Lindsay Lohan learned the hard way that not every filtered motivational quote can be trusted. The Mean Girls actress recently posted a quote in Arabic on Instagram, with the translation, “You’re beautiful,” written underneath. Except, the phrase actually reads, “You are a donkey.” 

Jenan Moussa, a reporter for Al Aan TV, tweeted at Lohan with a screengrab of the photo, encouraging the actress to check before she posts. Lohan deleted the image soon after posting, but the damage was done with mulitple screengrabs captured as a cautionary reminder of the importance of Google Translate.
