It almost goes without saying that the Lohan family takes a fair amount of criticism in the media, most of which the family pubicly ignores.

But when CNN’s Anderson Cooper went on a rant on this morning’s Live with Regis & Kelly, the clan’s matriarch, Dina Lohan felt the need to reply.

During his guest-hosting appearance on the talk show, Anderson launched an anti-Lohan tirade that included the following gem about little sister Ali Lohan:

"Allegedly a 14-year-old girl, looks to be about 60… I say that with concern and love. She allegedly wants to be a singer and or actor-slash-performer of some sort, striptease person, i don’t know."

Well, that didn’t sit well with Dina, who spoke exclusively to OK!. "People are just cruel!" she said. "This is bad karma for him."
