This is a question Have you ever been rude to a celebrity?

Whilst at school we had a field trip to the Ironbridge Gorge museum. Oddly enough kids TV presenter Johnny Ball happened to pick the same day to make a visit. We were rather excited and crowded round asking questions. Johnny took this rather well and held an impromptu lecture. This was all fun and games until a kid at the back threw a small rock at his head. Silence fell for a moment then Mr Ball blew a gasket and did the whole "no one is leaving until I get a confession" routine. Er.. typing this out makes me feel rather sorry for the chap. Anyway - can you beat that?

Richard Bacon - Crack
The Big Breakfast held a christmas party live on TV in our office early one morning in December 1999. We had no choice but to keep dropping the word "Crack" around Richard Bacon at every opportunity. It wasn't helped by the fact the crew kept plying us with champagne and onion bhaji's (let me remind you we were live and it was 8 in the morning!). I can be clearly heard on more than one occassion asking Richard for "Crack"ers and asking him if he's enjoying the "Craic". Credit where credits due he was a really nice bloke, if not a little annoyed by a bunch of drunken insurance brokers blowing party horns down his ears every 5 minutes. Bless.

once shouted "Cuntbone" at Simon Mayo.

It wasn't big. It wasn't clever. But it was so damn right.

I once stopped Horatio Sanz of Saturday Nite Live
...on his way out of a porn theatre in Germany. He didn't realize that I knew where he was coming from, and when I asked if I could get him on tape, he gladly obliged. And it went something like this.

Me: "Hi Horatio, I'm a big fan of SNL."

Horatio: "Hi there, thanks."

Me: "So I'm here with Horatio Sanz. Tell me Horatio, what are you doing here at the "Wicksen Palast" (Masturbation Palace)?

I've never seen a fat man run faster.

It's not that great
But about 2 years ago I was on a train from Manchester to London to see my then girlfriend. The train broke down and we had to change at Rugby but instead of having a new train we had to jump on an already full one. I ended up sitting in first class next to bald 'Landlord' Al Murray. We had a chat and as I was a bit stoned had no worries about being honest. When we got onto the subject of his sit com thing that was on Sky One at the time, he seemed quite annoyed when I told him it was "a bit shit".

Not so much rude but
childish heckling..While at University in High Wycombe, the Chuckle Brothers where filming something in the highstreet, slightly boozed up we began just shouting.."TO ME TO YOU TO ME TO YOU"( disrupting the filming in the process which in itself would have pissed me and My Mates of if we were filming as we were Video Production students)..but they were quite rude to us telling us to PISS OFF...later that week we also saw Michael Elphick in the local McD's..we proceeded to just hum the BOON theme tune at him for a while being again..promptly told to Fuck off!!!..Those were the days

Charlie Dimmock.
There was a grand re-opening ceremony of a garden centre here in Shrewsbury a couple of years back (Dobbies in Meole Brace for anyone who knows the area).

One of my Dad's mates from the pub leases out bouncy castles for events such as this, and I had the cracking job of minding the bouncy castle over the weekend. £150 for two days work, and all it involved was making sure no kids got on with shoes. Marvellous.

Anyway, halfway through the first day, Charlie Dimmock came over and started chatting on the behalf of the media. Photographers flashing everywhere etc. She asked me what my name was, so I dutifully replied with "Gaz. And you are?".

The look on her face was priceless. Absolutely priceless. To her credit, she didn't storm off, but she didn't look happy!

It would've been a good opportunity....
I haven't even met a whole lot of celebrities to be rude to, so my answer is no. But I would have had a chance to be really awful to one if I had the resources (like a car and a sense of direction).
Anyway, Avril Lavigne (yes, that snotty pop star with the spike bracelets), was doing a show at a local mall. I thought it wold be fun to show up and throw an Orange Julius at her or something. But I couldn't go, so unfortunatly that twunt is running around ruining the music industry, Orange Julius free.

Well not that famous...
...but 2 modern composers have insulted me, Stockhausen told me to get lost and Maxwell Davis told me I was being very annoying. Seeing as I am a music student, I think I am doing well.

Joe Absolom - Formerly Eastenders and now does various other stuff
He bumped (literally) into me in Greenwich Village Market (London - Not NY) and I said something along the lines of "watch it, you dumb cunt!" to which my then g/f who recognised him apoligised on my behalf. I said "No he was the one not looking" he did apologise and bought us lunch.

Nice guy.
Shit actor tho!

speaking of Johnny Ball...
I won tickets to the CBBC Big Bash when I was little. I got lots of signatures, and I wrote the names of the people under each signature because most of them were illegible. Under Johnny Ball's signature, I wrote "Johnny Ball (Zoe's Dad)", while he watched.

