Abigail Breslin has learned what it means to send a tweet you regret.

The Little Miss Sunshine star thought she was harmlessly tweeting when she posted modified lyrics of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space."

Addressing her 169,000 followers, Breslin, 18, tweeted and has since deleted, "Cuz darling I'm a nightmare dressed like an emotionally unstable cat lady." In the hook, Swift, 24, sings, "Cuz darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream."

Media outlets quickly jumped on the actress' tweet claiming that she was calling Swift an "unstable cat lady," but Breslin since has refuted the allegations against her. She followed up with another tweet, posting, "to clarify: my tweet earlier quoting a taylor swift lyric was me saying I AM AN EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE CAT LADY. NOT TAYLOR. JSYK."

Apparently that wasn't enough, though, as she also discussed the tweet-gone-wrong in an interview with HuffPost Live. She clarified once again that the tweet was referring to herself.

"What's so crazy is that everybody who follows me on Twitter knows that I just got surprised with a kitten a week ago by my family," she said.

"I was walking in my apartment, I stopped in front of my mirror and I had my hair in a top knot and my glasses on and no makeup on and a bathrobe on with my cat and like a hand full of its food like trying to give it medicine, and I was like 'Wow, my life. I look like an emotionally unstable cat lady,'" she explained.

Just in case that still wasn't enough, the host made her address the camera directly to admit whether or not there is a catfight with Swift.

"That song is amazing," she said. "Everybody loves that song. Why would I be insulting it? Like, it was just so bizarre."

"Taylor, I have no beef with you," she said.
