Ashley Benson received a lot of heat on Thursday, and it wasn’t because of the latest drama that her “Pretty Little Liars” character got into. The actress took to her Instagram and Twitter to share a photo of her imitating troubled starlet Amanda Bynes.

“Doing my Amanda Bynes look this afternoon,” she posted along with the following photo.

Benson’s post comes a couple days after Bynes was hospitalized on a 5150 hold for starting a small fire at a random Thousand Oaks, Calif., home. A 5150 hold is an involuntary hold. The California Welfare and Institutions Code states that a peace officer can confine a person exhibiting behavior that is the “result of a mental disorder, a danger to others or to himself or herself or gravely disabled.” Other celebrities taken under a 5150 hold include Britney Spears and Paris Jackson.

After sparking the controversy over mocking her hospitalized peer, Benson took to her Twitter to post an apology:
