A note to all users on social media: Think before you tweet. 

Lindsay Lohan has found herself on the receiving end of criticism today after she used the N-word in both a tweet and an Instagram post on Tuesday following the Kanye West concert in Paris. 

The 28-year-old actress, who is currently in the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week, attended the rapper's show last night and uploaded an image of the crowd to the photo-sharing site, including the racial slur in her caption. 

Lohan immediately received backlash for her post and she quickly deleted the corresponding tweet, editing the Instagram caption to read, "#kanye&kimAllday fun show #PFW#goodpeople=goodlife all from good moms!!!!!! @dinalohan @krisjenner."

However, since this is social media, the starlet's tweet still lives on in cyberspace (of course, it was quickly screengrabbed), and users continued to call out LiLo for her inappropriate choice of words. 

"I know that Lindsay wrote the N-word on this post," one of her followers wrote while another added, "She wrote the N-word and then deleted it ASAP."

In response to the criticism, Lohan has issued a statement via her rep to the U.K.'s Daily Mail, saying she was simply quoting one of Kanye's lyrics from his new single "All Day." 

"She is a friend of his, it is his new song, her intention was not to offend anyone and she apologizes!" her rep said. 

The Mean Girls star isn't the first celeb who has issued an apology after using the N-word. Last year, Madonna apologized for using the racial slur alongside an Instagram photo of her son Rocco Ritchie, and celebrity chef Paula Deen is currently attempting to make a comeback following a controversial N-word scandal which shattered her career.
