Celebrities are people too. Sometimes big stars seem larger than life, but truthfully they are human just like us and more often than not some of them are unpleasant. Maybe they had a long day, maybe they’re under a lot of stress, or maybe they just aren’t nice to begin with. Many famous folks are rumored to be downright awful, here are a few with the worst reputations.

Whoopi Goldberg usually comes across a little over it during hosting The View, so it may be no surprise to some that she might be a little mean. She was once America’s Sweetheart, but over the years the comedian has revealed herself to be a big standoffish, especially when interacting with fans.
“Who was the ‘meanest’ celeb you ever met” is currently trending on Twitter. One person responded “Whoopi Goldberg swung on me at Ceasar’s palace”. While they did not offer more context, some other people chimed in. One said “The word is, Whoopi Goldberg doesn’t like people in her space so if that’s the reason this person was served up, I ain’t mad at her. LMAO!”
Rosie O’Donnell also said she found Whoopi to be unpleasant after working with her in the past. “Whoopi really didn’t like me” she told Howard Stern after her 2015 exit from The View. She said that after an incident where Whoopi missed a cue to cut to commercial, she began to treat Rosie terrible leading in her leaving the show.
Shaquille O’Neal recently spoke out against mean celebrities and how he no longer wants to associate as one if people continue to be terrible. “Celebrities are crazy, they really are. Don’t call me that anymore. These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”
America’s new favorite daytime talk show host Kelly Clarkson is the epitome of nice, but unfortunately she’s experienced her share of rude and mean celebs throughout her career. During an episode of her show she thanked actress Jennifer Love Hewitt for being nice to her at a time where everyone was mean. She recalls doing press for American Idol during their top 3 and being treated terrible by everyone at the Video Music Awards. Jennifer was the only person who run up to her and showed love, saying she was “rooting” for Clarkson. “That moment stuck with me for 20 years” she said.
Unfortunately not everyone has gotten the memo that being nice gets you further. Long before he spread misinformation at the Rolling Loud festival, Da Baby was gaining a reputation for being a jerk. He has been recorded pushed fans, even roughing up a hotel worker and slapping a woman. Avril Lavigne caught flack for charging fans $400 a meet and greet to then not even make physical contact with them. She made them stand away from her during pictures and didn’t give them a hug or even a high five. Who are some of the worst celebrities you’ve met?
