16 Times Celebs Posted Instagram Pics That Completely Backfired

Diply 30 Apr 2018

As a celebrity, it must be pretty terrifying to share pictures of your life on Twitter or Instagram to millions of followers who all have strong opinions. Seriously, fans aren't afraid to hold back.

Sometimes an innocent post completely backfires, and the celeb never sees it coming.

1. It's no secret that celebrities endorse products on Instagram for a bit of extra cash.

But fans were quick to call out Naomi Campbell after she very blatantly copied and pasted the caption without proofreading it first.

She quickly edited the caption but not before fans grabbed a screenshot of the mistake and roasted her for it. Oops!

2. Scott Disick made the same mistake while he was promoting Skinny Tea on his Instagram.

Just like Naomi, he quickly corrected the error and deleted the part where he's being told what to write.

You would think that when you have over 20 million followers, you'd double-check your captions in the first place.

3. Back on April Fool's Day in 2016, Gwen Stefani posted a picture of an ultrasound with the caption, "It's a girl  ❤️

The only thing is that fans were not impressed with the joke.

"Not funny at all, sister. I've been struggling with infertility going on 2 years and using the joy of expecting a child as a prank is down right tasteless. I love you but this was way off base," one fan wrote.

4. Lorde typically flies under the radar as far as celebrity drama goes, but after she posted a photo of a bathtub with the caption "And iiii will always love you," she found herself in some hot water.

Fans were angry because Whitney Houston (who famously covered the song) had died in a bathtub back in 2012.

Lorde ended up deleting the photo and apologizing for the innocent mistake.

5. Back in 2016, Brie Larson shared a throwback photo, captioning it, "I touched a Dolphins belly while sporting a trucker hat in 2004."

She had to later edit the caption to clarify that she doesn't support animal cruelty because of the number of people shaming her for supporting dolphins being held in captivity.

She even posted a second photo, further apologizing for the photo.

"We should be concerned about the well being of all animals. Yes, Dolphins. Along with every other creature. There are problems with animals in captivity," she wrote. "I apologize if the photo appeared to endorse animal cruelty. I don't believe any living thing deserves miss treatment."

6. Kylie Jenner shared photos of her attending Coachella a few weeks ago, and fans were less than impressed.

"kylie jenner’s at coachella like she doesn’t have a whole newborn at home," one person tweeted.

Apparently, new mothers aren't allowed to have any fun, and several people felt that she should be at home with her daughter, Stormi.

7. The adorable Mandy Moore shared pictures from her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

But fans were too focused on her body and even had the audacity to comment that she was "too skinny" and the images were "photoshopped".

Mandy ended up editing her caption, writing, "I am 5’10 and a size 6. I have NEVER photoshopped pictures. That’s not what I’m about. If you’re going to be rude about people’s bodies, go elsewhere."

8. Hilary Duff shared a photo of her and her son at Disneyland, but mommy shamers slammed her for kissing her child on the lips.

Hil was quick to fire back in a post, telling anyone bothered by the picture to "go ahead and click a quick unfollow with your warped minds and judgement," she wrote.

9. Even Beyoncé can't post a photo without getting shamed.

She had just given birth and shared a photo of herself drinking alcohol.

People were quick to jump in with their opinions about her potentially breastfeeding and drinking.

"You know how long you're going to have to pump b4 that's out your system?" one person commented, as if it was any of their business.

10.  Mariah Carey shared an adorable pic of her and her kids on what seemed like an innocent movie night.

But people came for her because her 4-year-old son was using a pacifier. I honestly wish I was joking.

11. Reese Witherspoon shared a photo of a breakfast for her toddler, but it landed her in trouble.

Instagram | @reesewitherspoon

"Sugar and more sugar…oh, and one piece of fruit…That will definitely get the toddler moving," one follower wrote.

As someone who had a venti iced coffee and a donut for breakfast this morning, I'm offended that people can't appreciate a sugary breakfast from time to time.

12. People found that this photo of Chrissy Teigen and her daughter riding a slide was soooo dangerous.

Honestly, can we just let Chrissy live?

13. Jana Kramer was shamed for sharing a photo of the baby food she was buying.

Instagram | @kramergirl

Because she was buying the store-bought food and not making it herself, she was suddenly a bad mother. Can you even believe???

Thankfully, she had an army of fans clap back and let it be known that she has the right to feed her kids whatever she wants to.

14. Kristin Cavallari shared a picture of her sons at the beach, but people were legitimately angry because her son appeared to be "too thin."

"Kid looks like a skeleton....sad," one user had the audacity to write.

15. People came for Julia Stiles after she shared a picture of her carrying her baby in a baby carrier.

Instagram | @missjuliastiles

Fans accused her of "smothering" her child and shamed her for wearing the carrier improperly.

Julia responded to the haters, and wrote, "What was supposed to be a shout out of products I like, suddenly becomes an invitation to comment on my baby, and my ability as a mother. That's the internet for you."
