Have you been blocked by a celebrity on Twitter?


#1

Or just had an argument or run-in with one?

Tell all.

Over the last fortnight I’ve been blocked by:

Gemma Arterton, Emily Blunt, Megan Fox, Scarlett Johansson, Rosario Dawson,
Jennifer Lawrence and Danny DeVito.

Beat that.


#2

What are you doing to earn such opprobrium?


#3

Haha. Can you tell us why you’ve been blocked by each one?

(And no, I don’t think I’ve ever really engaged with a celebrity on Twitter)


#4

Any reason why you’ve managed to upset/troll a clutch of attractive female actors (and Danny DeVito).


#5

Yeah this sounds fucked. Are you a raging MRA in disguise? None of those sound like very ‘blocky’ people to start with?


#6

I have a protected account, so I don’t tweet at famous people unless they follow me.


#7

Saps, there’s something about me you might be interested to know


#8

Hi goatmeat


#9

Closest I’ve got is that I got blocked by a well-known blogger in my profession for pointing out that he’s a daft sexist.

So, to answer your question: no.

#11

is there a quick way of seeing if you’ve been blocked by anyone on there?


#13

Sexual harrassment mostly.


#14

Jokes (hopefully?) aside, I really would like to know why. Do you even know?


#15

My solicitor has contacted me (she follows my DiS postings very closely) and has advised met to say that I haven’t been blocked by these people. In fact I haven’t engaged with them on Twitter at all.

I have camped out in their back gardens though.


#16

My god! Is this thread just a sham to try to weed out all the people who think they’re too good for social media?


#17

Saps this is a weird thread and you should probably back out now.


#18

can’t even imagine a circumstance in which i’d tweet a celebrity


#19

I thought people would realise I was joking.

I don’t exactly have an edgy persona on here.

I’ve never had any celebrity beeves, just wondered if anyone else has.


#20

Some celebrities and bands like to ‘metweet’ (retweet praise about themselves), and appreciate a mention if you’re giving something of theirs a ‘big-up’.


#21

not a huge celeb, but a couple of years back i had a mini-beef with tv presenter/actor/anti-bullying campaigner adam pearson:

iirc, he was mocking an apprentice candidate for her allegedly messy hair - she was a black woman who had pretty typical afro hair from what i could tell, so i simply asked him how these comments fit in with his anti-bullying stance. he had a go at me for not recognising that he was joking, so i just left him to it. don’t recall if he blocked me or not.
