From Cardi B To Julia Roberts: 27+ Celebrities Who Can Be Extra Salty
| LAST UPDATE 07/13/2021
Some celebrities have been known to get pretty salty at times, from snapping at eager fans to arguing with colleagues. Check out these stars who've managed to rub people the wrong way and how it all went down.
Over the last couple of years, Jennifer Lawrence has been called "rude" by various people in the entertainment industry. She was also called a "spoiled brat" by some viewers after throwing shade at British actress Joanna Lumley.
But unlike many stars, Lawrence didn't deny these accusations. "I become incredibly rude," she admitted. "I turn into a huge [expletive]. That's my only way of defending myself." Apparently, that's how she copes with the wrath of Hollywood.
Demi Lovato's frequently appeared to be bubbly and kind on the TV screen, but when one fan tried to talk to her at a restaurant, she wasn't too pleased with their encounter. "My sister walked over on her own, and I sat and watched Demi tell her something along the lines of, 'No, can't you see I'm f***ing busy?!'"
"My sister came back to me in tears, and we immediately paid for our unfinished food and left because she was so upset," the fan revealed. Apparently, some celebrities prefer to be left alone while they're out in public, but it looks like this little girl was just overwhelmed with excitement when she spotted Demi.
When one of Justin Bieber's fans threw a gift on stage during his speech, evidently, he wasn't having it and came off rude to many audience members. "Take this moment to listen. And try not to give me a hat or whatever you're trying to throw onto the stage right now because I probably don't want that sh**," he said on stage.
Apparently, Bieber also doesn't like posing for pictures, because in 2016, he took to Instagram to tell fans, "If you see me out somewhere, know that I'm not going to take a picture, I'm done taking pictures." Many Beliebers were heartbroken and couldn't believe the words that came from their favorite star.
While there were many memorable moments from the 2015 Tidal X: 1020 concert in Brooklyn, New York, there was one particular instance that stood out to lots of fans. Beyonce was supposedly posing for photos on the Red Carpet, and her assistant swooped in to adjust her wardrobe.
Queen B was displeased by this and snapped at her assistant, telling her to "Stop it" through her clenched teeth. Based on the look on the young woman's face, she appeared distressed. After watching this, many fans called Beyonce rude and felt sorry for her hard-working assistant.
Jeffree Star, a famous beauty influencer, appeared to deeply hurt one of his fans on Twitter last year. One user tweeted that she was excited to start working at Ulta Beauty, a store that sells Star's products, so he congratulated her. When another fan commented on the post to promote his own work, Jeffree wasn't happy.
Star responded, "I'm congratulating someone on a job, why the f*** are you making this about you?? Bye." The fan tweeted back, "Not a good feeling to be talked to like that by someone you've looked up to for years." They exchanged a few more tweets, but it didn't look like Jeffree was very open to seeing his point of view.
After publicly bashing Michael Bay because of how he supposedly treated her on the set of Transformers, other crew members made various claims about Megan Fox, implying she was difficult and unpleasant to work with. A few people apparently called her "Ms. Sourpants" and said she was "thankless, classless, graceless."
According to screenwriter Ehren Kruger, "She seemed like an actress who didn't want to be a part of it. She was saying she wanted to, but she wasn't acting like it." Bay also told GQ that Fox "was in a different world, on her blackberry," making filming extremely difficult.
Justin Timberlake might be the ultimate triple threat when it comes to singing, dancing, and acting, but some people haven't been impressed by him once the cameras stopped rolling. He dissed football while speaking at a Super Bowl conference, which rubbed some football fanatics the wrong way.
He also came off as somewhat aggressive to some paparazzi back in the day, while he was dating Cameron Diaz. While some photographers were trying to snap a photo, Timberlake snapped at them and shouted, "Get out of my face." Then he slapped the camera out of the photographer's hand, as he was fed up with the paparazzi.
When Ariana Grande invited beauty influencer James Charles backstage after one of her concerts, apparently, Ariana didn't make the greatest impression. According to Charles, Grande was the "rudest celebrity" he'd ever met, as he later shared in a YouTube video with Shane Dawson in 2018.
Ariana must've been bothered by this because she unfollowed the influencer on Instagram, so he asked her why. "Hey babe, I saw a lot of angry tweets from my fans, and I would never want to disappoint them, so I unfollowed," Grande explained. Apparently, her fans also found James to be rude.
There's no doubt Gwyneth Paltrow is an extremely successful actress and businesswoman, but many people have found her to be rude, obnoxious, and even dishonest over the years. To put things into perspective, the Hollywood star was named the world's most hated celebrity by Star Magazine a few years ago.
Some of the statements she's made about her lifestyle brand, Goop, have been deemed incorrect by medical professionals and NASA representatives. The brand claimed that its Body Vibes stickers were made of "NASA spacesuit material," but a NASA representative said, "it's a load of BS."
Molly Bloom, who became famous for her high-end poker games, often hosted actor Tobey Maguire, and when she published her memoir, Molly's Game, she revealed some unpleasant memories of Maguire. Bloom claimed that he "was the worst tipper, the best player, and the absolute worst loser."
