Celebs Who Got Haters Back In The Best Possible Way

We all love when haters and trolls put celebrities in their place, especially those celebs who seem to deserve a bit of a reality check every now and then. These comments used to go unanswered more often than not, but these days celebrities are fighting back and some of their comebacks have our jaws hitting the floor. Perhaps they've grown sick of being at the butt end of jokes and the prime targets for the public's negativity. Fame comes at a price but being walked all over for the sake of maintaining their image is no longer one of them. Haters beware! Celebrities are no longer putting up with your crap!

James Blunt

English singer and songwriter James Blunt made his claim to fame with hit songs like "You're Beautiful" and "Goodbye My Lover," tunes that most can't stand to listen to anymore. Not due to Blunt's lack of talent, but due to, well, them being overplayed. Blunt explains it best in an interview with HELLO! Magazine saying, "There was one song that was force-fed down people's throats — 'You're Beautiful' — and it became annoying. And then people start to associate the artist with the same word."

While he has announced that his newest album will be released sometime this year, lately he's been making his way into the media more for his epic twitter comebacks than his music career. His haters often throw shade his way in regards to his "annoying" and "whiney" music, but he isn't one to let them get away with it. BuzzFeed gathered up some of his most epic comebacks on twitter, and his followers just can't get enough! Most of his responses to his haters remind them that his most popular album sold 20 million copies, implying that they can say what they want because it won't change the fact that he's a successful artist, but it's his unique way of turning basically every hater's tweet into some sort of sexual innuendo that has us all laughing our asses off. For example, one hater tweeted, "Why does James Blunt sing like his willy is being stood on?" to which Blunt replied, "Damn thing's always getting caught under my feet." It truly doesn't get better than that!

Iggy Azalea

It all started when rap legend Snoop Dogg posted a less-than-kind meme insulting Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. We've all seen it by now. It depicts what seems to be an albino black woman in a less than flattering pose with the caption "Iggy Azalea No Make Up." Understandably, Azalea was pretty pissed since it referenced a recent photo of her out in public without makeup on taken by the paparazzi. God forbid a woman walks out of their house without her face on! According to BuzzFeed, Azalea shot back at the rapper with some seriously personal tweets. She claims Mr. Dogg would often send his bodyguards to ask her if he could take photos with her when they happened to be at the same show and even described an incident where her bodyguard saved his friend's life.

Things went back and forth between the two for a while for no apparent reason, until Snoop posted a meme comparing Azalea to Marlon Wayans character in White Chicks . If you're not familiar with the film, it's probably the furthest Snoop could have gone from a compliment. This time Azalea didn't call him out on social media and instead got back at him in the most epic way. For Halloween she dressed as the character and it was spot on! E! News reported that she even captioned a photo that she took in the costume, "Bye haterzzzzz" ultimately shutting up Snoop for good.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock might be one of the most loved actresses in Hollywood, and her response to winning a Razzie for worst actress in 2010 just makes fans love her that much more. In 2009, the gorgeous actress appeared alongside Bradley Cooper, and Thomas Haden Church in the 20th Century Fox comedy film, All About Steve. If you don't recall the film, it's likely because you didn't go see it. In fact, most of the world chose not to see the movie and it was out on DVD just three months after it hit theatres. Rotten Tomatoes gave it an abysmal 7 percent approval rating, and it was nominated the following year for a Razzie for worst film. Alongside this nomination, Bullock was also nominated for worst actress in the movie, and her acceptance speech was certainly one Razzie members will never forget.

Bullock hilariously walks on stage dragging behind her a wagon full of All About Steve DVDs according to MTV News, which she brought as a gift for each of the Razzie members. After implying that the only reason she won was because she showed up, Bullock encourages them to all watch the movie and reconsider her award, one that she would be willing to give back if they changed their minds. Or she provides them with a slightly more time consuming option saying during her acceptance speech, "I brought the shooting script. I'm willing to go through page by page, read the lines the way I did it in the film and, if anyone wants to give me a line-read of how I could've done it better ... we can do this till about 4 o'clock in the morning." The following day Bullock won another award, an Oscar for best actress in The Blind Side, an award she claimed would proudly sit next to her Razzie.

Frankie Muniz

Malcolm in the Middle was without a doubt the hottest family-friendly television show in the early 2000s, starring Frankie Muniz as Malcolm. Like most child actors do, Muniz has struggled to find his next big project, but that certainly doesn't mean he's had trouble finding work appearing in the Sharknado franchise as well as popping up on several popular television shows like Criminal Minds and Last Man Standing. So when a Twitter user had something to say about Muniz's acting skills, few people expected him to respond at all, let alone respond with an epic shut down.

According to Perez Hilton someone tagged Muniz in a tweet calling his acting awful saying, "sorry but, it is." Muniz shocked the media with his response saying, "Yeah, but being retired with $40,000,000.00 at 19 has not been awful. Good luck moving out of your mom's house before you're 35." Touche! While he might be a millionaire, according to his IMDb page he's far from retired and appears in several movies coming out this year.

President Obama

Before President Trump sat in the Oval Office, he put much of his time and effort into proving President Obama wasn't an American citizen, even making it the foundation of his campaign. Even though there was no reason to think Obama was born anywhere else, he released his birth certificate to the public according to CNN. Several days later he joked about his questioned citizenship at the annual White House Correspondents dinner with a video, "... just in case there are any lingering questions, tonight I'm prepared to go a step further. Tonight for the first time I am releasing my official birth video." The audience broke out in laughter when the video was played and to their surprise, "The Circle of Life" filled the room and the introduction of The Lion King showing off baby Simba appeared on the screen. It was obviously a joke, but Obama made sure to point that out so the video wouldn't be misinterpreted.

