Open mouth, insert foot! It looks like Aubrey O’day has found herself on the receiving end (no pun intended…seriously) of bad publicity AGAIN! She was recently a guest on Fox News’ Sean Hannity Show and when asked to weigh in on her thoughts on both Fidel Castro & Adolf Hitler, the moment becomes blog worthy. Give it a listen! Later on, she took to her Twitter page and blog to further defend her words:
“Murderers and dictators generally are some of the smartest people out there – they just use their brain power for evil purposes. I don’t condone any of their evil behavior, but I was asked about their intellectual firepower…and in my opinion you can’t have a low IQ and wreak that much havoc on the world. What Hitler succeeded in doing, was deplorable… And I hope we never see such an abusive use of power again. Ultimately, an individual’s IQ is sadly not always indicative of a strong moral compass, and should not be confused for the purity of their heart and mind. My responses on “Hannity” reflect that distinction.”
If Aubrey wrote that on her own, I give her props because the explanation and wording are superb. But with all the PR hounds and yes-people that a lot of these celebrities have at their beck and call, you just never know. What do you guys think of this whole ordeal?
*sidenote: After reading her blog, I can totally see her perspective. Although I do believe that some things are just better left unsaid, I feel that had she been given more of an opportunity to explain her point, people would not be so up in arms about the whole deal.
