Amanda Bynes is back on her own and her friends fear that she is not stable enough to handle it. Bynes has been seen out and about in New York City after reports that she flew there from Los Angeles last week. It is unclear if her move back to the East Coast is permanent but there have been several Amanda Bynes sightings and it looks like she might be needing help again soon.
On Monday, TMZ reported that Amanda Bynes was seen attempting to ride a bike through Penn Station. Let’s just say that old saying “it’s like riding a bike” might not apply to Amanda. She looked really shaky trying to make her way through throngs of pedestrians as she peddled along. Bynes’ bike riding skills left many to wonder if she is okay or not.
Despite some outlets reporting that Amanda Bynes looked “normal and stable” during her NYC bike ride, she certainly did not. Bynes’ outfit was an interesting choice for a bike ride. She was wearing an oversize plaid top with cuffed leather pants, plastic flat sandels, a beanie, large sunglasses and the band-aid on her right cheek.
It is unclear why Amanda Bynes is wearing a band-aid on her cheek. It has made several appearances in pictures of Bynes in New York City over the past few days.
Although it is unconfirmed, many are convinced that Amanda Bynes has been using the Twitter handle @PersianLa27. She has a confirmed Twitter account but @AmandaBynes has not been updated since May. Instead, this new “secret” Twitter account has been responding to tweets and articles about Amanda Bynes and many of the responses have been first person. Now the new account contains pictures of Amanda labeled #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) and identifies as Amanda’s account.
Tongues really started wagging about Amanda Bynes’ secret Twitter account recently when rumors started circulating that she was kicked out of design school. In response to Wendy Williams, the @PersianLa27 account tweeted in defense stating that “she” never committed any crimes, never quit school and wasn’t crazy. It was also reported that a picture of a joint was posted to the Twitter account but if so, it has since been removed.
Back in April stories circulated about Amanda Bynes’ mother taking her off her medication. Bynes’ family insisted that she was not schizophrenic and blamed her mental health issues on marijuana use. Bynes was reportedly both medication and drug free at that point and many worried that she would fall back into the erratic behavior that led to her hospitalization.
Many fear Bynes’ most recent behavior indicates a slip in her mental health. Reports are circulating about friends and fans of the star worrying about Amanda Bynes. Unfortunately no one can step in until Bynes proves to be a danger to herself or someone else. If she truly does need medication in order to avoid streaks of erratic and dangerous behavior, let’s hope she realizes that before she gets injured or worse.
