Fame can be overwhelming. The constant hounding of fans and paparazzi, personal information being strewn across the media, and the continuous anxiety of having to be your best self can be too much for most folks. Just like regular people, celebrities often take to their social media accounts to express themselves and to rant or vent about the things they are going through.
Unfortunately, social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram aren’t always the best avenue for anyone to air their dirty laundry. Often times, vents and rants can lead to full-blown meltdowns. These celebrities totally lost it on social media.
In 2013, actress Amanda Bynes had a full-blown mental breakdown on Twitter. She began styling herself with multicolored hair, got cheek piercings, and she also began ranting and acting erratically. At one point, she said that she wanted rapper Drake to “murder [her] vagina.” She even reached out to then-President Barack Obama to help her get out of a drunk driving arrest.
Unfortunately, Bynes was suffering from a string of mental health issues. She was involuntarily admitted to a mental health facility in Oct. 2014, and thankfully she has been on the mend since.
