Kropp was the victim of a prank by fellow students where she was mockingly nominated for her school's homecoming court. Her story ultimately prompted messages of support from people around the world on Twitter.

Lohan was among those who offered her own experiences of being bullied as a response to the Katie segment on Kropp.

She tweeted: "KatieCouric I think what you did today on your show for #WhitneyKropp was lovely. It had me crying. I'd love to meet her. #stopbullying.

"I was actually bullied @ my public school when i would leave to film. Whenever I came back… girls & boys would call me names. They would also mock me because of my home situation, when people found out that my father was in jail."

Lohan revealed that bullying grew so bad that she eventually was taken out of public school.

"[These kids] would yell things, try to trip me & more… I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while," she commented.

"So I can relate to the girls that you spoke with on your show today."

Lohan began her career as a Ford Model at just 3 years old.
