casey anthony long hair smileAs if Casey Anthony wasn't already the creepiest thing since, oh, I don't know, O.J., the killer mom waited until the day of her sentencing to let her hair down ... literally. It's almost as if she said to herself, "Hmm, what can I do to send a message to the world that I'm now officially footloose and fancy free? I know! I'll ditch the bun and go for a modified beehive."

Apparently even her parents were overheard talking about how "beautiful" their daughter looked in the courtroom, and her lawyers were seen stroking her hair. Um, gross!?!? And I'm not the only one who's disgusted by Anthony's hairy faux pas.

Twitter is exploding with Anti-Anthony sentiments. Among the most notable ...

#casey anthony IM GLAD CASEY GREW HER HAIR, IT WILL BE A LOT EASIER TO GRAB HER WHEN WE C HER ON THE STREET! STREET JUSTICE!

susieq5678:

R there no mirrors in jail cause Casey Anthony hair is a hot mess.

mikeyshowlauren:

Number of times Casey Anthony played with her hair today exactly equal to the number of searches for "chloroform." So many coincidences in this case!

LadyJay712:

I wanna smack that smile off Casey Anthony's face! B*tch even wore her hair down cause she thought she was getting out today?! Ugh so unfair!

I couldn't agree more with LadyJay712 ... the smile is even more offensive than the hair. Even if she wasn't guilty (which SHE IS), it would still be wildly inappropriate for Anthony to suddenly start dolling herself up -- this case was about the death of her 2-year-old child, and the bulls**t verdict doesn't change the fact that her daughter is dead. I mean, for god's sake, when I was little, I still had a couple of great aunts on my Italian side who dressed exclusively in black from the day they were widowed until the day they died. Pink ruffles and lipstick? Really?

I guess Anthony's new look falls right in line with her announcement that she'd like to get pregnant again and maybe even adopt, under the category of "absolute worst things to do/say after being cleared of your child's murder." So while I'm not horribly surprised, I'm not exaggerating when I say that I truly felt a chill go down my spine when I saw Anthony sporting those flowing locks.

What do you think of Casey Anthony's new hairstyle?
