Then, taking to Twitter, Ms. Bynes released a number of inappropriate and provocative content to her feed. Next, while at the gym, Amanda's trainer had to kick her out of a session due to her bizarre behavior which included jumping off of work out equipment, walking in circles, lifting up her shirt and putting on makeup in the mirror. Taking to Twitter once more Amanda is noted calling her self and other female celebrities "ugly" and bashes anyone who attempts to lend her helpful advice.
