50 Most shocking celebrity tweets of 2013

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

What better place to vent than Twitter?

In the 17th century, duels were the public forum for duking it out. Today, we have Twitter. As the year comes to a close, we look back at the most jaw-dropping tweets by celebs looking to get something off their chests.

Joan Rivers

It's a safe bet Gaga's little monsters didn't like this jab, but are any of them brave enough to take on the queen of mean herself, Joan Rivers?


Miley Cyrus

The world was all abuzz when Cyrus replied with this searing tweet to a letter written to her by O'Connor.


Miley Cyrus

FYI, Miles... this non-response counts as a response. As does your previous (see above) tweet.


Kim Kardashian

After Couric claimed she didn't understand why anyone would want to watch or look up to the Kardashian clan, Kim Kardashian put her on blast for sending baby North West a gift — complete with a nonsensical note card.


Sylvester Stallone

Stallone couldn't have been happier for Willis to get the boot from the Expendables 3 movie. What we'd really like to see them star in together, though, is a cage fight.


Joan Rivers

If Kim Kardashian didn't like what Katie Couric had to say, we wonder what she thought of Rivers' remark.


Amanda Bynes

As illustrated by this tweet, Bynes has a special knack for taking a sweet sentiment and making it totally creepy.


Keyshia Cole

When Beyoncé released her new song "Bow Down/I Been On" in May, the song struck a sour note with Keyshia Cole. Right before tweeting this, Keyshia took to Twitter to say, "Can't stand when people all self righteous when it's convenient it makes them look good. But can still talk s*** when convenient 2 FOH."


Olivia Wilde

This little gem of a tweet earned Wilde death threats from frenzied Beliebers.


Frances Bean Cobain

When Kendall Jenner tweeted "Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann," Frances Bean Cobain's teen spirit got the best of her and retorted "Oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned & homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn't accessible" before delivering this final blow.


Kenneth Cole

Kenneth Cole created quite the stir when he capitalized on the Syria crisis to promote his goods.


Joan Rivers

When it comes to Joan Rivers, nothing is off-limits — not her daughter's life and certainly not national icons and inspirations like Helen Keller (see also Bethany Hamilton tweet above).


Charlie Sheen

What do you do when classmates pick on your kid at school? Well, if you're Charlie Sheen, you urge your fans to deliver dog excrement to said classmates' doors. Here's his call to arms in its entirety: 

CADRE! This is a legitimate call to arms. my daughter Sam was bullied out of Viewpoint school and then called a liar. it's on! if you have a rotted egg a roll of toilet paper or some dog s***; I urge u to deliver it with "extreme prejudice" to their KamPuss run by trolls and charlatans. make me proud. we will not tolerate this level of abhorrent disrespect towards the child of your favorite Warlock. And if your feeling the "show and tell" of it all, smear the s*** to spell one name on the front door; VICTORIA. eat that loser. c hashtag HYLMN?


Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber may have thought he won a battle with this tweet, but Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney definitely won the war by hilariously sending out a string of tweets while pretending to be the Biebs.


Joan Rivers

If it were about anyone else, this tweet would be particularly shocking. Sadly, it wasn't the most tawdry thing said about Miley Cyrus this year. That honor might belong to Cyrus herself.


Amanda Bynes

Someone should tell Bynes that (a) tweeting in your bra is a major faux pas and (b) at 100 pounds, a stiff wind would knock the already teetering actress over.


Joe Rogan

The people in Independence Day invited the aliens to land, and look how well that turned out for them. Movies can be cautionary tales, people.


Adam Levine

If we had to guess by this tweet directed toward Lady Gaga, we'd say Adam Levine is not one of Gaga's little monsters — he just acts like a little monster sometimes.


Heidi Klum

Dear Santa, all we want for Christmas is a smokin' hot bod like mom-of-four Heidi Klum's. Thanks!


50 Cent

Wait... say what?!


Lisa Lampanelli

Lisa Lampanelli's cavalier use of the N-word in this tweet caused such a commotion that Lena Dunham had to go on record to say she did not condone that kind of language.


Evan Rachel Wood

Poor Evan Rachel Wood! We can't imagine what it must have been like to have a paparazzi steal a shot of such a sacred, intimate moment.


Amanda Bynes

Despite Amanda Bynes' multiple tweets on the subject of her weight, 135 pounds does not an eating disorder make.


Jaden Smith

Ironically, many of Jaden Smith's tweets are filled with spelling and grammar errors. You know, things you learn to avoid by going to school.


Holly Madison

Um, gross? Holly Madison was either hacked or she is referencing her new baby's bowel habits. Either way ... TMI, Madison. TMI.
