Few things grab our attention like the way an awkward celebrity interview does. It isn’t fun for the stars involved at all. Sometimes even viewers and fans have to resort to watching through their fingers. Plus, when celeb lands themselves in an embarrassing interview situation, more people try to dig deeper into what happened. The uncomfortable moments were filmed and re-uploaded on social networks. Then, curious and cringe-seeking netizens can’t stop smashing the replay button and spreading rumors.
Star guests and interviewers are professionals in public speaking. Regardlessly, they mess up from time to time. Because everybody is a human and can’t control their emotion perfectly, they slip words occasionally. Whether they regret it later or not, their reputation is already affected (it usually gets worse in these cases). On the other hand, some internet users think those bad moments are just another effective way to draw attention.
