Ah, celebrities – clearly, they’re just like us. Sure, they live in fancier houses and drive fancier cars, but that doesn’t mean that they’re immune to the embarrassing moments which haunt everyday life. And one area in which they never, ever disappoint? Social media.
You can hit the delete button, but once something’s on the internet, it’s there forever. And at no point is that truer than when it comes to a social media clanger. Here is our edited list of the most iconic celebrity tweets that they’ve tried their best to get rid of – but failed miserably. Think of it as a tour through the Twitter archives.
When you give celebrities an unfiltered means through which to share their thoughts with the world, you’re bound to end up with some total gems.
Because, often, celebrities will share something that they probably shouldn’t.
And, although they may think that it’s easy to undo an internet mistake by hitting that delete button, we all know that this simply isn’t the case.
And thanks to some nimble-fingered Twitter screenshotters, we get to laugh at these ridiculous, hilarious, and oftentimes basically inexplicable musings way past their desired internet lifespan.
