It all started when Reddit user u/hugocaldera6 asked the internet: "Which celebrity has blocked you on social media and why?" Here are some of the top-voted responses:

1. "Gordon Ramsay. I was 13 and in a dumb group chat with my friends on Twitter. Someone in it was followed by him, so they added him to it. He ended up blocking half of us (rightfully, TBH). Also, I messaged him asking if I could be on MasterChef because I could make good ramen noodles, and I think that also caused it."

2. "Kelly Ripa. The best part is I worked for her studio at ABC for years and was never caught trolling her. She is actually a pretty decent human being, but has made life annoying at times."

I tweeted at him three times back in 2018 about being excited for, and then how much I liked, Eighth Grade and I only found out he blocked me after I saw everyone sharing his announcement for his new show 😭😭. Broke my heart, I love his work. I bought his poetry book."

12. "Jeffree Star once blocked me on MySpace because I kept leaving comments on his page saying things like, 'Hey man, great party last night!' to get random fans of his to send me friend requests.

13. "Jameela Jamil. She kept apologizing for a past insensitive thing she said about a group of people. After the fourth or fifth time, I said something to the effect of, 'We get it. You don’t have to keep apologizing.' She said, 'Fuck off,' and blocked me."
