Even Lindsay Lohan's charity work is cause for controversy.

A Twitter post the star made during her trip to India to film a BBC documentary has provoked a response from social activist and single-named lawyer Bhuwan, who told Britain's Telegraph newspaper that the star trivialized a serious situation.

"Over *40 children saved* so far…… Within one day's work…… This is what life is about….. Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!" Lindsay previously Tweeted – a message since removed from her page – in reference to raids in New Delhi that saved children being held captive in workshops.

"She was not even in the country when this raid happened," Bhuwan said. "We'll be complaining to the BBC and talking to our lawyers … Would Lohan know where these workshops are?"

However, a BBC rep told the Telegraph that Bhuwan had misconstrued her Tweet.

"Lindsay Lohan has just completed filming in India for a BBC Three project on child trafficking. We would like to stress that she did not say she was present at the raid, this is a misinterpretation," the rep said. "She was merely referring to a raid that happened connected to child trafficking - the subject of the programme."

Lindsay's mom, Dina, confirmed to People on Sunday that the star was back in the U.S., and applauded her daughter's efforts.

"Lindsay is home from India now. I am so proud of her for going," Dina said.

According to the mag, a highlight of LiLo's visit was a trip to the Sanlaap women's and children's shelter, a safehouse for victims of trafficking and other harms. She also reportedly visited hospitals in the poverty-stricken country.
