Are Advertisers Taking Advantage of Lindsay Lohan's Sentencing?
Just before Lindsay Lohan appeared in court Tuesday, she surprised her Twitter followers with a tweet about a sale on Louis Vuitton bags. For someone facing a potential jail sentence, heralding a sale seemed rather inappropriate. The post, sponsored by online auction site FashionBay, proclaimed, "OMG!? An LV bag for $1 at FashionBay! Maybe I can get lucky and win something cool here!"

While it probably wasn't the best time for Lohan to bust out a sponsored tweet, as she was sentenced to 90 days in jail and a 90-day inpatient rehab stint soon thereafter, the advertiser may have been looking to capitalize on Lohan's emotional sentencing. And it worked -- the post was quickly retweeted by more than 100 people!
