13 Celebrity Liars Who Got Caught On Social Media
There are a lot of things that the internet gets riled up about. These days it’s important to be careful about what you say and that especially applies to the celebrities. Unfortunately, not all celebrities are great at managing their social media accounts. From some celebrities flat out lying about their lifestyle to photoshopping a thigh gap in their Instagram pictures.
Based on this list, there is no level that a celebrity would stop to lie about anything. Unfortunately for them, some dedicated fans called them out and started a mass argument amongst other fans and supporters. Below is but a short list out of the multitude of lies that celebrities have said over the years and got called out for.
Bow Wow – I Own A Private Jet, Believe Me
May 2017, the artist formerly known as Lil’ Bow Wow snapped a shot of a private jet and sent it to his Instagram followers. Along with a car in the picture, he had the caption “Travel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Let’s gooo. I promise to bring yall the hottest show EVER. May 25th on @wetv.”
Something must’ve been wrong with his “private jet” or he made a bare face lie because while he posted that, a fan took a picture of him hopping onto a commercial flight to NYC at the time. The fan snapped that shot and posted it to Twitter without the celebrity knowing.
Shortly after that, the truth came out and the unnecessary lie sprang the #BowWowChallenge. This challenge embraces the ways in which everyone can put an effort to make their lives look more glamorous on social media.
Khloé Kardashian – The Buyer Of Baked Goods
In an attempt to connect with more people, Khloé Kardashian took a bold step to appear as a baker. One Thanksgiving, she snapped a shot of three pies and claimed that she was slaving away all day making these pies to her Instagram followers. The picture captured a pumpkin, pecan, and cherry pie with the following caption:
“I am sooooo proud of myself lol can I say that??? I filmed on a tripod, in my kitchen a lot of me baking and prepping for today so I will have that up on my app soon!!! I love testing myself and seeing what I can accomplish and actually make successfully! Now let’s pray it tastes as great as they look! This monkey bread is going to be so f—ing bomb ????????”
TMZ found the picture and did some digging. It didn’t take long for them to find out that the pies weren’t made by Khloé Kardashian, but by someone else. It seems that Khloé placed an order to the Sweet Lady Jane bakery in Los Angeles and went to the store to pick them up. But before she picked them completely, she put together a little photo shoot to give the impression she was slaving away in the kitchen for these pies.
Kim Kardashian – The Thirst For Attention Is Real
In July 2015, Kim Kardashian was thirsty for more comments and likes on her posts. In an attempt to garner attention she posted a picture of herself clad in a bikini to lure people into her thirst trap.
The problem is that she was being too transparent about the whole thing that the lie got more attention than the actual picture. In order to cover up that her post was a trap, she thought to lie that her own kid – North – took the picture while she was playing on Kim’s phone several months ago.
For sure, the Kardashians generally post flattering pictures of themselves, so why lie about this one in particular? Not to mention just how literate can a toddler be to go onto Instagram and scroll through months of pictures before landing on this one? It’s highly suspicious and outright weird.
Kris Jenner – The Photoshop Disaster Master
There have been a few Kardashians appearing on this list, but this one takes the cake out of them all. This one wasn’t about pie or attention, but attempting to look nice. In this particular lie, Kris Jenner wanted the picture with her and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay to look nice.
Apparently nice for her was photoshopping her face and Ramsay’s face beyond belief. When looking at Ramsay’s Instagram, you can see the differences easily. Not only was the picture zoomed in and brighter on Kris’s post, but Ramsay’s face looked like a melted version of himself. It’s really weird.
Rita Ora – A Woman Who Can Do Everything But Can’t Get Enough Retweets
Singer, actress, and judge in The Voice and X Factor. She’s an unstoppable force. Right? Well apparently not, based on a tweet she sent out on Halloween 2014.
In a spur of the moment campaign, Rita wanted to hype up her new music album by sending out a tweet that said that if the tweet got 100,000 retweets, she’d release her new track. Well, the campaign flopped with the tweet only getting a little over 1,000 retweets.
Realizing the stunt didn’t work, Rita Ora backtracked with a new tweet later that day. The tweet claimed her account got hacked and that “somebody” was threatening to release her new music.
Okay Rita… We get it.
Soulja Boy – Make Fake Dollar Bills Rain
On July 2014, Soulja Boy posted on Instagram a massively misleading picture. The picture in question showed large stacks of dollar bills that gave people the impression that the royalty checks from the ‘superman that ho’ song were alive and well.
