Paris Hilton has publicly apologised to Lindsay Lohan after making comments about the actresss jewellery theft case. In a preview of her new reality show The World According to Paris, Hilton was mistaken for Lohan when giving earrings to a homeless woman. The socialite quipped: If I were Lindsay, I would be stealing earrings... not giving them away. Lohan is currently involved in an ongoing court case after being accused of stealing a necklace from LA boutique Kamofie & Company. According to TMZ Lohan told friends: [Paris] is mean. You dont have to make fun of serious matters in peoples lives to be funny. Hilton has since released an apology to the website, saying: I apologise to Lindsay for the comment that I made. I was joking around but it was thoughtless and unnecessary. DS
