UPDATE: Amanda Bynes Takes Back Accusations, Says a Micro Chip in Her Brain Made Her Do It


SECOND UPDATE: Amanda Bynes takes it all back. She says a micro chip in her brain made her say these things. Someone had better get power of attorney quick and lock this poor girl up. She is sick. Really, terrible.


UPDATE: Bynes now claims she’s getting a restraining order against her dad.

She wrote on Twitter just now: “I cannot hear the sound of His incestually [sic] charged voice ever again and I’m just being honest. He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and i did not know how to respond and I said no and then My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him. saying or doing something inappropriate around me so I could get him arrested & put in jail for the rest of his perverted life My mom knows that my father’s literally and physically incestual {sic] towards his own daughter and the fact that she never called the police on him embarrasses me to no end”

EARLIER: I’ve never written about child star Amanda Bynes because she’s clearly mentally ill and needs help. But this morning she hit Twitter with a sledge hammer, sending out messages that beg for parental interaction and a conservatorship. She was doing well last spring, but obviously something has snapped. Very sad, almost more about the way she feels about her looks than the “N” word, which she has now used in a coarse and vulgar message. But she’s not in her right mind. Read the Tweets with caution:
