She pouted and preened her way through two hours of excruciating television on what was meant to be her big comeback on Sunday night.
But instead of redeeming herself, troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan's performance as Hollywood great Elizabeth Taylor has been met with jibes and laughter by critics after sparking thousands of Twitter jibes.
Model Christine Teigen tweeted that Lindsay was better in her breakout role in The Parent Trap - filmed when she just 11.
The bruentte, who is engaged to singer John Legend, added: 'Poor John. I know I had to watch 30 hours of football but he doesn't deserve this. No one deserves this,;
While writer Liz Meriwether, who is the creator of hit sitcom New Girl, mocked the scene where Lindsay as Elizabeth faints upon hearing the news of Richard Burton's death, tweeting: 'Oh my God. I think that was the funniest thing I've seen in TV for a while and I write comedy for television.'
Elan Galen, producer of ABC's The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor Pad, added: 'Lindsay Lohan breaks new ground and shows her versatility in Liz and Dick by playing a chain-smoking emotional wreck pill-popping alcoholic.'
Writer Ben Widdicombe tweeted: 'Can we have Hilary Duff as Grace Kelly next please? Maybe Snooki as Audrey Hepburn?'
However, one stood by Lindsay - Lady Gaga - who posted the message: 'You did a beautiful job on Liz & Dick, Let no one bring u down, Liz didnt, they always try to knock the greats down a few pegs'.
This was despite the fact that Lady Gaga had not watched the show and is currently in Paraguay on tour.
