Nothing like getting high and then going for a spin on a stationary bike, amirite? Well, so, apparently, thought Amanda Bynes, who was kicked out of Planet Fitness over the weekend for smoking weed in the women's locker room.

RumorFix reports that the 27-year-old actress was discovered toking away by Planet Fitness staffers, was promptly asked to leave the New York facility, and had her membership revoked. A staffer told the gossip site that:

“Planet Fitness does not allow lunks to workout here, and especially no weed smokers!”

Bynes reportedly left with an angry tone to her walk.

For her part, Bynes has denied the claims, and has tweeted at both RumorFix and The Huffington Post, asking them to remove the photo that accompanied the post and then mentioning, as an afterthought, that the story wasn't true anyway. In both tweets, it's not clear what she's more upset about:

@RumorFix I emailed you asking you to choose a better photo. Also remove the story because I don't smoke in the bathroom. I also don't smoke pot I smoke tabacco! There are always tons of photos to choose, you always pick the worst one!
@HuffingtonPost Choose a better photo or remove the story because I don't smoke in the bathroom. I also don't smoke pot I smoke tabacco! There are always tons of photos to choose, you pick the worst one! Read my twitter! Please don't make the same mistake you saw someone else just make! Tweet your contact information if you want to interview me which you seem to be dying to do! Stop writing continuous lies. Post my twit pics! Stop posting old photos!

Bynes has been notorious for doing weird shit lately, including posting a video of herself ostensibly getting ready to go out in which she does nothing but shake her head back and forth, Tweet that she wants Drake to murder her vagina, and write incoherent notes to unnamed ex-boyfriends.
