Before the The Hunger Games controversy and Washington Capitals' Joel Ward fiasco blew up on Twitter, celebs were already causing a fracas on the microblogging service, spewing racist and obscene tweets. Rappers like Asher Roth took a hit for making a Don Imus-like comment on his page. Rihanna recently caught flack for posting a racially ambiguous tweet aimed at her ex's new Vietnamese girlfriend. Even film critic Roger Ebert was condemned by fans and haters alike for tweeting disrespectful remarks in regards to the N-word. And those are just a few of the incidents. Keep reading for more shockingly racist celebrity tweets.
15. Alec Baldwin
Date: Sept. 18, 2011
There was a large group of conservatives that took actual offense to Alec Baldwin's tweets. Seriously. The 30 Rock star posted these comments on his Twitter page during the Emmy's broadcast, bringing a ton of heat to his page from the black community. While we wouldn't necessarily deem his remarks offensive, the ma##es have spoken.
14. Kat Stacks
Date: Jan. 4, 2011
You won't find Kat Stacks under the A-, B-, or even D-list crowd. That doesn’t cover up the fact that this overexposed celebrity groupie is a racist. After putting numerous rappers on blast on the Net, the industry's biggest jumpoff bragged about having a "Mexican washing my draws, "Jamaican braiding my hair," and a “cracker babysitting” her seed while serving time behind bars for citizenship issues. Funny coming from a slore whose clientele consisted of Hispanics and blacks. Has her deportation been confirmed yet?
13. Ricky Rubio
Date: April 22, 2012
Seems as if Spaniards view Mexicans in the same light as American conservative extremists. Rubio, the Minnesota Timberwolves Spanish phenom didn’t win over any fans with his remark about teammate Kevin Love: "Ok, he doesn't look like a mexican anymore but I think he looks even worst … Here is our superstar." Dude’s lucky Love aint stomp his face in like he did Louis Scola.
12. Tila Tequila
Date: Oct. 5, 2009
Power 105.1's Charlamange the God sparked a Twitter war with Tila Tequila after calling her out for seeking attention via [rip] tweets. The troubled model traded insults and racial epithets in the process, even profiling the black community for the radio personality's actions: "I see ignorance stemming from a certain demographic on here. It's quite sad to me..."
11. Soulja Boy
Date: June 2, 2009
DeAndre’s frustrations with his rap career inspired the hip-hop star to attack his bosses, labeling them “crackaz” and “CRACKERS” who’ve watered down his music and ruined his “music dream.” Not the best choice of words, obviously. 50 Cent should have groomed him on the proper Twitter etiquette for spazzing on your label.
10. Zab Judah
Date: June 2, 2011
Many consider Judah the welterweight version of Mike Tyson. Both f!ghters are Brooklynites, both dominated the ring in knockout fashion in their prime, and both have proven to be nut jobs. Weeks before his match with former WBA light welterweight champ, Amir Khan, Judah tweeted a racial low blow at his opponent. The tweet speaks for itself. Khan let his knuckle game do the talking in the ring.
Date: March 3, 2012
Ri-Ri's no stranger to controversy on Twitter. She's done everything from posting provocative pics to f!ghting fans. This time around the Barbadian pop princess proceeded to take a shot at Chris Brown’s new Vietnamese girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, tweeting an image of a rice cakes package—referring to a subliminal line featured in the “Birthday Cake” remix recorded with both artists. Breezy retaliated by throwing a few shots back at his ex in his "Theraflu" freestyle.
8. Floyd Mayweather
Date: Feb. 13, 2012
It's no secret that Money Mayweather is reckless with his words. The undefeated five-division world boxing champion had already disrespected Filippinos when racially attacking Manny Pacqiao on ESPN, and after Jeremy Lin set it off on the Lakers, he accredited the Linsanity hype to the baller's race. Every sports analyst and public figure declared Mayweather a bigot.

