Oh, Lindsay …

Less than 24 hours after a judge revoked Lindsay Lohan‘s probation and ordered her to¬† community service at the Los Angeles County morgue, the actress arrived late Thursday and was sent home.

The scapegoat for Lohan’s late arrival?

The media, of course.

“Her lateness was due to a combination of not knowing what entrance to go through and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival,” said Lohan’s publicist Steven Honig in a statement. “Lindsay spoke with the supervisors at the morgue. They showed her how to get in, and everything is all cleared up.”

Wouldn’t the “confusion” caused by the media help point Lohan in the direction of the entrance? Don’t blame the media for your shortcomings.

Nov. 2 can’t get here soon enough.
