The Word: Amanda Bynes’ Twitter fight with model Chrissy Teigen
Psychiatry students nationwide must be poring over Amanda Bynes’ Twitter feed. It’s not every day they get such a clear window into the mind of a — well, it’s not clear what she is. A well-adjusted young lady with a lot of haters, according to her.
Model Chrissy Teigen tweeted her concern at Amanda, only to live to regret it. “The fact that Amanda Bynes has any “support” to retweet is really unsettling,” she said. “Support people with mental illness, yes. But don’t condone/enable scary and poor behavior.”
Would you believe Amanda reacted badly to that? “Ur not a pretty model compared to me. I signed to Ford models @ age 13. I don’t look up to u beauty wise. I’m far prettier than u! 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 whos career is uninspiring! I don’t respect you! You’re no beauty queen! I’m a beauty queen!” she responded.
Weirdly, at this point what I find most disturbing is that Amanda is a pretty good speller. At some point she was getting a decent education, before becoming the high class hobo she currently seems to be.
So what is going on with her? Even she probably doesn’t know, since she refuses to get help. Her parents believe she may be schizophrenic, according to Radar, but their efforts to gain a conservatorship are fruitless so far.
Despite her claims, there is no evidence that Amanda was sexually harassed by cops when she was arrested for throwing a bong out of her apartment window last week, police said on Monday.
“Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes’ allegations,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne told The New York Post. “To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that none touched Ms. Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time.”
