Many celebrities landed them in hot waters this year and received immense criticism and backlash regarding their actions as well as past mistakes.
Celebrities were brutally trolled in 2021 and many joined the cancel club and struggled to return to normalcy.
Let’s have a look at a few celebrities who remain in headlines this year for their explosive actions:
Chrissy Teigen joined the exclusive “cancel club” after multiple people came forward with complaints of being a victim of cyberbullying at the hands of the wife of john legend.
Chrissy Teigen was initially accused by Courtney Stodden who claimed that Teigen called her out on Twitter to kill herself when she was merely 16.
Farrah Abraham, Michael Costello, and Lindsay Lohan also came forward with accusations of cyberbullying.
Chrissy Teigen released public apologies multiple times but was dropped out of many leading projects as a result of the online campaign to cancel her.
Country music singer Morgan Wallen’s name flashed in headlines when a video surfaced on different social media platforms in which he was spotted using the N-word.
Wallen was criticized from all over the world as well as from his fellows in the country music industry.
“I was around some of my friends and we just, we say dumb stuff together. In our minds it’s playful. It sounds ignorant but that’s really where it came from, and it’s wrong,” Wallen said. “We were all clearly drunk and I was asking his girlfriend to take care of him because he was drunk and he was leaving. I didn’t mean it in any derogatory manner at all.”
Dave Chappelle found himself in hot water when the comedian made transgender jokes in his Netflix special “the closer”.
Many celebrities like Bill Maher and Joe Rogan came to the rescue but the damage was done as Chappelle chose to remain unapologetic about his take on transgender and his jokes.
Demi Lovato who recently recognized themselves as nonbinary caught into controversy with a small frozen yogurt shop on different social media platforms.
The singer criticized the bigg chill saying that “finding it extremely hard to order froyo from @thebiggchillofficial when you have to walk past tons of sugar-free cookies/other diet foods before you get to the counter.”
The yogurt shop replied to Lovato, saying it offers sugar-free items for people with “Diabetics, Celiac disease” and people who are vegan.
Lovato apologized publicly.
“I’m sorry that I may have got the messaging wrong. I’m sorry that I may have disappointed some people,” she said.