Even though that went down in 2011 and Trump was in the audience to witness Obama shut down his haters, it wasn't until 2016 that he admitted he was wrong about Obama's citizenship. According to a report by CNN, Trump didn't issue an apology for his claims but simply admitted he was wrong during an unveiling of one of his new hotels. How did Obama respond? It seems he couldn't care less about the ridiculous claims made by Trump and joked with reporters saying, "I was pretty confident about where I was born."


Eminem, aka Marshal Mathers, aka Slim Shady is known for not holding anything back when it comes to his music. He not only throws shade at other celebrities, but he uses practically every derogatory term in existence. Included in his list of go-to adjectives often included in his lyrics are "gay" and "f***ot," a habit which has understandably given him the reputation of being homophobic. The rapper has gone on record many times saying he has absolutely no problem with the LGBT community, and explained his use of these words in an interview with Rolling Stone. When asked why he chooses to use these words in his lyrics he said, "It was more like calling someone a bitch or a punk or a*****e ... I poke fun at other people, myself. But the real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all." Additionally he explains that there is a difference between the personas he creates when making music and his own personal opinions.

Even though he has endorsed gay marriage and famously performed with Elton John to demonstrate his alliance with the LGBT community, most people still consider him to be homophobic, but that hasn't encouraged him to bite his tongue. The rapper infamously showed up his haters in an appearance in the controversial film The Interview by stating in the movie that people think he's homophobic because he's actually gay. Reported by CinemaBlend, the whole scene was a joke for the sake of the movie but viewers just loved how he hilariously played into his haters.

J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter creator and famous novelist J.K. Rowling is known to be vocal regarding Trump and his decision making since entering the White House. Even though she has made it a point to share her opinions throughout the election, it seems many of her fans just realized that she's not a fan of the new president, and have been threatening to burn her books and any Harry Potter merchandise. Entertainment Weekly reported on the haters who, in true Voldemort fashion, have been attacking the writer for voicing her own opinion and not sharing in their beliefs.

When one particular ex-fan learned how one of their beloved writers was against Trump's Muslim ban they claimed they'd be burning all of Rowling's books as well as all Harry Potter DVDs. The writer kindly took a screenshot of this person's tweet so she could blur out their Twitter handle when she replied, likely to save this person from being harassed by fans who've stayed loyal to her career regardless of her political views. Perhaps she had a feeling her response would inspire articles on practically every entertainment based website and in tons of magazines when she tweeted, "Well, the fumes from the DVDs might be toxic and I've still got your money, so by all means borrow my lighter." Another hater directed multiple tweets toward Rowling claiming she was disgusted and would never read her work again. In the best response yet Rowling tweeted, "Guess it's true what they say: you can lead a girl to books about the rise and fall of an autocrat, but you still can't make her think." Perhaps she just needs to read the books again, since she seemed to have misunderstood what they were about. Too bad she burned them...

Gabourey Sidibe

Best known for her characters in Precious, Empire, and American Horror Story, Gabourey Sidibe doesn't have the typical Hollywood physique, and her haters certainly don't let her forget it. After making an appearance on the Golden Globes red carpet, the haters couldn't let the actress get away with being on the heavier side and flooded her photos with negative comments about her dress and appearance. According to Us Weekly, haters were either too cruel to repeat or blamed her stylist for dressing her in such a gorgeous gown. One hater even tweeted, "Clearly Gabby's stylist doesn't like her and has no problem stealing her money."

Sidibe let her haters know how much their words affect her by tweeting, "To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night." Her hilarious tweet was received with an abundance of support from fans and women alike, shutting up the haters and body shamers real quick!

Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer was asked about her haters in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, and she mentioned how she always fear for the worst. "With Trainwreck coming out, I was like, everyone's going to say, 'She's not pretty enough to be in this movie.' And then only one dude wrote that, and people really attacked him, and then he redacted that and wanted to date me." So who was this one dude? Even though she didn't give names many suspect she was talking about writer Jeffrey Wells since he called Schumer " ... a chubby-cheeked, whipsmart, not conventionally attractive, neurotically bothered female comic," in his opinion piece on the movie that drew a lot of attention. Wells didn't stop there either. He went on to say that "there's no way she'd be an object of heated romantic interest in the real world," and compared the comedian's appearance to looking like she could be Jennifer Aniston's heavier sister.

USA Today reported that Schumer didn't read the article written about her in poor taste, but she did express that she was grateful he was the only one. The next day she bared all in a photo she shared on Twitter, snubbing her haters by looking hot and refusing to apologize for her size. In the photo Schumer is wearing only a light colored pair of underwear and heels, and she's standing on stage with a mic in her hand presumably posing as if she were doing her stand up routine. The photo was captioned with, "I am a size 6 and have no plans of changing. This is it. Stay on or get off. Kisses!" Even though it doesn't directly mention Wells or his cruel comments, the timing couldn't have been a coincidence and many are saying that the photo was posted as a response. While Wells did receive a ton of backlash for his remarks and eventually apologized, he chalked his indelicacy up to the "HE brand", whatever that is.
