CELEBRITY Social Media
With the rise of social media, fans have the opportunity to feel even "closer" to their favorite celeb. But unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and confuse fandom with friendship. Occasionally they push it so far that they manage to get on some celebrity's nerves, who prove to have feelings just like your average Jane and John Doe. Sometimes the best way to answer to abusive or hateful comments on social media is by simply blocking your detractors. Model Chrissy Teigen for instance, got blocked by none other than the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump. After roasting him for nine years, Trump—who has never really been a fan of hers either—got tired of Teigen's trolling behavior and blocked her after she tweeted "lol no one likes you." "After 9 years of hating Donald J. Trump telling him 'lol no one likes you' was the straw," the model tweeted. But John Legend's wife is definitely not the only social media user who got blocked over a "joke" or provocative comments.
The following "fans" were taken down a notch and blocked for provoking or offending some high-profile users.
