Celebrities are sometimes portrayed as ‘perfect’ or ‘error free’, well that is until they make a gruesome mistake on live television that may or may not hurt their decade-long careers.
Staying in the limelight for years comes with its perks, but it can also be the stepping stone to distraught moments that may not be easy to come back from. Nevertheless, these stars are loved and appreciated for all that they do in the entertainment industries.
From Liam Neeson, to Rihanna, Vin Diesel, Naomi Campbell and many more, these stars went viral for at least one interview fail.
Keep reading below for more details.
Kanye West earned his place on the list of controversial celebrities as early as 2018, through 2020.
The rapper is popularly known for airing his thoughts without filter, and while some fans appreciate his honesty, others believe that it would cost him a lot someday.
In 2018, the “Fade” singer had a sit-down with TMZ, and a lot of topics were discussed during the lengthy conversation. However, while fans were proud of West for ‘spitting facts,’ one statement made the internet go wild, literally.
“When you hear about slavery for 400 years … For 400 years? That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all. It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned,” the hip-hop star said.
This statement caused a controversy in the black community, and till date, it is still one of the reasons, some people do not like the rapper.
This celebrity interview melt down may come off as funny to a lot of people, but if anyone was in Jessica Simpson’s position, they would probably not be too cheery about it.
During an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Simpson tried to promote her fashion line to viewers, and while it all seemed to be going well, she went off-script.
DeGeneres asked the singer if she had plans to make more music, and she replied that she could hardly keep track of the songs she had released.
To make this short, fans were sure they could number her songs and be done in a few seconds.
All hail the “Fast & Furious” King, Vin Diesel!
With those abs and daring stares on the big screens that fans are always looking forward to, the actor is sadly on the list of famous people who flopped a live interview.
During a movie promotion Q & A, Diesel was interviewed by a YouTuber named Carol Moreira.
Instead of answering the questions thrown at him, the actor was rudely fixated on the interviewer’s beauty. He referred to her physical features repeatedly and went as far as asking her on a date.
To cut the long awkwardness short, Moreira quickly shut down the interview and left the scene.
Liam Neeson is an incredible actor, so it might be difficult for fans to see the actor on this list, but like we said before, famous people are not perfect people.
This star explained to viewers during a sit down with “The Independent,” how he successfully pulled off his character in the film “Cold Pursuit.” In this movie, he sought revenge for the murder of his son through heroine overdose.
Neeson told the news outlet that to make himself visibly angry, he thought about the time one of his female friends, was raped by a black man. Well, that’s not the offensive part.
The actor went on to say; “I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping some ‘Black bastard’ would come out of a pub, so he could “kill him.” This statement almost put an end to the actor’s career, but he later apologized for it.
