Danny Tamberelli: “Lindsay’s a hypocrite for criticizing Amanda Bynes”
Former Nickelodeon child star Danny Tamberelli — who starred on the show “All That” alongside Amanda Bynes — is coming to the troubled actress’ defense, saying that Lindsay Lohan has no right to criticize Amanda.
As previous reports have stated, 26-year-old Lindsay Lohan slammed Amanda Bynes on Twitter after the Nickelodeon star’s vehicle got impounded on Sunday. The “Liz & Dick” star wrote, “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?”
Although Lohan did not specifically name Amanda Bynes on her post, it was quite clear that she was referring to the “Hairspray” star, especially since Bynes has been the headline of various news outlet due to her DUI arrest and license suspension.
Media outlet TMZ spoke to Danny Tamberelli about his thoughts regarding Lohan’s remarks about Amanda Bynes. Tamberelli said, “Given her own history with the law, it’s absurd that [Lindsay] would be so quick to judge another young woman under this kind of public scrutiny.“
Danny Tamberelli went on, saying, “Nickelodeon was nothing short of amazing to work for and they had their watchful eye on us all. They took care of us and tried not to let us go down the wrong path.”
Danny Tamberelli added, he’s “very sorry to hear about Amanda’s recent trouble with the law” and “hopes she can find the support she needs to work through any issues that may be going on.”
Danny Tamberelli has since given up on Hollywood (for now) and is currently spending his time playing bass for his band, Jounce.
Danny Tamberelli played Jackie Radowski on the television series “The Baby-Sitters Club” shortly before more notably playing the role of Little Pete on the Nickelodeon television show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.” He also provided the voice for Arnold in “The Magic School Bus,” as well as appearing in the films “Igby Goes Down” and “The Mighty Ducks.” Danny Tamberelli is also prominent for his work on Nickelodeon’s “All That,” as well as “Figure It Out.” On “Figure It Out,” he is known for his famed “head flip,” where he would flip his head back after getting slimed to cover the audience in slime. He also guest starred, along with Michelle Trachtenberg, on an episode of “Space Cases” titled “All You Can Eaty.” He also appeared in various toy commercials in the 1980s and 1990s for products such as “Rattle Me Bones” from Tyco Games and Pirate Toys from Lego. Another was for Cinnamon Life in 1994. In 2006, he appeared in a commercial for Wendy’s fast food.
