Modern technology is great, but it can lead to embarrassing moments. Many celebrities carefully cultivate their Twitter communities and try to be entertaining. However, their sometimes flippant remarks have created a number of embarrassing moments, leaving them wishing for a redo mode. Here’s 10 recent twitter fails:
10 – “Gotta say love that SURFACE! Have bought 12 already for Christmas gifts. #Favoritethings” Oprah Winfry @Oprah
Promotion is part of the game, we guess. Oops here – Oprah promoted the Microsoft product from her Apple iPad!
9 – “@ddlovato.X0” Demeteria Lovato
Demi Lovato sent her love to Joe Jonas and he immediately responded with Xo. Realizing it is was out there, he tried to cover the tweet by sending a new tweet to his fans, saying “Xo. I love you all!”
8 – “Some people would throw some1 that they consider a friend under the bus just 2 make themselves look good. #stopbeingaphoney #iftheonly knew” Victoria Justice @Victoriajustice
Here’s one chapter in one of several ongoing live Twitter fights. This fight over the Nickelodeon Victorious tour seems to have ended with the Justice and Ariana Grande reconciled.
7 – “Nawder nad islashehne tsintgi ni a erte” Emma Stone @stnenobrien
What was that? Not a big tweeter, Emma Stone ended up apologizing on TV for this anagram “Andrew and Shailene sitting in a tree,” concerning her friend Shailene Woodley. Actually, she denied sending this one.
6 – “@billyraycyrus since you won’t reply to my texts I’m giving you an hour to tell the truth or ill tell it for you” Miley Ray Cyrus @MileyCyrus
Miley seems to be all about drama but she later deleted this one, which were part of a chain seeming to indicate her dad was cheating on her mom. She later deleted them all, saying, uhh, my twitter account was acting up.
5 – “415-555-555” Justin Bieber @JustinBeiber
They say revenge is best served cold. Bieber served with tweeting, posting the phone number of a kid who supposedly hacked a phone and published Bieber’s phone number. Bieber reciprocated and posted the hacker’s phone number as his, generating a ton of calls and texts.
4 – “@zacefron has an ugly face” Amanda Bynes @AmandaBynes
Just one of a number of texts Byne regularly deletes, part of the reason she ended up in rehab.
3 – “How do you fire Joe Pa? as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste” Ashton Kutcher @aplusk
Ashton should have gotten the whole story before this tweet about Joe Paterno’s firing.
2 – “He’s got a knife” Kate Major @KateMajor
This major embarrassment for Kate Major was deleted when she tweeted about Michael Lohan during a fight. “My emotions were high and I exaggerated,” she said.
1 – “I want Drake to murder my v___” Amanda Bynes @AmandaBynes
I want @drake to murder my vagina
— amanda bynes (@amandabynes) March 22, 2013
Topping the list and her second entry, Bynes became the poster girl for bad taste in tweets during her dark period before treatment. Fortunately, she has tweeted with discretion lately.
While tweets let you speak your mind instantaneously, that is not always the wisest thing to do. Here are 10 tweets celebrities would like to take back.
