It must be hard to be a celebrity and have strangers monitoring every thing you say and do. I mean, we all say stupid things from time to time— maybe it’s a joke that’s too soon after a sad event, or you promote a stereotype that’s actually kind of racist, or you forget some basic fact you learned in third grade. Luckily when those follies tumble out of our mouths no one has a camera pointed at us. However, when you’re a celebrity and you have one of those silly moments it’s going to live forever as a viral internet sensation. And while we feel bad for celebrities having to deal with this not-so-nice aspect of fame, it does make for some funny reading. The next time you blurt out a truly regrettable quip, thank the powers that be that you weren’t caught on “tape” like these 25 celebrities.
