twitchys 2013

If you’re looking for people who deleted their embarrassing tweets, head on over to our deleted tweets awards post. Today’s awards are for 2013’s best, unabashed, whole-hog celebrity Twitter meltdowns.

Without further delay, here are Twitchy’s five favorites.

5) Cher may not be very good at grammar, spelling, punctuation, or logic, but her message in this rant came through loud and clear: American citizens who advocate for limited government are morally equivalent to the Islamic terrorists who blew up the World Trade Center buildings.

To her credit she hasn’t deleted those tweets. But if she could turn back time, would she publish them in the first place? Probably!

4)  Actor Alec Baldwin was unhappy about a piece in the Daily Mail suggesting that his wife was busy tweeting during the funeral of James Gandolfini — so unhappy that he called the reporter who wrote the piece a “toxic little queen”:!/ABFalecbaldwin/status/350387987672080384

He tried to delete his tweets, but he should know by now, that trick just doesn’t work. Twitchy is forever!

3) When George Zimmerman was acquitted, a lot of liberals went off the deep end. Actor Marlon Wayans was one of them:

2) After Congress rejected Manchin-Toomey gun control legislation in April, this is what model Christine Teigen had to say:!/chrissyteigen/status/324639997619748865

Pause. Get some sleep. Resume:


An acceptance speech from Christine Teigen:

1) Cher is the only celeb to win not one but two of Twitchy’s coveted 2013 meltdown awards. Congratulations!

Get it? She suggests Tea Party officials should be assassinated. When it comes to unhinged Twitter rants, Cher just can’t be beat.


The 2013 Twitchys: Top 20 deleted tweets of the year

  • whateverdear

    How is it that someone as rich as Cher can’t buy a keyboard with a capslock that works? #questionsquestions

    • Chevypowered

      She probably had the “caps lock” on for so long the caps light indicator malfunctioned.

      • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      It would be even more amusing imagining that she was dictating these tweets to her secretary.

  • Jack Deth

    How would you like to be the poor NSA cubicle drone monitoring Cher’s laptop camera’s capabilities while she’s in the middle of a rant?

    Mind and Eye Bleach are available in the lobby!

    • Worship Dancer

      now come on you KNOW they aren’t monitoring precious cher – she’s one of THEM. they only monitor those who are NOT marching in lockstep with dear leader.

      • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        They monitor everyone. They even monitor each other.

        • Worship Dancer

          nah they see Cher and say oh she’s one of the clueless ones – no need to follow.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    Did Waymans ever move to Paris?

    • nc ✓s & balances

      Or fly to the moon?

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

        Guessing he’s been that high once or twice.

    • petrossa

      paris is way worse then where he is now. He’d run for his life. Only criminals have guns.

    • Worship Dancer

      yea that was my question – is he still here? thought he was going to paris. and THEN he posts about going to the moon. i thought he was going to paris – why is he still here?

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Alky Baldwin, spewing more hate against specific gay people than Phil Robertson ever did, and he gets a pass. “Awww, that’s just Alec being Alec!”– is that what it is?

    It’s one thing if you use Twitter to speechify like the others did. Cher, Teigen– using Twitter to attack certain types. Wayans– a bit closer to personal vituperation against Zimmerman, joking about him dying young anyway. But they mostly kept it on a broad message, overall.

    Then comes Alky, threatening violence against a particular (he supposes) gay man, over a personal slight, resorting to “hate speech.” But then Alky gets a since-canceled TV show (and seemingly not because of GLAAD), which he loses for, again, threatening a specific (he supposes) gay man.

    He shoulda been tops for 2013. The others at least tried to relate their pearl-clutching to something besides themselves.

    • Catchance

      They’re all so full of themselves that they can’t even imagine someone who disagrees with them being correct. For me it was Tiegen who was the worst (maybe because I’m used to Cher and Alec). She simply ignored the rationality of others’ comments and called them morons.

    • Paige Jackson

      It’s difficult to imagine Baldwin being that verbally abusive *without* also being physically abusive. Hymenoptera (or whatever his latest consort’s name is) better have gotten a prenup and some security personnel.

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    Just, just maybe the feral wittle child will have a birdie fly up and land on her shoulder, and chirps the melody and the words “If I Could Turn Back Time, I’d Find Away To Fix My Own Self”…

  • AmericanMom

    Cher, an ultra liberal, has shown her intolerance and disgust of multi-millions of people who don’t think like she does. Irrelevancy and advancing age are hard on Hollywood types and those who lash out before they burn out.

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    In response to:

    “I’d like to be in america feeling safe and happy with the choices my government makes. Crayzeeeeeeeee thoughts.—

    Pardon us while we think for ourselves…there is no one else that knows what we want or need.

