Being a celebrity can’t always be easy, especially in today’s social media-fueled world. Sometimes things get uncomfortable-like when a celebrity is caught telling a blatant lie. Hardcore fans and haters are totally willing to dig deep into a celeb’s feed to find receipts (and honestly, we have to applaud their sleuthing skills in some cases). After all, everything on the internet is permanent. Celebrities work hard to cultivate their social media persona.
So, it’s always interesting when they get caught in a lie online. Read on to find out about some of the most ridiculous and hilarious instances of celebs being called out on a lie.
Rita Ora got herself into a situation.
She tweet "Dropping my new song Monday if this gets 100,000 retweets".
This is a risky tweet, to begin with. And then she backtracked when she didn’t get as many retweets as she expected.
She said: "By the way, my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I've worked really hard on. Nothing comes out until I'm ready".
Soulja Boy posted a photo with what seemed to be stacks of hundred dollar bills. But look closely and you’ll see that they’re not real.
"I just want my fans to know that yes I was on set shooting a video and they had prop money and I took a picture with it. All my cash is real".
Guess he should have mentioned that in the caption!
She uploaded a video of herself supposedly removing her makeup. She was hyping up Bioré for how it gets all makeup off including waterproof mascara. Well, many said that she didn't even touch her eye with the pad. She posed with a pad with old makeup, and she still had makeup on her face.
If you’re going to advertise something, you should at least put in a little effort.
He shared an epic photo on Instagram of the eclipse in August 2014. If you are a famous person and you take someone's image, you better provide credit for it, otherwise you might find yourself in a toe-curling situation. That is what happened to Diddy. The photographer who actually took the photo called him out. LA-based photographer Cole Younger posted the photo two weeks earlier and pointed out that P. Diddy had used the image without his permission.
In a now-deleted Instagram post from July 2018, Lele Pons proclaimed that she had donated her hair to charity. She captioned the post, "DONATED MY HAIR!!!!" Fans were quick to question the decision given the ponytail was clearly a clump of extensions and the hair was colored. In either case, the hair would not qualify for a donation. She explained that she intended to donate her hair but wasn't aware that color-treated hair couldn't be donated. She continued, "So I'm finding other ways to help those affected by hair loss b/c of cancer. This is still a priority for me."
This Teen Mom 2 was caught lying on social media when she posted a side-by-side photo alleging that the product she was sponsoring had helped her lose weight and tone up. But as her followers noticed, she really just took off her hair, changed her hair, took off her glasses, and pulled up her leggings a bit. The clutter in the background being identical tipped her "fans" off.
Pay close attention to the way the door and floor warp around Lindsay Lohan's thighs and butt in the photo above. It's like one side of the photo is a regular old house and anything past Lindsay's leg is reflected in a fun-house mirror. Around March 2013, Lohan was called out by numerous fans for posting this awkward Photoshop fail.
Clearly, she hasn't quite mastered her Photoshop app of choice.
In May of 2018, Roseanne Barr was fired from the ABC show that bore her name for posting racist things about Democrat Valerie Jarrett on Twitter. As if those offensive remarks weren't enough, Barr kept on tweeting. In fact, she blamed her distasteful comments on Ambien - a prescription drug typically used to treat insomnia.
Many people responded to Barr's blatant falsehood, though. As far as anyone else could tell, Ambien never made anyone be racist.
Despite the fact - the unarguable, decidedly not fake news fact – that Hilary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, Donald Trump refused to accept reality and retreated into the bizarre alternative universe where he has a strong jawline, hair that is real and not terrifying, and where he won both the electoral college and the popular vote. He claimed there were loads of illegal voters who threw themselves behind Hilary in an insane and hysterically defensive tweet.
Post Malone and Justin Bieber seem to be good friends; Malone even calls the Canadian pop star "a f*cking awesome, great dude.” However, the rapper had no qualms badmouthing Bieber's faith. In a 2017 interview, Malone claimed:[Bieber] has gotten super-religious recently. Real culty... [His church, Hillsong] is a total cult. He’s already given them, like, $10 million... It’s nice to support something you believe in, I guess, but people are spending so much money, and God doesn't care that your church has a f*cking gold roof.
Hillsong's Carl Lentz refuted all of Malone's remarks, though. He said:
"I do not know Post Malone and I have no idea why he would say reckless things about our church, which he has never visited. Justin has not given our church 10 million dollars and we do not have gold ceilings. We do not even own a church building".
