5. Azealia Banks
Over the past couple of years, Azealia Banks has been better known for her scathing comments than her music. When it came to Bill Cosby’s sexual assault allegations, Banks pulled no punches by tweeting, “them b**ches frontin’ like they wasn’t trying to get some of that pudding pop!!!!” In 2016, she was removed from a music festival in Europe after calling Zayn Malik a “curry scented b**ch.”
The following person nearly had his entire music career crash because of a series of tweets.
4. CeeLo Green
There’s a reason why CeeLo Green has to change his name to Gnarly Davidson. In 2014, the artist was sentenced to three years probation after pleading no contest to giving ecstasy to women in 2012. He thought it would be a great idea to tweet, “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent.” While he quit The Voice that same year to avoid being fired, he pleaded to get his job back, but it fell on deaf ears. He has made one-off appearances on the program, though.
3. Scott Baio
Actor Scott Baio’s acting career hasn’t been the same since portraying Dr. Jack Stewart on the CBS drama Diagnosis: Murder. In 2010, he got severe backlash for tweeting, “Taxes are DONE…That should feed, house & provide medical for a few lazy non working people at my expense. Have a great Monday!” While he did find a starring role in the sitcom See Dad Run after that tweet was posted, the show was canceled due to poor ratings.
2. Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen has said some outrageous things in his career, but a comment about his former boss got him the boot. In 2011, the actor was interviewed by radio host Alex Jones when he went on a tirade about Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre. Sheen called the producer “a stupid, stupid little man and a p*ssy punk,” which led to CBS canceling the last four episodes of season eight and firing the star.
The final person on the list had their social media pages suspended because of their actions.
1. Tila Tequila
Former TV personality Tila Tequila caused a firestorm when she posted a blog about her love for Adolf Hitler. This weird infatuation spilled out on her social media sites, which caused Facebook to shut down her account in 2013. While she blamed her actions on depression and alcohol, it didn’t stop her from tweeting, “You know what will help Asians earn respect? An Asian version of Adolf Hitler… I want that person to be me; I want to save the world from this Zionist disease.” In November 2016, Twitter suspended her account after she posted a picture of herself doing the Nazi salute with the caption “Seig [sic] heil!”