  • PeterP

    The five essential traits of radical leftists:

    1) hypocrisy – they rarely practice what they preach;

    2) unbridled anger – their arguments are incoherent because their judgment is blurred;

    3) low self-esteem – they don’t like themselves and project that self hatred onto others, especially those who do like themselves;

    4) certainty – liberals are true believers. They cannot fathom anyone having a different world view than them because they assume that their world view is 100% accurate. They call this open-mindedness; and

    5) need for recognition – there has never been a liberal who did not publicly and stridently announce his wonderfulness to the world. Liberals have a strong need to be patted on the back. They form their political positions with an eye toward maximizing encomiums.

    • LegalizeShemp

      Yes, they always call the media and make sure there’s a camera crew there when they show up at the Children’s Cancer Ward or the Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless

      • PeterP

        Yes. See Comic Relief, Farm Aid and the like. Why not just donate the proceeds of your next movie, comedy show or concert and don’t tell anyone where the money is going?

    • PeterP

      If thoughtless, mean-spirited, hate-filled, racist, sexist, homophobic conservatives didn’t exist, liberals would have to invent them. Oh, wait, they did.

    How big of a Tax Break did you get to make such a comment, hmmmm?

    So, Marxist Communism is your belief system versus, being born into Natural Laws, Natural Rights, Sovereignty, a Constitutionally Free Republic, One Nation Under God Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Your moniker reminds me, in conjunction with what Christine Teigen said, of the old dictum (from a judge, but it’s been attributed to Mark Twain also) about how nobody’s life, liberty or property is ever safe, as long as the Legislature is in session.

      • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

        Yes. Freedom, Liberty, Privacy, Private Property Mr. Twain was versed in, because holding on to being born ‘into’ it, is a grasp that, that he must have had in a listening heart and mind and learned as best, not all he desired, not just the sweetness of life yet, of the subjugators and saboteurs, like that many a tyrant he saw and must have read about to have been able to write such splendid works. For granted his life he did not partake. Much so, is the world that they believe of only ‘their’ suffrage, and yet, not able to look within and see they too live in glory and not suffrage.

        • AlmostaCowboy

          Say what?

      • TexasMom2012

        And that is exactly why the Texas Constitution only pays our Congress Critters part time and has them in session once every two years…

    • MNWoman

      That was the tweet in her entire meltdown that made me laugh. The rest just irritated me for her irrational thoughts.

      Basically, she is an Obamabot who is pissed her messiah didn’t get his way.

      • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

        It is not amusing, and is more than interesting to find the folks that idolize themselves, falling down and idolizing other mere mortals as to see that there appears to be a distinct fascination to say the least; as to what in heavens name do they really “know” they will get from it is beyond the true reasoning.

        • MNWoman

          Her rants are insane. I mean, we have laws already in place to make murder (with guns, knives, bombs, poison and so on) illegal. What do these people think adding more laws will do to prevent criminals from murdering people?

  • Perry

    Someone’s teenage son got killed and was unjustly let free. Not cool! Ball kid white kid spanish kid… It was a KID! Sum1s child. Smfh

    Okay, Marlon, perhaps you can rant again when you read about a white kid being killed. I mean, you just implied your outrage isn’t about the fact that Trayvon was black, only that he was a ‘kid’.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      Regardless of people being outraged about Trayvon being black or a kid, anyone who doesn’t understand why Zimmerman was found Not Guilty of murder is clearly not paying any attention to the facts and evidence of the trial.

      • MNWoman

        Oh, it was obvious most of those outraged knew nothing of the facts of the case.

        Arrggghhh…just talking about it makes me mad all over again.

        I remember one of the arguments was that the police ordered Zimmerman not to follow Martin. NOT TRUE! The 911 dispater, who is not a cop, just said they didn’t need him to do that. The dispatcher was lookng out for GZ’s safety.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          Yeah, so many are way too confused on the whole dispatcher thing. From GZ’s heavy breathing during the call the dispatcher could tell he was following Trayvon, and the dispatcher simply said, “We don’t need you to do that.” As you already know, dispatchers are not sworn personnel and don’t give lawful orders, they give suggestions. And when a person listens to that recording, it’s pretty obvious that GZ says, “OK” and his breathing returns to normal – obviously he stopped, turned around and was walking back to meet the officers who were en route. At that point, he was a few buildings away from Trayvon and heading in the other direction.

          Even according to Trayvon’s own mother, the kid made it all the way back to where his father lived, and the friend on the phone confirmed Trayvon said he was right outside his dad’s place. He was home free. All he had to do was…go inside. End of story. But when you look at an overhead map of where things occurred, the altercation happened, it was away from his father’s place. That tells anyone with some common sense that Trayvon, instead of simply going inside, decided to play bad(_)_), turn around and go after Zimmerman. Not to mention, witnesses placed Trayvon on top of Zimmerman on the ground. Zimmerman had wounds to his head (front and back which only prove his version of events), Trayvon has wounds on his knuckles…what does that tell us?

          So sick and tired of folks not looking at and reviewing the facts and evidence and instead choosing to pretend that Trayvon was just some innocent kid skipping home from the store when he was shot out of nowhere and for no reason.

          • DwellsInFire

            Yeah, that Wayans guy, and all liberals for that matter, just don’t understand the concept of self defense. Below is the best video on the details of the case that you won’t hear about through the liberal media.


