Lindsay to Liquor Industry: You're Full of Schlitz

5/2/2008 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan is on the attack after the liquor industry splashed a full-page ad in USA TODAY, crapping on Ignition interlock devices which keep drunk drivers off the road.

The ad, published in USA TODAY, claims the devices are good for Lindsay (showing her mug shot), but not for the rest of us.

Lindsay's mega-lawyer, Blair Berk, issued this statement to TMZ:

"USA TODAY is idiotic for running such an irresponsible advertisement, suggesting that drinking and driving is some kind of American 'tradition' we should protect. Not identifying that this ad was paid for by the liquor industry is profoundly reckless.

Drunk, old, white businessmen, drunk cougars out for girls night out, and drunk wedding parties should be kept off the roads of America. Lindsay Lohan fully endorses ignition interlock devices that have been well-proven to save lives."

BTW, we're told Lindsay has already hired lawyers to determine if the ad violates the trademark laws, which prohibit businesses from using someone's pic for commercial gain without their consent.

And the liquor industry hiding behind some bogus company (Interlockfacts.com) because it knows it's wrong. Nice touch.

Really...is she more mad about the point of the ad or that she was the star they chose versus so many other stars they could choose. She is the queen of publicity, you would think she loves that! I am sure Dina likes it!

Oh Boo Hoo, you know what?!? If that skank hadn't made an ass of herself, broke the law, several times etc... she wouldn't have to worry about stuff like this. She had no concern when she was coked up and driving her car into trees, or when she was nearly killing people on the road while dead drunk so excuse me if I really don't care about her feelings.

Sue for what, showing the truth? She's a drunken idiot that's been to rehab several times and is still out every night drinking. She's going to kill someone eventually.

Spell Check.    

As per Lindsay's request, we are demanding that you change the copy in your ad to read:
"Ignition Interlocks. A good idea for the black kid that did it. But a bad idea for us.
