Public masturbation is not exactly a topic anyone wants to be associated with. Certainly, what people choose to do within the confines of their own home is up to them. No matter how much someone wishes to pleasure themselves, there is generally one rule of thumb with masturbation: don’t do it in public. However, this is a fact that, for some, is very difficult to grasp. Like with anything in the world, there are rules associated with such activities. And one of those rules is simple: don’t yank it in public.
Other people have gone the extra mile to be inappropriate in public settings. Certainly, masturbation is a big no-no, but there are other ways to get yourself into trouble. Public indecency combined with inappropriate behavior can get a lot of regular people in trouble. But when celebrities partake in terrible public acts, it not only can get them arrested, it can make them go viral.
And sometimes there are moments that are captured on film that have nothing to do with celebrities trying to do bad. They just can’t help themselves and end up looking foolish in a public setting. These kinds of actions in today’s online world can lead to major issues for celebrities and damage their reputations beyond repair.
With so much to lose, it’s a wonder why people in the spotlight would ever do stupid things in public. This is a list of 10 Celebrities Who Did Gross Things In Public
10 Jason Russell – Naked Retreat
If you are a dedicated activist and filmmaker, you want to be taken seriously. That is what is so perplexing about director Jason Russell and his complete meltdown. Russell directed the dramatic short documentary Kony 2012, a video which has been seen over 100 million times on YouTube. He also is the founder of the nonprofit Invisible Children.
However, at the height of the attention Russell was receiving for Kony, he had a breakdown. The filmmaker ended up running around naked, culminating in a scene of public masturbation on a street corner in San Diego, California. Later, Russell said it was an “out of body experience” in referring to the breakdown. Seems like he was enjoying his body just fine.
9 Justin Bieber – Milk Was A Bad Choice
Justin Bieber has gotten a lot slack for embarrassing moments. He was caught egging a neighbor’s house and had to pay up big damages. Then there was the infamous pot smoking incident with his father on a private jet in which the pilots and flight attendants complained over the plane being turned into one giant hot-boxed aerial bong. But we are focused on something more private. Normally, if a person gets sick they rush to the bathroom to take care of the issue.
However, in this instance, Bieber was on stage in the middle of a performance in Phoenix, Arizona. The 2012 concert made big news when Bieber, in the middle of singing the lyrics to “Out of Town Girl” had to turn away from the audience and puke all over the stage. Comically, the background track which included his voice continued as Bieber quickly stepped off stage. He returned and finished his performance. Bravo to Biebs though. When commenting about the incident, he blamed it on milk and made this brilliant Ron Burgundy-esqu quote, “milk was a bad choice.”
8 Kellen Winslow Jr. – Vaseline And A Target Parking Lot
If you are a professional athlete and the son of a football legend, you would think the common sense truck would have stopped off at your house. Not so with Kellen Winslow Jr.. Despite having a father that was used to the spotlight, Winslow Jr. didn’t get the memo on not embarrassing your family name. Parked in a Target parking lot in New Jersey near the tail end of his football career, Winslow went solo with some Vaseline and marijuana, enjoying all the amenities you could enjoy inside your own parked car.
In other words, he whipped it out and began to pleasure himself. A curious woman nearby approached the car. What’s even better is Winslow Jr. had his windows down! Dude, at least raise the tinted window! Comically, Winslow's ridiculous excuse for the display was that he couldn't find the nearest Boston Market. The public display got Winslow Jr. arrested for possession of a controlled substance but they let the “loaded weapon” in his hand charge slide. Although Boston Market had a lot of fun with Twitter on this one. They let Winslow Jr. know he could use their app and just GPS the store from now on.
7 Ariana Grande – Doughnut Fetish
So, if you’re a young attractive pop superstar, what do you do when you head out into public? Well, if you’re Ariana Grande, you head into a doughnut shop and you lick doughnuts that don’t belong to you. Then, for the "icing on the doughnut," you shout that you “hate America.” Yes, this little cookie decided to go rogue on the world and thought she would get away with it until the incident was caught on video!
Surprise! Grande went from immature spoiled brat to damage control mode; her immature child-like behavior went viral. She somehow thought a simple apology would do the trick. At the end of the day, saying you hate America and trying to infect other people with your germs isn’t very cool, Ariana. It has left a stink on her ever since.
6 Pee-Wee Herman - Playing With His Pee-Wee
There is weird and then there is Pee-Wee Herman weird. Born Paul Reubens, Pee-wee Herman got into a lot of trouble. The Pee-wee’s Playhouse star was a huge draw for kids who loved his quirkiness. However, no one found it humorous when he got arrested in a Florida porn theater in 1991 for masturbating in public. His show was pulled and his celebrity hit a giant brick wall.
