AnnaLynne McCord Stirs up Controversy with Putin Poem

Actress AnnaLynne McCord is making news and receiving criticism for her comments on the crisis of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The "90210" star recited a poem to Russian President Vladimir Putin in which she informs him of all she would of done “if I was your mother."

"Dear President Vladimir Putin. I'm so sorry that I was not your mother," McCord begins in the self-shot video. "If I was your mother, you would have been so loved, held in the arms of joyous light. Never with this story’s plight, the world unfurled before our eyes a pure demise of nation’s sitting peaceful under a night sky."

She Continued,

"If I was your mother, the world would have been warm. So much laughter and joy and nothing would harm. I can't imagine the stain, the soul-stealing pain that the little boy you must have seen and believed and the formulation of thought quickly taught that you lived in a cruel, unjust world," she continued. "Is this why you now decide no one will get the best of you? Is this why you do not hide nor away shy from taking back the world?"


"Was it because so early in life, all that strife wracked your little body with fear?" McCord asks Putin. "If I was a mother, if the world was cold, I would've died to make you warm. I'd have died to protect you from the unjust, the violence, the terror, the uncertainty. I would have died to give you life. Oh dear, Mr. President Putin, if only I'd been your mother. Perhaps the torture of unwrit youth would not within your heart imbue ascription to such fealty against that world that you thought was so cruel."
"Perhaps you would hold dear human life. And on this night, instead of Mother Russia you would call me and I would set your mind quite free with the love that only a mother can give and only a mother can take away," the actress pressed.

she concluded by saying,

"When hold, she doesn't harm at bay and leaves her boy for the promise of a man, whatever your story, Mr. President, Putin, I can't imagine how it feels in your heart, but I know if I was your mother, I would be a start towards the awareness of what a powerful being of light you could be if your mind was only free from the violence you’ve seen when you were just two or three. I cannot believe I was born too late. In a different place when I would have loved you so. Watched to play wherever you go,"

McCord’s Putin plea at the time of publishing garnered more than 9 million views. With her comment section being littered with slick comments and critical remarks.
