Amanda Bynes Blames ‘Cancer Patient’ Remark On Poor Grammar
Have you visited Amanda Bynes’ timeline lately? If not, today should be another field day for controversy on A.D.D.
After taking to her Twitter to say that her lawyer will be removing every “fake story” about her from the Internet, the 27-year-old actress/ aspiring rapper shot out another eye-popping tweet. “Not having hair makes me feel like a cancer patient,” she wrote Tuesday (July 16). It didn’t take long for offense to be taken as the former Nickelodeon darling soon sent her sorries via Vanity Fair.
“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 any 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. No, Arendtites, not “banal” as in “the banality of evil”—banal as in, this was a very stupid grammatical error,” she says. “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: determinedness, ambitiousness, impulsiveness, and, I can now say, inexcusably poor grasp of punctuation.)”
Derogatory tweets have been Bynes’ thing since she first asked Drake to do naughty things to her and called other celebs “ugly” on the regular.
She even messed up her apologies, adding, “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.”
