Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler has her own advice series on YouTube entitled "Ask Amy." The series is featured on her YouTube channel "Smart Girls." In this video series, the 41-year-old actress and soon-to-be-author answers questions from young women who send them in. In this installment, a 16-year-old girl asks Amy about avoiding awful, indecent, and violent images and videos on the Internet even if all of your friends have seen them and are talking about them. In light of this week's events, Poehler's advice turns to an open letter to the city she grew up in: Boston, Massachusetts.
The YouTube page description of this video reads:
"Just because something has a gazillion views doesn't mean it's worth your eyeballs. What do you want your eyes to see on the Internet?"
It also includes the overall advice that Amy says in the video:
"I feel like my eyes need a break, don't you?"
Without ruining anymore of the great message to a young girl and then the whole city of Boston, here is the video:
Poehler, who recently announced that she would be releasing a nonlinear memoir with illustrations, was most recently in the headlines for getting on Taylor Swift's bad side with a Golden Globes joke. Her co-host, Tina Fey, cracked a joke about the singer's dating life and old Swift to "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son" and focus on herself with "me time."
Then Poehler told Taylor to "go for it." The Internet did not like this joke and apparently neither did the country star and pop sensation.
When asked what she thought of the joke, Swift responded: "You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'"
Both Poehler and Fey have since apologized for the joke.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
