AnnaLynne McCord‘s message to Vladimir Putin has caused a stir on social media.
The following video was shared on Twitter, February 24, 2012. 90210 actress recited an original poem addressed to the Russian president, suggesting that she could have been more of a positive influence to him if she was his mother. 
“I’m so sorry that I was not your mother,” AnnaLynne, 34, said in part. You would be so loved if I were your mother. Holding you in joyous light. The world would never unfold before our eyes, as this tale’s tragic ending shows. A pure demise. The peaceful existence of a nation in the dark.
The Nip/Tuck actresses’ video message was met with immediate backlash from several people who thought her message was “tone-deaf” as Vladimir ordered Russian military forces to commence a full-scale invasion of Ukraine by way of sea, land and air. One commentator said that this was worse than signing a petition.