But his weirdness doesn’t stop there. In 2004, it was revealed that Reubens pleaded guilty to possessing obscene images of minors. In defending himself, Reubens claimed he was just a collector of artistic erotica. Child porn and artistic erotica are not the same thing, although I have no idea what the heck artistic erotica actually is so maybe they could be. Either way, Reubens is a sick dude.
5 Daniele Watts – Back Seat Lover
Watts was a typical young actress taking on small roles as they came. Then came her big break in Quinton Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Watts played a slave and has since enjoyed increased attention. But not all the attention she has received has been positive. Watts and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas, decided to have some impromptu fun in their car one sunny afternoon. They were having sex in their automobile on full display for everyone to see. Neighbors were not amused and called the LAPD to complain.
After being caught red-handed, Watts later went on a tirade accusing the police of racial profiling. Despite Watts’s claims to throw down the racism card, she was trumped by audio that contradicted her lies. Watts and Lucas pleaded “no contest” and were court ordered to write an apology letter to the police department. Their first draft got rejected by the court (true story). They had to re-write the letter a second time.
4 Fergie – No Toilet, No Problem
Singers often have demanding schedules and they exude a tremendous amount of energy when performing. Knowing they are going to be dancing and singing for several hours, the performers need to stay hydrated. One night in 2005, Fergie found out that being really hydrated could be really embarrassing.
The singer was performing on stage when she had to go. Unlike Dave at the insurance office who makes 10 pee breaks a day, Fergie was stuck on stage. So, when "ya gotta go…ya gotta go." And she went. Fergie literally peed herself as she sang. She continued on singing but the giant pee stain in her pants is definitely a memory ingrained in all of our brains to this day. This is one photo that will follow her forever.
3 Fred Willard – Porn Theater Fanatic
Funny man Fred Willard is known for being a hilarious talent. Willard, who currently makes guest appearances on the hit show Modern Family, got himself caught in a not-so-amusing situation. He was bored one day and decided to go to a porn movie theater. Good to know they still exist. There, he did what everyone does when they go to watch movies of that genre - he masturbated.
Willard’s lawyers chimed in and stated: “With all due respect to the individual officer, our belief is that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law. We will work vigorously to clear his name in this matter.” According to nearby observers, clearing his name isn’t the only thing Willard does vigorously.
2 Nick Stahl – Naughty Video Store
Nick Stahl was known as an up-and-coming star in Hollywood. The young actor pulled off impressive performances in Terminator 3 and the awesome dramatic HBO series Carnivale. After those performances, however, Stahl’s life turned into a real life carnival when you add serious substance abuse issues and disappearing off the face of the Earth for extended periods of time. That’s right, he was literally lost and people close to him had no idea where he had gone. And this happened multiple times.
In addition to his drug addiction, Stahl was caught masturbating in an adult video store in Hollywood. I guess Stahl couldn’t wait to bring the movie home. The police came and took Stahl away. He claimed it was a “misunderstanding.” Sure, we all have that moment when we are reaching for our wallet in the dirty video store and accidentally grab ourselves and start to go to town. Happens to everyone.
1 Andy Dick – King of Indecency
Andy Dick’s laundry list of issues are the things legends are made of (and we are using legends in a very negative light here). Let’s begin by stating that Dick has had a history of drug and alcohol abuse issues. The list is so long and absurd, we have to go to bullet points for the degenerate repeat offender. It all started very innocently in 2004 when Dick dropped his pants at a McDonalds restaurant. From there, the gates of hell opened up.
- 2004 – Dick moons everyone at McDonalds, pulling his pants down for all to see.
- 2005 – While performing on stage in Edmonton, Alberta, Dick drops his pants and exposes his genitals to the audience.
- 2006 – During the taping of the Comedy Central roasting of William Shatner, Dick repeatedly licked other celebrities who attempted to remain cool under pressure despite the unwanted licking.
- 2007 – As a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Dick is out of control attempting to touch and grope Ivanka Trump. Kimmel has to have Dick forcibly escorted off stage.
- 2008 – Dick is arrested in Murrieta, CA for sexual battery when he exposes the breasts of a 17-year-old girl. He forcibly grabbed and pulled down her tank top and bra.
- January 2010 - Dick is arrested on charges for sexual abuse in Huntington, WV for groping a bartender and a patron.
- October 2010 - Dick was seen exposing himself at Café Audrey in Hollywood, CA.

- April 2011 - Dick was at a party in Newport Beach, CA when he exposed himself and urinated on a backdrop at the event.
All we can say is Andy Dick has committed more lewd acts than everyone else on this list, combined. Wow. Add this to his IMDB page.
