Celebrities Forced to Delete These Unreal Tweets
When it comes to connecting with people, celebrities can't get enough of Twitter. Having the ability to easily describe what you're feeling can become addictive. If you let off too much steam, however, you might land yourself in trouble.
These celebrities found themselves tweeting wild things. Some of them are over the top, while others are just plain confusing. And unfortunately for this group, these tweets will live on in the Internet’s memory forever, even though the celebrities deleted the messages from their Twitter accounts.
Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige is one of R&B’s most successful singers, with millions of records sold. But people still try to knock her down. With her 2017 film Mudbound, Blige received some hate from movie fans. Fortunately, her performance gained critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination.
Blige turned to Twitter to acknowledge these angry individuals. "Why is it that people always try to understand estimate my intelligents? They should never do that," the singer tweeted. She wasn't trying to make some clever joke with her spelling. Followers ribbed the superstar for the unexpected blunder.
Singer Rita Ora gained instant success thanks to DJ Fresh's "Hot Right Now." While her debut album dropped in 2012, it took six years to follow up. Fans patiently waited for something from the British singer.
In 2014, she used Twitter to hype up new material on hand. "Dropping my new song Monday if this get 100,000 retweets," Ora tweeted. The tweet only gained around 1,400 retweets before the singer deleted it. "When it's ready we will drop music! Luckily I caught the hacker really quickly and deleted the post," she tweeted the next day.
The one thing Miley Cyrus loves more than music is her father, Billy Ray. His relationship with her mother, Tish, has been a rocky one. The couple filed for divorce on two different occasions. Both instances were because of irreconcilable differences.
Miley was ready to expose a big secret. "@billyraycyrus since you won't reply to my texts I'll give you an hour tell the truth, or I'll tell it for you," Miley tweeted. The tweet included a photo of a woman standing next to Billy Ray. Miley took down the shocking tweet in minutes.
Hours before Super Bowl LIII, rapper 21 Savage was arrested for being in the country illegally. Singer Demi Lovato didn't realize this when she was staring at memes. "So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl," she tweeted.
Lovato felt the backlash from fans and musicians alike. Instead of deleting the tweet, she removed her entire Twitter account. On Instagram, she clarified what caused her to laugh. "The meme I posted/was talking about was of him writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone," she said.
Pop star Taylor Swift is probably the most dominant artist in the music world — aside from maybe Beyonce? With sold-out stadium shows, the Pennsylvania native is the highest-grossing artist out there. Her 2019 album Lover sold several million copies worldwide in its first week.
While most girls have a plethora of makeup, Swift decided to use something unexpected on her face. "I just used a Sharpie as eyeliner in the airplane bathroom," she tweeted back in 2010. At that point, Swift was busy plugging Speak Now. Nearly 10 years later, Swift has probably abandoned using the Sharpie for anything in life.
Jaden Smith is known for some of the most outrageous tweets in the world. While going on a rant about school, Smith made one shocking point. "If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society," he tweeted.
Smith knows something about dropping out. The rapper attended the private school New Village Leadership Academy for five years. Smith left to get homeschooled instead. "School is not authentic because it ends. It's not true, it's not real. Our learning will never end," Smith told The New York Times's T magazine.
In the late '90s, actress Denise Richards turned up the heat in Starship Troopers and The World Is Not Enough. In 2016, she won Best Actress at the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival for A Life Lived. Many people know her from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Sending people private information was difficult when Twitter started. Richards tried to direct message her phone number to her friend, but instead, she publicly tweeted it out. Richards changed her number because of her mistake. "Ok Number is changed!! Won't make that mistake again," she tweeted.
You'll never know what Kanye West will tweet next. The Grammy-winning star has been incredibly vocal over the years. He's also been involved in Twitter drama with rappers such as Snoop Dogg and Drake. Whenever he hits the "Tweet" button, you know it'll be on the blogs in minutes.
One day, West decided to let loose on an incorrect order. "I specifically ordered Persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery," West tweeted. It's not known if the rapper ever got his Persian rug.
