TMZ says that Lindsay was in Moscow, when she just came across a homeless family . . . two adults and two young boys. She got out of her car and confronted the family LIVE on her Instagram.
She claimed they were Syrian refugees, and at first she was being nice and offering to help them. But then she tried to lure the kids back to her hotel to watch movies. (WEIRD)
The family was NOT interested in Lindsay's help. After several minutes, they got up and started walking away.
But Lindsay followed and continued to harass them . . . saying that they were, quote, "ruining Arab culture by doing this."
She accused them of CHILD TRAFFICKING, but didn't explain why. Maybe because the kids wanted to come with her, but the parents wouldn't let them. She kept following them, and at one point she tried to physically GRAB the kids.
So the woman PUNCHED LINDSAY IN THE FACE.
You don't actually see the punch, you just see the camera shake. Then you see Lindsay CRYING and saying, quote, "You guys, I'm so scared." Then it ends. Lindsay and her reps haven't commented on the situation.
Lindsay took down the video, but someone captured and posted parts of it.
