Poor bun - it's understandable why she would be like that if she was neglected.
If there's one thing I've learned about bunnies, it's that you have to do things on their terms. If you just go and pick her up or try to pet her and she doesn't want that, then she'll just act more aggressive.
Is she fixed? I assume she probably is, but if not you should looking into it, sometimes they calm down a little after being fixed.
What I would do then is start to approach her on her terms - ignore her when she's being aggressive or ignoring you. If she comes up to you, offer her treats only at first and maybe talk to her a little - don't try to touch her yet. She'll learn that going up to you is a good thing so she should start to come up to you more. After awhile, still give her treats, but also try to gently pet the top of her head. If she acts aggressive or runs away, go back to just the treats. Slowly she should start coming up to you more and being less afraid. Eventually you should be able to stop giving treats everytime and just pet her. Never chase her around to try to pick her up or pet her - then she associate you with getting chased and she won't enjoy your attention. The key is to make her have to come to you.
Remember to only use healthy treats! Pieces of fruits or veggies should work, or maybe something like paypa tablets?
