There are certain things celebrities shouldn't joke about on Twitter. One is pregnancy (I'm looking at you, Lindsay Lohan) and another is having an eating disorder.

But Amanda Bynes went there late Thursday, telling her 600,000-plus followers, "I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin."

After rereading the tweet, I'm nearly sure she's kidding (as in, oh, you're saying you have an overeating disorder so it's hard to stay thin -- hardy har-har). But since the 5-foot-8 actress recently told US Weekly her goal weight is 100 pounds, it's indicative of an increasingly unhealthy body image.

The self-described "retired" 27-year-old also continued her war on the tabloids, writing again Friday she plans to sue "certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness!" and advised media to "only use photos from my twitter when writing an article about me."

Duly noted, Bynes.

What do you think? Does Amanda Bynes have an unhealthy body image?