I said
"There's that twat off the telly." or something to that effect, to my pal as we walked past Darius in Edinburgh. This was shortly after his Britney performance. I felt a bit guilty afterwards though, even if he did bring it upon himself. Either way, being a twat on the telly seems to have worked out nicely. I'm sure he's sipping cocktails in Acapulco while I'm still stuck here. Twat.

Dear Jeebus
where to begin? My second job affords me the opportunity to see/insult and otherwise hobknob with Celebrities all of the time.

This week it was Cindy Crawford, week before, Heather Locklear, and I cannot TELL you how many times I've seen Marie Osmond.

Have I ever insulted any? Well, Marilu Henner seemed put off when I asked who she was for the grand opening of a new play a couple of months ago. Nice kids though.

Very funny for me because a) i lost my job and b) i didnt like it anyways
Insulting a celebrity the best way in the world to lose a job.

First: Lowri Turner of that home improvement show cant rember the name now, visits the local Safeway where i just so happened to work at the time. Guess what she cam through my checkout and I was having a nice conversation with her about my job and then i asked her what she did (at the time not realising it was her) she told me that she worked for BBC on said improvement show. and i replied with "oh that very classy show with the downtrodden masses looking for a freebie with that fat bird who presents it whats her name?" to which she said "me" what kind of a stupid name is that and she said "no im the fat bird who presents it" and stormed off.

Take That came to our school just before they got famous
this being a school in the heart of the largest council estate in Europe (Bransholme), they were repeatedly spat on in the 'theatre' and their tour bus got it's tires slashed. I was one of the spitees.
Needless to say, they were disgusted and vowed never to return to Hull, and you know what? They never did!

(much to the dissapointment of the girls, creating a huge girls/boys rift throughout my term at Bransholme Jail Winifred Holtby School.)

It wasn't me, it was actually my brother.
One year he was doing volunteer work at the international flower show being held in our home town, performing grunt work like planting flowers, painting fences, etc. That year there was a special guest: None other than Martha Stewart.

"No no no, plant it here. So it's neat. Yours looks terrible." She said to him, to which he responded:

"Excuse me lady, I think you've mistaken me for someone who gives a damn."

I met Bill Oddie one time.
I thought it amusing to tell him that he and Noddy Holder got married he could be Willy Holder and Noddy would be Noddy Oddie. I don't think he found it amusing. You'd have thought he would really... being a Goodie and all.

Tragic rudeness
Myself and some mates used to be in the same pool team as two (unnamed) Chelsea players who got us tickets for the PFA dinner one year.

My mates decided to "prank" Justin Fashanu and spent the whole night taking it in turns to approach him for an autograph and then (comedically) realising he wasn't John Fashanu, asking if he knew where his brother was and declining the autograph.

It was pretty funny, in a childish way, but within a few weeks Justin killed himself.


You decide....

Some bint from Hollyoaks
Was at a club and saw some blonde bit from Hollyoaks. I have no idea who she was but apparantely she was a bit rude to people.
Anyway it was Christmas time, I was very drunk indeed and I got some measuring spoons in my cracker, so I became very threatening with them shouting menacingly "Spoons! SPOOOONS!! YOU CAN'T HAVE MY SPOOOOONS!!!" I think I scared her. I enjoyed that night.
Wish I could remember who she was though. They all look the same.

well he seemed to thinkit was rude
long time ago in Belfast I played in a punk band, one weekend a showcase gig was organised in the hope of getting local bands signed, it was a long day and much drink was taken,
anyhow I ended up doing the door for a while and this little baldy guy with a beard appeared, "£1.50 mate" says I, he just shrugged and tried to enter so I ask him again "£1.50 or you're not getting in" so he replies " I'm John Peel from radio one"
guess who didn't get a record deal that night?

Robert Fripp
I asked him why we don't hear his (or King Crimson's) music on any movie soundtrack. He wasn't offended, he thinks everyone in Hollywood wears brown lipstick and lives on cocaine...

I met a bunch of celebrities at a charity do
and told the short dude from Top Gear about the Cunt Trumps game, telling him that Jamie Oliver (who was also at the event) was one of the cards!

Also, I called Jeremy Paxman "Pacman" (yeah, really clever, I know... he did call me a cheeky bugger, so I've been insulted BY a celebrity!), and said to Brian Conley that I loved him in the film "Mrs Brown"

Oh yeah, and I met Neil Morrisey and he was completely ratted, I was there with a few other friends in wheelchairs, and he asked us for a lift. He also made a gag about pushing me down a ramp, to which I replied that I would push him down the stairs first, which shut him up.
