We love celebrities and we love fights, so it’s only natural that celebrities fighting is the greatest thing we’d want to witness in person. We’ve seen the best of friends become worst enemies. We’ve also seen feuds that have lasted for ages. We love them all, but there’s something particularly beautiful about feuds that showcase stupidity. When people are raging, they often reveal their least desirable qualities. We tend to forget that celebs are normal people, so when they get angry and display the ugliness of their humanity or their lack of intelligence, it can be a bit of a shock for us as onlookers. It’s thrilling, but it’s still a shock.
When it comes to the general public, we tend to celebrate stupidity. At the very least, we’re interested in celebrity stupidity. There are many possible reasons for this, but it’s likely due to a feeling of being more evolved than these stupid celebs. It’s like we’re at a zoo and the celebs are the exhibit, combined with the fact that stupidity is both unpredictable and beautiful. It’s real and we crave reality. With this in mind, we set out to collect the best celebrity beefs, the ones that cause us to scratch our heads or laugh out loud. This isn’t about ridiculing celebrities for humiliating themselves in front of the world. Rather, it’s more about making us feel better about ourselves by highlighting the stupidity in others. This is a powerful, age-old technique for boosting confidence. Let’s get to making you feel better about yourself. Here are 15 Of Hollywood’s Stupidest Celebrity Feuds.
15. Amanda Bynes And Rihanna
You had to know Amanda Bynes was going to make this list with her wild and unpredictable Twitter usage. Illness aside, there were too many examples to avoid them all, so we just grabbed the best of the bunch—her short exchange with Rihanna. One day, seemingly out of the blue, Bynes Tweeted, “@rihanna you look so ugly tryin to be white.” The former Disney star followed that up with, “Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough.” Rihanna then responded with a pretty spot-on burn, “Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?” To this, Bynes just got desperate, “Unlike ur fugly faced self I don’t do drugs! U need the intervention dog! I met ur ugly face in person! U aren’t pretty u know it!” Later, Bynes claimed that this battle was photoshopped and that she never sent those tweets. She did though. We saw them.
14. Chloe Grace Moretz And Kim Kardashian
It was a little out of left field when Chloe Grace Moretz took to Twitter to criticize Kim Kardashian for posting nude photos, something Kim does all the time. Moretz took issue because of all the children that follow Kim. “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than our bodies,” the young actress wrote. To this, Kardashian turned the criticism into a popularity contest, a classic manoeuvre in the dance of life. Kardashian called on her followers to bully Moretz, “let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo.” Overall, it was a weird feud because of the randomness of the parties involved. Still, does Kim actually not know who Grace Moretz is? She’s the one who’s famous for a profession.
13. Vivica A. Fox And 50 Cent
On the talk show Watch What Happens Live, Vivica A. Fox was asked about her upcoming appearance on Empire and what she thought about her ex-boyfriend, 50 Cent, criticizing the show and its focus on “gay stuff” (though it was later shown that 50 never actually said this). Fox responded by saying, “First of all, you know, the pot calling the kettle black is all I’m saying.” She was asked to clarify and said, “he just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.” Fox also pointed to a cover photo from XXL that featured 50 with his arm around Soulja Boy, insinuating that 50 was gay. 50 responded even revving it up a few notches, posting some unflattering pictures of the actress and saying that she only thought he was gay because of some things that went down between the two of them between the sheets. Use your imagination.
12. Don Lemon And Jonah Hill
Don Lemon is a CNN anchor who took to Twitter to try and embarrass Jonah Hill but ended up humiliating himself. He started by writing, “Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn’t know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.” He also called Hill a tool in another Tweet. First of all, why would you say hi to Jonah Hill if you didn’t know his name? Also, stop acting like you don’t know him. You look foolish. Hill responded, writing, “@DonLemonCNN I said hi what do you want me to do move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn’t realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace.” After, Hill wrote, “@DonLemonCNN i walked out of the restroom and found you waiting for me. Shook hands, said hi and was on my way. Sorry if you found that rude.” Now, Lemon later said that he was simply waiting for Hill to say, “I like you, I think you’re funny.” But wait, didn’t you have to ask the bellman what Hill’s name was? Now you like him? Seems like Lemon was confused. Maybe let people go to the washroom in peace and you won’t be treated rudely.
11. Kim Kardashian And Teen Mom
When Kim Kardashian is working super hard, she’s using Twitter to make the world a better place. One of her latest efforts was to shame Teen Mom for glamorizing teen pregnancy, at least that’s how she sees it. “It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls…but girls, these are not people you should idolise!” Kim wrote. A number of Teen Mom participants answered back and pointed out the hypocrisy of what the Kardashian had written. Amber Portwood responded with, “She made a s*x tape when she was younger and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mom?” She also added, “[Teen Mom] doesn’t glamorise anything. It shows the heartache we’ve all gone through.” What positive message is it that the Kardashian show sends exactly? Keep being the positive role model you are Kim.
