Chicago, IL - Lindsay Lohan responded Friday to her recent outing by Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton. Earlier this week, Bratton said "Lindsay Lohan has gone gay."

Spotted by paparazzi at Los Angeles Airport while boarding a flight to Chicago, 22-year-old Lohan and galpal Samantha Ronson were asked how she felt about being outed by Bratton. Ronson kept quiet but Lindsay responded saying, "Police, you shouldn't get involved in everyone else's business when it comes to their personal life. It's inappropriate."

A video of Lohan's comments shot by the paparazzi was posted on

Bratton's remarks about Lindsay were made earlier in the week in discussion of a proposal before the LA City Council to regulate paparazzi. He said "there are currently on the books sufficient laws, rules and regulations" and blamed celebrities for much of the trouble.

"Since Britney started wearing clothes and behaving; Paris is out of town not bothering anybody anymore, thank God, and evidently, Lindsay Lohan has gone gay, we don't seem to have much of an issue," Bratton reportedly told KNBC-TV.

Bratton called a news conference on Thursday to clarify his comments about the paparazzi. When asked about the Lohan comment, he said he was a huge proponent of gay rights and his sister is gay. Bratton and his wife recently donated money to Equality California, a group that aims to block a ballot measure seeking to ban same-sex marriages.

Lohan and Ronson are traveling to Chicago for Lollapalooza, Aug. 1 – 3. Ronson is billed as a DJ at "Late Night at Rock the Vote Lounge" at 10 p.m. Aug. 2. Her older brother Mark Ronson will also spin.
