We probably have enough articles, tweets, and photos about Amanda Bynes and what she's gone through the last couple years to publish a 500-page tome on the 27-year-old actress. After being arrested, allegedly throwing a bong out a window, threatening to sue the NYPD for sexual assault, insulting Rihanna, and on and on (and that was just the last few days), the latest is that Amanda's now after model Christine Teigen. Will it ever end?
In one angry Twitter tirade, Amanda wrote:
"Ur not a pretty model compared to me. I signed to Ford models @ age 13. I don't look up to u beauty!"
This was in response to Teigen, a 27-year-old Sports Illustrated model, criticizing anyone supporting Amanda. Hey, you bring up Amanda in any negative light, what more can you expect? This is the only way she can possibly stay relevant.
It all started with: "The fact that Amanda Bynes has any 'support' to retweet is really unsettling," Teigen tweeted. "Support people with mental illness, yes. But don't condone/enable scary and poor behavior."
You really think Bynes was going to let that lie? Nope, on she went with her rant:
I'm offended that you're saying I have a mental illness when I show no sign of it, but thankfully not one man that wants me wants you and you are an old ugly model compared to me! You look 45! You're not pretty so I'm not intimidated by you! I think you're jealous that you're just an ugly model who's career is uninspiring! I don't respect you! You're no beauty queen! I'm a beauty queen!
Oh jeez. Face-palm. "You're no beauty queen! I'm a beauty queen!" Is this real life?
Teigen apparently should have learned from Courtney Love, after Courtney tweeted, "Pull it together, dude" to Amanda. Amanda didn't let that go one either. "Courtney Love is the ugliest woman I've ever seen," Bynes wrote. "To be mentioned by her at all makes me and all my friends laugh!"
Seriously, these juvenile insults are never-ending. You can't help but feel terrible for Amanda and that this can only end in tragedy, but you can't stop watching what she does or says next. Let's just hope she gets the help she needs ... and soon. It should be court-mandated to take Twitter away from celebrities sometimes, don't you think?
This will not be the end of Amanda calling other women ugly on Twitter, I guarantee. Sigh. Until the next Bynes-related headline ...
Do you think Amanda is justified at all to call out people who address her on Twitter?
