Ever hear that old adage about “the blind leading the blind?” That’s kind of what Marshall Henderson helping Amanda Bynes would be like.
In light of Bynes’ recent run-ins with New York Police, Ole Miss’ resident sharpshooter tweeted out a semi-supportive but 100 percent joking tweet about the wayward young actress.
where is amanda bynes?!? i need to holla at her, help her get her shiz together hehe— marshall henderson (@NativeFlash22) May 28, 2013
For the uninitiated, Bynes is a former child actress and current car wreck of a human being. She was once everyone’s favorite goofy Nickelodeon star but has since devolved into a human BP oil spill of regrettable decisions and groin-slap allegations.
It’s nice that Henderson wants to “help her get her shiz together,” but no, Marshall, you don’t want to tangle with this chupacabra.
After his Bynes tweet, Henderson wrote another tweet talking about his community volunteer work.
and i bet ive done more community service voluntarily than any other "star athlete" ... dont talk when you dont know— marshall henderson (@NativeFlash22) May 29, 2013
Which some were quick to point out might’ve been less than voluntary.
@NativeFlash22 it doesn't count if it's court ordered.— Dylan Ettinger (@DylanEttinger) May 29, 2013
Henderson laughed it off, apparently admitting it wasn’t the most voluntary of community service but that it was behind him.
hahaha court ordered .... so 2 years ago, the time is now and work for the future , one day at a time #U.O.E.N.O— marshall henderson (@NativeFlash22) May 29, 2013
Granted, the Ole Miss sharpshooter has been working on retooling his controversial image in the offseason by keeping his nose clean (no pun intended) and giving his time to charitable projects like Relay 4 Life, but he’s still too deep in the hole to start mentoring other people with behavioral issues.
A scant month or so ago, Henderson himself was getting pong-bombed after the SEC tournament and flipping off fans at the NCAA tournament. I believe that’s within the “too soon” statutes of limitations for counseling others on their life problems.
With that being said, Henderson does seem to be making strides toward reining in his formerly deviant behavior. The last thing he needs is to build a bridge to Bynes.
We don’t need another Bonnie and Clyde duo.
