Who doesn’t love Instagram? It’s a great social media site that allows users to share pictures with the whole world. And the best part is that the photos shared are posted immediately after they are taken (or should be, anyways).
However, just like on other social media sites, people sometimes post photos on Instagram without thinking and later regret their decision. If they change their mind, the photo can always be removed from their Instagram profile. But while normal human beings may get away with doing that, celebrities don't.
We all know that whenever celebrities post something on social media their fans will often take screenshots of the post. So even when celebrities decide to delete a post, chances are the post will still be floating around somewhere on the internet with no way of getting rid of it for good.
15 Scott Disick's Failed Advertising Campaign
We all know by now that big companies seek out famous people and pay them handsomely to advertise their products on social media. But of course, some celebrities are better at this than others.
Take Scott Disick, for example. Disick was contacted by a company to advertise their product Bootea, which is basically a detoxing protein shake. Disick took a snap with the product and then simply copied and pasted the caption that the company sent him. That was a mistake. The caption said – “Here you go, at 4pm est, write the below. Caption: Keeping up with the summer workout routine with my morning @booteauk protein shake!”
As you can imagine, Disick’s fans were quick to notice the caption and Disick immediately deleted the photo. Moral of the story? Always proofread everything you post online.
14 Beyonce's Photoshopped Thigh
We all know that Beyonce loves to photoshop her pictures. We don’t know why she does it – she’s an extremely beautiful woman and does not need photoshop to enhance her appearance. But it seems like Beyonce doesn’t know that.
Beyonce is clearly not very happy with her legs and thighs and thus keeps photoshopping them. In fact, her legs and thighs appear to be photoshopped in every picture that Beyonce posts.
Take the above photo as an example – it seems quite normal. However, have a look at the wine glass and the iPhone – can you notice how both of them are curved? That’s because Beyonce was trying to touch up her thighs again.
13 Justin Bieber Posts Photos Of Selena Gomez And Himself After Breaking Up
Who can deny that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber made a lovely couple? Their relationship was both rocky and passionate. They broke up and got back together numerous times, confusing both of their fans.
In 2014, Gomez said that she doesn’t want to talk about Bieber anymore – “Well, I am sorry, first of all. And honestly, what I would love to be printed is that I am so beyond done with talking about that, and him.”
Bieber, on the other hand, said nothing but kept posting photos of himself and Gomez. When his fans freaked out after seeing the images, Bieber said – “Just a throwback calm down.” He later deleted the images.
12 Vanessa Hudgens Breaks The Law
Who says romance is dead? Have a look at the above image that Vanessa Hudgens posted on Instagram on Valentine’s Day. The photo was of a carving of a heart with the names ‘Austin’ and ‘Vanessa’ in it. The caption read – “Happy Valentine’s Day boo boo bears.” How cute is that?
However, the police did not appreciate Hudgens' romantic streak. After all, carving the heart into a rock near Sedona basically made Hudgens a criminal because she damaged a natural feature on US Forest Service land.
The crime can lead to six months in prison and up to $5,000 fine. Hudgens deleted the romantic photo and also paid a $1,000 fine.
11 Snoop Dogg's Homophobic Post
It always comes as a shock when our favorite celebrities appear to be homophobic. Take the rapper Snoop Dogg as an example. Everyone praised him for standing against homophobia when he appeared in the 2009 film Bruno and sang “Hey, hey, he gay... OK” alongside Elton John.
However, in 2014 Snoop Dogg shocked his fans when he shared a homophobic post both on Instagram and Twitter which he deleted shortly after. The post featured an image that was taken from another Instagram user and was captioned as “U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page and disrespectn b***h boy go suck ya man n get off my line f**.”
10 Lindsay Lohan's Trouble With A Foreign Language
A couple of years ago, Lindsay Lohan tweeted the Arabic term ‘habibi’, a term of endearment that can be translated to ‘lover’ and ‘beloved’. Lohan then went on to her Instagram where she posted an image that said ‘You’re beautiful’ both in English and Arabic.
Of course, Lohan doesn’t speak Arabic and clearly, most of her followers don’t either for they thought it was a lovely image. However, some followers fluent in Arabic immediately commented that Lohan got the Arabic phrase wrong.
Apparently, in the Instagram post the Arabic phrase above the English phrase “You’re beautiful” actually meant “You’re a donkey.” The embarrassed Lohan deleted the image almost instantly.
9 Harry Styles Spills A Drink On His Pants
Remember that time when Harry Styles posted an image of his wet crotch? He had been on a night out and many of his followers instantly grew concerned – had Styles accidentally wet himself? And if so, why?
Thankfully, it turned out that the singer had simply spilled a drink on his pants. He obviously shared the picture with the desire to show his fans that no one is perfect – even celebrities can have awkward, clumsy moments.
However, for some reason Styles later deleted the image. But not before his fans had taken a screenshot of it, of course!
