5 Celebrities Who’ve Slammed Social Media

Not understanding why people have social media accounts, these 5 celebrities have all slammed the likes of twitter, facebook and instagram. Staying that it only destroys their privacy and exposes them when they want to be left alone, these stars don’t understand why any celebs have joined social media websites because they think it’s counterproductive and can even have negative effects if you say something inappropriate or see negative comments about yourself. Here are their own personal views on why they don’t like social media.

Robert Pattinson

70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Robert doesn’t want to be a part of it: “That thing causes me so many problems! I don’t want to contribute to it whatsoever. That thing is a nightmare. For my life, the worst invention ever.”

Amy Poehler
71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - NBC After Party - Arrivals

Amy slams how people act on social media: ”I’m not a real social media person. I’m not on Twitter. I try not to read too much online because I always get my feelings hurt, even if someone’s flattering you. Like, somebody tweeting, ‘Call me crazy, but I think Amy Poehler’s attractive.’ And you’re like, ‘Okay? Thank you?’ Or like someone writing, ‘I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that I’d have sex with Amy Poehler.’  The amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control. The idea of, ‘This is my face and everyone needs to see it all the time,’ is so far from the privacy that people used to seek. Now everyone acts the way ’80s performance artists used to act.”

Daniel Radcliffe
57th Annual BFI London Film Festival - "Kill Your Darlings" Screening - Arrivals

Daniel thinks celebs who are on twitter have a double standard: “I don’t have Twitter and I don’t have Facebook, and I think that makes things a lot easier. If you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you’re doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously.”

George Clooney
"Monuments Men" New York City Premiere - Arrivals

George rather bluntly says he would rather do anything else over join facebook: “I’d rather have a rectal examination on live TV by a fellow with cold hands than have a Facebook page.”

Keira Knightley
"Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" UK Premiere - Arrivals

Keira briefly joined twitter but quickly deleted her account when she realized how she felt about: “It made me feel a little bit like being in a school playground and not being popular and standing on the sidelines kind of going, ‘Argh’.”