10. Soulja Boy And Chris Brown
Soulja Boy and Chris Brown are two of the most unloved musicians in the industry. Since nobody likes them, it makes sense that they don’t like each other. After a small Twitter war and some videos with numerous threats for each other, the two decided to set up a fight. What started as threats of violence turned to death threats, which then turned to a boxing match. 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Promotions got involved and a match was set up. Both parties were interested and the people got hyped. Then it spiraled out of control. Chris Brown and Soulja Boy got trainers, first Adrien Broner and Floyd Mayweather and then Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. The locations moved and people started making diss tracks about the bout. Then, it all ended. Apparently, Chris Brown refused to sign up for the fight because there were too many middle men getting involved. He flipped it to sound like he didn’t want a planned boxing match, that he just wanted to run up on Soulja Boy. Who knows? Honestly, who cares? It was just funny to watch these two go at each other.
9. Charlie Sheen And Chuck Lorre
The Charlie Sheen and producer Chuck Lorre feud is well-documented but we can’t ignore it. The fight all began after Sheen was checked in the hospital following a partying binge that lasted too long and went too hard. Filming for Two and a Half Men was forced to pause while Sheen recovered. This bothered Lorre, which bothered Sheen. Charlie then did the now-famous radio interview, the one with all the crazy quotes. In addition to slamming plenty of other people in his life, Sheen said of Lorre, “I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that this un-evolved mind cannot process… I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade, I don’t know, effortlessly and magically converted your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write.” Obviously, these are the PG things he said. Things escalated to extreme levels. Sheen was written off the show, Lorre used the entire series’ finale to mock and ridicule the show’s former star. In the end, both men ended up looking like children.
8. John Cleese And Piers Morgan
Piers Morgan is a strange man. There aren’t many people who enjoy him for anything more than the controversy he stirs up, yet he’s done very well for himself. In an article for Daily Mail, Morgan told of an encounter he had with comedian John Cleese at a restaurant. He wrote that “for one tiny nanosecond, our eyes locked in mutual shock, then equally mutual withering contempt. For the next two hours, we avoided all form of contact – physical, verbal, visual. It was magnificently British.” After posting this, Cleese responded on Twitter by simply saying, “Piers Morgan writes that I didn’t recognise him in a restaurant in New York. I did. I just didn’t want to speak to someone I truly detest.” He then added, “Anyway, I thought he was in jail after admitting he’d authorised phone-hacking at the Daily Mirror. Still, our British legal system works slowly.” Morgan might have responded to this but we didn’t care to look it up.
7. 50 Cent And Slow
Maybe you don’t know about Slow or Trav or any of the lesser-known celebs involved in the 50 Cent beef of 2014, but it was pretty significant at the time. Slow was a guy who grew up with 50 and his crew and ended up making a clothing line with another guy, calling it SlowBucks. At some point, Trav, another rapper who was part of this crew, got into it with 50 on Twitter. Trav Tweeted for 50 to turn on his location the next time he tweets, as if he wanted to fight. Not long after, a video was released from a DJ conference in Atlanta, where 50 and his goons were on stage and Meek Mill came up to join them. Behind Meek was Trav, who 50 refused to let on stage. Some pushing broke out, but it subsided. Trav then made a diss track called “celebrate” and Slow showed up in the video. Slow also took a picture with 50’s estranged son and posted it on Instagram. 50 even commented on the picture saying, “this picture was a bad idea.” All of this drama led up to SummerJam. Right before the show, 50 was on Hot 97 with Funkmaster Flex and spoke on this feud, declaring that he wasn’t feeling SlowBucks. Then, on the 1st of June in 2014, at 50’s SummerJam show, for some insane reason, as 50 performed with an entire stage full of groupies and goons, Slow felt that he was welcome. He wasn’t. There, in front of 70,000 people and caught on video, Slow was pushed down and robbed of his chains.
6. Brett Ratner And Olivia Munn
Olivia Munn might be best known for playing Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse these days, but she made a name for herself by co-hosting Attack of the Show. It was actually on this show that Brett Ratner, director of the Rush Hour films and X-Men: The Last Stand, responded to a passage in Munn’s book, Suck It, Wonder Woman, that was apparently about him. In the book, the former host of Attack of the Show wrote some unsavory things about an anonymous director, recalling the first time they met. Though she never mentioned Ratner by name, she described him as a fat slob of a director and told a story of meeting him in his trailer. “I noticed what was either a tiny gnarled doggie toy or this adult man’s p*nis being stroked by his own stubby hand,” she wrote. “He was mast*rbating. Right there. With shrimp in one hand. And me standing in front of him. Mast*rbating. Mast*r-bating. I’m not even kidding.” Later, Ratner declared that she was referring to him in this passage, claiming, “I used to date Olivia Munn, I’ll be honest with everyone here. But when she was ‘Lisa’. She wasn’t Asian back then… She was hanging out on my set of After the Sunset, I banged her a few times, but I forgot her. Because she changed her name. I didn’t know it was the same person and so when she auditioned for me for a TV show, I forgot her, she got pissed off, and so she made up all these stories about me eating shrimp and m*sturbating in my trailer.” Weird!
