(Newser) – Gossip outlets have been publishing pictures of Amanda Bynes looking disheveled, not well, and all around odd. And her reactions haven't done much to combat the consensus that she's losing it. First she threatened to sue, then she claimed there's an Amanda Bynes lookalike running around New York posing as her to fool the media. Her latest response to the frenzy: She's informed the Twitterverse that she has an eating disorder, Radar reports.

"I'm suing certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness! They take pictures anytime I've gained weight then write a fake story!" she tweeted last night. "I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin. They write a news article about every tweet I write and I hate the pictures they choose. They repeat what I tweet then add a bad photo." Jezebel has screen shots of the tweets.

As with any other celebrity,the news media has her under close scrutiny so they can bring to light any flaws or behavioral faux pas in order to sell stories to The Enquirer or other scurriless celebrity gossip rags.Amanda Bynes seems to be a nice person and should be entitled to a decent measure of respect.
