One quick scroll through any given comment section under Kim Kardashian's pics on Instagram will make you wonder how she manages to get out of bed in the morning. Then you look up her $65 million net worth, and stop wondering. Haters are positively brutal in the comments. Whether its Youtube, Twitter mentions, or Instagram, the cyber streets run rampant with internet thugs on any given website where freedom of speech is permitted. Putting yourself out there on social media really isn't for the faint of heart. Plainly put, no one in their right mind asks for fame in a time as advanced as this, when humiliating photographs of you enjoying what you thought was a private vacation, can go viral at the drop of a dime. Just ask Iggy Azealea, who relinquished her Twitter account to her management team after embarrassing photos of the rapper's cellulite laden ample derriere in a bikini went viral, and she was torn to shreds by anonymous internet thugs. The internet thug is cruel and relentless, capable of turning a harmless keyboard into a lethal weapon. If celebs aren't being bullied by meanies or other celebs, they're being sexually harassed by complete perverts.
It's easy to forget that these astronomically wealthy famous people are human beings just like the rest of us. They often have to put up a front and act as though they're completely unaffected by mean comments, as depicted in the Jimmy Kimmel Live! segment, where celebs read mean comments from anonymous strangers; but surely it can take its toll. Rapper Iggy's explanation for no longer personally running her Twitter account was this: "I feel the hatred and pettiness I see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that. To become nasty because of the way I feel I am treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling. But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining." Here are 11 of the most cyber bullied celebs on social media.
11 Kim Kardashian
Reality TV star and socialite Kim Kardashian, likely takes the worst beating online. To this day (eight years after the fact), her name is hardly ever brought up without the hideous reminder that will forever haunt her life otherwise known as that sex tape with Ray J. Most recently, Kim received a crap ton of criticism when she made the bizarre and random decision to go bleach blonde. The hilarious memes likening her to Harry Potter's nemesis Malfoy, were endless. Another recent occurrence is the socialite's frequent criticism of plastic surgery, which is causing her to be compared to Micheal Jackson. Many fans and non-fans believe the once unique beauty has had far too much work done on her face, unnecessarily so. Perhaps the worst time of all for Kim was during her first pregnancy when she ballooned to her heaviest weight, and refused to be caught in anything other than couture; which backfired on numerous occasions. As you can imagine, the booty punchlines are never ending with Kim Kardashian, as well as the constant jokes about her sexual inclination towards athletes and African American men.
9 Iggy Azalea
8 Dakota Johnson
50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson received heavy criticism when it was revealed that she would play the lead role of Anastasia Steele in the erotic themed film, mainly because audience members felt she lacked any real sex appeal. Dakota's unconventional appearance was torn apart by critics immediately after casting was revealed, and at one point, she was referred to as a "dishrag without passion, sexiness or chemistry with fellow castmate Jamie Dornan." The daughter of Melanie Griffith was reportedly hurt by the cruel comments putting down her looks, but felt the much anticipated role was a dream come true, and was determined to do an amazing job by proving all of her haters wrong. Eventually the movie was released to mainly poor reviews, but that didn't stop everyone from paying to see it, as it's grossed over $569 million to date worldwide.
7 Lindsay Lohan
6 Karreuche Tran
Best and really only known for being Chris Brown's on-and-off girlfriend, Karreuche Tran is seldom referred to by her actual name, often teased and called instead by any other word that begins with K. Like Kangaroo, Karate Kid, Kilimanjaro, and many more. The aspiring actress was absolutely crucified in 2014, when she guest hosted BET's 106 & Park and made fun of Beyonce's daughter's natural hair. While Karreuche insists she was merely doing her job and reading off of a teleprompter, the bey-hive went into full attack mode, viciously reminding her that she's a nobody by saying things like, "Why Karate always got something to say about people with actual careers? Blue ivy is more important than your whole being @karrueche" and "Blue Ivy will buy all of Vietnam and have ur whole fam working for House of Dereon @karrueche." Karrueche has also been referred to as a rice cake by Rihanna in the 2011 hit Cake, due to her half Asian heritage.
5 Miley Cyrus
Disney star turned wild child Miley Cyrus has always been a polarizing figure. Her latest album Bangerz, is her best selling to date, but also her most controversial piece of work. In 2013 when the 21 year old debuted her new edgy short blond hair style, haters immediately went in. Fellow entertainer Tyler The Creator Tweeted, "Hahahahahah She [Miley] was like 'hey i wanna do something different, f**k me up real quick" Hahahaaha. Like she tripped down a flight of stairs, got better, then got that sh*t. Ok im done." It received thousands of re-Tweets, where upon Miley responded to Tyler by Tweeting, "My barber couldn't even come close to the f*ck job that is your face. you're right you should shut up. PS. your musics dope." Which received even more re-Tweets. Miley is credited with popularizing (and absolutely butchering) the twerking movement. Hundreds of memes were created making fun of the singer's very underdeveloped derriere.
4 Justin Bieber
3 Khloe Kardashian
2 Bruce Jenner
Jenner Patriarch, Bruce Jenner, has been taunted and teased incessantly by the media for years. Much of the jokes made about him stem from the very obvious plastic surgery he's had since the 1980s. The former Olympian who recently confirmed to Diane Sawyer that he is in fact transitioning to female, admitted that he began this transition back in the 1980s, even taking hormone replacement therapy for a shocking 5 years, which was why his appearance was drastically changing back then. Bruce ended the transition after meeting now ex-wife Kris Jenner, in 1990, and the fluctuation in hormones was so harsh on his body causing a botched appearance for all those years. Since 2014, when reports surfaced that he was removing his adam's apple, the jokes about his sexuality were harsh and constant. The KUWTK star's interview with Diane Sawyer was a moment that helped to win over millions of fans after getting the chance to share his truly moving story.
56 year old pop legend Madonna, has been facing ageism for what seems like 100 years now. Several naysayers litter her Instagram photos with discouraging comments reminding the singer that she's been old for quiet some time. Recently, 24 year old Rita Ora defended Madonna's controversial impromptu kiss with 28 year old rapper Drake, during a performance at this year's Coachella festival. Rita said, "Thank you for fighting all these ageist battles, and paving a way, that just maybe one day, all of us "Younger"Artists won't have too in the future! @madonna". The Like A Virgin singer responded by saying, "Thanks Rita! Good to know you appreciate the beating I'm taking so all you ladies don't have to endure this kind of discrimination! #unapolgeticbitches unite! #rebelheart". The Coachella performance was much talked about due to Drake's seemingly disgusted reaction, but Drake later claimed that his face was only contorted after the kiss because of the strange taste of Madonna's lipstick.
