AnnaLynne McCord's Message For Putin Has The Internet Absolutely Cringing

Russia's invasion into Ukraine on February 23 shocked the world, with many celebrities voicing their concerns over the attacks. Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Regina Spektor reflected on her Russian and Ukrainian heritage in an emotional post on Instagram, comparing Russian president Vladimir Putin to Nazis during World War II.

"There were, and still are, real Nazis in the world," she wrote. "But in Ukraine that are just millions of civilians being pulled into a war, and in Russia there are children being sent to fight and die for no reason other than the bottomless and horror filled 'more more more more more more more' of politicians and corporations." Meanwhile, "Dancing With the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy posted about the trauma he's experiencing in the capital after returning to his home country to host a dance competition.

However, not all celebrities are good at expressing their thoughts on world events. "90210" actor AnnaLynne McCord posted a message for Putin that has everyone absolutely cringing.

AnnaLynne McCord's plea for peace was not well-received

Following the news of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, AnnaLynne McCord shared a spoken word poem on Twitter that is generating massive backlash. In the video, McCord declared regret for not being Putin's mother, and said if she had been, she could have protected him from his perceived pain, and spared the world anguish from his actions.

"Dear Mister President Vladimir Putin, I'm so sorry that I was not your mother. If I was your mother, you would have been so loved," McCord began her poem. "Helmed in the arms of joyous light. Never would this story's plight. The world unfurled before our eyes, a pure demise. Of nations sitting peaceful under a night sky." She continued, "If I was your mother, the world would have been warm. So much laughter and joy. Nothing would harm." She went on to say that Putin's torturous childhood has led him to become who he is today because he didn't have any motherly love. Needless to say, people were not impressed with her poem.

"This might be the worst tweet of all time. This alone should land you a spot in The Hague," one user tweeted, while another wrote, "This is not the time for such ridiculous shows of self indulgence." Other users compared McCord's video to when Gal Gadot rounded up celebrities to sing "Imagine" at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Critics slammed Gadot for being insensitive, according to NBC News, and the video was quickly mocked on social media.
