Celebrities Who Treat Their Fans Like Trash – The Mean Stars Site
In my opinion, it’s always so disappointing to find out that a celebrity you’ve seen in concert, or on a TV show, or in a movie or where ever else, turns out to be a pervert, jerk, snob, or weirdo in real life, especially when their screen or stage persona seems so friendly and kind – such as Bill Cosby or Chris O’Dowd (as of 2017, O’Dowd is arguably best known for playing the nice cop character, Rhodes, in the movie “Bridesmaids“).
I found out about the “Mean Stars” site through an article called “Celebrities who treat their fans like trash”

Celebrities who treat their fans like trash -by Nicki Swift
When you’re rich and famous, it’s not hard to lose sight of the little people. While it can’t be easy to be the center of attention, celebrities have the choice to either be cool about their fans’ overzealous adulation or to be a total celebri-jerk about it. Here are some stars who, allegedly, have done some pretty terrible things to us pathetic, regular people.
Rihanna is a rude girl, at least to some fans. “My coworker won free tickets and backstage passes to see Rihanna about a year after they were first playing ‘Umbrella’ on the radio,” a former fan told Thought Catalog.
“When her kids finally got the chance to go meet Rihanna, she was sitting at her makeup booth and refused to face them, or even look at them. When they asked for her autograph, she told the closest backup dancer to forge it for them and shooed them away.”
In 2014, Rihanna posted a frowny face on Twitter and linked to a picture of a 16-year-old fan’s prom dress, which was similar to a Wile E. Coyote-inspired costume the singer wore to an awards show a few years earlier.
She tweeted (via The Huffington Post), “Dark Thot Rises” and “#prombat” in response to the unitard and shared the bullying image with tens of millions of people, alienating countless fans, and completely ruining one fan’s prom memories. We had to look up “thot,” and it’s not nice.
Bale has been caught on tape berating crew members on set, and he was arrested for freaking out at family members during a press tour, so his anger issues are common knowledge.
However, the actor’s so-called former PR agent alleges the Black Knight’s behavior towards fans is even worse, recounting an instance when Bale berated little girls to tears after they’d asked him for an autograph, and another event that involved Bale faxing a fan an elaborate death threat involving a screwdriver.
Bale was never charged for the threat, nor his crimes against Batman’s voice.
When he’s not busting ghosts, he’s breaking hearts. While it would seem unlikely that the affable comedian is a terrible guy, comedy legend and vodka baron Dan Aykroyd has been rated one of MeanStars meanest.
It’s alleged that Aykroyd regularly surrounds himself with “goons,” and demands special treatment at restaurants and movie theaters.
Even back in 2004, MSNBC caught Aykroyd berating Americans for “consumerism” at a promotional event for his holiday movie, Christmas With the Kranks. According to the news network, the Ghostbuster said, “the common enemy in North America is the Western consumer,” who he blamed for “these wars.” Guess we shouldn’t be buying those Ray Stantz action figures.
Cameron Diaz is notoriously reluctant to sign autographs, and she’s apparently even against interacting with fans when it’s part of the job. Witnesses told Radar Online that the actress was not interested in the fans at a fan premiere of Sex Tape (2014), “It’s not like the fans were following them at a hotel or restaurant, it was a film premiere with fans,” the insider said. “When Cameron was spotted, she…refused the fans [photos and autographs] telling them, ‘If I did it for you, I’d have have to do it for everyone,’ before storming off.”
The source noted that even if she “did it for everyone,” it probably wouldn’t have taken long. “Cameron was as unfriendly as can be and it was really disappointing…There were literally only four of five fans waiting and asking for them when they left. It was not a huge crowd and would have taken less time for them to sign an autograph or take a picture rather than giving a lecture about not doing it.”
