We always want the juice, the gist, and sometimes when the shots are getting fired, we are always ready to get our bag of popcorn. Here are times celebrities’ comments have caused more spark than you can imagine in the year 2021 and beyond.
Trigger warning: I have some brief mentions of sexual assault.
The very first happened in the heat of the pandemic. Or during the times we were having thoughts about the COVID vaccine. Nicki Minaj thought it wise to say that she wouldn’t be getting the COVID vaccine because her cousin’s friend got swollen testicles after having a shot. Five, Four, Three, Two, One . . . Boom! We were kind enough to give her some lashing. Twitter is free for all app, but you’re not freedom after speech is not guaranteed.
Another instance was when Cosby Show actor: Phylicia Rashad went on Twitter to celebrate a tweet on Bill Cosby’s release. Well, you know there are some things you don’t just meddle into. Especially when you’re a celebrity.
I think I can say the cancel tribe had the best year. I recall Crissy Teigen started lamenting on Instagram for the mistake she made in the past. What mistake? Tweets of her telling Courtney Stodden to Kill themself in their teenage years.
One beautiful one I can never forget happened in November. Ah! Yes, November 14. You see, I can never forget. Bernie Sanders decided to tweet that the “extremely wealthy pay their fair share.” And Elon Musk came with the GOAT of all Clapback’s “I keep forgetting that you’re still alive.”
Do you get into the studio to work on “something special” just after your country has witnessed one of her most remarkable assaults on democracy? Except you’re Demi Lovato, who decided to tweet about working on “something special in the studio” just right after there was an attempted coup in the Capitol.
When you’re on Twitter or any social media platform. Your wall or page isn’t yours anymore. A random person can decide to piss on his or ram his car into his but not you. You’re a celebrity. A simple thing like hitting the like button on a tweet can cause damage, just like when Carrie Underwood liked an anti-mask tweet. The tweet was filled with a lot of COVID misinformation. So no. you can’t just do that.
Let me wrap it up with this. Did you remember when Sia received heavy backlash for how she depicted autism in her movie Music and in the midst of it all? When one actor suggested that the movie should have had more autism representation (everything and everyone just wants to be represented these days), Sia tweeted to the actor: Maybe you’re just a bad actor. Well. From all, we know she may be right. Oops.
