Being a celebrity is often associated with being rich, privileged and glamorous. That being said, celebrities are constantly under the harsh spotlight. Their every move is reported on and scrutinized in great detail. Celebrities will often find themselves being criticized on anything from their talent to how they look on their day off. It comes with the territory, and celebrities must do their best to develop a thick skin. It’s very common for famous people to be the butt of a comedian’s joke, so being able to take a joke is serious business. The more the celebrity is in the news and tabloids, the more jokes might come their way. No press is bad press, all press is beneficial.
Comedy is subjective and sometimes what one person might find funny, another person can find horribly offensive, and in this day and age that happens often. Some jokes can be cruel and mean but they can still be hilarious and most likely aren’t meant to be malicious. However, there are the times when a celebrity can dish it out but can’t take it. There have been a few celebrities who have been on the receiving end of a (hilarious) joke and they just can’t handle it. They get upset and sometimes respond with a harsh insult or they threaten to sue. In most cases the situation will become even bigger and draw more attention to the joke. Nobody wants to be the butt of the joke, but getting angry might not be the best course of action. Here is a look at 11 Celebrities Who Can’t Take A Joke.
11 Charlie Sheen
10 Steven Seagal
9 Jon Stewart
8 Sean Penn
7 Tim Burton
4 Kim Kardashian
3 Donald Trump
2 Kanye West
1 Donald Trump… Again
Donald Trump has so much difficulty with jokes about him that he deserves two entries, which he might take as a compliment. He has had many famous feuds with comics that mocked him or joked about him, such as Jon Stewart, Bill Maher and John Oliver. However, there is one feud in particular that Trump focused all of his attention on. Trump had a very public feud with comedian Rosie O’Donnell, after she made a joke at his expense on The View. Trump had decided not to fire Miss USA Tara Conner because of underage drinking and other indiscretions. Rosie did a hilarious impression that received huge laughs. She went on to say that he had gone bankrupt, was not a self-made man and had multiple divorces. Trump just laughed it off… of course, he didn’t. Trump responded with harsh insults calling her fat, ugly and a failure. The feud has continued over the years and proves each time that Trump just can’t take a joke. Trump can dish it out but clearly doesn't like when he's the butt of the joke.
