Making Fun of a Mentally Ill Person Just Isn't OK No Matter How Catchy the Tune

9/13/2013 9:55 AM PDT, by


Warning: Video is NSFW for explicit language, but the tune is familiar, so your boss might let it slide.

So here's a few former "RuPaul's Drag Race" contestants, and essentially, they made a "Blurred Lines" parody spoofing Amanda Bynes' mental illness and subsequent 5150 psychiatric hold. 

While the Queens look frigging fabulous -- because come on; they're even better looking than the chicks in the original "Blurred Lines" video -- that doesn't make it OK to parody somebody for their mental illness whilst dancing around in straitjacket. Even though they sang, "We love you Blurred Bynes," that doesn't make it all right to make a mockery of something Amanda, God-willing, is going to look back on in 10 years or so and say, "Man, how embarrassing -- why would you even do that to me?"

Not cool, guys.

They're not mocking her mental illness. They're mocking her drug use...

If ole Blurred Bynes actually had a mental illness brought on by say, mental issues, then yeah, I'd be right there agreeing with you. Her's however were brought on by massive drug abuse and I'm perfectly good with pointing that ish out!

If you disagree with it why would you re-post it? They are looking for publicity and you just gave it to them.

Normally, I would find these random videos quite hilarious, but making fun of someone who is obviously mentally ill and suffering from schizophrenia is not funny. It's tasteless. One of the many things people who suffer from mental illness do is take drugs, drink alcohol and have promiscuous sex. It's not funny at all. #FAIL

Sarah Taylor - BOO! This was a parody and an extremely funny one at that.

When did a tabloid become moral police? Half of the articles you all write about Amanda are making fun of her.

WOW!!!!! I LOVE IT!! What a great video. Yes, they are poking at her a little, so the F what. If you really listen to them, (and by the way, they're fab-u-lous)they were kinda-sorta supporting her. Anyway, Love Amanda, And would LOVE to see MORE from these lovely queens. And, not that it matters, i am straight, but, i appreciate talent, and beauty of ALL kinds. keep it'up'ladies.
thank you for a wonderful vid that I am going to share as much as possible. Open Your Minds. Welcome to the 21st century!
Clown Love!!!!