But as it turned out, those bills were fake as hell. Upon closer inspection, one eagle-eyed fan noticed those bills were actually printed on blank white paper. After he was called out on it and followed by hundreds of other comments, the post was taken down. He knew that the bills were fake and they were part of a music video serving as props.
Lindsay Lohan – The Butt And Thighs That Warp Reality
In March 2013, Lindsay Lohan released a picture that got the internet’s ire. The picture itself was simply her posing for a shot. However one look at her butt and thighs and one would notice the cabinet, wall, and floor curving and warping.
It was 2013 and people knew that her butt and thighs didn’t bend reality. Instead, Lindsay photoshopped those particular areas and this was an obvious indicator of that. Clearly, the photoshop work was awkward and Lindsay hadn’t quite mastered her photoshop app of choice then.
Roseanne Barr – Insomnia Makes You Racist
On May 2018, Roseanne Barr got fired from her ABC show Roseanne Barr for tweeting racist comments about Democrat Valerie Jarrett. Even after Barr was fired, she continued to double down by lying that she was taking medication called Ambien.
As it turns out, Ambien is a prescription drug that’s normally used in insomnia treatment. As soon as people found out – which didn’t take long – they were quick to call that out. To many people, Ambien has never nor ever made anyone racist.
Donald Trump – The Millions Of Illegal Voters
No amount of fake news can bury the fact that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in the 2016 election. With nearly 3 million votes ahead of Trump, Clinton was clearly the preferred choice from the masses.
But despite this fact, now President Trump was confident that he won both the Electoral College and the popular vote as stated in a November 2016 tweet. That tweet caught mass attention from Twitter users, talk show hosts, comedians, and news publications all over, quickly debunking that and showing it was a bare faced lie.
Britney Spears – The Digital Corn Is Too Good To Be True
On January 2016, Britney Spears got wrapped in a lie revolving around the strangest thing: corn. On her instagram she posted a picture of corn, stating how good it was and that it’s too good to be true. She was definitely right about one of those things.
As it turned out, a Twitter user didn’t believe her and quickly found the original source of the picture. It was the same picture that you can find on recipe100.com of grilled Mexican corn.
Bella Thorne – The Faux Fur Coat That Was Actually Real Fur
On March 2016, celebrity Bella Thorne posted a picture sporting an outfit she thought was Instagram worthy. Instead of people noting her overall “tomboy” look, most gravitated towards the fur jacket. As soon as people said it looked like real fur, Throne doubled down and said the jacket was faux fur.
Unfortunately for her, quick witted and devoted internet detectives tracked the jacket down and found it on the Harrods website. The particular jacket Throne was wearing was not only $1,700 dollars – way more than faux fur jacket would be – it was clearly made out of animal fur. From the description of this Alice + Olivia jacket: “made of genuine rabbit and arctic fox fur from China.”
Post Malone – Conflicting Emotions Over Faith
Post Malone and Justin Bieber seem to be close and all around great friends. That much was clear when Malone has stated that Bieber is “a f*cking awesome, great dude.” But despite his emotions, it seems like the rapper has conflicting views about Bieber’s religion and the church he goes to.
In an interview in 2017, Malone stated that Bieber became suddenly highly religious. It felt rather cult-like and Bieber allegedly gave $10 million dollars to his church Hillsong. Malone also implied the church had a gold roof from the amount of money that was donated.
That statement seemed wildly distorted as Hillsong’s owner, Carl Lentz, went on record to say Bieber never gave that much money before. He also argued Post Malone is rather reckless to make that remark, especially for someone who never went to Hillsong.
All you need to do is pay a visit there and you’d notice the Hillsong church isn’t a church at all nor does it have a golden roof or ceiling.
Justin Bieber – Renting Out A Jet Like A Baller
In Bieber’s defense, he didn’t outright lie. However he did distort the truth a little bit. On Christmas Day 2014, Bieber posted to Instagram a selfie with his wrinkle-inducing facial expression. He took this shot in a jet and implied that the private jet was a little Christmas gift to himself. A jet that he can have. And hold forever.
Well it didn’t take long for the truth to come out as TMZ did some digging and found that the jet was actually rented out for Christmas. Apparently Bieber was using it as a “really expensive Uber.”
