ashley benson amanda bynes Ashley Benson mocks Amanda Bynes on Twitter, draws backlash

Mocking Amanda Bynes‘ strange antics felt like a public pastime in recent months, at least until the troubled child star was hospitalized by police on an involuntary psychiatric hold and it was reported that she is believed to be schizophrenic. Then people finally started to back off as it has become clear that she is suffering from some form of mental illness and might finally be getting the help she needs.

Apparently “Spring Breakers” star Ashley Benson missed the memo, because she posted a photo to her Instagram account mocking Bynes. “Doing my Amanda bynes look this afternoon,” Benson Instagrams along with a photo of her parodying Bynes’ wink.

Though some thought the joke was funny, others found it to be in bad taste. Many people reprimanded her on Twitter because of Bynes’ recently hospitalization. Bynes won’t be able to lash back at Benson and call her “ugly” because she’s on psychiatric hold for what looks like it will be the next two weeks.
