AnnaLynne McCord is not only an actor but also a poet. The 90210 star recently shared a video of herself reciting a poem she wrote about Vladimir Putin in light of Russia’s attack on Ukraine. Here’s what McCord said and how fans are reacting.
AnnaLynne McCord shared a poem she wrote about what it would be like if she was Vladimir Putin’s mother
In the two-minute and twenty-second clip, McCord said she was “so sorry” that she “was not [his] mother,” because if she had been, Putin would’ve been “so loved.” McCord went on to speculate that Putin must have seen “soul-stealing pain” as a little boy to not shy away from “taking back the world.”
Addressing Putin, McCord said, “If I was your mother, if the world was cold, I’d have died to make you warm.”
She concluded the poem by saying, “I cannot believe I was born too late, in a different place, when I would have loved you so.”
Fans are reacting to the bizarre clip
Since AnnaLynne McCord posted her poem about Vladimir Putin, fans have been sounding off on social media and criticizing the actor.
“AnnaLynne McCord fantasizing about how she could have saved the world if she’d been Putin’s mother is so gross,” one person tweeted. “Her performance is self-involved and careless, with people fleeing for their lives while she roleplays hypothetically saving the world BEFORE it went to s—.”
Many have pointed out that it seems like McCord is blaming Putin’s mother for his violent deeds. “So it’s Putin’s mother’s fault?” one person tweeted.
And another fan compared McCord’s video to when Disney star Vanessa Hudgens said people dying from the coronavirus (COVID-19) was “inevitable.” “Annalynne McCord really said Putin needs a hug. A world leader,” they tweeted. “Where’s Vanessa hudgens, our CDC correspondent.”
Fans are comparing AnnaLynne McCord’s Vladimir Putin poem to Gal Gadot’s ‘Imagine’ video
Besides Vanessa Hudgens’ coronavirus scandal, many fans are also comparing AnnaLynne McCord’s Vladimir Putin poem to Gal Gadot’s “Imagine” video.
In March 2020, the Wonder Woman star posted a video of herself and several other celebrities, including Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Zoë Kravitz, Natalie Portman, and Jamie Dornan, singing the John Lennon song “Imagine.” Gadot hoped the video would cheer up fans amid global lockdowns due to the coronavirus pandemic. The clip received a lot of backlash and was widely criticized as being tone-deaf and in poor taste.
Fans are drawing comparisons between Gadot’s video and McCord’s poem with tweets like, “The one person happy about the @IAMannalynnemcc video? @GalGadot and whoever the other people were in that cringy vomit-inducing Imagine video.”
“Remember that unbearably smug, self-obsessed idiotic ‘Imagine’ video? That was @GalGadot,” one person tweeted. “She now has a new best friend in @IAMannalynnemcc. You pair of monumental idiots. Delete your accounts. Please.”
And another person simply tweeted, “AnnaLynne McCord outdid Gal Gadot with her cringy poem.”
