The new Mean Girls movie has removed the offensive joke about Lindsay Lohan after the star admitted that it upset her.

The new Mean Girls movie, which was released back in January, was supposed to be a modern, musical film adaptation of the 2004 cult classic, but instead managed to cause a bit of a stir after a controversial joke left one of the stars of the original feeling extremely "disappointed."

Check out the trailer for the new Mean Girls film if you haven't seen it already:

Lohan voiced her distress after a scene that starred rapper Megan Thee Stallion and the movie's lead Angourie Rice (who portrayed Lohan's role of Cady Heron) brought up the concept of a "fire crotch", a particularly offensive phrase used at Lohan's expense.

"OK, so somebody sent me this look and I was like, 'Hot girls, we are going back red, Y2K fire crotch is back,'" the 'Thot S***' rapper, 29, said.

As well as referring to the actress using the term, he disgustingly asked: "Who would want to f*** her?" which earned laughter from Hilton.

As the pair garnered backlash for the video, Davis eventually apologized for his "inexcusable" comments, saying: "What started out as a joke got completely carried away, I am horrified at the words that came out of my mouth."

So, it’s unsurprising that the Freaky Friday actress's representatives said she was unhappy when the controversial term was mentioned in the new film.

The Independent reported that "Lindsay was very hurt and disappointed by the reference in the film."

Speaking with the outlet, the 63-year-old described the jab as "disgusting," while admitting that he's "p*****" about the entire scene.

He also noted that he will not be watching the movie, stating: "Nobody can replace Lindsay or the original cast in that film," before taking to Instagram to add: "Maybe they should think again about recasting [iconic] roles."

After all the backlash, it seems as though the scene has been cut from the movie.

Yahoo! News reported that the updated cut for streaming and VOD release now has Stallion solely saying: "We are going back to red."

Speaking to IndieWire, new film’s co-director Samantha Jayne said that everyone was "literally counting down the days" until the actress came on set.

"I overcame my just pure unbridled joy and excitement to be able to speak to her. She was so wonderful. So warm," Jayne said. "[Lohan] was so kind to the cast; so wonderful with Angourie [Rice]. And she was so trusting too. We were telling her about this idea: ‘We want to give you a big reveal; we think audiences would really, really enjoy it.'"

"We talked about the need for it to be surprising. We’re massive fans of every iteration of this. It had to be something new. We're 20 years later, it’s a new generation of kids, they speak an entirely new language; it’s a whole new arena," she added.
