Amanda Bynes Denies Making Mean Rihanna Tweets
In your daily dose of Amanda Bynes cray cray, the actress took to Twitter yet again, this time to deny having made those awful tweets about Rihanna.Bynes now claims that it wasn't her who tweeted "Chris Brown beat you because you're not pretty enough" to the 'Umbrella' singer.
"I saw a bunch of mocked up tweets about me bashing Rihanna in my mentions. I'm followed by so many people that someone is always mocking up fake tweets so I feel the need to address them!," Bynes wrote. Right, she got hacked, just like those people at Amy's Bakery. Happens all the time. She's apparently deleted many of the tweets in the meantime, but you can find her latest rantings over at TMZ.
During her brief apology tour of Twitter, Bynes then bashed Rihanna some more. After claiming someone "mocked up" images of her head on someone else's body to inaccurately portray her as a pothead, she tweeted, "I am allergic to marijuana and alcohol but I smoke tobacco. Why does Rihanna smoke weed and not get in trouble for it but I smoke tobacco and people think I'm on drugs?"
She went on to claim, "I don't need to go to rehab" and "I'm sick of all the lies."
So are we, Amanda, so are we.
She added, "My lawyer knows I'm a model citizen who doesn't partake in drugs. He's going to court this week to set the record straight again on my behalf. Thankfully I'm an educated multi-milionaire who knows better than to speak to perverted unjust cops without my lawyer."
And among her "final words" on the subject: "For once and for all, this is the last thing I'll say about the mistaken arrest. I'm suing NYPD for illegally entering my apartment, lying about drugs on me and lying about me tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia, then I'm suing for being put into a mental hospital against my will, then locked up overnight for coming home after a facial and working out with my trainer like the good girl that I am."
