People have been losing their minds for all of history, but it wasn't until the dawn of social media that people's breakdowns could be easily broadcast to all the world in real time. As luck would have it, a whole lot of those public displays of insanity have come from celebrities. Apparently, when you're rich and famous, you run out of real things to get mad about and start going ballistic over ridiculous things.
6 Smash Mouth Is Really Mad At Shrek

Shrek was a very solid all-around children's film which managed to bring in a ton of top-name talent, such as Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy, to elevate the story. You'd think that Smash Mouth would be honored to be one of the first things that people associate with Shrek, but if you were to tweet that opinion, the band would find you and yell at you. They've been scouring Twitter for over a year looking for people who don't seem to remember that they had written songs other than "All Star," or that "All Star" originally appeared on the soundtrack for a completely different movie.
"You ain't the sharpest tool in the shed."
It's like they think Shrek hindered their name recognition or something. Nobody has held this kind of a grudge on something that did them good since ... man, it's hard to think of examples of being mad at something that brought you money and fame.
"You're looking kind of dumb with your finger and your thumb in the shape of an 'L' on your forehead."
And look at the dates on those responses. It's like they've got an intern whose job is to find tweets about Shrek and alert them so that they can formulate replies. Or worse, they're doing it themselves.
"I need to get myself away from this place."
You can practically feel Steve Harwell banging his fists on his desk, crying into the keyboard and shouting, "Two Number Ones! Two Number Ones!" This entire campaign of musical self-defense hits the same two talking points over and over: that they had half a dozen hit songs, and that they were all-stars before the movie came out. Six hit songs for a 20-year career is a lot, you guys.
5 Jose Canseco Mistook Twitter For Craigslist

Once upon a time, giant leather handbag and occasional trivia question Jose Canseco was a famous baseball player. He's in Sega games and everything. However, he has never been skilled at speaking, so it was to the chagrin of people everywhere that he figured out how to bemoan his failed relationship on Twitter.
"Yes, I've been hit in the head with a ball. Why do you ask?"
Leila and Jose dated on and off from 2011 to 2014, when it seems things got so bad that Canseco turned to internet dating. No, he didn't make a Tinder account like a normal person. He shouted into Twitter to see if any of his followers felt like getting married that instant
A whopping six minutes later, Canseco remembered that he had almost met Shania Twain one time, and, in baseball terms, decided to "swing for the fences."
"M4F You, a Canadian country/rock crossover artist. Me, a stark raving lunatic."
Canseco continued his cyber Cinderella search for days, eventually becoming so desperate that he started offering green cards to anyone looking for a way into the United States, which many of you might also know recognize as "a crime." Oh, and he apologized for that Shania Twain tweet, three days later.
"I'm kidding ... unless you want to?"
Leila eventually took Canseco back, giving him the wife he'd always wanted. If you're kicking yourself for missing that golden opportunity to marry a former baseball star in the death throes of his fame, just keep an eye on Jose's Twitter feed. We're sure he'll be looking for another literal partner in crime eventually.
