27 Celebrities Who Called Out Their Critics



“It’s a little desperate for a grown man to be bad-mouthing someone they don’t know.” —Cara Delevingne

Oftentimes, when a celebrity garners criticism, it’s well deserved. However, when they’re criticized for inconsequential things, such as their weight or the way they dress, a smart or sassy clapback is well deserved.

Here are 27 celebs who had the perfect reponse to their unfair critics:


When a Twitter troll told Janelle Monáe to “stop being so soulful and be sexy,” they replied, “I’m not for male consumption.”

“Sit down,” she told the troll, who replied, “Yes, ma’am.” 


On the Oscar red carpet, a Sky interviewer said Get Out was nominated for Best Picture because it “ticked a lot of boxes in some ways,” and Daniel Kaluuya replied, “They’re not boxes though. Articulating a Black experience is not a box.”

“We’re articulating our truth. We’re human beings,” he told the reporter.


When Harry Styles wore a dress on the cover of Vogue, conservative pundit Candace Owens tweeted, “Bring back manly men,” so he posted an Instagram picture of himself eating a banana using her words as the caption.


Lizzo shared a workout video on TikTok, reminding people who criticize her weight that she’s “working out to have my ideal body type.”

“Health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside. Health is also what happens on the inside, and a lot of y’all need to do a fucking cleanse for your insides,” she said


When podcaster Amanda Richards called her “the fat girl from Bridgerton” and criticized her for wearing a cardigan at the Golden Globes, Nicola Coughlan pointed out that her look was inspired by the way designer Molly Goddard styled it on the runway.


At the SAG Awards, a TNT reporter asked Mayim Bialik how many people think she can do calculus like her Big Bang Theory character, and she answered, “I actually was trained in calculus for several years. I’m a neuroscientist.”

“You may not have known that,” she added


During an interview, Ellen tried to call out Dakota Johnson for not inviting her to her birthday party, but Dakota clarified, “That’s not the truth, Ellen. You were invited.”

“Last time I was on the show, you gave me a bunch of shit about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited,” she continued. “I didn’t even know you liked me.”


When a random Twitter user told Gigi Hadid to “practice how to walk properly instead of having a new boyfriend every two weeks,” she replied, “My walk can always get better; I hope the unrelated bitterness in your heart can too.”

She also pointed out that she’d “dated three guys in three years.” 


Taylor Swift wrote “Blank Space” as a response to the media painting her as the “psycho serial dating girl.”

“It got pretty out of control there for a couple of years because…every article would be like, ‘Taylor Swift standing near guy…watch out, guy!'” she joked before performing the song at the Grammy Museum


Piers Morgan continuously bullied and belittled Jameela Jamil on Twitter, even mocking her health issues, so she simply blocked him.

“He’s using his platform ONLY to perpetuate the hateful emotional violence that leads to the nervous breakdown of young, vulnerable people,” she posted. “I expose his name to a new young audience when I tweet him, which endangers them.”


Gabourey Sidibe jokingly let the people who were hating on her Golden Globes look know that she most definitely “cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job.”

Later, she said, “Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade!”


When some people began boycotting his movies because he was vocal about his opposition to former president Trump, Samuel L. Jackson said, “If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money.”

“I already cashed that check,” he told Esquire.


While reflecting on the criticism she received for being “too thin,” Emma Stone said, “It bothers me because I care so much about young girls. We’re shaming each other and we’re shaming ourselves, and it sucks.”

She told USA Today, “When I make a comment about someone or I choose to gossip about someone and speculate about their body or their life or their face, it’s usually a reflection of something I’m feeling myself.”


While Demi Lovato was struggling with an eating disorder, their previous team made them eat watermelon covered in fat-free whipped cream instead of birthday cake, so after signing on with a new manager, they wrote “Melon Cake.”

The song goes, “There was a time where the cat and mouse tried to make me Barbie-sized, and I obliged.”


When commenters criticized Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old child for wearing fake nails in a family photo, he responded, “I’ve been chosen to lead my family, not y’all.”


Bebe Rexha called out the designers who refused to dress her for the Grammy Awards because she wasn’t a runway size, saying, “If a size 6/8 is ‘too big’…then I don’t wanna wear your fucking dresses.”

Revisiting the issue on The Jonathan Ross Show, she said, “They need to include everyone, even if you’re thinner. You need to show love to every body type.”


When a Twitter troll called Zendaya “ugly,” she responded with this stunning photo.

In response, the hater asked her to follow them so they could send her a debut.


