RuPaul Slams Amanda Bynes After She Tweets 'Faggot' In Latest Rant

Posted: Updated:

RuPaul had some choice words for Amanda Bynes after the troubled young starlet hurled the anti-gay slur "faggots" on Twitter.

Bynes referred to the writers at People magazine as "faggots" in a tweet from her verified account Saturday, the Advocate notes.

"Um, @Peoplemag Hello? I'm not lost and alone! W H A T T H E F U 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!" she wrote, via DListed. The tweet has since been deleted, but RuPaul apparently caught a glimpse of the former Nickelodeon star's message.

Bynes also went on to call RuPaul "ugly" (an insult she seems to be quite fond of).

RuPaul previously discussed the use of certain slurs during an interview with HuffPost Gay Voices and Sirius XM's OutQ last year.

"[I]n the ACT UP age we called ourselves queers because we earned the right, we took the word back," he explained. "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' "faggot" tweet is not the only offensive message she's sent out in recent weeks. Bynes unleashed a rant against Rihanna, which included a racist jab, last Sunday, May 26. She said the singer was attacked by Chris Brown because she isn't pretty enough but later claimed the tweets were "mocked up."

The 27-year-old actress' unusual behavior began back in 2010 when she announced she was "retiring" from acting, only to "unretire" just weeks later. Her behavior got progressively worse, culminating with her May 23 arrest for reckless endangerment after she allegedly threw a bong out the window of her New York City apartment building after building officials called the cops to report she had been smoking marijuana in the lobby.
