Justin referred to Linday’s alleged tax debt and asked fans to compare his own wealth to hers in the comment, which was swiftly deleted.
He wrote: “[I] don’t think I deserve all of this negative press I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here.
“I’m growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticise me everyday i think im doing pretty damn good.
“And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;)” (sic)
Ouch. Poor Lindsay! Justin has been the victim of some seriously negative publiticty in recent weeks, for turning up late to his O2 concert in London, then having a heated row with a paparazzi in the city.
Realising his remark about the actress was pretty mean, he issued a statement to TMZ, saying: “My post was only up for a few minutes but I realised right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say.
“I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now.”
