Lindsay Lohan Suing E-Trade for "Milkaholic" Parody

You all remember the E-trade commercial that was shown during this year's Super Bowl, with the baby boy and his girlfriend? In the ad, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend for not calling her the night before.

"And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?" the baby girl asks before another baby girl pops into the screen saying, "Milk-a-whaaat?" The video of the ad is below, and Lindsay Lohan is not happy at all. (To see the ad, click here.)

Read more after the jump.

According to Us Magazine, Lindsay filed a lawsuit Monday against E-Trade for $100 million. The lawsuit claims the ad violated the star's rights under New York state civil-rights law.

"Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, said in a statement to the New York Post. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan."

The spokesperson for Grey Group, which produced the "milkaholic" commercial, said that they "just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team." (LIES)

Lindsay's lawsuit wants to force the ad off the air. I completely understand. I mean, honestly, who is the first person you thought of when you heard "Milkaholic Lindsay?" "Alcoholic and Cokaholic" Lindsay Lohan. I mean, it gave me a good little chuckle, but at the end of the day, that's her name being put out badly there in a commercial. I understand it's a parody, but I think instead of trying to downplay and make fun of her situation, she needs to be left alone.

Man, you guys remember when Lindsay was younger in The Parent Trap? Kinda miss them days a little for her.
