The cryptic Amanda Bynes Twitter attack chronicles continue. This time the troubled former child star has lashed out at drag queen superstar RuPaul. Bynes dissed the Drag Race host and her own father on Twitter by saying, “My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous!”

But this latest online rant wasn’t as random as Bynes’ written attacks on Jay-Z, Rihanna or Perez Hilton. The ex-Nickelodeon star’s war of words with Ru all stemmed from a vicious Twitter attack she first unleashed on People Magazine, which included an anti-gay slur.

Bynes tweeted to the writers of the celebrity magazine, “Um, @Peoplemag Hello? I’m not lost and alone! What the f * ** are you talking about? Follow me on twitter you f******,” she wrote via DListed. The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before RuPaul got wind of it.

In a response, RuPaul tweeted, “Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS an outward projection of a person’s own poisonous self-loathing@Amanda Bynes.” He then humorously added, “I’m a man, duh!”

Bynes is extremely lucky that Ru took the high road. He could have easily shut her down if he really wanted to.

Child reality star Honey Boo Boo’s celebrity is red hot, so hot that RuPaul wants to recruit the pint-size country girl to sing on his duets album.

“I’m doing a duet record and I’m here to ask Honey Boo Boo Child to be my duet partner!” RuPaul told E! “I love anybody who dances to the beat of a different drummer.”

For those unfamiliar, Honey Boo Hoo is an alum of the hit reality series Toddlers & Tiaras and the star of own reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Both shows have been blasted by critics and concerned adults for their exploitation of children by fame-seeking parents (and ratings-hungry networks)…

We’ll see if Ru and Honey will make be a perfect combo.

So That Makes LL Gay?

It shouldn’t be surprising to anyone that an oiled up muscle man gets a lot of attention from both women and men. On the other hand, rappers welcome homosexuals almost as nicely as Klan members would India.Arie at a rally. 

That being said, it’s surprising to see LL Cool J respond so calmly (re: without uttering a slur) to the paps asking him, “If you get hit on by a gay guy, does that change your nickname?”

He said: “No, just expands your options. Decisions, decisions…” 

That’s a nice response specially when you consider that the constant lick-lipper has been branded homophobic in the past by RuPaul.

As stupid as that question was LL handled it well – and now he’s being punished for it. TMZ has a headline up asking if he’s gay. I don’t think so, but if did have a secret boyfriend, can’t we just let his wife deal with that and see that a non homophobic response from a rapper doesn’t go unnoticed?

If we automatically assume he’s gay for brushing off a loaded question, won’t that incite the fear and ignorance LL may only now being getting over?

This is why some straight men are reluctant to say anything remotely tolerant of gays. Isn’t that right, Kanye
