Bynes retracts comments made on Twitter accusing her father of physical and mental abuse after her mother makes a statement denying the accusations. Bynes blames the accusations on a microchip in her brain. Bynes’ mother’s statement:
I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years. Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda’s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.
My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me.
