Los Angeles:Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has clarified that she was kidding about her desire to kill her family.
Bynes, 28, was recently caught on tape ranting about murdering her parents, reported TMZ.
"I was obviously joking about hurting my family, I straight up don't believe in harming a soul. I said what I said in jest & if you don't understand that then know I'm in therapy to talk about my dad issues and that will solve my concerns with people invading my private life.
"I am one of the most thoughtful girls you'll ever meet so don't read into what I joke about," she tweeted.
Bynes' parents were awarded a temporary conservatorship over the actress after her erratic behaviour spiralled out of control following her DUI arrest earlier this year.
