Celebrities behaving badly
Sometimes it's not their fault. They're only human. Some stars have had anger-management problems; others have had addictions or other issues. And some were just jerks.
See the most regrettable moments from celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and more.
Video and photos of comedian Kathy Griffin holding up a prop depicting President Trump's bloodied, severed head circulated on Instagram on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. Though she removed the images later that day and issued an apology via Instagram video, the project Griffin originally called an "artsy fartsy statement" with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields sparked backlash across political lines and from Trump himself, who tweeted, in part, "Griffin should be ashamed of herself. .... Sick!" The following day, CNN fired Griffin from its New Year's Eve program, a New Mexico casino canceled her upcoming performance, and the Squatty Potty company drop her endorsement deal.
Billy Bush and Donald Trump

NBC, which owns both shows as well as Trump's "The Apprentice," cut ties with Bush soon after. This photo was taken in 2015.

I'm sorry Beck."

Shia LaBeouf has recently become known for his erratic behavior. In November 2015, Refinery29 reported that LaBeouf opened up about his series of arrests, dating back to age 9 when he stole a pair of shoes. At the time, his most recent arrest was in October 2015, when he was charged for being publicly intoxicated. In June 2014, LaBeouf was arrested twice, once for disorderly conduct after interrupting a performance of "Cabaret" and then confronting and chasing a homeless man in New York City.

The former child actress suffered a string of issues between 2012 and 2013. According to People.com, Byne faced DUI and hit-and-run charges in 2012. In 2013, suffering from unspecified mental-health issues, Bynes was placed under psychiatric hold in California in July 2013 after setting a small fire and behaving bizarrely in a stranger's driveway. Her mother was granted conservatorship soon afterward, and her lawyer in a DUI case said in September 2013 that she was unfit to stand trial. Bynes went on to complete inpatient treatment at a rehab facility.
In August 2013, the Amityville-born, Massapequa-raised Alec Baldwin scuffled with a photographer in Greenwich Village, pinning the man's arms back and pushing him against a car. Later that year, in November, after three more separate, heated paparazzi confrontations in just two days, Baldwin publicly apologized for using an anti-gay slur during one outburst. MSNBC suspended his recently begun talk show for two weeks, followed by the actor and the network announcing "a mutual parting."
The singer and former Disney Channel star had a string of bad behavior. In August 2013, she stripped to a skin-tone bra and panties, twerking against singer Robin Thicke and toyed with a large foam finger onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards -- and seemingly became the most talked-about person on the planet. After then appearing nude in the music video for "Wrecking Ball," an homage to Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" video, she made fun of O'Connor's acknowledged mental-health issues on Twitter, comparing O'Connor to the recently-hospitalized Amanda Bynes. Later that year, in November, in Amsterdam, at MTV's European Music Awards, she fired up an apparent marijuana joint on live TV.
In 2013 August, singer Chris Brown had another 1,000 hours tacked to his community service for a 2009 assault conviction, with the judge saying Brown fudged documentation on the 1,400 hours he was supposed to have completed. Two months later, Brown and another man were arrested in Washington, D.C., after a 4:30 a.m. fight with a third. The singer quickly entered a rehab facility to address anger issues. He was subsequently kicked out of rehab, his probation officer says, on Nov. 20, 2013, after smashing his mother's car window during a family session.
Singer Justin Bieber had taken part in a string of bad behavior since 2013. He mooned fans on a quickly deleted Instagram photo on Jan. 19, 2013. In March, 2013, a video caught him nearly getting into a fight with a London photographer, screaming at the man, "I'll [expletive] beat the [expletive] out of you!" That same month, Bieber was thrown out of a Vienna nightclub after his bodyguards allegedly smashed patrons' cameras and cellphones and groped female fans. Soon after, The L.A. County Sheriff's Department investigated a battery complaint lodged against him by a neighbor who objected to Bieber's reckless driving on residential streets and reportedly was spit on by the teen. In July 2013, Bieber publicly apologized to Bill Clinton after he's caught on video cursing out a photo of the former president. According to CNN.com, Bieber was later photographed wandering around on Boston barefoot on May 9, 2016.
