Lindsay Lohan: My F-Word Manicure Was Only a Joke

Lindsay Lohan says her explicit fingernail message was not directed at the judge who sentenced her to 90 days in jail.

"Didn't we do our nails as a joke with our friend?" Lohan tweeted to a pal on Wednesday, July 7. "It had nothing to do w/court ... it's an airbrush design from a stencil."

Lohan created a stir when up-close shots of her hand from her sentencing on Tuesday showed "F--- U" written on her left middle finger.

"There's no legal ramifications from this. She has a First Amendment right to wear anything she wants," a prominent criminal defense attorney, Trent Copeland, tells WHO. "But it's just not the brightest thing in the world to go into court like that."