5. Wiz Khalifa And Kanye
In January 2016, Wiz Khalifa posted the following on Twitter, “Hit this kk and become yourself.” Now KK stands for Khalifa Kush, the rapper’s own strain of marijuana, but Kanye West didn’t know this. You see, Kanye lives in a world where everything that anyone says is probably about him. So, naturally, Kanye took this Tweet to be an insult about his wife, Kim Kardashian (KK). What followed was an onslaught of Tweets from the confused toddler. It started with the hilariously humble Tweet, “Oh n***as must think I’m not petty cause I’m the best that’s ever made music.” He then Tweeted about 25 more times in quick succession telling Wiz how he owned his child, started his style and is the only reason Khalifa is making music. In short, Kanye is the cause of all rap, fashion, and child birth. Eventually, Kanye learned that KK was weed. He took down his Tweets saying it’s all positivity, even when there had been 20+ insults that were sent. Kanye’s brain works in mysterious ways.
4. Dwayne Johnson And Vin Diesel
In the days following the wrap of shooting for Fast 8, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to slam his male co-stars. After a nice compliment for his female co-stars, Johnson wrote, “My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t. The ones that don’t are too chicken sh*t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a*ses. When you watch this movie next April and it seems like I’m not acting in some of these scenes and my blood is legit boiling – you’re right.” Vin Diesel responded not long after, saying that he will tell “everything” soon. If this sounds like a publicity stunt, you’re probably right. It does seem a little fishy that Universal swept in right away and announced the signing of both these male stars for Fast and the Furious 9 film. The apparent feud caused a media frenzy, so their plan worked.
3. Shia LaBeouf And Frankie Muniz
In 2003, Shia LaBeouf suggested in an interview that Frankie Muniz was once mean to him. At that time, Muniz was a huge star and LaBeouf was blowing up. Their careers seemed to be going in different directions and LaBeouf sensed this saying, ”I used to see [Muniz] at premieres and stuff and it would always be like he was looking down on me. And then it turned into we’re equal, and then it turned into ‘Oh Frankie? I know that guy.”’ Then, more than a decade later, LaBeouf reengaged Muniz during a radio interview, saying of his six number one movies in a row, “you could have put Frankie Muniz into any the movies I’ve been in and those movies would have still been No. 1.” When he was asked if he was worried Muniz might be mad at him for using the former actor as an example, LaBeouf said, “I don’t go to many parties and I don’t really hang out in Frank Muniz-type zones.” Hilariously, Muniz responded on Twitter, writing, “Dear Shia Labeouf. It’s getting creepy the fact that you can’t stop talking about me. It’s been 12 years now. I don’t know you. Thanks.”
2. B.o.B And Neil deGrasse Tyson
B.o.B is a rapper who chose to embarrass himself on Twitter by revealing that he doesn’t believe that the Earth is a sphere. In a series of Tweets, Bobby boy talked about how the Earth is flat and people who believe otherwise are sheep. Take this early Tweet as an example: “No matter how high in elevation you are… the horizon is always eye level … sorry cadets… I didn’t wanna believe it either.” It wasn’t long before well-known physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson responded, even appearing on The Nightly Show to educate the rapper with a rap of his own. It was awkward but endearing. In the end, Tyson said that B.o.B had the right to think what he wants. He did, however, add, “If you want to think the world is flat, go right ahead. But if you think the world is flat and you have influence over others, as with successful rappers, or even presidential candidates, then being wrong becomes being harmful to the health, the wealth and the security of our citizenry.”
1. Donald Trump And Rosie O’Donnell
The feud between Rosie O’Donnell and Donald Trump is one of the longer and more hilarious feuds going. Back in 2006, O’Donnell criticized Trump on The View and Trump responded, saying he was going to sue Rosie. He then called her fat and a loser. Five years later, Trump responded to news of Rosie getting married, Tweeting, “I feel sorry for Rosie’s new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie—a true loser.” In the years that followed, the Donald would bring up Rosie’s name in random Tweets, making fun of her whenever he could. No stage was sacred. During the Republican presidential primary debate, in front of the world, Trump didn’t forget his old pal. When he was asked if it was okay to use terms like “fat pigs,” “dogs,” “slobs,” and “disgusting animals” to describe women as he has done in the past, Trump said, “only Rosie O’Donnell.” This got some hearty laughter and applause from the crowd.