8 Anne Hathaway Shares An Offensive Meme
Last year the actress Anne Hathaway shared an Instagram meme of the actress Helena Bonham Carter. The meme read - “In a world of Kardashians... be a Helena Bonham Carter.” Obviously, Hathaway’s intention was good – she simply wanted to encourage her fans to be themselves.
However, almost immediately after posting the meme, Hathaway received an alarming number of negative comments from the Kardashian clan fans.
As a result, Hathaway felt like she had no choice but to delete the meme. She substituted the image with another one that said “Post removed for unintended shade thrown” and captioned it as “It never occurred to me I was pitting anyone against each other. Not my style. Peace x.”
7 Kim Kardashian's Throwback Photo
The Kardashians have changed quite a lot since the beginning of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But just to remind her fans just how much they’ve changed and how far they’ve come, Kim Kardashian decided to share a few throwback photos on her Instagram page.
Kim commented on the pictures saying – “It’s still so hard to believe we’re on our 12th season of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’!!! We went to Mexico for a swimwear shoot while we were filming season one and had a blast. We look like babies here LOL.” She later deleted the photo although we’re not sure why.
6 Khloe Kardashian's Photoshopped Abs
Last year, the reality TV star Khloe Kardashian posted a photo of her abs on Instagram. She captioned the image as – “I just trying to be better than I used to be. I compete with myself. Thanks @gunnarfitness for kicking my a** today.”
However, Khloe’s fans immediately noticed that the photo appeared altered because of the unnaturally crooked line where the door meets the door frame.
Khloe’s disappointed fans left comments such as “No need to photoshop you have an amazing body!” Perhaps the latter comment embarrassed Khloe because it wasn’t long until she deleted the image from her Instagram account.
5 Chris Brown's New Tattoo
A couple of years ago, singer Chris Brown got a tattoo of Venus de Milo tattooed on his head. He shared a photo of his new ink on Instagram and then immediately deleted it. However, Brown’s fans took a screenshot of the picture.
The tattoo artist King Rico shared a photo of Chris Brown and his new tattoo as well, which he captioned as “It was a pleasure to tatt the new King of Pop and watch him put together another record in front of [me].”
While the placement of the singer’s new tattoo shocked many of his fans, Brown evidently doesn’t care, for a few days later he got two fighting bulls tattooed beside Venus de Milo. He took a snap of them and captioned the image as “I can do what the f**k I want!”
4 Kendall Jenner's Statement Jumper
Kendall Jenner is a beautiful woman and she’s not afraid to own up to her imperfections, or what others may deem to be “imperfections”. So it came as no surprise when a few years ago Jenner snapped a photo of herself wearing a grey statement jumper that said: “I Have No T**s” and posted it on Instagram.
However, sometime later the starlet deleted the photograph from her account for no apparent reason.
Jenner also wore the statement jumper during her final night at Coachella. However, when the paparazzi tried to snap her picture Jenner appeared to be camera shy and shielded her face from the photographers.
3 Kylie Jenner Jokes About Rob Being The Devil
Remember when Rob Kardashian was dating Blac Chyna? Rob’s siblings, and especially Kylie Jenner, were not too happy about it. In fact, they were not happy with the relationship at all. You can understand why Kylie did not like Blac Chyna – after all, she was Tyga’s former fiancée. As a result, Jenner took to social media and joked that Rob was the devil.
The post you see above was not original – in fact, Jenner re-posted it from another social media user. The image had the question “what does this mean” captioned underneath it and the original poster replied with “It means he is not your brother anymore, b***h get out of the house?”
To show her fans and Rob that her brother had betrayed her, Jenner captioned it as “This is @robkardashian lol.”
2 Rob Kardashian Thinks Kim Is Two-Faced
We all know that siblings don’t always get along. Take the Kardashians for example. They’re always at each other’s throats. For example, remember that time when Rob Kardashian posted an image of Amy Dunne (played by Rosamund Pike) from Gone Girl on Instagram and captioned it as “This is my sister kim, the bitch from Gone Girl...”?
Of course, it wasn’t long before Rob deleted the image but a source close to the Kardashian family revealed that Rob initially posted the image because he felt that his sister Kim was two-faced – “Rob is in a dark place. Kim told him he needs to get out of his funk. His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored.”
1 Justin Bieber's On A Boat
A couple of years ago, Justin Bieber posted a photo of him standing on a boat completely nude. As predicted, his fans went crazy and started leaving comments such as “Front view bieber!!!” and “I’ll never stop lookin.”
However, only a few days later Bieber deleted the picture and even went so far as to apologize. In place of the racy picture he posted a photo of himself fully clothed with his back to the camera and captioned the image as “Hey I Deleted the photo of my butt on Instagram not because I thought it was bad but someone close to me’s daughter follows me and she was embarrassed that she saw my butt and I totally wasn’t thinking in that aspect. And I felt awful that she felt bad.”
