Amanda Bynes Apologizes For Offensive Tweet About Cancer, Has Bizarre Explanation
The Amanda Bynes saga continues. The latest? She offended people by posting on Twitter over the weekend: "Not having hair makes me feel like a cancer patient."
The former actress shaved off her hair earlier this year and has been parading around wearing bizarre and colorful wigs. After receiving backlash for her post, she apologized, claiming she was referring to the astrological sign "Cancer," not the disease.
She clarified, "Oh my God, let me just be the first to say: I can completely see how offense was taken. I truly apologize for the miscommunication... and all resulting discomfort or anger. I'm not a wretched person with zero sense of perspective or respect for fellow human beings; rather, the actual explanation of my statement is something far more banal... this was a very stupid grammatical error.
"What I intended to say was 'not having hair makes me feel like a cancer: patient.' That is, waiting for my hair to grow has made me a more patient person - a trait, in the astrological community, typically associated with those born under the Cancer sign. I'm actually an Aries (traditional traits: inexcusably poor grasp of punctuation.)"
Oh, there's more.
She posted: "Not having your forgiveness makes me feel like I should have Aids... Christ, I've done it again. I meant: not having your forgiveness makes me feel like I should have aides, lower-case and with an 'e'. Aides because I'm clearly in something of a public-relations quagmire. Please accept my second apology."
