Amanda Bynes (Twitter)

Every day it seems another celeb finds themselves in a Twitter war of words with Amanda Bynes.

And at this point, it's not funny anymore. Either someone has hacked and taken control of Bynes's Twitter account, or we're looking at a person who's experiencing a momentary lapse of sanity. Model Chrissy Teigen agrees and on Tuesday decided to weigh in on the situation on Twitter.

As a result, Teigen — who is engaged to singer John Legend — had to bear the brunt of Bynes's digital wrath. After tweeting that she found it "unsettling" that Bynes had people supporting her erratic behavior and activity, Bynes fired back: "Ur not a pretty model compared to me. I signed to Ford models @ age 13. I don't look up to u beauty wise. I'm far prettier than u! I'm offended that you're saying I have a mental illness when I show no sign of it, but thankfully not one man that wants me wants you and you are an old ugly model compared to me! You look 45! You're not pretty so I'm not intimidated by you! I think you're jealous that you're just an ugly model whos career is uninspiring! I don't respect you! You're no beauty queen! I'm a beauty queen."

Teigen replied:

Bynes's rambling retorts directed towards anyone who dares to chime on the former actress's state of being often focus on people being "ugly." Similar "ur ugly" comments have been lobbed at Rihanna, Lance Bass, and Perez Hilton to name a few.

"Omg! Insider's" Christina McLarty spoke Thursday with Teigen who elaborated on her exchange with Bynes.

"The last tweet you said to Amanda was, 'I moved on to ham Amanda, keep up,' after she said the most bizarre rant about you. Do you have fun with these rants?" McLarty asked.

"I mean my heart kind of stops a little bit and you're like, 'Oh my god, how do I respond to this? What do you do?' Teigen revealed.

"Well, remember, she was a Ford model at 13," McLarty noted.

"So to speak, so to speak," Teigen joked. "I'm very outspoken. I really, I'll say anything to anybody. But I mean, with her it's been very different for me. For the past few months I've been offering nothing but support and telling people to lay off and that this is obviously wrong, there's a problem here. And so when I said this, I didn't think it was anything, whatever the hell I got back."

When McLarty reminded her that she's in good company, with Rihanna among the celebs Bynes has gone after thus far, the model laughed, "I know! Jenny McCarthy, Rihanna!"

On a serious note, Teigen added, "I still do feel, it's honestly still such a terrible situation. I laugh at a lot of s--t but that is a little difficult, it's a little too much now. … It is hard in under 140 characters to be eloquent and to be able to explain your position a lot so I get a little too passionate. I'll say this: I'll fire off something that I didn't explain well and sometimes it's my own fault."