When people kept asking Rowan Blanchard if she was depressed because she preferred not to smile in her Instagram pictures, she responded, “I don’t think people realize how rude and hurtful it can be to just see comments where people say, ‘Are you depressed?’ when depression is a serious and personal thing that affects a ton of people.”

George Pimentel / Getty Images

She continued, “Funny how people think my Instagram means I’m depressed, yet when people who are actually depressed talk about their depression people make light of it and say that they are ‘overreacting.'”


Richard Madden told Style that Cara Delevingne seemed “unprofessional” and “ungrateful” in an interview she did to promote Paper Towns, so she responded by tweeting, “I have no idea who you are, but I think it’s a little desperate for a grown man to be bad-mouthing someone they don’t know.”

“If you really want attention that badly, try focusing on your own work and not other people’s,” she added.

He later responded that he had “nothing but respect” for her.


When former president Donald Trump left the White House, Greta Thunberg called him “a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future” — a play on his response to her passionate UN speech.

Trump, who’d been banned from Twitter and Instagram by then, couldn’t respond.


Kendall Jenner responded to criticism that she only became a successful model because of her family’s name with a Mean Girls–inspired “Burn Book” video.

She told Dazed, “For me, getting into [high fashion] and being taken seriously was something that needed to be figured out…I had to do some of the best shows to say, ‘Yo, this is what I’m doing and here I am, proving it.’”


When a Twitter troll responded to the news that Mindy Kaling had been cast as Velma in a Scooby-Doo series with an image of Michael Scott shouting no, the actor replied, “I wrote the episode of The Office this GIF is from.”

Not only did Mindy write for The Office, but she also played Kelly Kapoor. 


Simone Biles wore a sequin goat — representing that she’s the Greatest of All Time — on her gymnastics leotard to “hit back at the haters.”

She told Marie Claire, “[The haters] were joking like, ‘I swear, if she put a goat on her leo, blah, blah, blah.’ That would make them so angry. And then I was like, ‘Oh, that’s actually a good idea. Let’s make the haters hate it, and the fans love it.’ And so that’s exactly what we did and why we did it.”


When Star magazine twisted a picture of Sofía Vergara without her wedding ring into a story about her cheating, she reposted the cover with the caption, “If [the editor] is going to have my ring removed to create a ‘fake news,’ he should have made sure that he removed from social media all the other pictures of that award night in Rome where I’m wearing it.”

George Pimentel / Getty Images

“By the way, that’s my friend [and] the producer of the movie Bent that I was shooting in Rome and who came to spend Easter at my home the week later,” she added to clarify who the “other man” in the pictures was.


When the Daily Beast asked Kristen Stewart how she felt about people judging her acting ability after watching Twilight, she said, “And that’s cool! Just don’t watch my movies.”

“Honestly, I don’t care. It’s fine. I’m really happy doing what I’m doing,” she said.


At a press conference after her US Open win, a reporter asked Serena Williams why she wasn’t smiling, so she replied, “To be perfectly honest with you, I don’t want to be here.”

Alex Goodlett / Getty Images

She continued, “I just want to be in bed right now, and I have to wake up early to practice… You guys keep asking me the same questions.”


And finally, at the Hollywood Film Awards, a reporter asked Keira Knightley how she balances her career and her personal life, and she responded, “Are you going to ask all the men that tonight?”

“I think in the same way that everybody else does,” she continued. “You do the work that you love, and you make sure that you have time for your life and the people who are important to you.”

12 Celebs Who Gave College Commencement Speeches



“You’ve made it and you’re fucked.”

Graduation ceremonies can be long and tedious — unless you’ve got an A-list celeb giving the commencement address obv!

These college grads hit the jackpot when it came to commencement speakers and learned some valuable lessons along the way.

Here’s who took the stage at college graduations:


Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift received an honorary doctorate degree when she took the stage to talk to New York University students in May 2022. In her speech, Taylor talked about her career and accepting that life is going to be a little “cringe” sometimes. She added that it’s important to know that everyone makes mistakes — and it’s how you grow from them that’s important. 

“I know it can be really overwhelming figuring out who to be, and when. Who you are now and how to act in order to get where you want to go. I have some good news: it’s totally up to you. I also have some terrifying news: it’s totally up to you,” Taylor said on stage


Robert De Niro

In 2015, Robert De Niro also took the stage at NYU, giving Tisch School of the Arts students a little bit of tough love about the realities of life. The actor bluntly opened his speech by telling grads, “You’ve made it and you’re fucked.” He went on to get real about working in entertainment and the sometimes painstaking process of auditioning but encouraged students to keep going.  

