David Letterman is in hot water over a resurfaced interview that shows him mocking Lindsay Lohan for going to rehab and yeah, yikes.

The interview aired during a 2013 episode of The Late Show ahead of Lohans court-ruled 90-day stay in a rehab facility.

Although she was on the show to promote her new movie Scary Movie 5, Letterman quickly steered the conversation to the topic of her addiction issues.

Arent you supposed to be in rehab now? he asked, to which Lohan responded:Do you not watch anything that goes on? What are you a tabloid now?

Despite her evident irritation, Letterman continued on to ask Lohan questions like how long will you be in rehab?, how many times have you been in rehab? and how will this time be different?

On top of that, he probed her by saying what are they rehabbing first of all? What is on their list? What are they going to work on when you walk through the door?

As Lohan attempted to dodge the subject, she pointed out that none of the questions were cleared with her prior to the interview.

I think, to be honest, Im the happiest when Im working and the healthiest and I think this is an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life and I dont think its a bad thing. I think its a blessing, she said.

In an attempt to change the subject, Lohan said that they had already discussed her stints in rehab in the past.

Really? When did we? Now Im the one having blackouts. I ought to be in rehab, for the love of God, Letterman replied.

Were here for a movie lets stay on the positive, said Lohan in response.

From there, Letterman finally tired to switch topics to a pre-planned segment, but Logan took his notes from him to check whether the rehab questions were on there.

Once Letterman got them back and tried to start the segment again, Lohan stood up for herself.

You cant make a joke of it, thats so mean, she said, no, youre not doing that. Were not doing that. No, its my show now.

Eventually, Logan began to tear up as Letterman failed to let the topic of rehab go.

Unsurprisingly, the backlash against Letterman has been swift since the interview began to spread on social media.

Its pretty harrowing to revisit the misogyny levied at so many of modern pop cultures female icons. This is what a lot of us grew up watching, with the implicit understanding this was just how successful women were treated, one Twitter user wrote.

David Letterman was so DISGUSTING to Lindsay Lohan here! And everyone laughing at her for going to rehab. Nuts to see an adult make fun of a drug addict trying to get help. So happy Culture Loves #AA now & rehab. Everythings changed. It was so bad then, said another.

A third person wrote: This is vile on so many levels. The misogyny. The blindsiding. The stigma of addiction & rehab. The hypocrisy of wanting people to recover, but then judging how they choose to do so. I hope Lindsay Lohan knows how loved she is. The world has treated her and many others so unfairly.
