Famous Social Media Writing Errors By Famous People

People make writing mistakes on social media all the time. Maybe they’re just writing too quickly to proofread their work, or maybe they simply don’t know how to write properly. Either way, you’ll certainly find a spelling or grammatical mistake on your news feed every day.

Celebrities are included in this group. With more and more celebrities using social media for personal or professional reasons, many of them are finding themselves the topic of conversations when their tweets and posts contain writing errors. The following are some famous social media writing mistakes by famous people.

Chad Ochocinco

Chad Ochocinco is a professional football player in the NFL. In 2010, he was fined $26,000 for tweeting during one of his preseason games. Apparently the NFL has rules against a player’s use of social media, stating they cannot use it 90 minutes before the start of their game up until their post game media obligations are over. Not only did the topic go viral, but Ochocinco’s poorly written Twitter response to the issue also went viral.

50 Cent

50 Cent is always making enemies, and he decided to take out his frustration with French Montana through Twitter. Unfortunately, his poor use of grammar, spelling and punctuation got more buzz than his threat.

Lamar Odom

Even celebrities have to get creative with the 140-character limit, but Lamar Odom took it a step too far when he posted a message of random phrases that contained a variety of misspellings and grammatical errors.

Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson is known to be a passionate man, and he allows his passions to run through on his Twitter feed. Apparently, he’s also known to make up his own words, as some of his vocabulary cannot be found in the dictionary. Here’s to hoping he was just trying to be creative.

Lil’ Wayne

Someone should tell Lil’ Wayne that the “k” sound can also be made with a “c”. He should also be taught how to spell things appropriately, or at least use a spell checker.

Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver is a celebrity chef who likes to use his Twitter feed to inform the world of news he hears as well as his own personal endeavors. When Oliver heard a story about UK farmers, he turned to Twitter. Unfortunately his poor spelling, grammar and punctuation got more buzz than the news he was trying to share.

Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige used Twitter to express her disdain for those who always question her intelligence. Unfortunately for Mary, her tweet was filled with spelling and grammatical errors, including misspelling the word “intelligence”.

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher made headlines when his tweet was misinformed. After hearing only bits and pieces about the Joe Paterno scandal at Penn State, Kutcher took to Twitter to mention his displeasure. His news feed then blew up with people attacking him for endorsing Paterno’s behavior, and Kutcher then handed his Twitter account over to a third party. This just proves that it’s not always about spelling and grammar, but also about your content.
