It's brilliant for celebrities to engage with fans in the virtual world, but they probably sometimes regret it when their comments and/or photos come back to bite them. When things are printed — even virtually — they can be referenced and double checked. And even if a celebrity deletes something, there are likely already thousands of retweets and screen caps so the awkward message will live on. In a lot of cases, trying to justify the situation doesn't help. Have a look at 19 celebrities caught lying on social media.

This Teen Mom 2 was caught lying on social media when she posted a side-by-side photo alleging that the product she was sponsoring had helped her lose weight and tone up. But as her followers noticed, she really just took off her hair, changed her hair, took off her glasses, and pulled up her leggings a bit. The clutter in the background being identical tipped her "fans" off.
