Taylor Momsen's Haiti rebuttal

Momsen on Haiti

Taylor Momsen struck back at haters who say she doesn't care about the crisis in Haiti.

Momsen on HaitiThe Gossip Girl star managed to repulse millions of people in one fell swoop with a self-absorbed response to the earthquake in Haiti that has left thousands dead and countless more injured, homeless and hungry, without adequate water or medical care.

When asked what she planned to do to help, Momsen replied, "Um, right now I'm trying to just finish my record and get through the last season of Gossip Girl for right now. So not so much thinking about that. But it's awesome that everyone is, you know, working towards a good cause."

The mind boggles.

After incurring the wrath of the interwebs, the teen took to her Twitter with a thoughtful intelligent response to clear the air -- except she's no Einstein, so her plan rather backfired.

Momsen wrote, "I might not gonna attend the Haiti fundraising events, but that doesn't mean I'm not helping the victims! some ppl are just too stupid."

Indeed, darlings, some people are just too the author of that Tweet, for example.

So what do you think: Should she get a pass because she's 17 and, by definition, vainglorious? Should she be more caring and thoughtful regardless of her age?
