On Tuesday, former Amanda Show actress Amanda Bynes — who notably had a bizarre social media presence in the past — announced that she started an official Instagram page in a selfie.
The actress-turned-fashion-designer announced the new official Instagram account on her official Twitter page on Tuesday afternoon.
Bynes can be seen flashing a pouty look at a mirror while holding her Samsung Galaxy Note 9 smartphone, revealing vibrant pink hair and a shiny round septum piercing in her nose.
The 33-year-old, who graduated from fashion school earlier this year, can also be seen donning a long-sleeved white t-shirt and a pink necklace that almost perfectly matches the shade of the long-time blond’s new hair color.
Fans of the former child star seemed to be elated to welcome Bynes to the photo-sharing platform.
“WE DON’T DESERVE THIS!!!” one user commented.
“Yes!” another fan wrote excitedly. “So happy to see this!”
The Easy A actress’ move to Instagram might come as a surprise to some, as Bynes has seemed to shy away from social media platforms following her public meltdown on Twitter several years ago.
According to an article from Complex in 2013 that documented the former child star’s social media behavior, Bynes exhibited a variety of strange behaviors online that seemed to begin with a photo of a new piercing she posted to Twitter in March of 2013. Later that month, the actress shocked fans when she posted graphic tweets about her thirst for recording artist Drake.
Bynes also notably lashed out at the media for covering her strange behavior. On one occasion, Bynes even demanded that media sources writing about her should only use photos retrieved from her Twitter account. As Complex noted in 2013, Bynes seemingly gave the media many photos to choose from, as she regularly sent out selfies during her social media frenzy.

Bynes was enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising since 2014. In June, she made a re-appearance on Twitter for the first time in a year when she shared a photo of herself, letting her fans know that she had officially graduated from the Los Angeles fashion school, as The Inquisitr previously reported.
According to the previous report from The Inquisitr, Bynes previously scrubbed her Twitter account clean — except for a photo of herself on the cover of Paper Magazine from last year. In an interview with the magazine, Bynes said she started heavy drug use following the filming of Easy A in 2010.
In the interview, Bynes said that she was interested in getting back into the acting game before she put her fashion degree to use.
