Amanda Bynes Tweets Topless Pics

Just one day after tweeting pictures of herself in nothing but a black bra and pantyhose, Amanda Bynes decided it would be a great idea to tweet topless selfies to her more than 870,000 followers.

Though not entirely out of character given her recent erratic behavior, the pictures reportedly caused caused Kim Kardashian’s ex-publicist Jonathan Jaxson to call the police.

“I just spoke to @AmandaBynes and she is soooo messed up on drugs and please @NY_POLICE find her and help her,” he tweeted. “I don’t know her address! @TMZ”

Much has been made of the former teen stars disturbing Twitter presence. Bynes keeps insisting that she’s not on drugs, she’s not drinking, and she’s not mentally ill. “I’m not crazy,” she recently told InTouch in an exclusive interview.

Jenny McCarthy, a voice of reason in the social media circus, called on people to leave the actress alone.

“Police are at @AmandaBynes house,” she wrote to her 891,057 followers “I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help.”

To which Bynes responded: “You’re ugly! Police weren’t at my house old lady! Shut the f**k up!…I need help? What are u talking about? Aren’t u 50 years old? I’m 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me?”

The tweet has since been deleted. Bynes apologized for her reaction in another tweet directed at McCarthy on Thursday.
