(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan is in trouble with foreign authorities after indicating in a tweet that she rescued 40 kids from a sweat shop in India. Actually, she was in the US and nowhere near the Indian factory during the raid, but that's not what upset India officials. "Over 40 children saved so far. Doing this is a life worth living!!!" she gushed.

What Lohan actually did was visit a rehab center with a BBC TV crew where the rescued sweat shop kids are living. What she failed to do was obtain a work visa for the trip. Now Indian authorities are considering barring her from the country, reports ABC News.