Molly also said that Tobey enjoyed "destroying the lives of his fellow players" and did whatever it took to win, even if that meant turning his back on his friends. Some suspect that his gambling behavior may have impacted his reputation as an actor, as his career slowed down over the years.
You know how fans get when they see their favorite celeb in the real world; Pictures, please! But when one girl was excited by the sight of Kylie Jenner at a restaurant in Hollywood one night, Kylie showed no interest in snapping a photo and didn't even flash a smile.
The fan tugged on Jenner's arm in hopes of catching her attention, and Kylie shouted, "Don't touch me, okay!" Something tells us that picture never happened. Another fan tweeted, "I met Kendall and Kylie Jenner today, and they are b***hes," after meeting them at an event in 2014.
With modern technology and social media usage at an all-time high, most people who attend concerts record at least part of the show on their phones. But when Adele performed in Verona, Italy, a few years ago, she wasn't having any of this and spoke her mind when she saw the number of cameras in the crowd.
"Could you stop filming me with that video camera?" Adele said on stage. "Because I'm really here in real life, you can enjoy it in real life rather than through your camera." Many fans were shocked by this outburst. The artist also said, "There are plenty of people outside that couldn't come in," hoping to get her point across.
Chad Michael Murray
When the Nintendo Wii came out back in the day, one person's opinion of Chad Michael Murray completely changed after seeing the actor at the store. The man was waiting in line for hours, and suddenly, "CMM pulls up in an SUV, parks right in front of the store, at the front of the line."
Chad expected to get celebrity treatment, but the guy working at the store treated him like a regular customer, so "CMM started name dropping and playing the celebrity card," the man revealed. In the end, Chad got his Wii, and "I kept thinking about the kid at the end of the line that didn't get one because of him."
Charli & Dixie D'Amelio
TikTok's sensational D'Amelio sisters recently suffered on social media after countless fans viewed them as extremely rude. When their personal chef, Aaron May, served them dinner one night, Charli and Dixie made it clear they weren't pleased with the meal, making faces and refusing to eat the food.
"This is not cute or anything; The D'Amelios are rude, ungrateful, and disrespectful!" said one fan in response to the video. "They didn't even have table manners," another viewer commented. "They put their knees up at the table and Dixie spit out a snail. That's just disgusting and disrespectful."
Austin McBroom, famous for his YouTube channel, the ACE Family, has continually updated fans on all aspects of his life, alongside his wife, Catherine. But when the McBrooms went on vacation and didn't post as much content as fans had expected, they started asking Austin what was going on.
McBroom tweeted back, saying, "Some of y'all are ungrateful for free content." Many fans were surprised by this and found Austin to be quite rude. "Idk why y'all think it's just so easy to make videos every day or every other day. If it was so easy, everyone, including yourself, would be doing it," he continued.
Katherine Heigl's reputation of being a "difficult" actress to work with all began at the 2008 Emmys. She withdrew herself from the race because she didn't believe the "material" Shonda Rimes had given her in Grey's Anatomy was "to warrant an Emmy nomination."
"On some level, it stung, and on some level, I was not surprised," Rimes revealed. "When people show you who they are, believe them." After seeing Heigl in this new light, Rimes wrote her character off the show. "I don't put up with bulls**t or nasty people," Shonda later said. "I don't have time for it."
Hailey Bieber was recently called out by the hostess of a New York City restaurant, Julia Carolan, who made a TikTok about her encounters with the model. While working at a high-end restaurant, Carolan crossed paths with many celebrities and claimed she never had a positive interaction with Hailey.
"This is gonna be controversial," said Carolan. "I've met her a handful of times and every time she was not nice. I really wanna like her, but I have to give her a 3.5 out of 10." As soon as Bieber caught wind of Julia's video, she apologized and said she'd never intended to come off as rude.
Chris Rock indeed knows how to crack a joke, and he seems like a ton of fun to be around, but after a disappointing encounter with him, one fan changed his perspective on the actor. He'd waited for over an hour to ride a rollercoaster at Six Flags, and when he finally reached the front, a celeb swooped in and snagged his spot.
"Chris Rock and his family come walking up from the exit and are given my spot, without waiting at all," the fan explained. As you can probably imagine, this guy was furious, especially since he didn't even get to snap a photo with Rock or really say anything to him at all.
Part of being in the spotlight often means exposing your personal life, but not every celebrity is willing to do that. After getting frustrated with many fans for talking about private matters, Cardi B tweeted, "I really hate when fans step over the line. Don't talk about people I work with."
"No, I don't need ya to kiss my a** but don't disrespect the people I'm close with," the rapper continued. Cardi mentioned a few of her friends and colleagues, warning fans to never speak badly about them. "Dumba** fans always wanna say some dumba** s***," Cardi explained.
Lindsay Lohan certainly had her glory days in the movie industry, but according to some, she wasn't the person we saw on the big screen. "Producing a movie with Lindsay is not for the faint of heart," said producer Larry Thompson. He claimed that filming Liz & Dick with her posed "some serious challenges."
