Social media allows stars to express their innermost thoughts in a way that will instantly reach fans. Unfortunately, some celebs do not think before they tweet. How much damage can you do to a career in 140 characters or less?
Which 14 tweeting celebs are walking Hollywood PR nightmares?
14 50 Cent
13 Dean McDermott
12 Kenneth Cole
Responding to news of the Syrian crisis, Kenneth Cole reminded everyone of what was really most important: footwear. The designer insensitively tweeted, “Boots on the ground' or not, let's not forget about sandals, pumps and loafers. #Footwear”. Cole had apologized once before for using the protests in Cairo to promote his new collection, but obviously just doesn’t get it.
11 Alec Baldwin
Actor Alec Baldwin deleted his Twitter account for the third time after losing his cool and threatening George Stark, a Daily Mail reporter who claimed that Baldwin's wife was tweeting during the funeral of James Gandolfini. He even urged his fans to attack the reporter. Can you say: anger management?
10 Sarah Jessica Parker
9 Gucci Mane
8 Amanda Bynes
7 Rob Kardashian
6 Demi Moore
Ex-wife of the Twitter King Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, took a tweet from Kim Kardashian way too seriously. After a night out with friends LaLa Vasquez, Serena Williams and Kelly Rowland, Kim tweeted a pic with the words “big pimpin'", which set Demi off. Clearly having missed the cultural reference due to a generation gap, the veteran actress tweeted: “…a pimp and pimping is nothing more than a slave owner!" Kim kindly responded that she was referring to a song. Awkward!
5 Jaden Smith
Labeled “cringe-worthy” by Complex magazine, Jaden Smith’s tweets may be the most unexciting thing about him. With gems like “How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren't Real,” Smith's tweets inspire bathroom philosophers everywhere. The rest of us, not so much.
4 Kanye West
Known for his emotional outbursts and nonsensical verbal rants, Kanye West's tweets are just as colorful. The soon-to-be hubby of Kim Kardashian recently surprised host Jimmy Kimmel by insulting the comedian's looks, comedic talent and sexual prowess on Twitter in response to a skit on Kimmel’s show spoofing West using child actors. West later deleted his twitter explosion.
3 Kelly Osbourne
Outspoken E! host, Kelly Osbourne, employs her e-courage to make insults via Twitter. Kelly has trashed her former fiancé, Paris Hilton and others over the social network. Osbourne attacked Lady Gaga after she tweeted a photo with Kelly’s mother, Sharon Osbourne, holding a birthday cake for Kelly. Gaga tweeted in reply: “I didn’t know it was your B-day until this afternoon. Meant as a peace offering. Happy Birthday.” Sheesh. Twittervention anyone?
2 Chris Brown
From uploading photos flaunting his admiration for cannabis to Twitter beefs, Chris Brown has had more than his fair share of tweeting controversy. Brown even deleted his Twitter page after a particularly crude tweet battle with comedy writer, Jenny Jones, got national attention. She won.
1 Anthony Weiner
Even after losing his seat in Congress due to a Twitter scandal, Anthony Weiner remains an active tweeter. Weiner was removed from office after tweeting a link to a photo of his man parts to a woman who was not his wife. Not having learned his lesson, the digital horndog refused to leave the 2013 New York City mayoral race after being involved in a tabloid sexting scandal.
