Believe it or not, the internet sees it all! The reach that social media allows celebrities also mean that their blunders online are sent directly to their millions of fans. That is why our dear celebrities have to be very careful before they open about anything on social media.
Although, there are several celebrities that endured major backlash through these years, thanks to their over-sharing!
Here is the list of some celebrity social media blunders
In April 2018, the “Royals” singer came under a wildfire when she posted a photo of a bathtub on her social media with Whitney Houston lyrics as the caption: “And iiii will always love you.” (The legendary singer died in February 2012 at the age of 48 after accidentally drowning in a bathtub.) Lorde quickly deleted the post and later apologized on her Instagram Story. She wrote “Extremely extremely poorly chosen quote. I’m so sorry for offending anyone – I hadn’t even put this together I was just excited to take a bath. I’m an idiot. Love Whitney forever and ever. Sorry again.”
In April 2014 screenshots of Franco’s Instagram messages with a 17-year-old girl named Lucy Corde started surfacing throughout the internet. In the messages, Franco asked Corde if he should “rent a room.” The under aged fan denied his invite by telling him that she’d do it next year after she turn 18. Franco got in huge trouble after the screenshots started to blow up. “I’m embarrassed. I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky,” he later explained during an appearance on an interview. “It’s the way that people meet each other today and I guess I’m still new to it. The problem with this is you don’t know who’s on the other end.”
Back in December 2011, the actor accidentally tweeted out his phone number. “310-954-7277 Call me bro. C,” he tweeted. Sheen later deleted the tweet after getting thousands of text messages and phone calls from fans. The Two And A Half Men alum later explained that he was actually attempting to message Justin Bieber.
In January 2016, the then 28-year old actor faced backlash when he posted about Martin Luther King Jr on MLK Day. “I’m grateful for a couple things today,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself. “Martin Luther King Jr & 10 million followers on IG.” His followers on Twitter and Instagram immediately responded with disgust. One summed up the situation in a post: ‘How did Zac Efron attempt to make MLK day about himself I am so baffled’. Zac later deleted and apologized for that “completely insensitive” tweet.
The self-proclaimed Lord accidentally copy-pasted instructions from an advertiser into the caption for a Bootea Instagram post in May 2016. “Here you go, at 4pm est, write the below. Caption: Keeping up with the summer workout routine with my morning @booteauk,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote alongside a photo of himself in the kitchen with the product. Scott later fixed the caption, when he started getting a lot of comments about the mistake.
In September 2014, Beyoncé suffered a Photoshop fail on Instagram when she attempted to make her thighs look slimmer. The only problem was, it looked like she was also trying to alter the staircase behind her.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star got schooled by Giorgio Armani’s camp on Twitter in June 2015 when she misspelled the designer’s first name. “Why did Georgio Armani discontinue my favorite foundation??? I’m on my last bottle & everyone I know uses this!!! Please make it again!” she tweeted. Armani’s camp replied: “@KimKardashian Dear Kim – let us know which one you need and we’ll send it to you. And Mr. Armani’s first name is Giorgio”. Kardashian blamed the spelling mistake on being “sleep deprived”.
In December 2014, the star accidentally shared a photo of her bare breasts when she posted a snapshot of her new Beats headphones on Instagram. In the now deleted snap, Gunvalson’s stomach and breasts could clearly be seen through the Beats’ package reflection. When asked about it, she explained “I’m a human being and we make mistakes. I wanted to shout out to Bravo for my Beats while blow drying my hair and getting ready for work. Clearly, I didn’t see the reflection when I posted the image on Instagram. I apologize to anyone that saw the picture. I am deeply embarrassed.”
In June 2016, the supermodel made a same flub as Scott Disick when she accidentally copy-pasted instructions for a sponsored ad on Instagram. She posted a shot of herself with a pair of Adidas shoes with the caption “Naomi, So nice to see you in good spirits!!! Could you put something like: Thanks to my friend @gary.aspden and all at adidas – loving these adidas 350 SPZL from the adidas Spezial range. @adidasoriginals”. She later edited the caption.
Gigi Hadid reportedly got banned from China when she was supposed to walk the runway for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai. The news came after that the supermodel appeared in an Instagram video back in February 2017 where she held up a biscuit shaped like a Buddha and imitated the religious figure by squinting her eyes. The clip, which was posted by her sister Bella Hadid, was later deleted after Chinese social media users started to call her racist.
This was our list of celebrities social media blunders. So we hope that just like our favorite celebrities even you guys got a lesson on what NOT to post on your social media.
It’s better to think before you post anything rather than regretting it later.
