Redditors Are Showing How They No Longer Respect These A-List Celebs

A common misconception about celebrities is that they are almost ideal beings with vast wealth and similarly vast hearts. Additionally, consider the tens of thousands of admirers who would go to any lengths to get Oprah's autograph or a photo with Zendaya; unsurprisingly, these people want the A-listers to be amiable and kind.
However, this Reddit thread claims this is not always the case. On Ask Reddit, someone posed the question, "Who is the rudest celebrity you've ever met?" and received several amusing responses. After reading about people's disappointing experiences with obnoxious and entitled famous individuals, be prepared to be let down and remember to take these accounts with a grain of salt. We can't guarantee if these are true or not, but who knows?

1. Oprah

"Oprah didn’t tip me on a $200 lunch — instead, she signed a napkin for me and acted like she was doing me a huge favor. The kicker was when she walked in, they gave away all of my other tables so she didn’t have to wait for anything. So I made $4/hour for two hours for the privilege of serving Oprah, and she went on and on about signing a napkin that I never asked for."

"Ellen Degeneres is a bona fide b*tch. Incredibly rude, my Uncle worked with her(he's an architect) on some project and she treated her help like total cr*p. I couldn't believe it at the time, but I've heard similar accounts of her bad behavior over the years."

"I haven’t met many but Lenny Kravitz stayed at the hotel I worked at. He had the hotel sign an agreement that the staff were not to look at him or talk to him.
Snoop dog was cool. He left a bunch of booze and weed behind in his suite. The house keepers got a bunch of top shelf hootch and weed after he left."

4. Tyra Banks

"This takes place when UPN and WB were merging into “The CW”.
She comes into town for an ANTM cattle call. Demands we repaint the office she was going to use (for three days) makes our pregnant programming director cry, flips her shot and tries to get me fired when I wouldn’t get her a bottled water.
My response was “have one of your people get it, I have to get back to the board, commercial break is up in 40 seconds.”
Opposite side, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are two of the nicest celebrities I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
We had just gotten “that 70’s show” in syndication and they came out for promo shoots. Super friendly."

5. Carrie Underwood

"I’ve worked as a maintenance worker at a concert venue for a few summers and have bumped into several celebrities, but Carrie Underwood is the one who sticks out because of how demanding she always was. She refused to use a toilet if someone else had sat on the seat before her — cleaning them was never good enough, so we had to buy new toilet seats every time she came.

Considering how much we already had to fix, the last thing we wanted to do was pointlessly replace perfectly good toilet seats. In contrast, Reba McEntire would always eat lunch with the staff and was always super chill."

6. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

"My dad is a pilot and he frequently deals with celebrities. His company has all the staff sign NDAs, but my dad usually doesn't even know who the celebrities are unless they've been in the news. He said that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are incredibly rude to their own staff. Personal assistants were terrified of them."

"Randy Jackson. He was invited to a telethon hosted by a hospital for children with severe disabilities, where my little sister lived until she passed away. Whenever the cameras were off, he would hide in his hotel room and seemed disgusted with the kids. Didn’t want anything to do with them. When the cameras were on though, he was all smiles and hugs. It was so disheartening and disappointed. Almost 10 years ago and I still remember it so clearly."

Eric Roberts was a guest at a small, local comic convention. Thought it would be cool to get a signed pic of him as the Master.
He pretended people weren't there until they paid his manager fifty bucks.
My wife's parting shot as we walked away? "Loved your work on Celebrity Rehab."

"My daughter was at a store in orlando and ran into LeBron James when he was with the Heat. 13 yo girl asked for a pic and he got pissy, told her she wasn't worthy of a picture with him, did she even know who he was, he didn't have time for this. Walked away leaving her crying so bought her an ice cream."

"Sean Penn. F*cking douche at the movie theater I worked at.
On the other side of that are Robin Williams and Lars Ulrich. Two of the nicest, most genuine dudes I ever slang popcorn to."

12. Chad Gray

"Chad Gray, singer of Mudvayne and Hellyeah. I was in an autograph line where you had to buy the album at the show to be in the line back in 2005, at the peak of Mudvayne's success. This kid was in line in front of me, maybe 19 years old. He gets to his turn and says "hey man I've spent every free dime I have to see you guys when you're in the area since before your first album.
I don't have much, but I love you guys so much, I saved all year to buy a festival ticket because of the meet and greet opportunity, it would make my dreams come true to take a picture with you guys" and takes out a sh*tty disposable camera. The rest of the band starts moving to take a picture when Chad tells him "no f*cking way" and directs security to confiscate the camera."

"I worked with Gwyneth Paltrow's children for eight weeks at a camp, and we got paid $5 an hour. Parents usually tip $100 or more at the end, but she didn't tip at all."

14. Hugh Grant

"I met a lot of celebrities while working for an airline, one of them being Hugh Grant. One time, he sat in First Class 1A on a 747 (which is right in the nose of the plane), so there was nothing but a wall in front of the seat. It's standard procedure for the cabin manager to go around to every first-class passenger and personally introduce themselves. When my manager got to Hugh, the conversation went something like this: Manager: 'Hello, Mr. Grant, my name is...' Hugh: 'Oh, F*CK OFF.' My manager proceeded to swiftly move on."

15. Bill Clinton

"My wife worked at a hotel for many years and met literally every major celebrity you can think of. She said Snoop was the coolest person she ever met and Bill Clinton was the biggest douche even though I find it hilarious. My wife was walking outside back into the hotel, saw Bill and stared until she smashed herself in the face with a tree branch.
Bill started laughing so hard he was having a hard time standing. The secret service ran over to help her and Bill, laughing so hard he could barely talk, told them to leave her because they had to keep walking."

"Kristen Stewart. I was waiting with friends outside of a pool hall for an uber when Kristen and her girlfriend come walking out of the building laughing all loud. We naturally glance over and move out of their way. Then she comes up to us and says "WHAT." , with her arms out like shes ready to brawl. Then they walk away laughing again.
We didnt even realize who she was till they were walking away. She should really be careful who she talks to like that, someone might actually go for the punch."

17. Madonna

"Madonna! She comes to my job few times a year. And every time she comes she's comes with 5-7 other people wearing a big hat, sunglasses and tries to blend within her friends or whoever they are. The people she travels with are so needy and always have some sort of special request to ask for. No thanks no nothing when they leave no tip and also leave a big mess. Can't stand them. No hi and no bye. I'm like bye b*tch."

"Eminem. I was in Denver once and I was waiting for an autograph with my little brother. It was a really cold and we waited for like 3 or 4 hours. He just said no."
