Winning? Is Amanda Bynes 'Doing A Charlie Sheen?'

Amanda Bynes latest Twitter rant was levelled squarely at drag queen RuPaul, whom the television star described as being as ugly as her father. Bynes had begun the day by referring to writers at People magazine as "faggots," saying, ""Um, Peoplemag Hello? I'm not lost and alone! W H A T T H E F * C K A R E Y O U T A L K I N G A B O U T ? Follow me on twitter you faggots!"

Though she quickly deleted the tweet, RuPaul caught a glimpse of it, replying, "Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS an outward projection of a person's own poisonous self-loathing @AmandaBynes." Of course, Amanda took the bait and responded to RuPaul with a wave of abuse, saying, "My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous!"

RuPaul is known for her strong stance on derogatory slurs and told the Huffington Post's Gay Voices last year, "[I]n the ACT UP age we called ourselves queers because we earned the right, we took the word back. But in reality, once you go even deeper, you know, you have to come from intent. And black folks call themselves the n-word all the time. It's because the intent is coming from a place of love. If the intent is coming from a place of hatred, that's different"

Bynes' tweet isn't the only offensive message she's sent out in recent weeks. Last Sunday, she told Rihanna she that Chris Brown had beaten her because she wasn't pretty enough. In a Charlie Sheen-esque meltdown, Bynes has been displaying unusual behaviour since her arrest for reckless endangerment at the New York City apartment last month. After Sheen was arrested for a disturbance at a Manhattan hotel, he became a high profile presence on Twitter though there are distinctions between both situations. Firstly, many of Sheen's tweets were pretty funny. Amanda Bynes' tweets are mostly offensive. Secondly, the Hollywood actor already had a roguish reputation - his 'meltdown' only won him a new legion of fans. Bynes appears to be losing followers by the minute.
