Vanity Fair columnist Amanda Bynes revealed: 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.)
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.
