AnnaLynne McCord Criticized Over Poem Addressed to Vladimir Putin
AnnaLynne McCord‘s message to Vladimir Putin has caused a stir on social media.
In a video posted to Twitter on Feb. 24, the 90210 actress recited an original poem addressed to the Russian president, suggesting that she could have been more of a positive influence to him if she was his mother.
“I’m so sorry that I was not your mother,” AnnaLynne, 34, said in part. “If I was your mother you would have been so loved. Held in the arms of joyous light. Never would this story’s plight, the world unfurled before our eyes. A pure demise. Of nation sitting peaceful under a night sky.”
The Nip/Tuck actresses’ video message was met with immediate backlash from several people who thought her message was “tone-deaf” as Vladimir ordered Russian military forces to commence a full-scale invasion of Ukraine by way of sea, land and air. One user commented, “This is worse than making a petition.”
