10 Celebs Who Were Caught Texting Shocking Messages

If you're going to do it, then do it right. Sexting can be great fun, and it's probably one of the main reasons we're glad to live in a world with unlimited free texting. But it definitely has the potential to go so wrong, so fast. Anybody that ever accidentally sexted a family member or a friend can attest to that – or worse, one with a picture attached.

Double-check the recipient before you click send. Make sure the person you're talking to isn't going to rat you out in public – and definitely confirm the age of the person you're talking to before you start.

Fortunately, it's not just everyday people who screw this up. Celebrities suck at it too. Here are some high-profile incidents of failed sexting to make you feel better about your own failures. Don't let it scare you off if you've never gone wrong yet. Take these examples as cases of what not to do, and learn from their pain – or in some cases, just wince. You'll notice that a lot of them involve infidelity, so… if you're thinking that sexting would be an easy way to get a little something outside of your relationship?

You're wrong. You'll be caught, and you're a jerk. Don't do it.

Of course Kanye West has a sexting scandal. We'd be more worried if he hadn't.

2 James Franco

1 Anthony Weiner

This is probably the most well-known story on the list, but sorry, it just hasn't been said enough. The guy's name is Anthony Weiner, and he got caught sending a d--k pic. You don't have to be 10 years old to appreciate that. And in case that doesn't tickle your funny bone, let's remind ourselves that Weiner was actually texting under an alias. That alias was Carlos Danger.

You're welcome.

This guy has actually been hit by sexting scandals twice – once in 2011, and once in 2013. Both times, he was caught sending pictures of himself to women outside of his marriage. It's not all hilarious, though; one woman who claimed to have had sexual online contact with Weiner was only 17 at the time. If that's the case, he's clearly earned his spot as a grade-A sleazebag, as well as the top spot in this list.
