Celebrities are people too…and sometimes they can be having a bad day. We like to give them the benefit of the doubt…but also, they should be nice to those around them! Here are stories (generated online and we have no way of verifying if they are true or not) that tell of celebrities being less than kind to strangers. Here are 15 rude celebrity encounters.
1. Kanye West
The music artist once gained infamy for attacking a photographer and an 18-year-old female fan. West also refuses to take pictures and give out autographs to his fans. It’s not that hard to believe this since he is known to be rude and arrogant to other celebrities publicly as well.
2. Jared Leto
A lot of people may call him “Jesus” because of his appearance, but some fans find him the complete opposite. Leto allegedly humiliated a fan and her mother during one of his concerts. He was even accused of pushing a fan into tears after he screamed various obscenities at her. The rockstar has also been filmed hitting his fans with a microphone while crowd surfing.
3. Gwyneth Paltrow
Paltrow is one of the most disliked celebrities in Hollywood. She once earned the ire of her working mom fan base when she claimed that her job is more challenging than being a working mom. It probably doesn’t help that she’s also difficult to work with according to some of her cast and crew members.
4. Britney Spears
Spears has numerous rude fan encounter stories under her belt. She allegedly screamed at an 8-year-old fan and even name called the poor girl. She is also known to refuse pictures with fans, sign autographs, and doesn’t allow them to touch her. Let’s hope that she’s changed her attitude now that her career is looking up.
5. Justin Bieber
Bieber might be one of the most popular and successful celebrities out there, but his heart isn’t as big when it comes to his fans. He reportedly spit on his fans and even calls them with rude insults. He also does not sign autographs and frequently shows up to his concerts late.
6. Shia LaBeouf
Numerous fans of the former Disney star report that LaBeouf is a rude celebrity. He was once accused of actually threatening to kill a fan. While the rabid supporter was noted to be annoying, people found it to be mean especially since it was only for an autograph.
7. Jennifer Lopez
Reports claim that Jenny from the block refuses to talk to “common folk” and will only do so through her assistants. She also got a maid fired once when she asked the star for an autograph. She also insulted a stewardess for getting her the wrong order. Hopefully she’s changed over the years and is much nicer to her loyal supporters.
8. Kim Kardashian
It probably doesn’t help that Kardashian’s husband is also on this list. Her ex-husband Kris Humphries has old voice mails and texts from Kardashian. Kim was noted to have called her fans as “nobodies,” “pathetic,” and other derogatory terms. She also does not take pictures and give out autographs to her fans.
9. Bam Margera
Margera is known for his outlandish stunts and extreme pranks. It seems that he is also intense towards his fans. Some claim that he is entitled and arrogant. It’s hard not to believe it when he once totaled a car and returned it without even apologizing for his actions.
10. Chris Brown
He once called a female fan fat after she wrote that she thought Brown looked skinny in an Instagram photo. He is also rude to people who criticize him on Twitter. This is one celebrity you wouldn’t want to upset in real life or online.
11. Christian Bale
According to his ex-publicist Harrison Cheung’s biography, the Dark Knight star once lectured the little girls asking for his autograph about being “intrusive” and was so harsh that he actually made them cry.
12. Ariana Grande
A rumor from the New York Daily News says that Grande was all smiles at a meet and greet with fans — before going backstage and saying that they should all “f****** die.”
A Rihanna fan attempted to copy Rihanna’s red carpet look above for her prom outfit. When Rihanna saw the photo, she responded — by making fun of the girl and likening her outfit to a bat.
14. Christina Aguilera
Aguilera allegedly hates shopping with fans, so much so that she demanded that a gag gift store lock its doors while she shopped. When she exited, she allegedly refused to talk to or look at her fans outside, and even laughed at them as she passed by.
15. Robert Pattinson
Pattinson is not shy about his dislike for the vampire flicks that made him famous, Twilight. Pattinson dissed fans of the series when he suggested that TwiHards sit around on their computers all day, obsessing over the fictional world. (You know, the one that gave him his job.)
