26. Blocked by UK celeb Mel Kershaw on Insta, all she did was post promos and adverts for stuff she was being paid for. It never once said paid promotion, so I mentioned it in the comments. Blocked.

27. Blocked by Chris Brown (Twitter) and famous Dex (Twitter/Instagram) because I tagged them in memes about them beating their girlfriends.

28. A famous female comedian died and I tweeted (without tagging) something along the lines of ‘why do all the good comedians have to go when Ricky Gervais is still making utter shit’ then went about my day.

Being the arsehole that he is, he was searching himself and RT’d my tweet about him and then blocked me while I got hundreds of abusive tweets from his fans.

29. I’m pretty sure this happened to quite a few people, but tweeting the sketch of the Zodiac Killer to Ted Cruz.

30. My boyfriend got blocked by Evgeni Malkin from the Pittsburgh Penguins for making a meme of him and Sydney Crosby kissing the Stanley Cup with the caption “Two Girls, One Cup”.

He was genuinely so excited to tell me and it made me love him even more.

31. Smashmouth announced a tour with Toad the Wet Sprocket, and announced a contest to name the tour. I suggested “The Washed Up Tour” and got insta-banned. No sense of humor.

32. I’m blocked by Chris D’Elia on everything, and he recorded it.

After seeing his Man on Fire special, I commented on his Instagram post “Man on Fire wasn’t great”. That’s it. Just my opinion on his special, although his previous work and podcasts are amazing. So he goes through the thousands of comments, sees mine, and blocks me on instagram. I find out weeks later. One day he tweets something and I reply “wait can you unblock me on IG?” He replies with a laugh and blocks me on twitter as well. The worst part is, he recorded himself blocking my twitter and posts it on Instagram. I can’t link you because I’m blocked, but scroll down to around June and you’ll see the video.

33. The guy who makes the Dilbert comics blocked me for tweeting erotic Garfield art at him.

“Block me if you raped all those women.”

42. I was banned by Tito Ortiz. He got himself trapped inside an elevator and didn’t appreciate me telling him his head was too heavy and he should’ve taken the stairs.

43. Blocked by Mike Doughty who is a musician and former frontman of a band in the 90s/00s called Soul Coughing.

The band broke up and most of the members hate him so he’s really bitter about Soul Coughing songs (he did a lot of drugs too so I think it Soul Coughing in general brings up a lot of bad memories).

He tweeted that he was reminiscing and listening to SC songs and how they were all shit. I replied and just mentioned that I had really fond memories of rocking out to SC while I was working at Subway in high school and he replied asking me if I wanted him to feel differently? Weird response but I replied again and said something to the effect of “absolutely not. You feel how you feel and that’s fine. Just pointing out that people tend to be their own worst critic”.


No shit. Like 2 months later the fucking dude released an album of him “covering” Soul Coughing songs solo.

It was so dumb. The dude owes 90% of his fanbase to the success of SC and when he went solo covered their stuff all the time. Bummed me out because I was a big fan and just wanted to be supportive.

44. Asked Sean Price to block me so he replied ‘done’ and then blocked me. RIP Sean Price

Instantly meaning in under 30 seconds.

46. Deadmau5 blocked me when I called him skrillex and asked him to dj my 8 year old son’s birthday party.

47. I’m blocked by Tyler Oakley (YouTuber) because in 7th grade, I tweeted “I don’t even like Tyler Oakley” and I’m guessing he searched his own name and blocked me.

48. My friend got blocked by Dr Phil on Instagram because she commented “daddy” on one of his posts.

49. I didn’t get blocked but back in the MySpace days I told Ice Cube if he was in my area he should come smoke a blunt with me. He replied, “Don’t do drugs” and unfriended me

50. I have a friend who was blocked by Smash Mouth for implying that the lead singer and Guy Fieri are the same person. He then sent a Cease and Desist to the radio station they work at. Sensitive guy, that Guy Fieri. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
