Donald Trump Isn’t Alone In His Twitter Stupidity
Kim, Kanye and Amanda Bynes are keeping him company on the timeline of doom…
By Tamara Roper
Yesterday afternoon Donald Trump proved himself a true blonde buffoon when he accidentally retweeted a photo of serial killer couple Fred and Rose West. He thought he was retweeting in memoriam of a couple who were massively inspired by him, thanks to a Twitter trickster, but now the ‘joke’ has Trump threatening to sue.
While many could argue this utter Trump-et was an innocent accident, it doesn’t stop us from looking back at more celebrity Twitter bombs, which perhaps they should have thought through before hitting ‘Tweet’.
So Kim, Kanye, Emma Watson… this is your Twitter timeline.
Kanye brings the feels
Notorious for being a little ‘too much’ at all times, Kanye is quite good at posting tweets and subsequently deleting them, which leads us to think he second guesses himself or just enjoys being a tease. His ‘Sometimes I get emotional over fonts’ was something we’d expect to see on a Drake account, but hey. Who says a guy can’t get deep?
Kim hates breastfeeders
If Kanye’s in trouble for having too much emotion, Kim warrants an award for not having any at all, when in 2010 she got in major hot water for chastising women who were breastfeeding in public. The only way we think she’ll be able to appease everyone insulted by this is to whap a boob out and do it herself on the next Lanvin FROW she takes North to.
Lily’s tweet that launched a thousand ships
No stranger to the odd demand here or there, a pregnant Lily Allen tweeted about her need for taxi-delivered pizza. Fair’s fair, the demands of a woman with child should be heeded. Cue a Twitter enthusiast to see an opportunity, jump on an errant tweet and begin a war of 140 characters.

Amanda Bynes being an effing weirdo to Drake
Presented without comment:
Drake subsequently reacted calling it “a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me”. Of course he did.
David Cameron being a weirdo “on the phone to Obama”
David Cameron once famously said of Twitter that “too many tweets might make a tw*t”. Alas, he’s been victim of the self-fulfilling prophecy one too many times, recently with this pseudo serious “I’m on the phone to the States” image.

Emma Watson proving that she's actually a bit of a loser (in the nicest possible way)
Not a mega Twitter fan, it doesn’t take long to scroll down to the bottom of golden girl Emma Watson’s timeline. Nearing the end, you stumble across gems like these:
I just got excited about laundry detergent - help!!

We suggest Hermione starts frantically tweeting right now in order to clear all memory of such silliness…
M.I.A. tweeting a journalist’s phone number
Less a fail, than failure of a character on M.I.A.’s behalf. Not able to take the (biting) article New York Times journo Lynn Hirschberg wrote about her secretly lavish lifestyle, Maya Arulpragasam posted the following, inviting fans to basically troll Hirschberg.
Wyclef Jean, oiled up, nearly nude, on his 43rd birthday
Birthday suit indeed. This is too weird.
