

‘She couldn’t come the whole time so I thought… it might be nice to, like, reinforce that aspect of her original character.
‘And also it comes at a time in a movie where maybe you think like, “Oh, I guess maybe we’re done with surprises” and then you get a nice little surprise.’
In another conversation with the New York Times, she opened up about scrapping some of the more problematic jokes for the 2024 run.

‘I was writing in the early 2000s very much based on my experience as a teen in the late ’80s. It’s come to no one’s surprise that jokes have changed,’ Tina added.
‘You don’t poke in the way that you used to poke. Even if your intention was always the same, it’s just not how you do it anymore, which is fine.
‘I very much believe that you can find new ways to do jokes with less accidental shrapnel sideways.’
Metro.co.uk has contacted Tina’s reps for a comment.
