19 Performances So Awful That The Artist Actually Apologized

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Every performer has unfortunate moments. Actors bungle their lines, singers hit the wrong note, and so on. But sometimes those moments are so tone-deaf (sometimes literally) that an artist winds up issuing a formal apology.

Shout out to rs1, for unapologetically coming up with this contest.