7. Chelsea Handler
Date: Oct. 14, 2010
Chelsea Handler has no filter when it comes to calling out celebs. Once she caught wind of Nick Cannon heading out on a comedy tour, she tweeted: "I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who's going to do the comedy?" The two engaged in a war of tweets, then Handler resorted to stereotyping Cannon by sending an image of a grape soda can with the message "@nickcannon pls drink this before you tweet me again." #Tasteless
6. Gilbert Gottfried
Date: March 12, 2011
As if sending out a tweet about the Japanese tsunami that k#lled over 15,000 people that was offensive to both Japanese and Jewish people, comedian Gilbert Gottfried followed up with another disturbing message that read: “I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘They’ll be another one floating by any minute now.'” He lost his gig as the Aflack duck shortly after.
5. Asher Roth
Date: April 24, 2009
After Don Imus called Rutgers's woman's basketball team a group of "nappy-headed hoes", Asher Roth attempted to make a joke riffing on the racist remark by tweeting: "At Rutgers stirring up a ruckus. Been a day of rest and relaxation, sorry Twitter -- hanging out with some nappy headed hoes." Still, we didn't expect this the dude whose infatuation with a 90s black teen idol, Lark Voorhies AKA Lisa Turtle, inspired the intro track for his debut album.
Date: Aug. 12, 2011
Whether he misinterpreted Jigga’s line or made a crude joke out of it, Moby played himself. The musician was ridiculed for sending out a tweet which implied that adding more black women in the MoMA would transform the landmark museum into "the new hood." This guy loves beefing with the hip-hop community.
3. Roger Ebert
Date: Jan. 5, 2011
For centuries, the tale of Huckleberry Finn been mired in racism. Ebert shared his thoughts on the modern version of the novel in the most indiscreet way possible, tweeting: "I'd rather be called a N***** than a Slave." That didn't go over so well. He later tweeted, "You know, this is very true. I'll never be called a N***** *or* a Slave, so I should have shut the **** up." Thumbs down, homie.
Date: March 8, 2012
Already under the media microscope for fellow White Girl Mob member V-n@sty's use of the word "******", Kreayshawn became public enemy number one when a stream of racist tweets poured down her timeline. Remarks such as "Sometimes I wish slavery was still goin' on” and "I don't need black fans anyway. Y'all don't buy albums," put some serious heat on Kreay. The next morning, she announced that her Twitter account had been hacked and that all the tweets were fake. She ended the Twitter announcement with an apology which included her saying, "I am sorry, I LOVE FRIED CHICKEN!". Hm.
1. Jessica Leandra
Date: May 7, 2012
Beauty doesn't necessarily equal brains. Ask FHM supermodel Jessica Leandra. After feeling se#ually hara##ed by an unnamed gas station attendant, she went on to call him a kaffir (synonym for the N-word), while throwing the slur "African monkeys" into the mix on her Twitter page. She lost all sponsorships, several modeling contracts, and the FHM Model of the Year title in the aftermath. And that's only in the first week.

I stop reading when they posted an kat stacks tweet smh like she famous. I remember one of my professor always told me calling or saying someone is racist is a sign of weekness I never understood what he was talking about until I see a lot of black community cry about the stupidest !! he always said to prove them wrong

I stopped at Alec Baldwin. If they consider that racist, then they're too damn sensitive. Time to man up.

None of these are really that bad except for the chick who called dude an African monkey and the Kreayshawn "i wish slavery was still going on" tweets. The Gilbert Gottfried ones are also bad considering the context of what was going on, but more insensitive for other reasons than racism.
But really none of the other ones bother me...

So, Soulja Boy wasn't being racist by saying "cracka."? I guess that was him "making an albeit corny jokee" ? No. lol. He's mad that he was signed off of a gimmick and then couldn't produce. Didn't nobody water down his music.
Guess it's easier to blame the white man than to actually say you suck. Is what it is lmao
