Amanda Bynes is officially out of the psychiatric facility, and showing us why she was committed there in the first place with a Twitter rant for the ages.
To the surprise and dismay of many, Amanda Bynes was released from psychiatric care last night after the facility decided they could not hold her there.
She had been placed under a 30-day involuntary hold at the Pasadena, Calif., hospital, but lobbied to be released and officials shockingly obliged.
Believing she was lucid and that legally she could not be held there any longer, he involuntary commitment was invalidated and she was cut loose.
Almost immediately, we're seeing why that decision will be immediately second guessed and may even prove extraordinarily dangerous before long.
In an epic and ongoing Twitter rant, the actress accused her father of sexual assault for the second time, and announced plans to get out of her conservatorship.
Here's what she's had to say in the last three hours:
All words simply fail us at this point.
It would be so, so funny if it weren't so, so sad and a little scary. It's not clear if Bynes really will be in court today and the outcome if so is even less certain.
After her parents' first conservatorship lapsed this summer, Amanda moved out of their house, failed out of school, and got arrested for DUI again.
A period of bizarre behavior soon followed.
Sam Lutfi, her "friend" and Britney Spears' former confidant, engineered a ruse earlier this month that ended with Bynes confined to the hospital.
She's clearly not happy about this.
Her current whereabouts are not known, but she's already made quite an appearance on L.A.'s Sunset Strip, specifically in the middle of one hotel lobby.
Bynes tried to get a room at London hotel after her release, but was turned away; Amanda has stayed there before and caused problems, TMZ reports.
The actress' response? Reaching into her bag, grabbing a giant wad of money and tossing the bills into the air in the direction of the front desk.
