Amanda Bynes has some seriously loyal followers, as you can see by the Bynes Shrine (above) on an NYC street corner.

There are devoted fans… and then there are Amanda Bynes fans. 

The retired actress, who recently opened up exclusively to In Touch about her controversial behavior, now has a shrine devoted to her in New York City’s East Village on the corner of East Ninth and Stuyvesant. 
 
 
Among flowers and a large photograph of Amanda sit several candles that have the 27-year-old’s face Photoshopped over images of the Virgin Mary’s. 
 
And we can’t say we’re entirely surprised about it. 
 
The She’s the Man actress recently acquired over one million Twitter followers and has been back in the spotlight since debuting a completely new look earlier this year — and she certainly has no shortage of admirers. 
 
 
On April 30, one Twitter fan posted a photo of Amanda’s bra-clad upper body on a statue of the Virgin Mary, captioning it “My dear, there is nothing like being enshrined.” 
 
Two days before that, another fan photoshopped an image of Amanda’s face and put it over that of the Queen, writing: “i made this for you youre an insperation thank you and I love you QUEEN.” 
 
 
Also mentioned as a “hero,” “beautiful-eyed goddess” and “the light of my loins,” it’s safe to say things are picking up speed for the aspiring fashion designer, and her fans are as loyal as ever. 
 
If only Drake would follow suit.
