It’s no secret that some celebrities seek longevity through publicity stunts, crafting memorable moments just to create a buzz. Whether it’s a “secret” make-out sesh on a beach or a button-pushing tweet, many stars know how to work an audience in both obvious and subtle ways. However, despite the well-worn saying, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity,” we think some stars would beg to differ. The following publicity stunts only ended up hurting these celebrities’ careers…

    That Trump photo was way over the line, too grows, I pity him and from this point I consider to be just positive about him. He ain't that bad, right? This was just too much! It just gain sympathy for him, it does not work the way she may have intended.

    Kathy Griffin may have taken it too far, but the hypocrisy of the right on that issue is hilarious. I remember seeing right-wingers hang (and burn) Obama in effigy in mock lynchings, call him the "ni**er in the white house" and called his wife an "ape in heels".

    What happened to Janet just goes to show how the world views/treats women. I know everyone isn't the same.

    Kathy Griffin should’ve just owned it, the public would’ve went easier on her

    Look I think Trump is a bastard but what Kathy did was…. disturbing almost psychotic especially with that look on her face as she's holding the head. That doesn't look like a joke.

    I love all the dumb broads in the comments section that don't understand Janet Jackson was the one behind the tit coming out.

    Justin and Janet wasn’t for publicity. Especially since Janet got the unequal treatment

    Why is it when men aren’t being accused of only wanting to see women’s breasts they are being accused of doing everything they can to keep them covered up?

    Janet should join the #metoo movement.  Just got to accidently violate and humiliate her in public and she deals mostly with the suffering.  Talk about blatant inequality b/c she is black and a woman.

    So Justin does the deed and Janet gets punished for it. That is perfectly fair (End Sarcasm)

    Let's be honest about Janet Jackson….. her career by that time was already on the ropes. Her career was already down on one knee Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake's career was going pretty strong at the time. Unlike other Nicki Swift uploads, this one wasn't bad, but like almost all Nicki Swift uploads there is some degree of misinformation within the content.

    Y’all forgot Tom Hiddleston when he “dated” Taylor Swift. Lost his chance at being the next bond

    I knew that wasn't Screech's peepee in that video. The camera was always framing his POV but never a full frontal view of him.

    The moral of Kathy's story: Threats of violence are not okay when they're against the president but they're okay when they're against anyone else, and it only counts as hypocrisy if said by a liberal.
