Lohan Refers To Obama As 'First Colored President'

Lindsay Lohan referred to President-elect Barack Obama as the country's "first colored president" in an interview on "Access Hollywood." Describing her experience on Election Day, Lohan said: "It was really exciting. It's an amazing feeling. It's our first colored president."

A spokeswoman for Lohan didn't immediately return messages left Wednesday.

Interviewer Maria Menounos didn't question the 22-year-old actress on her use of the term. "Access Hollywood" also didn't cite her remark in its online story, but did post an "extended interview" video on its Web site that included the remark.

A spokesman for the syndicated entertainment news program said in a statement Wednesday: "We believe the word in question that Ms. Lohan used was unintelligible."

Lohan blogged about her support of Obama during the presidential campaign.

    Well, what are we supposed to call people of color that won't offend them. I don't agree with African-American, unless they want to call me European-American!

    Okay, this isn't really news. She was probably trying to say that he is a man of color. Which he is. He is not black. He is bi-racial...white/african american. I don't think she meant anything negative by this, being that just like myself, she supported Obama.
