There were many surprises to be found during the United Kingdom's referendum on whether to leave the European Union, probably better known by the portmanteau "Brexit". The biggest surprise is probably the result -- but a close second would have to be the emergence of Lindsay Lohan as an unlikely voice of expertise when it came to Brexit.

Over the course of 22 tweets, Lohan revealed herself as a passionate advocate of the UK remaining in the EU and quite thoroughly versed in the issues at hand.

The seemingly random nature of Lohan's involvement delighted social media but the truth is that her interest isn't actually that random: The once and future Mean Girl and former pilot of the Love Bug does live in London, making the Brexit vote a little more relevant to her world.
