Amanda Bynes seems to be following in Lindsay Lohan’s footsteps, given the DUI charges she received in the past months. According to Us Weekly, the actress was mocked by Anderson Cooper during his show on CNN for sending a Twitter message to President Barack Obama about her DUI case.
“Easy A” star, Amanda Bynes has taken to Twitter to solve her personal issues like many celebrities do these days. The not-so-famous actress was arrested for DUI on previous occasions, but she constantly denied all allegations. On April 6, Bynes drove intoxicated and side swept a police car outside a nightclub in California. Her trial began on Wednesday and Amanda pleaded “not guilty”.
Moreover, the 26-year-old star made an unexpected move that became the most discussed subject of all magazines. She tweeted President Barack Obama urging him to do something against the corrupt police officers who have arrested her even though she was innocent. Her exact message was: “Hey Barack Obama . . . I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”
It’s hard not to poke fun at someone who behaves like Amanda, so people were on the same wavelength with Anderson Cooper when he decided to mock the star in his show. The talk show host began by sympathizing with people who didn’t know who Amanda is, thus, implying that the actress is not as famous as she likes to think.
Cooper even included Amanda on his Ridiculist because she has resorted to her Twitter account to solve her problems. After reading her message to President Obama, the host recalled the moment when Amanda tweeted that she was retiring from the movie industry in 2010 only to write one month later that she will make a big return to the business.
In the end, Anderson Cooper created a list of things that are more important than the actress’ tweets and then, added “basically anything”. He, nevertheless, told the audience that the news that Miley Cyrus is getting married to Liam Hemsworth is “Watergate, the moon landing and the Oscars all rolled into one” when compared to Bynes’ tweets. He encouraged Amanda to give the President a call or maybe send him her number, so he could contact her back whenever she’s in trouble.
