Actress AnnaLynne McCord is mocked for uploading a video saying she wishes she’d been Putin’s mom

Actress AnnaLynne McCord is being accused of committing a war crime by writing and sharing a cringeworthy poem that depicted her desire to be Vladimir Putin’s mother.

The former 90210 star shared her musings about the Russian strongman Thursday on Twitter,  drawing harsh criticism from users who called McCord ‘self indulgent,’ and ‘narcissistic’ for drawing attention to herself as Putin leads a brutal attempt to takeover Ukraine.

She began her verse with an apology to 69-year-old Putin.

‘I’m so sorry I was not your mother,’ she said. ‘If I was your mother, you would have been so loved, held in the arms of joyous light.’ 

Meghan McCain led a round of criticism by tweeting: ‘I’m not sure if this is meant to be a parody or truly everyone in Hollywood is just out of their minds. 

‘But thank you to this actress lady for making me smile for the first time in 24 hours. ‘Nailed it girl, wars over.’

Throughout the minute, which lasted 2:20 minutes, McCord, 34, went on about how Putin’s life would have been different if he’d been embraced in her love. 

Although McCord blames the family matriarch throughout the poem, Putin’s mother Maria Shelomova has been characterized by others as a kind factory worker who secretly baptized him as a baby during the Communist era. 

Putin described his mother in an interview posted on the Kremlin’s website as a delicious cook who lived a simple life.

‘We lived very simply cabbage soup, cutlets, pancakes,’ Putin said. ‘But on Sundays and holidays my Mom would bake very delicious stuffed buns with cabbage, meat and rise, and curd tarts.’

However, she hinted in the poem that was speaking metaphorically and referring to Russia with her ‘mother’ references.

The 34-year-old actress proclaimed in her poem that she would have done a better job and spared the world from warfare if only she’d been born earlier.

‘If I was your mother, the world would have been warm,’ she said.  

Putin ordered full-scale invasion of Ukraine this week, and on the first day of conflict 57 people were killed and 169 others were wounded, Ukraine’s health ministry said. 

It all could have been avoided, McCord said, with her motherly love.

‘If I was your mother, if the world was cold, I’d have died to make you warm,’ she said. ‘I’d have died to protect you from the unjust; the violence; the terror; the uncertainty. I would have died to give you life.’

McCord’s poetry failed to elicit much praise on Twitter, with many blasting it as self-centered and ridiculous.  

‘Calm down,’ tweeted @ConceptualBIG after listening to McCord’s poem. ‘There’s no need to torture people using cringe as a weapon.’

Added @articninjapaul: ‘Why do celebs keep sending their audition tapes to Twitter?’ 

‘This should be a war crime,’ tweeted @fishontherun2.

Although most poked fun at the poem, some found it heartfelt.  

‘If you actually listen to her words rather than just making snap judgments, her point is that blind allegiance to a country and power is an ego’s attempt at a replacement for emotional needs that were not met,’ one person tweeted. ‘And she’s right.’
