What a year.

Perhaps it's just me but, in hindsight, 2020 was never going to be a smooth year for a lot of celebs.

And all it took was a pandemic to make them seem even more out of touch.

So, here are just some of the worst celeb fails from this year:

1. First, when director Tristram Shapeero forgot to mute himself on a Zoom audition with Lukas Gage and could be heard saying, "These poor people live in these tiny apartments."

psa if youre a shit talking director make sure to mute ur shit on zoom mtgings

2. When Kim Kardashian wouldn't stop posting about her 40th birthday party on a private island:

After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.

3. When Kendall Jenner threw a huge birthday party, which she apparently asked people not to post about on social media. Obviously, this did not go over well:

4. When Vanessa Hudgens posted a coronavirus rant on Instagram, in which she said, "People are gonna die, which is terrible, but like, inevitable?":

7. When Lana Del Rey decided to drag artists like Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Beyoncé:

8. And when Lana Del Rey appeared to wear a mesh face mask at a Barnes & Noble:


Lana said that the mask had plastic sewn on the inside.

9. When the Chainsmokers' "socially distanced" concert was anything but:

10. When Scott Disick and Brody Jenner promoted apps that used filters to change their race:

11. When Bella Thorne started a ton of controversy over her OnlyFans page — and her subsequent apology:

I wanted to bring attention to the site, the more people on the site the more likely of a chance to normalize the stigmas, And in trying to do this I hurt you. I have risked my career a few times to remove the stigma behind sex work, porn, and the natural hatred people spew...

12. When Chet Hanks, son of Tom Hanks, wouldn't stop speaking in a fake Jamaican accent:

13. When Evangeline Lilly posted on Instagram saying that she wasn't socially distancing:

14. When Madi from The Bachelor accidentally left a fan comment on her own post:

15. When Chris Pratt encouraged people to vote in "the most consequential vote in the history of mankind" for his movie Onward at the People’s Choice Awards:

16. When Robert Downey Jr. photoshopped Tom Holland out of his post in defense of Chris Pratt being dubbed the "Worst Chris":

17. When Britney Spears burned down her gym:

18. Finally, when a bunch of celebs sang "Imagine" on "day six" of quarantine.
