25 People Blocked By A Celeb Explain What Happened

Published 1 month ago

The block option on social media can be pretty handy when you want to get rid of someone’s online presence. But how often are you the one getting blocked instead of doing the blocking? 

Redditors recently discussed what they did that got them blocked online by no less than celebrities. You’d expect famous people to have thick skin and be used to some negative feedback but having millions of fans doesn’t mean you have to put up with someone who did something you don’t like. So scroll below to read what led to someone in the spotlight giving the virtual boot to ordinary folks like you and me.

#1 Not a celebrity, but the Head and Shoulders twitter account blocked me because I tweeted them every day for a month asking why they don’t have a foot wash line called “Knees and Toes”. I still don’t understand why they don’t!

I made comments about how she’s happy to slap “Chemicals” on her face in the way of her make up brand, and inject chemicals under her skin for her ink in her tattoos, and happily be paid to do this for others.

Yet the “Chemicals” in the whooping cough vaccine for her baby was unsafe and I called her a bad mum.

I was blocked within minutes and then she released some statement on her Instagram about being a “New” mum who makes mistakes.

Anyway, Shes a narcissistic small timer big time wannabe.

#13 Ellie Goulding was talking about how meat was bad for you on instagram. I — being the insufferable teenage debate brain I was — wrote an entire essay explaining why she was wrong, the benefits of eating meat, how morality is based on more than someone’s diet etc. I spent about half an hour constructing it. She simply replied *“You have too much time on your hands”* and blocked me. She wasn’t wrong lol.

#17 Way back I got blocked by a local weatherman.  He was wearing a blazer that was super wrinkled.  So I tweeted to him and the station that he should’ve ironed his blazer.  The next time he came on screen, he wore a different blazer but it was an ugly bright yellow mustard color.  So I tweeted, I said iron your blazer not put on an uglier one.  Got blocked after that, haha. .

Knowing he saw it delights me to this day.

#25 One day about 25 years ago, Steve buscemi was walking around horatio street down in greenwhich village. He was talking on a cell phone when he stepped onto the street to cross to the other side. As soon as he stepped onto the street, it was clear that he had blocked the path of an oncoming bicycle.

Steve buscemi was hit by a teenager on a bicycle. That teenager was me. He probably doesn’t remember, it wasn’t a particularly hard hit. Now whenever I see him on screen, I have to let everyone around know that I hit him that one time down in the village.

Also, it was the first time I ever considered the dangers of cellphones. I can’t remember the exact year but I remember the knicks were freakin awesome. Ewing, Starks… maybe ‘94.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
