Some people think celebrities are predictable people who are all style and no substance. They toe the line and do and say the right things in order to keep up public appearances while high-dollar checks keep rolling in. But sometimes they prove that they’re human too by blowing up in public. These celeb freakouts are usually both fascinating and disturbing to watch because we never know what’s going to happen.
Some of them are so rough, they’ll haunt you forever. So let’s remember the most interesting celeb freakouts now. From Will Smith slapping Chris Rock to Brittney’s tragic battle with mental health problems, this list gets a bit wild. Enjoy it now.
Smith had one of the most notorious celeb freakouts ever when he embarrassed himself at the 2022 Oscars. Comedian Chris Rock hosted the event and made a tasteless joke about Smith’s wife, Jada. He compared her to G.I. Joe, an insensitive comment because of Pinkett Smith’s alopecia.
However, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor overreacted by striding up to Rock and slapping him across the face on worldwide television for everyone to see. It shocked the world but we won’t pretend that it didn’t make the event more enjoyable. Awkwardly, Smith went on to win the Best Actor Award later in the ceremony (via People).
