Amanda Bynes: Who Are Her Biggest Defenders?

Amanda Bynes departs Manhattan Central Booking Friday after being arrested reckless endangerment, tampering with …Amanda Bynes is having another bad week. What started with her rejection from a private jet (no ID) has ended with her arrest for allegedly acting reckless and tossing a bong out of her New York City apartment window, and making a disturbed-looking appearance in court Friday. What happened in between—having pics of her messy pad appear in In Touch Weekly, which she has threatened to sue over the “fake photos”—hasn’t helped matters.

But there’s one thing that might help, if just a little: her adoring Twitter fan base, which refers to Bynes as “Queen,” enjoys Photoshopping her image into wacky collages, and has been busy defending the troubled actor like mad. Check it out:

One particularly zealous fan, @amandafordays, may have only a single follower (and it's not Bynes), but spends time defending the actor's honor, and even claims to have gotten death threats over it.

Other online Amanda fan spaces include a few barely followed Facebook pages—Amanda Bynes Italian Fans (576 likes), Amanda Bynes Fans (22 likes), and the Amanda Bynes Fan Club (19 likes)—and some sparsely supported websites, including Just Amanda Bynes, which posts all news about the overexposed 28-year-old.

Twitter, though, is where Amanda worship is really at, with fans declaring their love and support for her by using hashtags including #teamamanda and #teambynes, and by calling her their "Queen." Creating oddly constructed photos of Bynes, which she quickly retweets, is a particularly favorite pastime.
