Amanda Bynes apologizes for offensive cancer tweet

amanda_bynes_nt_130502_wg After posting an offensive message on Twitter about cancer, Amanda Bynes tried to explain what she really meant and apologize.

The actress shaved off her hair earlier this year due to, as she explained, severe damage by salon treatments her hair suffered. Recently she tweeted: “Not having hair makes me feel like a cancer patient.”

This really enraged many of her followers who accused Amanda of being disrespectful and she tried to explain that it was just a grammatical error and she was referring to the astrological sign cancer.

Amanda-BynesShe wrote: “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 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… this was a very stupid grammatical error. 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: inexcusably poor grasp of punctuation.)”
