It's easy for celebrities to overlook the less fortunate. While being the focus of attention can't be easy, celebrities can choose to either be cool about their followers' excessive adoration or to act like a complete jerk. Here are several A-listers who are reported to have committed some really heinous crimes against us helpless common folk.

At least in the eyes of certain fans, Rihanna is an impolite lady. "My coworker won free tickets and backstage passes to see Rihanna about a year after they were first playing 'Umbrella' on the radio," an ex-fan of RiRi shared with Thought Catalog.
"When her kids finally got the chance to go meet Rihanna, she was sitting at her makeup booth and refused to face them, or even look at them. When they asked for her autograph, she told the closest backup dancer to forge it for them and shooed them away."

2. Christian Bale

Bale's temper issues are well known; he was detained for screaming out at family members during a press tour and was recorded on camera berating staff members on the shoot.
However, the actor's purported former public relations representative claims that the Dark Knight's treatment of fans is even worse, recalling an incident in which Bale allegedly yelled at young girls until they cried after they asked him for an autograph and another in which Bale allegedly faxed a fan a complex death threat involving a screwdriver.
Bale was never held accountable for the threat or his offenses against the voice of Batman.

3. Michael Jordan

There are several stories of Jordan being obnoxious and aggressive, but none stands out more than the day rapper Chamillionaire asked Jordan for a picture.
The rapper Chamillionaire claimed in an interview with the Madd Hatta Morning Show in 2015 that he paid $15,000 for a Jordan jersey at a charity event, but when he asked for a picture with No. 23, Jordan allegedly replied, "I don't take pictures with n****s," and demanded that Chamillionaire pay him $15,000.
Chamillionaire opted out, of course.

4. Justin Bieber

Where should I begin with Justin Bieber? The pop star has treated his Beliebers horribly. He is accused of defiling an Argentinian flag given to him by a fan, mooning others at ancient Mayan sites in Mexico, and spitting on admirers from a balcony in Toronto, Canada.
And that's only the beginning of his meltdowns. There are numerous accounts and videos of Justin losing his cool with fans. After that, in 2016, he announced on Instagram (via Time) that he would no longer pose for photos with fans because he "felt like a zoo animal" and that he "didn't owe anybody a picture," acknowledging that he would likely disappoint them.
Okay, so maybe the Biebs shouldn't have chosen to target young females if he wanted self-aware, extremely restricted admirers.

5. Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande, a pop singer, managed to alienate not only the majority of her fans but an entire nation when she said, "America is my enemy. I abhor America "in a California doughnut shop on July 4, 2015.
She also licked desserts she had not purchased. The shop's surveillance camera caught her reprehensible behavior. Despite numerous public apologies, the singer was subsequently denied permission to play at a White House event, according to Us Weekly.

6. Bruce Willis

According to accounts from everyone from Kevin Smith to Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis is a famously difficult performer to deal with. Well, fans' individual experiences with the actor tend to confirm this notion better.
A report on MeanStars claims that Willis reprimanded two children for spotting him in a mall food court and pointing him out, however it seems odd for a child to identify Willis for anything these days.

7. Cameron Diaz

In addition to her well-known reluctance to sign autographs, Cameron Diaz seems to dislike connecting with fans even when doing so is required by her employment. The actress was not interested in the fans, according to witnesses at the Sex Tape (2014) fan screening.
"It's not like the fans were following them at a hotel or restaurant, it was a film premiere with fans," an insider told Radar Online. "When Cameron was spotted, she... refused the fans [photos and autographs] telling them, 'If I did it for you, I'd have to do it for everyone,' before storming off."

8. Britney Spears

From a meet-and-greet with Britney Spears, don't anticipate much. One disgruntled supporter told OK!, "Fans were told before the meet-and-greet that they were not to hug or touch Britney without her permission and they weren't allowed to bring her any gifts. And then once they finally got to meet her it was like smile, take a photo, goodbye. Each person literally got like three seconds with her. She barely spoke."
