Celebrities are constantly in the public eye, which means almost everyone has an opinion about what they’re acting in or what they’re singing, what they’re wearing, or something they said. While many stars have learned to handle any negative attention they receive, some celebrities haven’t figured out how to handle the critics. Check out the list below to see which 8 celebs cannot handle criticism!

Rapper Mac Miller admitted last month that he turned to drugs to deal with criticism surrounding his 2011 debut album Blue Slide Park. Despite the album’s success, the rapper was disappointed that critics were focusing more on him as a person rather than the music he released. He was labeled by many as a “frat rapper” and began using promethazine while on tour, but he managed to beat his addiction last year.
Samuel L. Jackson
When a writer from the The New York Times wrote a less than stellar review of Samuel L. Jackson’s 2012 film The Avengers, the actor took to Twitter to let his followers know how he felt about the criticism. He wrote that the critic “needs a new job,” and “one he can ACTUALLY do!”
Nicki Minaj didn’t take kindly to Steven Tyler’s criticism of her place on the American Idol judging panel. When asked last year what he thought of the new judges, Tyler criticized them for fighting and for not bringing out the best in the contestants. Of the auditions, he stated, “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!” Minaj immediately took to Twitter to call Tyler out for making a “racist comment.” She obviously can’t handle anything other than positive reviews!
Robert Pattinson admitted in 2011 that he decided to focus on his acting career rather than building up his music career because he wouldn’t be able to handle any criticism of his music. He believes he can blame someone else if one of his films is bad, but if he put any of his music out there, he would be “on the net looking at what people are saying” and will “probably shoot myself” if people were to judge him harshly.
Lindsay Lohan has made such a mess of her life lately that it’s hard to find anyone saying positive things about her, but she took negative reviews of her 2012 Lifetime movie Liz & Dick particularly hard. She was reportedly devastated by the harsh critiques and began questioning her ability to act, which she previously thought “was the only thing in her life that she knew was real.”
Chris Brown claims he doesn’t care about people who criticize him, but his Twitter account proves otherwise. He has gotten into arguments over Twitter with many people over the past few years. One of his most recent fights caused him to delete his Twitter account temporarily. In November 2012, he exchanged nasty tweets with comedy writer Jenny Johnson after she told Brown that he looked old because being worthless aged him.
In 2011, James Franco was not a happy camper after a writer for the Yale Daily News declared that the actor was not good at Tweeting. The student wrote, “James Franco, your Twitter sort of sucks” and explained the statement with a short article. Franco retaliated by Tweeting a picture of himself with “F— the Yale Daily News” scribbled over the image using a basic paintbrush program.
Kylie Minogue admitted in 2010 that she’s not good at dealing with criticism. The singer values what her fans have to say and will keep making music as long as they want her to, but she doesn’t like reading negative critiques in the press. She stated, “it cuts like a knife if I read a bad review.”
