Lindsay Lohan Posts Angry Tweet About Amanda Bynes: Five Annoying Celeb Twitter Users
Lindsay Lohan took to her Twitter Sunday to do something groundbreaking -- make a valid point. Lohan is incensed that she went to prison for her driving offenses but Amanda Bynes hasn't. "Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" she asked.
Though Lohan's Twitter ramblings are often bizarre, her argument holds weight. After a DUI, numerous fender-benders, reckless driving and smoking pot in her car, Bynes has yet to face substantial legal penalties.
Last Tuesday, TMZ published photos of the star smoking marijuana in her car and on Friday, the site released a video of Bynes driving with a suspended license and hitting the back of another car. The Los Angeles Times reported that the 26-year-old eventually had her car seized by L.A. police, and TMZ reported on Monday that she has entered rehab. (Probably a good move.)
Lohan's tweet follows a string of bizarre and erratic posts that the Huffington Post has termed "puzzling." Within the past year Lohan has tweeted about everything from passing out in a hotel room during a shoot to missing her court-ordered community service at an L.A. morgue.
The troubled actress is one many stars with obnoxious and annoying Twitter feeds.
Here are five of the most annoying celeb tweeters.
You know you’re a bad celebrity tweeter when your tweets make headlines for being ridiculous.
From supporting Chris Brown to posting photos of herself looking drugged out, Lohan has used the site as a means of publicizing some of her most idiotic statements.
Last week the New York Post reported that Lohan failed to make it to the set of “Scary Movie 5,” in which she has a small role. According to the outlet, the studio was forced to send a private plane for the starlet. Apparently Lohan took this to mean that she was “fighting” for her “dreams.”
She posted; “Birkin. Mac Computer. Chanel and a jet. Never quit fighting to live your dreams. God Bless.”
The post was accompanied by a photo of the pricey Birkin bag and her laptop inside the private jet.
But alas, it was merely the second most vapid tweet to come from Lohan this month. The first called for President Barack Obama to cut taxes for millionaires.
“BarackObama we also need to cut (taxes) for those that are listed on Forbes as 'millionaires' if they are not, you must consider that as well.”
In Dec. 2011, 47-year old Charlie Sheen sent 18-year-old Justin Bieber a private message that contained his phone number. There was just one problem—Sheen accidentally posted the message for his 5.5 million followers to see. The Hollywood Reporter called the blunder one of the Worst Twitter Gaffes of 2011.
He has also used the site to attack “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre.
In March 2011 he posted: “Just got invited to do the Nancy Grace show… I’d rather go on a long road trip with Chuck Lorre in a ’75 Pacer….”
Though he announced in July that he was leaving the site for good, by August he had reactivated his account. We’re sure it has something to do with the fact that he has over 8 million followers hanging onto his every word or the fact that he reportedly holds the Guinness World Record for “Fastest Time to Reach 1 Million Followers” on Twitter. In March 2011, Mashable and Entertainment Weekly reported on Sheen’s purported achievement.
For Kim Kardashian, Twitter is a platform for her to talk about the subject most important to her—herself. As if a reality show, quickie wedding, and sultry magazine spreads didn’t get her enough attention, she has made a habit of tweeting nonsensical observations and half naked photos of herself.
The only thing sadder than Kardashian having 16 million Twitter followers is the fact that she tweets things like “EWW Im at lunch, the woman at the table next 2 me is breast feeding her baby w no coverup then puts baby on the table and changes her diaper."
Kim K has also posted what the Daily Caller has referred to as one of the “dumbest” tweets of 2011. In an attempt to get her brother Rob Kardashian to get the most votes on “Dancing With the Stars,” the reality star tweeted, “OMG, I have @ JustinBieber’s phone #!!!! 800 8683402! CALL HIM! He’s taking calls for the next hour!!!”
According to In This Economy, Kardashian frequently mentions product names on Twitter for a hefty paycheck. The site reports that the 31-year-old pulled in $3.5 million in 2010 for tweeting about QuickTrim at least eight times a week.
This means that the world has been subjected to such posts as, “Have you guys seen QuickTrim at CVS? It’s now available at all their pharmacies!”
In Nov. 2011, Ashton Kutcher managed to avoid knowing anything about the heavily publicized Jerry Sandusky child molestation case. An assistant football coach at Penn State, Sandusky was accused of molesting eight boys. It was later learned that the University’s main football coach, Joe Paterno, was aware of Sandusky’s actions (which occurred over a 15 year period) but did nothing to stop them.
Following Sandusky’s arrest, Paterno lost his position at the school.
Kutcher, took to his Twitter to express his dissatisfaction with the University’s decision.
"How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."
Kutcher immediately followed tweet retraction protocol. He removed the offending comment, posted an extensive apology, and took a tweeting timeout.
"Had no idea, thought it was a football thing," said Kutcher. "Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet! Didn't have full story. #admitwhenyoumakemistakes.”
"As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case," he added.
"As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won't happen again."
But the damage was done. Kutcher was blasted by several outlets. Yahoo news referred to his tweet as ‘idiotic” and Saturday Night Live spoofed the error.
The actor later posted a photo of himself next to a sign that read, “I’m with stupid.”
Today Kutchers twitter is mostly comprised of bland posts such as “On average Americans eat 18 acres of pizza a day. http://bit.ly/PUjEJy #fact.”
If only his 2011 moment of self-reflection had prompted him to cease tweeting altogether.
After multiple declarations that he was done with Twitter, Alec Baldwin continues to share his musings with the world. He has used his account to immaturely attack the likes of Andre Miller and Daily News editor Colin Myler.
In June, the “30 Rock” star took to Twitter to defend himself after he was accused of punching a Daily News photographer in the face.
"Photographer almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning," Baldwin tweeted. "Ever since that English Queen took over the Daily News, they lie like the Post," alluding to Myler.
In Sept. 2011, Baldwin wasn’t too happy with the service at a New York City Starbucks and made sure the world knew about it.
E! reported that the 54-year-old tweeted: "Starbucks on 93 and B'way. Uptight Queen barista named JAY has an attitude problem."
That’s right, he used Twitter to publicly humiliate a $9 Starbucks employee.
But his worst offense remains his rank against United Airlines. In Dec. 2011, Baldwin was booted from one of their flights for refusing to turn off his cellphone.
Using the hashtag #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt, Baldwin let the flight attendant responsible for kicking him off the plane have it. He accused her of engaging in a "soviet level of enforcement of the rules" and compared the airline staff to "catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's.”
