    IDK why celebs do these anymore...

    This week, Kim Kardashian scolded her kids mid-Instagram Live after they said they hated her viewers.

    It got me thinking about all the other times celebs were chaotic, messy, awkward, problematic, etc. when doing these Lives. So, here are 14 other times IG Lives went horribly, horribly wrong:

    1. When someone asked Adele on the spot what her body count was and she had no clue what it meant:

    NOT SOMEONE ASKING ADELE HER BODY COUNT LMAOOO

    2. When Millie Bobby Brown faked her skincare routine, LMAO:

    You should follow Millie Bobby Brown’s skincare routine of applying nothing to her face. - Deberían seguir la rutina de rostro de Millie Bobby Brown en la que no se pone nada en la cara.

    3. When Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Hailey Bieber went on Live — this was early-ish in the pandemic when a lot of people were unemployed (April 2020) — and talked about how lucky and privileged they were:

    "How blessed are we — a lot of people in this time have a crappy situation. They look at us, and obviously, we've worked hard for where we're at. We can't feel bad for the things we have, but us taking that time to acknowledge that there are people who are struggling is important," Justin said. Kendall nodded along with Justin and said, "Yeah, I think about it all the time."

    4. When Doja Cat accidentally revealed a man in the back of her Instagram Live who called her "babe" and then abruptly ended it:

    5. And when Demi Lovato unknowingly did the same thing on Max Ehrich's Instagram:

    7. When Cardi B went on Live to call out Access Hollywood for a story about her daughter that she said was "clickbait" and then said she wished the writer's mother "catches AIDS":

    "I made the choices I did at the time because I had very limited options," she said after backlash ensued.

    9. When Foodgod asked if he should go live, and people were like, "No, luv":

    14. And lastly, when Lindsay Lohan accused this family in Moscow of trafficking and then tried to "save" a Syrian child refugee and wound up getting punched in the face — all on Live:

    Lindsay Lohan really out here doing anything.... How you gon accuse a family of trafficking (YOU RAN UP ON) with no proof, reach for her kids and then do the “white woman victim noise” when she bop ya ass. & why do I feel like she’s making up a language?

    @lindsaylohan / Via Instagram: @lindsaylohan

    "I'm, like, in shock right now. They were trafficking. I was just, like, so scared. I literally can’t; I don't think I can ever change what I want," she said after getting hit.
