In July 2010, singer Mary J. Blige excitedly Tweeted that she had been accepted to Howard University. Unfortunately, the college then tweeted back saying that she was still in the application process and had not been accepted, causing a backlash amongst her fans.

"Why is that people always try to understand estimate my intelligents? They should never do that!"

Oh, Mary J. Lulz.

In September 2010, the heiress everyone loves to hate was arrested in Las Vegas, NV, for cocaine possession. Police reports indicated that the drug was found in her Chanel purse, and she publicly and vehemently denied that the purse belonged to her. Unfortunately for Paris, she forgot that the morning of her arrest, she tweeted:

"Love My New Chanel Purse I Got Today!"

The tweet also included a photo of the purse. Oops.

In May 2009, Today show weatherman Al Roker was called for jury duty. In a thoughtless but ultimately harmless breach of court rules, Roker tweeted a photo of potential jurors. Oops. Roker was the butt of countless jokes after the media caught wind of his mistake, with the New York Post running the story under the headline, "Oh, What A Twit!"

Roker apologized for the indiscretion, but also said that he thought people should lighten up a bit too. "I'm not breaking laws... just trying to share the experience of jury duty. One that I think is important and everyone should take part in," he later Tweeted.

In August 2010 rapper (and alleged grown man) 50cent took to his Twitter to complain about his grandmother making him take the garbage out. Yes, really. He tweeted:

"I can’t believe my grandmothers making me take Out the garbage I’m rich f—k this I’m going home I don’t need this s—t,"

Fiddy was surprised when his fans jumped on him for not being a better grandson. His tirades went on for most of a day, with Fiddy feeling increasingly misunderstood and wronged before he finally gave up.

Aw, boohoo, famous, wealthy celebrity! Here's a tissue.

Okay, so this guy isn't technically a celebrity, but he is a well-known Democratic U.S. Congressman, so we think he counts. Rep. Anthony Weiner gave us one of the most famous celebrity Twitter mistakes of all time in 2011, when he tried to send a private Twitter message containing a sexually explicit photo of his junk to a young woman in Seattle, WA. Unfortunately, Weiner accidentally tweeted the obscene pic to all of his followers instead.

At first, Weiner claimed he had been hacked (always a likely story), but he eventually had to come clean and admit to posting the image himself. Once the cat was out of the bag, he also admitted to sending naked pics and dirty text messages to other women as well, both before and during his marriage.

Once "Weinergate" went public, the Congressman was forced to resign.

Ashton Kutcher Defends Joe Paterno

This one is only funny because it happened to Ashton Kutcher. Former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was all over the news following accusations that Paterno helped cover up the rapes of assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Apparently, college football fan Ashton Kutcher was living under a rock somewhere, because he didn't get the memo about why Paterno had been fired. When Kutcher heard the news that Paterno had been let go, he Tweeted this to his millions of followers:

"How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."

The clueless Tweet infuriated fans around the world, and once someone clued Kutcher in about the details of the case, he issued a very contrite apology. Ouch.

Amanda Bynes Tweets Everything Embarrassing Ever

There's no way we could list all of the hilariously ridiculous things that actress Amanda Bynes has tweeted, but suffice to say, reading her Twitter feed was pretty entertaining for a while there.

After her drunk driving charge in 2012, Bynes Tweeted President Barack Obama for help. Hey, who hasn't done that? Bynes wrote,

"Hey @BarackObama…I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end."

Obviously, the President has nothing better to do than to get involved in Bynes' affairs, right?

And the President didn't come to her rescue. Thanks, Obama.

The troubled star also asked R&B singer Drake to "murder [her] vagina," insisted that media outlets only use photos that she herself had uploaded to Twitter, instead of candid paparazzi shots, told Rihanna that Chris Brown beat her because she's not pretty enough, and threatened to sue just about everyone. After her arrest for drug possession and allegedly throwing a bong out of her 36-story apartment building window, Bynes went even further off the rails, claiming a cop "slapped her vagina," and more. And all of this happened on Twitter, for our amusement. Lucky us!

The good news is that eventually Amanda's parents and the law stepped in and got her the help she obviously needed.
