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.

So what's next? A device in our car to determine who's on what medications to see if they can drive or not? Our society is getting too bogged down with rules and regulations and restrictions. We're suppose to be living in a free society, and as such, things will sometimes happen. We cannot and should not prevent each and every bad thing from happening. We'd all be a bunch of robots at that point. Yes, have some rules, but don't choke us with them.

Drunk old WHITE businessmen???? WTF?!!? I guess that would be becuase only the working white people would have enough money to go out and drink instead of doing it at home???? I've seen plenty of black people out drinking in bars and driving. Just one more reason I have to NOT watch her and career go down the drain!

I love it!!! But if Lohan manages to wrangle some money out of this (you know her broke addicted ass will try) it won't be as funny. I wish she'd get out of town and learn a new trade or something. The girl is disgusting and never shows any signs of at least "trying" to clean herself up. I just can't stand her or her STILL entitled attitude! Skank!

That's the best thing I've seen all day! (it's been a slow day). I LOVE it when celebs are shown for who they truly are! When will the world wake up to the fact that celebs are over-rated, under-educated and over-paid?
