Lindsay Lohan is calling for an insulting joke made at her expense to be edited out of the new Mean Girls movie, an insider has claimed – after the actress was left ‘very hurt’ by the distasteful quip.

Lindsay, 37, expressed her upset after Tina Fey’s musical remake of the 2004 original saw Megan Thee Stallion referencing ‘fire crotch’ – an insult that was hurled at the star during her days of hanging out with Paris Hilton, now 42.

In an initial statement, a representative for Lindsay said that she was ‘disappointed’ – but now an insider close to the star has revealed exclusively to DailyMail.com that she believes the line should be removed from the final cut altogether.

If that wasn’t enough, Lindsay’s father Michael also slammed Tina, 53, over the ‘condescending’ quip, as he slated the new film.

‘The real mean girl here is Tina Fey,’ said the insider. ‘She wrote it. She also knows that Lindsay is hurt by it.

‘The studio is also aware of how Lindsay feels about it. The right thing for them to do would be for them to edit this out of the film. It is completely unnecessary and very disrespectful.’

Lindsay’s father Michael confirmed that he had watched the scene in which the joke was made.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, he said: ‘While I’d love to make a few comments about Megan The Stallion and even Tina allowing that condescending piece to be in the movie, I’ll take the high road and reserve them.’

He continued: ‘I don’t care how many times they remake Mean Girls, and no matter in how many ways, it will never be like the original with Lindsay.

‘The original and Lindsay are iconic. While I am happy that Lindsay and Tina got together, I’m at a loss as to why she didn’t do a sequel with the original cast first.

‘That would have been a huge success and outdone any version since the original as so many others agree.

‘I’d bet that if you did a survey on what people think would’ve been better with the original cast or these musical versions.

‘A sequel of the original would win with the original cast and would be better and more successful.’

Michael added: ‘Nobody can replace Lindsay in her roles. Not because I’m her dad, but because of her talent.’

In the new movie, rapper Megan Thee Stallion, 28, pops up to praise the new popular girl, Cady, played by Angourie Rice, 20 years after Lindsay’s portrayal in the original.

Speaking in a TikTok-like clip, Megan announces: ‘Y2K Fire crotch is back.’

Fans were quick to spot the reference to oil heir Brandon Davis’ explicit 2006 tirade about Lindsay, in which he and Paris mocked the actress.

While Lindsay had her own cameo, she was unaware the joke was featured until she watched the new movie for the first time at the New York premiere.

In the new film, Tina returns to her role as Ms. Norbury. Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert, who played ‘Plastics’ Regina George, Karen Smith and Gretchen Weiners, respectively, in the original film do not star.

Lindsay’s comments came hours after Tina praised the actress during an interview with CBS on Monday.

‘The original movie is really Lindsay’s movie, you know? She’s just luminous through it,’ she said.

‘I thought if she was gonna do anything, I thought it might be nice to have her come kind of late in the movie when you’re like, “Oh my gosh, I didn’t think,” you’ve so much forgotten that you’re looking for cameos.’

She has yet to publicly respond to the news of Lindsay being ‘hurt’ by the joke.

The 2024 musical comedy sees Renee Rapp reprise her role as infamous queen bee Regina George having played her in the Broadway musical.

Renee, Avantika Vandanapu and Bebe Wood make up the ‘Plastics’ — a trio of teen girls who rule over North Shore High School and decide to take new girl Cady under their very exclusive wing.
