Deep down inside, it felt pretty good and relieving to know that Amanda Bynes had received professional medical help and was on the road to being a better, happier person again. It’s always fun to watch a celebrity have a breakdown in the public eye, bogged down by the pressures of being wealthy and famous, but it was also sad to see that nobody really gave a shit about Amanda, at least enough to step in and demand that she get help. And if you disagree with that and think it’s fun to watch a ship completely sink to the bottom, good news, because Amanda’s mom has taken her off her medication, according to TMZ, and she thinks that marijuana was her daughter’s only problem.
Sure, there’s documented proof that Amanda suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but Mama Bynes knows better than a couple dozen quacks with pieces of paper framed on their walls. It wasn’t a deep, frightening mental health issue that caused Amanda to completely spiral out of control and try to set her dog on fire. It was weed. Congrats in advance to Amanda’s mom on her Parent of the Year award.
