SNL star Amy Poehler recently found herself on the Twitter trending page, courtesy of her uncanny resemblance to a certain Britney Simmons, who has acquired quite the notorious reputation online.
Speaking about the latter, Britney Simmons is believed to be a 24-year old stripper who gained worldwide notoriety after a bizarre report of her altercation with five police officers went viral on Twitter recently.
The eye-catching headline above belongs to a report by satirical fake news website "World News Daily," which chronicled the fanciful altercation between Britney Simmons and Miami Police.
According to the report, police were called to apprehend Simmons, who was allegedly intoxicated and behaving erratically.
However, she decided to resist arrest in a rather mind-boggling fashion, as the report claims that she left officers momentarily indisposed by - believe it or not- ejecting her bodily fluids towards them.
This apparently left "two officers injured and three temporarily blinded." The report also states that if she is convicted of aggravated assault with a "deadly weapon" against five police officers, legal experts believe Simmons could face up to 1,036 years in jail.
Upon reading this report, several Twitter users not only found it hard to stifle a laugh but also pointed out Simmons' uncanny resemblance to Amy Poehler.
As a result of this bizarre trend, the "Inside Out" star found herself trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons, leaving Twitter users scandalized in the process.
