Jail-bound LINDSAY LOHAN has dismissed speculation she took aim at the U.S. court system with a crude manicured message - insisting the expletive painted on her fingernail was a "joke".
The actress was sentenced to 90 days behind bars on Tuesday (06Jul10) a fter failing to attend mandatory alcohol education classes.
Snaps from the Los Angeles courthouse showed Lohan sporting a multi-col oured manicure with 'f**k u' painted on the nail of her middle finger.
But the star insists the insult was not aimed at presiding judge Marsha Revel.
On her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Didn't we do our nails as a joke with our friend? It had nothing to do w/(with) court... it's an airbrush design from a stencil." Lohan has been ordered to surrender to court on 20 July (10) to begin t he jail term imposed after she violated her probation following a string of arrests for drink-driving.
