Talk about controversy and JB doesn’t make it to the list? That’s impossible! The singer has had his fair share of controversies as compared to good news. This one is when he visited Japan, posed in front of a shrine, and posted on his Instagram. However, the problem is, it was the Shinto shrine, a war shrine, honoring over 2 million dead soldiers and convicted war criminals. He faced a good amount of backlash for his ignorance. When he got to know the dark history behind the shrine, he immediately removed the post and apologized.

2. Selena Gomez

The #jelena fans know how both the couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been a part of several controversies, be it as a couple or as individuals. In 2014, during her visit to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, she clicked photos in a manner that wasn’t approved by her fans. In the photo, you could see her exposed ankles (something that isn’t appropriate when you visit a mosque). Soon after she uploaded her photos on Instagram, she was bashed for it and she took them down.

3. Liam Payne

Some of the celebs love to show off, and Liam Payne is one of them! How can we say this? Well, his Instagram post was enough to tell us this. In a now-deleted IG post, Liam posted an image of himself showing his middle finger. The main problem was with his caption. It said, “You can only get jet lag from a jet the rest of yall have only got plane lag #NOF*CKS.” Several users commented bashing him for his childish arrogant caption. One user commented said he is acting like a “spoilt man-child”. Well, we couldn’t have agreed with you more!

4. Kylie Jenner

Another very obvious name on the list! The Kardashians and the Jenners have attracted controversies like honey attracts bees (lol, sorry for this!). Among many, here’s the one we’ll mention today. In 2015, Kylie Jenner did a photoshoot of herself wherein they used black and neon lights on her face. This made her face look black. While some found it creative, others criticized her for intentionally making her face look black. She shut down speculations saying, “This is a black light and neon lights people let us all calm down.” 

5. Kristin Cavallari

Some of the users said they looked “obviously nutritionally deficient”. To such comments she replied, “Yep, I starve my children. Just blocked the most people I’ve ever blocked in my entire life. Happy 4th hahaha.”
