What is it with Amanda and the need for attention this week? She can’t seem to stop. Just now she hated on the all around loved and racy Rihanna by Tweeting offensive remarks. But before we get into that, here is a short recap of what has happened lately:
Amanda supposedly threw a bong out of her appartment window. According to Amanda it was a vase, of course, vases are to be thrown out of windows if cops show up to your doorstep. My vase is looking quite suspect, maybe I should throw it out of my window as well just to be on the safe side. After the well publicized vase event, Miss Bynes claimed on Twitter that a NYPD officer sexually harassed her and touched her “down under.” Internal Affairs is looking into those accusations because they take that very seriously.
After this strange occurrence, she had to go to court, related to the vase throwing/marijuana smoking incident. Amanda thought it would be fun and help prevent people from recognizing her by wearing a hideous, ill fitting and plastic looking wig. She also managed to insult a photographer by calling him “an ugly black man” and she stiffed a cab driver out of $7. A truly class act.
And as if Amanda hadn’t had enough, she felt the need to hate on Rihanna. She wrote: “You look so ugly trying to be white, Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough.” Obviously referring to the incident in 2009 where Brown hit Rihanna.
However she wasn’t done yet. She actually added : “No one wants to be your lover so you call everyone and their mother that I almost named my new dog Rihanna.”
Rihanna herself wasn’t really impressed by Bynes’ hurtful words, and just reacted with a cool tweet of her own: “Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention.”
Amanda wasn’t too pleased with Rihanna’s insult and wanted to see if she could provoke her a bit more by writing: “Unlike ur fugly faced self I don’t do drugs! U need the intervention dog! I met ur ugly face in person! U aren’t pretty u know it!”
The reasons why Amanda suddenly started this attack on Rihanna could be for any number of reasons: attention, fascination or perhaps jealousy. The latter could be caused by a fascination Amanda has with rapper Drake. She is so into him that she actually wrote that he could “murder her private parts.” Rihanna does have a connection with Drake which Miss Bynes seems to lack.
She is also on the warpath with any celebrity that tells her to seek help. Jenny McCarthy actually dare to call Amanda out on her behaviour, suggesting that Bynes was in need of an intervention. However, Amanda didn’t care for this unsolicited advice and shot back aggressively. In the end, the two resolved their issues, and the argument got swept under the rug.
Nobody can deny that Amanda Bynes is in a lot of trouble. She isn’t doing very well, and she should be happy that there are people who actually care about her and are trying to help her get better. That shouldn’t mean she gets “carte blanche” to insult people whenever she feels like it. Given her present circumstances, hating on Rihanna is like the pot calling the kettle black.
