In a series of tweets today, Amanda Bynes hurled accusations at her father, saying that he was "verbally and physically" abusive towards her when she was a child. The rant came just as TMZ reported that Bynes fled New York City when she heard that her parents were heading to there to try to get her into a mental health facility.
