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.

WELL CAN'T SAY SHE DIDN'T SEE THIS COMING.
NOT THE KIND OF BOOST FOR HER CAREER-
HER PERSONAL DOLLARS ARE DWENDLING DOWN FOR LAWSUITS. SO FAR SHE MUST HAVE PAID TO KEEP QUITE THE KIDS IN THE CAR ON HER MIDNITE RUN IN PCH 1. $$$$ TO SHUT THEM UP!
CAREER LOST, MOVE ON TO NEW YOUNGER STARS THAT BEHAVE THEMSELVES.

THE WHOLE LOHAN FAMILY SUCKS. THE MOM IS A MIDDLE AGE BITCH TRYING TO HOOK UP WITH ANYONE WHO WILL DO HER. THE DAD IS A DRUG ADDICT AND LINDSAY IS A FATAL CAR CRASH WAITING TO HAPPEN. IF SHE WASN'T CAUGHT DUI, THIS WOULD BE A NON STORY. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT HER YOUNGER SISTER DOES TO MAKE THE FRONT PAGES OF THE TABLOIDS

What an idiot her lawyer is. How come the men pictured drinking are "businessmen" and the women "cougars" out for "girls" night out. What a sexist. "Old white businessmen," "drunk cougars out for girls night out," - way to offend tons of people Atty Berk! You're really gaining support for Lindsay with your wonderful quotes.

"which prohibit businesses from using someone's pic for commercial gain without their consent."

If that's the case, tabloids and the like should be out of business.

As a lawyer, regardless of who she is...unauthorized use of her image is illegal. Don't be stupid and say she deserves it.

I don't care about Lindsay's personal life, that's her business. I like her movies and her hot bod, and that's the only part that I as "the public" should care about. Let the law worry about the rest.

RESPONSIBLE DRIVER    

Miss Blair Berk you forgot one person that you did not include in your statement a reckless driver and one would be your client Brandy Norwood.
