Poor Ashley Benson! The Pretty Little Liars star was just trying to make a little joke on social media, but she instead sparked some major controversy with a photo mocking troubled actress Amanda Bynes.
Ashley uploaded a photo to her Instagram page Wednesday of herself posing like Amanda with the caption, “”Doing my Amanda bynes look this afternoon.” The photo has since been deleted, but not before she received several comments hounding her for mocking someone with a mental illness.
On the other hand Ashley also had a bunch of supporters, who argued that if Amanda can go around calling everyone “ugly,” there’s nothing wrong with Ashley posting a funny photo like she did.
Amanda was taken into custody on a 5150 psychiatric hold Monday, and doctors are currently trying to evaluate her mental state. Reports say that her parents plan to go to court Friday to get a temporary conservatorship over their daughter, so they can have control of her financial and personal affairs.
