'Studying abroad is fantastic': Amanda Knox's BIZARRE response to student who 'hated' studying in Italy
LOS ANGELES, CALIFRONIA: An NYU student from the US, who spent a semester studying abroad in Italy, has stirred much debate after saying how miserable she found her experience. Amanda Knox, a notorious exchange student who was accused of killing a woman while studying in Italy, was one of those who commented on Stacia Datskovska's piece, which Insider published on March 9. Knox made the joke, "Lady, what are you talking about? Studying abroad is fantastic."
In the article, Stacia, a journalism and international-relations major at New York University, said how she decided to study a semester in Florence. However, she wrote that she "hated every aspect of my semester abroad."
Knox, 35, gained international attention after she was charged with murdering her Italian exchange roommate. She was imprisoned in Italy for four years until she was ultimately found not guilty, as reported by MarieClaire.

Girl, what are you talking about? Studying abroad is awesome!https://t.co/xlEgCKTzqg— Amanda Knox (@amandaknox) March 15, 2023
Despite having great expectations for her semester in Florence, Datskovska claimed that she detested her seven housemates, the "hostile" inhabitants, and her online internship. She claimed that she "came to dislike the people, despise the views, and could not wait to get back home to my college in New York," as per reports.
'This tweet alone is worth an acquittal'
Netizens were mightily impressed by Amanda's Tweet, as soon as she made it. As one of the users said, "I don't even care about the facts of the case, this tweet alone is worth an acquittal." Another user hilariously said, "You have won the internet for the day, Amanda. You can rest easy." The third user sarcastically wrote, "Your tweet deserves an award! (*This essayist sounds like an entitled, xenophobic, solipsistic brat. Or maybe just really depressed. She's going to regret writing this. Ugh.)" The last user wrote about the murder case and tweeted, "Amanda Knox was falsely accused of murder whilst studying abroad in Italy."

Knox was accused of killing her roommate Meredith Kercher
Knox had a miserable experience when only 20 years old and studying overseas. She was accused of killing her roommate Meredith Kercher in 2007, but was eventually found not guilty due to a lack of evidence, as reported by Reuters. Kercher, a 21-year-old student at Leeds University, was discovered dead from multiple stab wounds and a throat slit in the bedroom of the apartment she and Knox rented in Perugia, an Italian hill town.
Prosecutors claimed that the murder resulted from a sex game gone wrong when Knox, who was 20 at the time, and her Italian boyfriend Sollecito, 23, were detained four days later, as per reports.
Found guilty in an Italian court
They were found guilty of raping and killing Kercher in an Italian court. Due to a lack of evidence connecting the couple to the crime, their convictions were overturned after nearly four years in prison. Knox was granted $21,000 in damages, and the Italian government was obliged to pay it. Rudy Guede, 34, who said he was in the bathroom listening to music when Kercher was killed, was instead found guilty after his DNA was found on her body, as reported by DailyMail.
