Why do people justify weird posts and replies by saying that they are/were drunk?

I’ve seen this a lot lately and it upsets me because people should take responsibility for their stupid actions or hurtful words they wrote.

It’s not a good idea to be drunk and on G@G. Just don’t.
It’s never an excuse to say that, but I was thinking that it may be a status thing for young Americans/Australians (I know that in other countries the laws are also strict but there are a lot of Americans on here so I’m basing my question on this assumption). I really don’t know, you tell me. Is it considered cool to drink before you’re 21 in the states?
What about drinking and driving?
