Talk about a Freaky Friday.

Of all the people weighing in on Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union, one person most wouldn’t expect to hear from is Lindsay Lohan.

But the 29-year-old London-based actress got in on the action early Friday morning, emerging as a passionate Remain supporter while live-tweeting the BBC’s coverage of the EU referendum results.

Lohan’s tweets, which have since been deleted but were captured by many outlets including Vox.com, the Belfast Telegraph and the Independent, provided passionate political commentary renouncing the exit – nicknamed “Brexit.”

She explained she was supporting the Remain campaign “so that the U.K., standing with the EU, HELP refugee children to have a brighter future.” She said “workplace fatalities in the U.K. have reduced by half since European safety directives were introduced in 1996” in one tweet. And predicted the pound would drop if the Leave campaign had victory, saying it would take the U.K. “about 15 years to get [the pound] back up.”

According to the Associated Press, the pound plunged to a 31-year low against the dollar Friday morning.

As results came in, Lohan showed support with the Shetlands, who voted to Remain, for their “pure hearted people,” but demanded to know “what’s wrong with you Manchester” when they voted against.

“Why is this woman speaking on people rather than TELLING us what happens if U.K. LEAVES?” she wrote in one message, questioning a BBC News anchor.

“One thing for sure the #referendum results are very close, but also showing a difference of opinion across #Britain,” she said when it became clear that a significant majority would not dominate the vote.

Her last tweet on the subject was a simple “#Remain” with a praying-hands emoji. It linked to an Instagram selfie of the star, which has also been deleted.

Lohan has been living in London since 2012, splitting her time between the U.K. city and New York in recent months. Last year, she starred in a West End production of Speed-the-Plow.

“She sounds more humble and much more calm,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “She has said [moving to London] was the best thing that ever happened.”

She appears to have found love, too. The actress has been dating Russian business mogul Egor Tarabasov for about ten months.
