Hillary Duff Was Totally Holding That Cigarette For a Friend
Hillary Duff caused a bit of outrage among the health and wellness police that is the internet when she was photographed holding a cigarette only a few months after giving birth to her son, Luca.
But Duff has taken to Twitter to let the world know that it wasn't her cigarette -- she was holding it for a friend:
Yikes me holding a cigarette for my friend might have been a bad idea! pretty bummed about the photo.. Sorry guys, looks worst than it is!— Hilary Duff (@HilaryDuff) June 18, 2012
So, yeah. It belonged to her friend. Just like that weed your mom found in your pocket in high school.
