Amanda Bynes did NOT rip celebs on Instagram ... it was an impostor all along ... and the fake account has been shut down.
An account called Amandabynesfashion has been populated with posts attacking various celebs ... accusing one celeb of having an STD and another of having a small penis.
A lawyer for one of the celebs who was attacked called Amanda's lawyer, and we're told her lawyer presented evidence Amanda was not doing the posting. The lawyer for the celeb -- armed with the evidence -- went to Instagram, which then shut down the account.
Amanda IS, however, going off on her Twitter account, but she's not attacking celebs ... her main target is her own family.

11/19/2014 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
At least one Bill Cosby rape claim is being shot down by the alleged victim -- his former 'Cosby Show co-star Raven Symoné says he NEVER touched her ... despite a story that's gone viral.
A parody website posted a story earlier this week claiming Raven was telling people Cosby had sexually assaulted her ... which is especially sick, considering she was only 3 years old when she debuted as Huxtable granddaughter, Olivia.
Raven finally responded Wednesday afternoon ... saying she was NOT taken advantage of by Cosby ... and ... "This is a truly disgusting rumor that I want no part of!"
In the Instagram post she added ... "Keep me out of this."

**WARNING -- SO. MUCH. BUTT**
Floyd Mayweather sure loves crack ... and he proved it by posting footage of a 10-on-1 twerk session in what appears to be his hotel room.
There is so much jigglin.

The very beginning of the footage shows Floyd laying face down on a massage table in his boxers ... enjoying the view.
No word if the boxer actually got a massage.

Pop rap duo Jack and Jack were at the center of an insane scene at LAX -- hundreds of their 6 million social media followers flocked to the airport -- but much of the crowd was really obsessed ... with their famous friend.
You've gotta see the J&J fans losing their minds -- tears were shed as they made their way through the crazed pack of tweener girls. But the most surprising part is a majority of the girls were screaming for the Jacks' BFF ... a dude named Matthew Espinosa.
Matt's pretty popular in his own right -- over 4 million followers -- but based on this video ... it looks like he's coming for Jack and Jack's crown.
For the older set, this is like Beatlemania ... for Pete Best (Google it, young people).

"Joe Dirt" and his glorious mullet are back ... and David Spade took a selfie to prove his classic 'do will be front and center for the new flick.
You may recall ... the 2001 film ended with Dirt's mullet being replaced with dreadlocks -- but it looks like that's all changed for the new movie set to debut next year on Crackle.
Spade captioned the pic, "Day 1. Let's get this s*** started! #imjoedirt #whatscrappenin."
Home is where you make it.

11/16/2014 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Timbaland clearly thinks Lifetime deserves every ounce of crap being flung their way for the Aaliyah biopic that premiered Saturday ... and during his attack on the network, no digital punches were pulled.
The rapper/producer went on a social media rampage last night urging people to boycott the "Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B"... using a slew of hilarious memes.
Once the movie was over -- Timbo had no problem gloating to fans who watched the flick anyway -- taunting them and the network with a funny video post.
Timbaland wasn't the only celebrity who had choice words for the movie ... DL Hughley also chimed in -- saying, "Aaliyah is the Soul Plane of Lifetime!"

If Kim Kardashian made the Internet explode with her ass photo ... Chelsea Handler just made the rubble bounce.
Chelsea posed sans oil, and as far as we can see it's not Photoshopped ... which makes it extremely impressive.
Handler is making her body parts a name for themselves ... she went to war with Instagram last month after they took down her topless photo mocking Vladimir Putin.
Did we say she has a nice ass?
Chelsea's going in on IG again -- she just REposted her topless Putin shot with a caption questioning why the app is cool with shots of Kim K's bare ass (and Chelsea's too) ... but not cool with her exposed boobs. She added, "I'm just so confused."

Mark Cuban Jury Duty
Reveals Jurors on Instagram
11/10/2014 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Mark Cuban wrapped up his jury duty by reaching a verdict in the one day trial ... and then shouting out his fellow jurors on Instagram.
As we told you ... Cuban was selected for a Dallas jury in a civil lawsuit over a car accident -- and amazingly, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks tells TMZ Sports he did NOT have a ton of influence over his fellow jurors.
Mark says they wanted him to be the foreman, but he turned it down. Ultimately, the jury ruled in favor of the defendant -- saying he was NOT negligent.
As soon as the trial was over ... Mark posted what looks like a pic of the jurors deliberating, with the caption -- "Verdict reached and we are dismissed. World's best jury :)" Important to note he didn't post the pic until AFTER the trial. Doing it before would've been a major no-no.
By the way ... Mark took home a whopping $6 for his service.
He called in to TMZ Hollywood Sports right after court. Make sure you check it out on Reelz at 8 PM ET ... 5 PM PT!

I Got My Pet Pig Hookup
From King of Fake Teeth
11/7/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Miley Cyrus's business deal with the king of fake buckteeth really helped her bring home the bacon -- as in her pet piglet Bubba Sue.
TMZ has learned the micro pig Miley's been showing off in pics since August ... was a gift from her business partners at Billy Bob Products -- the company that just started cranking out those ridiculously popular Miley Bob fake teeth for $11.99 a pop.
Billy Bob founder Jonah White tells us he and his wife reached out to Miley back in August ... after her dog Floyd died, and set up a backstage meeting in St. Louis. He says that's when they surprised her with Bubba Sue -- complete with a birth certificate.
Around the same time ... Jonah and Miley also hammered out their business deal. Sources close to the negotiations tell us Miley is getting a 50/50 split of the profits from her line of fake teeth.
Sweet deal, sweet pig.
In Lawsuit Over Alleged Instagram-Shaming
11/3/2014 7:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Shaquille O'Neal is finally fighting back in a lawsuit over allegations he cruelly mocked a man with a rare genetic disorder on Instagram ... saying it may have been rude, but it was NOT defamatory.
The man behind the lawsuit is Jahmel Binion -- who suffers from ectodermal dysplasia -- which causes abnormal hair growth, missing teeth and facial deformities.
Earlier this year, O'Neal had posted a selfie on Instagram with a side-by-side of Binion's face along with the caption, "Smile today." Binion wasn't happy about it.
Shaq apologized to Binion -- but Binion sued anyway ... claiming invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation and general negligence.
Now, Shaq has fired back in legal docs of his own filed in a federal court in Michigan -- claiming he couldn't have invaded Binion's privacy ... because Binion put the photo on social media in the first place and made it public.
Shaq also says Binion's allegations of defamation are also BS because he didn't alter the picture to say anything false about Jahmel.
In the docs, Shaq also says he does not have a legal duty to block his 8 million followers from commenting on the picture ... so if someone DID make a defamatory comment, Shaq shouldn't be held accountable.
Now, it's up to a judge to decide if the case against Shaq should go forward.
Stay tuned ...
