Lindsay Lohan has many talents, but maybe reading Arabic isn't one of them.
Today, the actress posted a photo on Instagram with a short phrase in Arabic and the words "You're beautiful" on a dainty floral background. It's gotten over 17,000 likes since she uploaded it roughly a half an hour ago, but it turns out the photo actually says, "You're a donkey," in Arabic.

Tons of people have commented on the photo, telling Lohan what she really posted. Just to give you an idea, a lot of people are using the emoji that's laughing so hard it's crying. People have been sharing it on Twitter, too:
Oh nooooo nooo Lindsay Lohan this means "you're stupid" in Arabic pic.twitter.com/sMGxbUzWqK— Rawan (@itsRawanE) April 21, 2015
UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan says she was totessss in on the joke when she posted the mistranslated picture (and also, that she totally loves non-sequitur brand endorsements for Valentino):

She also deleted the original Instagram post, which seems weird, because if she was in on the joke then why would she be ashamed enough to wipe away its existence?
Oh, well. Make of this what you will.
