Amanda Bynes comparing her self-inflicted baldness to being a cancer patient was SOOOOO not cool.
But it’s OK, guys, this can all be explained away with a simple punctuation mark!!
At least according to Amanda, it can! ABynes apparently now has her own Vanity Fair column which she uses to put her odd and frequent Twitter mishaps into perspective. It's true!!!
So, straight from Miz Bynes herself, here’s what REALLY happened:
"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. You’ll see the offending tweet below. 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.)"
Still sounds pretty far-fetched, but we appreciate the creativity!! And we loved the screen cap shout out!
Taking the word "cancer" and explaining it to be the horoscope version of "Cancer," and then twisting the medical version of the word "patient" and aligning it instead with its homonym relating to patience??
No wonder Vanity Fair took her on board, LOLz!