Drake Bell and Josh Peck were a successful duo on Nickelodeon's Drake and Josh. When Josh Peck got married, Bell didn't get the memo. As expected, this didn't sit well with him. "When you're not invited to the wedding, the message is clear," Bell tweeted.
The actor/singer wasn't done letting his true feelings show, either. "True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I'll miss ya brotha," he tweeted. Bell deleted the tweets and apologized for his actions. Fortunately, he'll still invite Peck to his own wedding.
Solange followed in her sister Beyonce's footsteps in music. The Georgia native released her debut album Solo Star at 16 years old. After some time, Solange had a trio of albums, including A Seat at the Table. In 2017, she won her first Grammy for Best R&B Performance.
Solange wanted her followers to know about her terrible day. "My thumb itches and my armpits smell like spongebob fever," she tweeted. The fine folks behind SpongeBob SquarePants probably have never heard of this nonexistent epidemic. Thankfully, Solange felt fine immediately after posting the now-deleted tweet.
No one expected CNN anchor Don Lemon and actor Jonah Hill to engage in a Twitter feud. It started when Hill snubbed Lemon during a hotel stay. "Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn't know his name til bellman told me," Lemon tweeted.
Hill fired back at Lemon. "@DonLemonCNN I said hi what do you want me to do move in with you? I was in a hurry," Hill stated. Due to a negative response from fans, Hill took down the tweet. Lemon didn't take Hill's words seriously, though.
In the early 2000s, comedian Kevin Hart appeared in Scary Movie 3 and Soul Plane. Stand-up albums, including Seriously Funny, have aided the Philadelphia native in his rising career. In 2017, he brought home a whopping $32.5 million from his continuing work in film and touring.
Hart decided to share a recent DUI story on social media. "When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test, I said, 'Why waste our time? I'm drunk, man," he tweeted. The comedian perhaps deleted the tweet because he wanted to save it for a live show.
Michael Caine's acting career includes roles in The Italian Job and Get Carter. Caine is one of two actors to earn an Oscar nomination in every decade from the 1960s to the 2000s. He received six nominations with two wins.
In 2012, a story circulated about Caine falling asleep inside a locked attic on a movie set. The actor saw the tabloids and put his foot down. "Just read another story about me being locked in attic, completely false," he tweeted. He removed the tweet, which made people wonder if the stories were actually true.
Oprah Winfrey went from morning talk radio to becoming a household name with The Oprah Winfrey Show. Nearly a decade after its end, the show is still the highest-rated daytime talk show ever created. Women relate to Oprah's intriguing topics.
After starting her channel OWN, Winfrey had some issues with grabbing viewers. "Everyone who can please turn to OWN especially if you have a Nielsen box," she tweeted. Oprah removed the tweet after Nielsen contacted her. "I removed the tweet at the request of Nielsen. I intended no harm and apologize for the reference," Oprah said.
Singer Keyshia Cole has churned out hits since her 2005 debut album The Way It Is. While she has fame, she also worries about her mother Frankie. The Frankie & Neffe star been arrested on multiple instances.
Following her mom's parole violation, Cole thought fans would like to get an update on things. "My assistant just told me they kept my mom today in court for violating her parole. Gotta see what the bail is. Smh. She will never learn," Cole tweeted. As expected, something to do with the legal system is best removed from Twitter.
In 2011, Drake and Common went one on one in a hip-hop feud. Common's 2011 studio album, The Dreamer/The Believer, features the single "Sweet." It is rumored to be an attack on Drake's singing and rapping.
On Twitter, Drake poked fun at the song. "Platinum. Now THAT'S sweet," he tweeted in 2011. This tweet refers to the multi-platinum song "The Motto," which was released weeks before the tweet. Fortunately, both men ended their short-lived feud. "He looked me in my eye and told me, ‘Look, I really respect your music,’" Common told Big Boy's Neighborhood.
Gymnast Aly Raisman turned heads at the 2012 London Olympics. As the captain of the Fierce Five, she showed no mercy. The Massachusetts native won the gold for both team and floor exercise. She also won a bronze medal on the balance beam.

