12 Of The Worst Times Celebrities Found The Need To Post On Social Media This Year

Somewhere, someone's social media manager is screaming.

Content warning: Some brief mentions of sexual assault. 

1. When Nicki Minaj said that she wouldn't receive the COVID vaccine because her cousin's friend's testicles swelled following the shot.

My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied

FWIW, vaccines are safe!

2. When Sia received backlash for the depiction of autism in her movie Music and tweeted, "Maybe you’re just a bad actor" at one actor with autism who suggested that the film should have had more autism representation.

3. When Michael Che posted a joke that made fun of the abuse Simone Biles faced from Larry Nassar on his Instagram story.

4. When The Cosby Show actor Phylicia Rashad tweeted to celebrate Bill Cosby's release from prison: "FINALLY!!!!"

5. When Bernie Sanders tweeted, "We demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share," and Elon Musk — one of said extremely wealthy — inexplicably tweeted back, "I keep forgetting that you're still alive."

@SenSanders I keep forgetting that you’re still alive

6. When Chrissy Teigen lamented being in the "cancel club" after resurfaced tweets showed her telling Courtney Stodden to kill themself when they were a teenager.

7. While not quite a post, when Carrie Underwood liked an anti-mask tweet filled with COVID misinformation.

8. When Demi Lovato tweeted that they were "in the studio working on something special" following the attempted coup in the Capitol at the beginning of the year.

THIS IS WHY I POST AS MUCH AS I DO. THIS IS WHY I CARE. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN ANY FUCKING MORE. I’m angry, embarrassed and ashamed. I’m in the studio working on something special after today’s assault on democracy. #impeachtrumptonight

9. When Hilaria Baldwin kept posting to say that she was culturally "fluid" — months after she was accused of faking being Spanish.

10. When Bella Thorne defended Armie Hammer after allegations of sexual abuse started to surface.

11. When Aaron Rodgers changed his profile picture to his toe after complaining about "disinformation" surrounding his COVID diagnosis — while he himself had spread ample misinformation about COVID-19.

12. Finally, literally all of Piers Morgan's timeline.

Larry King was a hero of mine until we fell out after I replaced him at CNN & he said my show was ‘like watching your mother-in-law go over a cliff in your new Bentley.’ (He married 8 times so a mother-in-law expert) But he was a brilliant broadcaster & masterful TV interviewer.