“You discovered a talent, developed an ambition, and recognized your passion. When you feel that, you can’t fight it — you just go with it. When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense. You aren’t just following dreams, you’re reaching for your destiny…You’re an artist — yeah, you’re fucked. The good news is that’s not a bad place to start,” Robert said. 


Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep shared almost 30 minutes of wisdom with the graduates of Columbia University’s Barnard College back in 2010. She took students through the trajectory of her career, sharing that at the end of the day, it’s most important to be yourself. She also emphasized the importance of empathy and how it’s a fundamental part of creating a happy and successful life.

“You don’t have to be famous. You just have to make your mother and father proud of you…and you already have,” Meryl concluded her speech. 


Ken Jeong

The Hangover actor Ken Jeong was actually the perfect choice for a commencement speech considering the comedian was actually a doctor before he found success in the entertainment industry. He spoke to the graduates of UNC Greensboro in 2019 and definitely kept everyone laughing. But in addition to his humor, he also told grads to find their passion and be persistent in achieving their goals. 

“I encourage you, good times and bad, keep moving, keep finding your passion. I honestly say to every single soul in this coliseum: If I can do this, and if I can do what I want, so can you. You have the light and the future and the universe ahead of you,” Ken said. 


Dolly Parton

In 2009, Dolly Parton addressed graduates of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a commencement speech, something she thought she’d never do. She opened by saying she didn’t like to give advice because what works for one person may not work for another — but she ended up being pretty inspirational. Dolly encouraged the crowd to dream more and fight for the things they wanted.

“Do not confuse dreams with wishes. There is a difference. Dreams are where you visualize yourself being successful at what’s important to you to accomplish. Dreams build convictions because you work hard to pay the price to make sure that they come true. Wishes are hoping good things will happen to you, but there’s no fire in your gut that causes you to put everything forth to overcome all the obstacles. So you have to dream more and never, ever, ever blame somebody else if it doesn’t happen,” Dolly said. 


Lisa Kudrow

Lisa Kudrow returned to her alma mater, Vassar College, in 2010 to address recent graduates in a touching speech about dealing with failure. Lisa says when she first started out as an actor, she often experienced rejection and almost gave up on her dreams of being an actor. Fortunately, it all led up to her big break on Friends

“I understand that because the 20s is that time in your life when you’re really getting acquainted with self-doubt when there’s so much seemingly at stake. So let me reassure you, it’s not supposed to be easy. You are supposed to have moments of uncertainty about which path to take because the 20s are full of crossroads. When one door closes, another door always opens,” Lisa said on stage. 


Tom Hanks

In 2011, Tom Hanks spoke in front of Yale’s graduating class, where he encouraged students to take fear head on. During the speech, Tom shared his love of history and referenced events throughout the United States’ past where fear was overcome to create a better place. 

“To stand on the fulcrum between fear and faith — fear at your back, faith in front of you. Which way will you move? Move forward, move ever forward and tweet out a picture of the results,” Tom concluded his speech. 


Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell gave an “unorthodox” speech during Harvard University’s Class Day in 2003. Although Will said he wouldn’t be using humor in his speech and wasn’t going to “sugarcoat” his thoughts, it ended up being almost 10 minutes of hilarity. Will shared fake quotes, dished his advice on everything from dealing with incompetent assistants to tax fraud, and ended his speech with a song. 

“I’m sorry, graduates. But this is a world where you aren’t allowed to use your cell phone on airplanes, during live theater, at the movies, at funerals, or even during your own elective surgery. Apparently, the Berlin Wall went back up because we now live in Russia. I mean just try lighting up a cigar in a movie theater or paying for a dinner for 20 friends with an autograph. It ain’t that easy. Strong words, I know. Tough talk. But more like tough love. Because this is where my faith in you guys comes into play, Harvard University’s graduating Class of 2003, without a doubt, the finest, most talented group of sexual beings this great land has to offer,” Will said at one point


Jennifer Garner

In 2019, Jennifer Garner gave a speech at Denison University, which she attended in the early ’90s. In addition to receiving an honorary doctorate of humane letters, Jennifer shared some truths about vaping, sunscreen, and the friends you make in college. She also explained three important things all people should be disciplined about. 

“Impose self-discipline around three things: have a book on your bedside table at all times and read it, obviously. Be in charge of your consumption of social media, and foster a sense of humor about yourselves because otherwise, you run the risk of being boring,” Jennifer shared. 


Steve Carell

Steve Carell took the stage at Princeton University’s Class Day in 2012, hilariously discussing the impact of technology on the world and offering new grads some helpful hints…that weren’t really that helpful. In addition to reminding students not to tell “that’s what she said” jokes to their parents and noting the superiority of dogs over cats, Steve also got serious for a moment. 