Iconic musician Cher has been rocking the world for nearly six decades. Whether with Sonny & Cher or solo, the California native can bring the intensity. Cher has also acted in movies such as Moonstruck and If These Walls Could Talk.
In 2012, Cher concerned fans by tweeting, "What's going on with my career?" At that point, the singer was finishing her 2013 album Closer to the Truth. She began work on the record in the summer of 2011. Aside from the album, Cher was busy working on her first tour in nine years.
Celebrating 10 million Instagram followers is great. Celebrating the birth of Martin Luther King Jr. is also fine. Combining both things is something Zac Efron thought was a good idea. "I’m grateful for a couple things today: Martin Luther King Jr & 10 million followers on IG," Efron tweeted.
Choosing to mix the two caused a panic amongst Efron's fans. The actor quickly deleted the tweet after it gained traction. "I have nothing but the greatest admiration & respect for MLK. My last post was insensitive & I apologize to anyone who I offended. So sorry," Efron stated.
Fergie helped propel The Black Eyed Peas to stardom when she joined the group in 2001. The California native earned platinum albums and performed in front of packed arenas around the world. As a solo artist, she continued gaining steam with hits such as "Big Girls Don't Cry."
There's no shame in Fergie feeling proud of herself. She's earned her success through her sheer talent. Her way of showcasing this, however, left fans puzzled. The star randomly tweeted, "T-G-I-F, Thank God I'm Fergie," before deleting it. The cheesiness of it was too much to take for fans.
Kim Kardashian is a Twitter extraordinaire with over 62 million followers. With so many people watching, it's hard to make a slip-up. One false misspelling could mean disaster. Fortunately for Kardashian, she's too busy working to read thousands of comments.
When it comes to identical twins, Kardashian had one question to ask. "Do identical twins have the same exact DNA? Like if 1 twin murders someone & leaves their DNA, can the other twin get blamed?" Kardashian asked on Twitter. Many found themselves scratching their heads at what transpired. It makes for great water-cooler talk, though.
Bebe Rexha found fame with Cash Cash's 2013 platinum single "Take Me Home." With numerous songs in the Top 100, the New York City native has everyone's ears. She received a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2018.
Twitter user @Pirate_Queen__ wanted to know where Rexha would go with the help of time travel. In a deleted tweet, she replied, "I would go to Paris 1940s." Unfortunately, this is when German troops invaded Paris during World War II. The singer acknowledged her mistake, though. "Girl, I failed history. I just googled it," she tweeted.
Producer Calvin Harris and singer Taylor Swift dated for over a year before ending things in June of 2016. With Swift getting cozy with actor Tom Hiddleston, Harris felt his heart being ripped out. "Oh boy it’s about to go down," he sadly tweeted.
Harris also blocked Swift and her brother on Twitter. Anyone who questioned his love for Swift also found themselves being blocked. Before deleting the tweet, he proceeded to remove every single picture he had of Swift. Following the situation, Harris has chosen to spread more positivity instead of stooping to those levels.

One day, Durant questioned what he witnessed on The History Channel. "I'm watching the History Channel in the club, and I'm wondering how do these people know what's going on the sun. Ain't nobody ever been," he tweeted. While he deleted the tweet, the star does make a point.
Actress Lindsay Lohan was a Disney Channel mainstay until Mean Girls. The hit 2004 film turned her into an overnight sensation. She's dabbled in music with two studio albums and opened a Greek resort called Lohan Beach House Mykonos.
While working on her Facebook page, Lohan forgot to unlink it from her Twitter account. "Hello, Facebook. Yes, this is actually Lindsay. Welcome to my Facebook page," she tweeted. Fans had a good time telling her it was the wrong social media platform. Fortunately, this is common among those with a plethora of social media accounts.
Dr. Dre's daughter Truly got the chance of a lifetime when she was accepted into USC. With the big college admission scandal in the air, the producer decided to poke fun at those involved. "My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!" he tweeted.

It was retweeted over 5,000 times before being deleted. Bieber, who was 19 at the time, showcased typical teen angst. Many musicians feel frustrated at certain behind-the-scenes situations. Fortunately, his Def Jam debut Purpose continued his ongoing success with 3 million albums sold.
