The actress Lindsay Lohan has filmed herself trying to separate two children from their parents, claiming they were "trafficking children".
The video, broadcast in real-time using the Instagram Live feature, shows Lohan following a homeless family carrying suitcases down the street, offering to put them in a hotel.
“You should not have them [your sons] on the floor, you should be a hard-working woman and you should be doing what you [can] for your children, so they have a better life,” she says in the video.
“If someone is offering them a home and a bed, which is me at the moment, give it to them. They will come back to you."
When the family ignores her, she continues to film and follows them, accusing them of "trafficking children".
"Guys you're going the wrong way, my car's here. Come.
"They're trafficking children"
