Amanda Bynes recently came under fire after tweeting a photo of hip hop mogul Jay-Z and referring to him as "ugly." The tweet has since been removed.
On Feb. 6, the troubled actress infuriated many of her 274,000 twitter followers after tweeting the photo directly to Jay-Z, alongside the photo caption "Ugly face." It is unclear why exactly the 26-year-old felt compelled to openly attack the rapper, however she eventually deleted the tweet, according to Daily Mail.
Bynes has been exhibiting rather unusual behavior in recent years stemming from her 2010 announcement that she was retiring from acting at age 24. Shortly before explaining her decision to end her once-promising career in a series of tweets, the actress randomly reaffirmed her taste in men.
"I like black men I'm very attracted to them just fyi," Bynes tweeted in 2010.
Two months prior she bizarrely shared details about her love life, possibly in response to rumors that she was dating rapper Kid Cudi.
"it's amazing how good it feels when someone knows how to love your body! I am having withdrawals from a certain guy lol :)" Bynes tweeted. "So turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting."
The actress has faced a series of ongoing legal woes stemming from her April 2012 arrest for driving under the influence. In addition to various police pull overs and a license suspension, Bynes was photographed smoking out of a pipe, sparking fears of a possible drug addiction.
Some fans have questioned whether her odd Jay-Z Twitter attack may have been the result of a hacking. Others have pointed out that the strange tweet is consistent with her increasingly bizarre antics. Critics subsequently flocked to social networking site Twitter to condemn the actress.
"Amanda Bynes called Jay-z ugly on twitter, he's not the sexiest man but whose seen Amanda lol she's no oil painting herself," Patrice tweeted.
"The girl needs help! She's clearly STILL on drugs. She's a ticking time bomb where are her parents?? RE: Amanda Bynes calls Jay-Z ugly," Katherine. R tweeted.
"Amanda Bynes is so disrespectful! Why worry about how Jay-Z looks when you clearly have severe mental issues that need attention?!" Pearl tweeted.
