That’s certainly one way to look at it.

Actress Amanda Bynes seems to be locked in a very troubling — and very publicdownward spiral, and Courtney Love doesn’t like what she sees. Last night, Love, no stranger to drug issues and erratic behavior herself, urged Bynes to “pull it together”:

The irony of Love’s advice wasn’t lost on most:

And many couldn’t help but snicker:

Bynes, for her part, responded to Love with derision:

This isn’t the first time she’s lashed out at someone for showing concern. Earlier this month, she told Jenny McCarthy to “shut the f*ck up” after McCarthy tweeted that she hoped Bynes would get help.

While it’s true that Love is not exactly what you’d call a role model or traditional voice of reason, in this particular instance, she’s onto something.
