10 Cringiest Celeb Social Media Fails
Just like normal people, celebrities sometimes post cringeworthy things that probably should have just stayed private. Here are some of Hollywood’s biggest social media fails ever:
Madonna uses a racial slur
When Madonna posted a picture of her son Rocco Ritchie on Instagram, most people thought that her support of him was sweet until they scrolled down and read the hashtags. In an attempt to cheer on her son’s budding boxing career, she wrote, “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn***a”. People immediately called her out for her use of a racial slur in a hashtag, but instead of apologizing, she posted a message telling all the ‘haters’ to, “get off my d**k.”
Kim Kardashian posts stock photo of Thailand
After a family trip to Thailand, Kim Kardashian tried to keep the memories going by posting a photo on Instagram. The only thing was, she pulled the photo off the internet — she didn’t take it herself. A ton of people noticed, and called her out for being a fraud. She took to Instagram a few days later to rebut naysayers, insisting that she never actually claimed to have taken the picture. I guess she forgot how Instagram usually works?

Charlie Sheen Tweets out his phone number
It’s easy to get confused on social media — especially when you’re on as many drugs as Charlie Sheen. In 2011, Charlie Sheen’s real phone number went viral after he posted it publicly on Twitter. Apparently, he had been trying to send it to Justin Bieber privately. To his credit, Sheen gamely played along and answered a couple hundred phone calls and messages from eager fans before he had his number changed.
