Amanda Bynes says she was “joking” when she fantasized about murdering her parents in a disturbing rant recorded by friends and posted at the urging of Bynes’ concerned loved ones. In a series of tweets on Saturday, Bynes explained that she was just kidding when she went into graphic detail about thoughts of slitting her dad’s throat and her mom’s wrists.

The troubled former actress tweeted, “By the way – i was obviously joking about hurting my family – i straight up don’t believe in harming a soul.” Bynes went on to explain, “I said what I said in jest & if you don’t understand that then know I’m in therapy to talk about my dad issues and that will solve my concerns with ppl invading my private life.”

She then used a strange comparison to make her point, referencing her infamous flirtation with Drake. “When I said I want @drake to murder my vagina did anyone think I was asking him to actually murder my vagina… I think not,” declared Bynes. She added, “So take what I say lightly because I am the nicest girl.” Gossip Cop continues to hope Bynes will receive real, sustained psychiatric help. We will have updates.
