Infamous deleted celebrity tweets

Twitter is a great place to connect with people and it can be a very useful tool for celebs to promote their new projects and share all kinds of stuff with their fans. However, if not used wisely, the social media network can easily turn against you and these stars have experienced it. Check out some of the most controversial deleted celebrity tweets.

50 Cent

50 Cent Launches His SMS Audio Headphones







The rapper faced an intense backlash when he tweeted out that one of his fans looked autistic: “yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic,” “I don’t want no special ed kids on my time line follow somebody else.”









Amid escalating violence between Palestine and Israel, the singer inserted herself in the international drama by tweeting “#FreePalestine.” Eight minutes later, the pop star deleted her statement and followed it with the less controversial comment: “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israel-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?…”

Jason Biggs








Jason Biggs used lousy judgment when he took to Twitter to make a bad joke about the Malaysia Airlines flight that had been tragically shot-down over Ukraine: “Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?” After setting off a social media firestorm, the Orange Is the New Black star deleted his tweets.

Oprah Winfrey

29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival - Montecito Award - Oprah Winfrey







Oprah Winfrey’s attempt at luring more viewers to her struggling OWN network (owned by Neilsen) was in vain. Shortly after tweeting “Everyone who can please turn to OWN especially if you have a Nielsen box,” the media mogul was asked by Nielsen to deleted the message. “I removed the tweet at the request of Nielsen. I intended no harm and apologize for the reference.”

Ashton Kutcher








Ashton tweeted, “How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste,” apparently before knowing that the firing of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno followed an alleged child-abuse scandal involving his former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Kutcher later apologized for his ignorance: “As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.”

Denise Richards








The actress clearly thought she was DM-ing a close friend when she tweeted out her personal phone number for all the Twitter users to see. “ok number is changed!! won’t make that mistake again,” she tweeted, but not before she received thousands of phone calls from fans.

Juliette Lewis








Lewis posted this Tweet after watching Lana Del Rey on Saturday Night Live: “Wow, watching this ‘singer’ on SNL is like watching a 12-year-old in their bedroom when they’re pretending to sing and perform #signofourtimes”. She later deleted the tweet and posted: “I woke up singing a @LanaDelRey song! Such great haunting melodies! Regardless of my own taste LIVE she’s a #FreshandYummy songwriter.Period”

Kim Kardashian

The Kardashians







Weeks after signing a pledge to end gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the reality star took to Twitter to post (then delete) a photo of a diamond-encrusted handgun. Probably not the smartest move in this case.

Alec Baldwin

After being told by a flight attendant to put away his phone while sitting on the runway, Alec Baldwin launched a multi-tweet attack that he subsequently deleted when he took down his account. “September 11th was a horrific day in the airline industry, yet in the wake of that event, I believe carriers and airports have used that as an excuse to make the air travel experience as inelegant as possible,” he tweeted. He also wrote: “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950s find jobs as flight attendants.”
