Top 10 Celebrities Who Treat Their Fans Terribly
10. Cameron Diaz
Cameron has a reputation for being totally rude to her fans. She is notoriously known for refusing to sign autographs or pose for photographs. Just last year she was caught on camera while promoting her film, Sex Tape, when a fan asked for an autograph and she refused saying, “If I did it for you I’d have to do it for everyone”.
9. Britney Spears
When she was popular, she was always appreciative of her fans. But in the past few years, past her public breakdown she has refrained from addressing them, so much so that she wouldn’t even allow them to touch her.
8. Lea Michele
Lea is famous only because of her role on the FOX show Glee and got some media attention when her boyfriend and co-star died of a drug overdose. She gained popularity as a rude celebrity when she refused to sign an autograph for a young actor Hailee Steinfeld, who broke into tears afterwards.
7. Leonardo DiCaprio
Hollywood heart-throb Leonardo is another celebrity who has a reputation famous for being rude to his fans as well. He has refused from signing autographs stating that he won’t sign autographs or pose for pictures unless he is paid for it.
6. Jennifer Lopez
JLo wrote Jenny From the Block that is about how down to earth she is despite being a filthy rich celeb. But there are constant talks of her being a ‘mean bitch’, with claims that she treats her helpers with no respect. She has reportedly insulted a stewardess for her ‘cheap shoes’ when she couldn’t make the star an espresso. She has been known to leave meager $5 tips, firing maids that asked for her autographs and her insane list of requests when someone hires her.
5. Kim Kardashian
She is just famous for being famous. Apart from that she is one of the leads in a reality TV show and married to a famous artist and performer. She made headlines when her voice mail to ex-husband Kris Humphries went live, wherein she called her fans imbeciles and nobodies. She refers to the same imbeciles and nobodies that tune in to her show and keep the ratings soaring high.
4. Kanye West
The famous artist and performer we spoke of in Kim’s column; the one and only, Kanye West. He’s known to blow off fans and people he doesn’t want to be with often. He’s assaulted paparazzi for trying to take pictures of him at the airport and also blown some fans off at the Super Bowl when asked to pose for pictures. Calls himself a ‘Genius’ and expects people to buy his new range of shoes called Yeezy. Good luck with that Kanye.
3. Gwyneth Paltrow
She is known to be one of the hardest actors to work with. They say she is rude, snobbish and very annoying, and an instance that made it pretty clear that she is highly insensitive, when she spoke about working mothers saying, “It’s much harder for me. I feel like I set it up in a way that makes it difficult… I think it’s different if you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening… I think to have a regular job and be a regular mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”. She was cited by the people as being close-minded.
2. Chris Brown
Chris Brown assaulted a fan who photobombed him while he was posing for a photograph with some female fans. He went on to punch the fellow and was later charged with misdemeanor assault, for which he went to jail and then rehab.
1. Justin Beiber
Views make a YouTube star and Bieber’s case is a shining example. He owes these views to his fans, but he is now famously known not for being a performer but for his notoriety and rudeness towards his fans. He has reportedly spit on fans, peed in buckets, insulted fans by calling names, refused to sign autographs, arrived very late for his shows and driven recklessly under the influence of alcohol. He definitely takes the cake when it comes to stars treating fans terribly.
