Lindsay Lohan is everywhere! (Well, everywhere except jail, but that’s another story …)

Brett Ratner’s apology for a gay slur he says he inadvertently and un-thoughtfully made in passing is eclipsing the fact that he also revealed before sleeping with Lindsay Lohan he made her get an STD test. We’re not knocking his desire to stay informed and healthy but this clearly would be a bigger deal if he wasn’t also trying to made amends for his previous comment, saying: “It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of language and my choice of words.”

Should he also have thought of the power of his language before revealing to Howard Stern: “I’m a hypochondriac. Before I go all the way, I send the girl to the doctor and check them for everything. My doctor has a test to tell if you’re going to catch something in the future even.”

Perhaps based on both these comments, a campaign has been started to remove him from his role of producing the Oscars. Is all publicity truly good publicity?