“Every once in a while, put something positive into the world. We have become so cynical these days. And by we I mean us. So do something kind, make someone laugh, and don’t take yourself too seriously,” Steve concluded. 


John Krasinski

John Krasinski returned to his alma mater, Brown University, in 2019 to address new graduates and discuss how one decision can change your entire life. He encouraged students to get involved and pursue as much as they could until they figured out their passion. John explained that’s happened for him when he joined the school’s sketch comedy group. 

“Not because I got in, not because I started acting. It was through that group that I found my way into this community. It was through that group that I met my people and all of a sudden I was surrounded by the most inspiring peers. One of the best decisions I made in my life was just to lean all the way in,” John said. 


Mindy Kaling

In 2018, Mindy Kaling spoke with the students of Dartmouth College, where she graduated in 2001. While Mindy was excited to be sharing her words of wisdom with the recent grads, she reminded the students that just one story can’t give you the entire roadmap to being successful. She did offer some insight into her personal success story though, explaining that it all had to do with confidence. 

“I’ll tell you my secret, the one thing that has kept me going through the years, my superpower: delusion. This is something I may share with our president [Donald Trump], a fact that is both horrifying and interesting. Two years in, I think we can pretty safely say that he’s not getting carved onto Mount Rushmore, but damn if that isn’t a testament to how far you can get just by believing you’re the smartest, most successful person in the world. My point is, you have to have insane confidence in yourself, even if it’s not real,” Mindy shared.

JT Talks About Her Wardrobe Malfunction At The Billboard Music Awards 



There were many trending moments from this year’s Billboard Music Awards, with one of those moments featuring JT from The City Girls. Now she is speaking out about the wardrobe malfunction that made her a trending topic the night of the award show.

As previously reported, while taking the stage to present Doja Cat with the award for Top R&B Artist, JT’s panties were exposed, along with a portion of her private area. At the moment, JT responded to a user on Twitter and said, “I have on black Panties RELAX.”

However, in a new interview with Speedy Morman for Complex, JT shared that she didn’t know how much of her private area was showing on national television until she got back to her seat.

JT said, “We walked to our stage, and the first person we had seen was Megan [Thee Stallion] and she was like ‘girl your whole…is out.’ And I’m like, huh?” JT continued to say that she had no clue as to what was going on at that moment. “She was trying to tell me when I was on stage, but I never looked down,” she explained.

JT said that she had brushed it off, but once she returned to her seat, she checked her phone to see what everyone had been talking about. Nonetheless, she seemed to find some humor in the situation, as she explained that she told Yung Miami that the moment was so embarrassing, and Yung Miami simply responded and said, “Ohhh that is.”

Despite the little wardrobe malfunction, it looks like the rap duo is looking past the situation and getting back into their bag. They had a successful run at Coachella this year, and now they will be hitting the road with Jack Harlow on his Come Home The Kids Miss You Tour. They also shared that they have a new record with Usher that is dropping soon.

Rising Artist: “FAMA$” Is Back With Another Album “The POV”

Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter and award winning executive film producer FAMA$ has been making his way up the charts, landing him as the next big thing in the hip-hop, pop, and R&B community. With the help of Volunteer Media his highly anticipated debut full length album: “The POV” distributed by The Orchard (a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment) is releasing today (May 20, 2022).

Leading up to the album’s release, FAMA$ has dropped several high profile singles including 2020’s FLY and LOVE. FAMA$’s music has picked up significant steam on platforms such as YouTube, and TikTok while also keeping dance floors moving all over the world.

FAMA$ is on a roll and keeping up what he’s known for best: releasing some of the hottest summer time tracks that the music community has ever heard. Not only does he hold a unique sound and style, he also has a deep passion for R&B and pop culture. His music contains lyrical content surrounding real-life issues experienced by many worldwide. In his interview with us he tells us that he is a modern day R&B connoisseur, on a mission to return rap to the days where it was more than simply a nice beat.

Starting out from the humblest of beginnings, the rising star FAMA$ was first given the name Faraz at birth, which means elevation in Arabic. From the time of his birth to the present, Faraz has constantly elevated himself, growing up to be a truly talented artist who is destined for long lasting success. Since the release of his first single ALREADY GONE (2018), Faraz has rocked stadium stages with the likes of American rapper T.I., connected with fellow Canadian artist’s Merkules and Lil Windex, and has followed up with multiple other single releases, including LOVE (2020) which has picked up significant steam on TikTok.