Lohan made a comeback in 2019 with her reality show Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club, but some people on the show found her extremely rude. "I just realize that Lindsay herself is not such a good person," said contestant Kailah Casillas. "You can be a boss and still be respectful and allow people to talk to you like a human being."
One of the most dramatic feuds to go down in the beauty industry was between James Charles and Tati Westbrook after James supposedly betrayed Tati. Charles promoted a brand that happened to be Tati's rival, and she publicly expressed how hurt she was. "I don't want to associate with you," she shared.
Tati got some other influencers and millions of James' subscribers to turn on him and express their opinion on the matter. Many felt that Charles had stabbed Westbrook in the back and was disloyal and rude. Countless fans even started using the hashtags #JamesCharlesIsOverParty and #JamesCharlesIsCancelled.
At the premiere of Duplicity in 2009, film critic and journalist Roger Friedman recalled having a pretty unfortunate encounter with Julia Roberts. "She was rude, downright nasty, and dismissive," he claimed. "She snubbed me in front of other people to make her point, and later cut in between me and director Tony Gilroy."
"Her behavior was unexpected and chilling," Friedman added. He asked Julia's publicist why she was treating him this way, who told him, "She knows you broke the embargo on her play and wrote bad things about her." But truthfully, Roberts had confused Friedman with another critic, as he'd reportedly praised her work.
Jake Paul's had some public feuds with various viral stars, and recently, he managed to rub Gigi Hadid the wrong way. It all started when Jake tweeted about anxiety, making statements about its causes and how people can treat it. This bothered many people, and eventually, Paul tried to provoke Zayn Malik to give his input.
Instead, Gigi Hadid wrote back, "Lol cause he doesn't care to hang out w you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies." She then compared Zayn and Jake, saying that Zayn was a respectful boyfriend, while the vlogger just spent time with his "embarrassing" friends. Something tells us Gigi found his tweets quite rude.
In 2018, Lily Allen was banned from multiple talk shows because of things she said on and off the camera. After appearing on Loose Women, it was decided, "We wouldn't welcome her back," said a source from the show. "She was rude to everyone. Rude to the team backstage and rude to the panelists."
Piers Morgan also banned Allen from his show, Good Morning Britain, and viewers supported his decision. The British singer accused Morgan of "misogynistic abuse of power," so he put his foot down. "They can't get rid of her quick enough," one viewer tweeted about Lily.
In 2011, while sitting on an American Airlines flight preparing for takeoff, Alec Baldwin was removed from the aircraft. "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 [sic] playing WORDS [WITH] FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving," the actor tweeted.
While Baldwin found this to be unnecessary, the flight attendants felt otherwise. American Airlines shared in a statement, "The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language." Something tells us Baldwin didn't fly with that airline again.
Miley Cyrus has typically been pretty friendly and kind to fans, but she didn't hold back her true feelings during one particular run-in with the paparazzi. After trying to snap a photo of the singer, a photographer brushed past Miley's mother, Tish, and bumped the side of her face.
Cyrus got extremely defensive about the photographer getting too close to her mom, yelling, "Are you serious??" You almost hurt my mom! Don't ever do that again!" The photographer promised Miley that he'd never meant to hurt anyone; He just wanted a picture. But Miley must've thought otherwise.
Over the last year, Lea Michele has received a lot of criticism on social media about how she treated her former castmates on Glee. "Was she unpleasant to work with? Very much so," Heather Morris shared. "For Lea to treat others with the disrespect that she did for as long as she did, I believe she SHOULD be called out."
This comment, along with many others, stemmed from an accusation that Michele made her former costar, Samantha Marie Ware's, life miserable onset, and many were offended by some of her tweets over the years. "You were once very unkind to me, so I am not surprised by your behavior," said Real Housewives star Aviva Drescher.
Who can forget Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift in the middle of her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs? Well, apparently, Kanye's not too fond of being interrupted himself, especially by the paparazzi. At a gas station in California, the paparazzi tried to get his attention, shouting, "Hey Kanye!"
The photographers were likely caught off guard by the rapper's response; "I'm on the phone, how about that? Shut the f*** up, I'm on the phone." After the VMAs incident, many people saw the rapper as extremely rude. So, this was just the icing on the cake for some.
New York Times food columnist, Alison Roman, has dominated the culinary industry for years, and when a famous face published her own cookbook, Roman was pretty salty. Chrissy Teigen launched her own book earlier this year, and immediately, Roman claimed that she only did it for some extra cash.
"She has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it's just like, people running a content farm for her," Alison said in an interview. Teigen said she was very hurt by this, as it was completely false. Chrissy's fans jumped to her defense and viewed Roman's comments as rude and disrespectful.
Ever since launching her YouTube channel, Tana Mongeau has faced plenty of backlash from viewers about her controversial content. Some have found her videos offensive, leading many to call the vlogger "rude," "spoiled," and countless other names that could have offended her.
In March, many viewers were taken aback by how she handled a medical situation on an episode of MTV No Filter. "She's literally so toxic," said one viewer. "The fact that she doesn't care and is acting like this is pathetic." Others shared that after Tana was diagnosed with asthma, they were shocked that she continued to use illegal substances.