          • Michelle ✓classified

            All the proved and solid evidence confirms Zimmerman’s version of the events that night – there is nothing that came out in his trial that refuted anything he said, and all evidence that did come out in the trial only supported his version. People with an agenda do not care about facts and reality, and that became the norm during the Rodney King trial for LAPD – folks who didn’t pay attention to the ENTIRE truth chose to create their own reality.

          • GsGirl

            I remember after the RK verdict how a lot of folks who were burning down their own city had come over to where I live (which was about 10 miles from the heart of it all!), and they were really puffed up and acting like they were going to shoot anyone who was white. I was trying to park in a spot at the market, and someone who identified herself as from the riot area pulled in ahead of me (just missing my car). I didn’t say anything, but she got out of her car and threatened me…scared the life out of me. I actually drove back home and didn’t get anything at the store then. I remember watching that poor truck driver (I can’t remember his name!) getting beaten on live TV at Florence and Normandie…dragged out of the cab and stomped on…I was horrified…and God knows how much worse it is now, especially with social media…it only takes one match to light a fire.

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Koreatown, 1992, during the height of the Rodney King riots: “You loot, we shoot.” Second Amendment at work, as Chief Gates had no good plan to quell the riots or keep them from metastasizing.


          • GsGirl

            Wow…you’re right…I remember that now…and I remember that Chief Gates had no idea that things would get this out of hand…it’s pretty sad when you have to ask RK to get on live TV and say (or rather stutter), “can’t we all just get along”.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            It’s not that Gates had no good plan, the animals outnumbered the officers. The decision to let sh*t burn came down because the animals even shot at fire fighters on scene to battle the fires. Funk that – let them burn down their own part of the city, which is exactly what we let it do while the National Guard was called in to protect surrounding areas. And SERIOUS kudos to the Asian store owners for having the balls to use deadly force to protect their property.

          • AdoEdem

            Proof of yet more public school epic fail: the looters should have known better than to mess with Korean immigrants. Their country of origin has seen just about as many invasions as Poland, invented one of the most brutal of martial arts known to man, and treasures a native dog that can take down tigers without breaking a proverbial sweat.

            In short, anyone who messes with a group of Koreans –particularly well-armed ones defending their homes and livelihoods — is gunning hard for a Darwin award.

          • TexasMom2012

            This is why an armed society is a polite society. I am grateful for open carry and concealed carry in my state! A whole lot of the women here carry as well as the men… After the Luby’s massacre in Killeen where people had left their weapons in their vehicles, I think the carry laws got a whole lot better and criminals a lot less sure of themselves.

            And of course, no one remembers that two of the officers were acquitted in BOTH RK trials– and that one of the double-acquitted officers was an earlier incarnation of “white Hispanic,” i.e., Officer Briseno, who was tried only because the tape showed him “stomping” on King, when in fact he had his foot on King’s back telling him to “Stay down, and you won’t keep getting hit, man!”, and was trying to hold him down that way.

            But those sorts of facts have been conveniently filed away in Cabinet #13, where most people are concerned. John Ford’s Law — “Print the legend.”

          • Michelle ✓classified

            The facts are indeed out there for anyone with an interest in the truth beyond the picture the media so successfully painted. That video tape was actually 20+ mins. long, was played in its entirety for the jury with each and every step of it explained to them. The media on the other hand played nothing more than a sensational snippet without the backstory and precisely what lead up to that moment. It all boiled down to LAPD’s policy on use of force. There were clear and established procedures, the officers at the scene followed them all by the book, leading up to eventually leaving nothing for them to employ but the PR-24 and deadly force – and King continued to resist.

            If you’re at all interested guy, a very good book to read on the matter is Presumed Guilty by (then) Sgt. Stacey Koon. Very key information that the media willfully chose to not disclose to the public.

      • Clete Torres

        Facts don’t matter. A poor little angelic 12 year old got killed.

        Oh yeah, he was a dirtbag 17-18 year old with a record. Forgot.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          Tremendously clear and obvious (to those of us with a brain) of the media’s solid attempt at brainwashing the masses. FFS, a major news editor was FIRED for editing the 911 tape to make Zimmerman appear racist – how much more BS does the general public need to see before they GET IT?

      I have a close friend who owns a home security company, and I recently found out he works on Cher’s house in Malibu. So I told him about her mental meltdowns on Twitter and asked what she’s like in person – he said she pretty much does the same in person – always yelling, never content and barks at people like they’re her servants. Consider me not surprised.

      • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Yep, shes a loon on and off twitter. Been there done that.

            George Clooney – Positively delightful and humble
            Brad Pitt – Total bad(_)_), no high maintenance.
            Dixie Chicks – Broke all the rules laid out that night, total Prima Donnas each and every one of them.
            Hallie Barry – Adorable and respectful of the rules
            Muhammad Ali – I fell in love, he was SO kind.
            Stevie Wonder – a man touched by God
            Mariah Carey – HIGH AS A KITE
