Sometimes, you have celebrity encounters that make your day, but it can also be the opposite of it. Celebrities can be weird at times, but you really can’t blame them for that. Some people are ready to understand their situations, while some create a scene about them.
However, comedian John Field is much more interested to know about the weird celebrity encounters rather than the good ones.
This autumn, he asked his Twitter users: “What’s the worst interaction with a celebrity you’ve ever had?” From Devi Lovato and Kid Rock to Jessica Alba and Cillian Murphy; and it turns out, that people had enough answers for that.
Of course, we must not forget that anyone can have a bad day. Just like ordinary people have mood swings celebrities also have the right to be upset. Yes, we ask a lot from them because of their profession. But we must understand them as well.
Just because they gave a strong performance on stage, does not mean they are in the mood for anything. Plus, some people tend to exaggerate. But everything is said and done, this thread had some interesting answers, that we would like to share with you’ll. So scroll down to check out what people have to say.
We tried to get in touch with John and he was sporting enough to have a little chat with us regarding the now-viral thread.
“I came up for the idea for the tweet after reading a thread of ‘bad celebrity interactions’ and wanted to tweak the wording just a little bit so people would basically give me answers about where they were the bad people in the stories,” he told Hiptoro.
After scrolling through the replies he received on the thread, John thinks the craziest story belongs to Andy Richter who had a pretty weird interaction on the set of New Adventures of Old Christine. “It’s one of those awkward experiences I relate to.”
The content creator further added, “As a person who works in a customer service job, I get the sense that when celebs are out in public they have to be ‘on’ all the time like when I’m dealing with customers, which seems exhausting,”.
And it is entirely true, Billie Eilish, for example, is one celebrity who had a hard time adjusting to her popularity. “I don’t mean this in a necessarily negative way, but I sort of lost my teenage years, because this all started when I was 13,” the singer told Dutch channel 3voor12.
“There is no training, there’s no like, let me go to a school that’s going to teach me how to be famous. Also, that would suck. That would be trash school … Famous people suck,” she added. “Fame is trash.”
“The original thread I read that inspired my post was about people complaining about ‘bad celebrity encounters’ and halfway through, it felt like the people approaching the famous people in the story were the rude ones, not the celeb, and so it made me a little sympathetic to people who have the limelight on them all the time,” John said.
he also has a YouTube channel where he is open and willing to answer all open questions directed to him. “I have short sketches and long essays on death and crap!”
