Lindsay Lohan Is Suing The Makers Of Grand Theft Auto

The moon and sun have switched places, day is now night, cats and dogs are living together in harmony.  This is because the world as we know it has now become more meta than we could have ever imagined in our quaint little pre-internet world of obliviousness.

Lindsay Lohan, the actress best known for being an almost tragically self-defeating maw of controversy and alcoholic/addict has now decided to sue the makers of Grand Theft Auto, for creating a shallow caricature of a stereotypical Hollywood starlet that Lohan believes is her.  A likeness that she believes that Rockstar Games, the makers of the incredibly popular series, has used without her permission.

Someone get this girl a dictionary turned to the word "satire!"  Quick!

According to an AP report on Yahoo! Finance, Lohan's lawsuit claims that GTA V character Lacey Jonas is based on her, in likeness and personal details. The suit has been filed today in Manhattan, where Rockstar Games' corporate headquarters are located.

For anyone who has played the game, the character of Lacey Jonas is a stereotypical fame hungry, child star who is both an addict and a narcissist.  A sort of broad archetype of many horrible people that are perceived to exist in Hollywood.  

Here are some videos from GTA V featuring the character, make your own assumptions:

Sidenote:  Lilo, you are still my nonsensical all-time crush, no matter how crazy you may get.  But this one might be a bad idea, just looking out for you.
