11 Celebs Who Tried To Private Message (But Embarrassingly Failed)

The most infamous form of communication between stars and fans is the direct message, better known as the DM. The rapper Yo Gotti even has a song about this interaction called "Down in the DM," demonstrating to us all that it all really does go down in the DM. For anyone not in the know, a direct message is a private message on Instagram or Twitter that no one else can see in their social feeds. Users can DM anyone who is following them. So this means that your favorite celebrities can interact with all of the fans who follow them if they really want to. And plenty of them have done just that. Well, maybe not DMing every fan, but plenty of stars have reached out to some of their followers— especially the attractive ones, if you know what I'm saying.

Believe it or not, your favorite celebrities have slid into the DM's to hit on their fans. And as you can expect, these instances did not stay private for long.  Not only was the thirst too real, but it's also become a public matter plenty of times. And it is always embarrassing, to put it mildly.

But whatever, these are celebrities. These are people who are rich and famous, so getting turned down by a fan is not going to make a major dent in their confidence. But for us normal people, it provides plenty of laughs and reminds us that even celebrities can get dehydrated from time to time. The thirst is very real. Check out these 11 celebrities who got caught sliding into the DM's and failed.

10 Cristiano Ronaldo - Allegedly Requested Photos From Minor


9 Jose Canseco - "Your Pretty How Old Are You"


8 JR Smith - You Want The Pipe?


JR Smith was very direct during a Twitter DM interaction with a fan, who happened to be a high school senior at the time. It's unclear if JR Smith knew how old the girl was during the incident, but his thirst was pretty entertaining and hilarious when he straight up asked her, "You trying to get the pipe?" The question became instantly iconic and people taunted him and made fun of him for it online and on the sidelines at games for months. This is something that the NBA player will never be able to live down— ever.

6 Tyga - Creeps On Minors

5 Drake Bell - Asked For Foursome 

4 Swizz Beatz - Shady Beats?

3 Casper Smart - DMed Transgender Model


2 AnnaLynne McCord - Accidentally Sent Topless Photo To Fan

1 Marcus Jordan - Hit On Adult Film Star

via twitter

Yes, I know that Marcus Jordan is not actually a celebrity, but he is the son of basketball legend Michael Jordan so I have to count this one. Plus, the story is way too ridiculous not to include in this list. Marcus meant to privately message an adult star named Rachel Roxxx, but he accidentally tweeted her. This means that his message was very public. So what did he say? "too bad u wasnt n the chi this weekend was ready for round 2, 1st black one huh? dm me back boo got more for u." Clearly this dude thought he was in the DM's. Poor guy. Also what was with the dollar signs at the end? Did that imply that he would pay to interact with her? Later, Marcus denied that he wrote that, but either way it was an embarrassing tweet on his account. I can't help feeling that it was actually meant for a DM, but whatever, not my business.
