Amanda Bynes seems to have some serious self-hate issues — taking to social media to announce her own judgement of the appearance of others, Tweeting “Ugly Face” alongside an image of Jay Z. It’s a Tweet which the “What A Girl Wants” actress has since deleted, claiming the post was made by a hacker. Sources say the incident stems from a drug-fueled moment the actress experienced. Don’t believe me.. Ask Michael T. Jordan.
To be sure, not only is the 26-year-old troubled actress far from being a looker – she’s also reported to be an unruly 26-year-old who’s been kicked out of work-out sessions; an unwanted tenant who’s facing an eviction from her NYC pad; and, a criminal who appears to believe she’s above the law. Don’t believe me.. Ask President Obama.
Here’s The Hollywood Reporter’s timeline of her recent woes:

April 4, 2012: Bynes is arrested for DUI. The 26-year-old actress is reportedly pulled over around 3 a.m. in West Hollywood after trying to pass a police car in her BMW and side-swiping the vehicle.
