Amanda Bynes has, in a matter of three days, managed to make all of her previous legal troubles and social media oversharing seem trivial. She was arrested on Thursday for allegedly tossing her bong out of her apartment window. Then, she accused one of the arresting NYPD officers of sexually assaulting her, which prompted an internal investigation and lots of social media speculating. Had the tweet really come from Amanda Bynes? Could all this stuff possibly happen so quickly? Now, not 24 hours since her last Twitter outburst, the actress has instigated a minor Twitter feud with Rihanna.
Earlier this afternoon, Bynes tweeted (and then quickly deleted) the following: “@rihanna Chris Brown beat you because you're not pretty enough." Bynes followed that fairly horrible statement with some lyrically cryptic insult about naming her dog Rihanna:
@rihanna no one wants to be your lover so you call everyone and your mother that I almost named my new dog Rihanna
In her response, Rihanna appeared largely unmoved by Bynes’ Twitter provocations:
Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?— Rihanna (@rihanna) May 26, 2013
TMZ updated its original story with yet another tweeted/deleted message from Bynes: “"@rihanna 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!" Where did all this come from? Has Amanda Bynes initiated her self-destruct sequence? So many questions, and not one of them will make Amanda Bynes’ behavior any less troubling.
