These days, social media is an extremely important part of every celebrity’s career. Now that people can have constant access to their favorite stars, they expect to be kept up to date with all the latest happenings. However, while social media can be a great tool to help celebrities build their brands, when used incorrectly, it can cause some serious problems. Ever since websites like Twitter and Instagram have become popular, there have been dozens of stories about people who have accidentally posted something. Unfortunately for these celebrities, the Internet has a never ending memory, and their mistakes will live on forever. Here are the biggest celebrity Instagram fails of 2015.
By now, it seems like EVERYONE – including celebrities – should know that the Internet is no place to be sharing personal business. However, some people clearly haven’t gotten the memo, and time and time again people rush to social media and decide to air their dirty laundry. Earlier this year, Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Karrueche, decided to blast the singer on her Instagram account. In a length post, she decided to open up on her feelings towards Chris and let all of her followers know that she simply wasn’t feeling him anymore. While this is the kind of behavior that people have come to expect from Chris, a lot of people were surprised to see Karrueche stoop to his level. Although she may have thought she was proving a point, many of her followers were disappointed.

Tyga has spent a lot of time in the gossip headlines this year, and unfortunately for him, it hasn’t been for anything good. Before Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday, there were many rumors circulating that she and Tyga were involved in a romantic relationship. While the two insisted that they were just friends, the rest of the world watch them with raised eyebrows. Well earlier this year, it seemed like Tyga finally got sick of denying the rumors, when he posted what many believed to be confirmation of their relationship to his Instagram account. Underneath a photo he shared of Kylie was the caption, “Certain things catch your eye, but only a few capture the heart.” Maybe he thought he was being sweet, but lots of people saw the moment as slightly inappropriate seeing as how Kylie was just 17 at the time the photo was posted.

Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna
Both Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna have gotten a lot of attention for their bodies. In fact, you could even argue that that’s what made them famous in the first place. However, even with that being said, some people are probably questioning how nice their bodies really are after a little Instagram slip up that proves that photos can be very easily altered. When the two women decided to take a mirror selfie after their workout, it was clear that the picture had been altered to give them a few more curves then they actually have. If you look closely, you can even see that the room around them has ‘curves’ too. Yeah, somebody should probably teach them how to photoshop a little more effectively.

R&B singer/reality TV star, K. Michelle is another star whose curvy frame has gotten her a lot of attention. However, a photo she uploaded to Instagram a few months ago was clearly altered to make her body look even more voluptuous. Lots of K. Michelle’s followers quickly pointed out the fact that the door frame in the picture had also been curved by her weak attempt at editing and as you can imagine, they had a field day. Ironically; however, K. Michelle often claims to keep it real, but this time she showed exactly what happens when keeping it ‘real’ goes wrong. Unfortunately; however, she didn’t learn her lesson with that one photo, and she’s been accused of editing several other photos on her Instagram account.

After her very public break up with rap star, Future, many thought Ciara would be out of the game for a while. However, her relationship with football star, Russel Wilson, has become a hot topic, mainly because of the couple’s choice to abstain from sex. However, Ciara recently uploaded a picture to her Instagram account which had many people questioning whether or not she was pregnant. Although she denied the claims by saying that her stomach was simply poking out from eating too much, her followers still have their doubts.

Selena Gomez is one of the most popular young stars in the industry, and as a result, she is also one of the most popular stars on social media. With that being said, anything Gomez posts is sure to get a lot of attention, which is exactly what happened when she uploaded a random picture with the caption, “a few of my favorite things.” While the caption may seem pretty straight forward, the fact that there were more than a ‘few’ things going on in the picture definitely left a lot of her followers confused. What are your favorite things, Selena? The world is dying to know!

Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to fails in real life, so it was only a matter of time before her social media world also experienced a bump in the road. A few months ago, Lohan uploaded a picture to her Instagram which featured an Arabic phrase. While she thought the world meant “you’re beautiful,” it was actually the Arabic word for donkey. Lohan quickly deleted the picture, but not before lots of her followers got the chance to see it. Hopefully Lohan learned her lesson in not posting things in languages that you can’t speak.

Kylie Jenner is by far one of the most popular stars on social media. Although she isn’t famous for anything in particular, people really seem to love her. However, thanks to a photo posted on her Instagram account, Kylie quickly learned that everyone isn’t crazy about her. Earlier this year, Jenner posted a picture of herself sporting some freshly braided corn rows. Although she thought she was simply showing off her new hairstyle, actress, Amandla Stenburg, wasn’t having it. Stenburg pointed out that Jenner’s corn rows were nothing more than cultural appropriation, and soaked a huge debate in the comments section of the photograph.
