Second-Hand Embarrassment You've Suffered for Somebody Famous
Mine was when Sarah Michelle Gellar Tweeted these condolences after George Michael died: "Do you really want to hurt me? I guess you do 2016- #ripboygeorge I was truly one of your biggest fans."
I happen to know that she is very, very full of herself, so this had to be extra humiliating. I still cringe for her when I think of it.

It wasn't the wrong music track, it was the wrong VOCAL track, thus proving that she was freaking lip-syncing! And then Jude Law tried to cover it up at the show close and Ashlee made it worse, lol.
What's really hilarious is that when it happened, her guitarist started laughing and had to turn away from the cameras. (He wasn't laughing at her jig, he was laughing cuz the jig was up!)

I get what you're saying, but I disagree. There aren't that many embarrassing moments for most celebrities, and those mentioned in this thread are mostly embarrassing because the famous person was so glib or arrogant. Not everyone is arrogant, and therefore even if any of us say something dumb, it isn't that embarrassing because, without arrogance, it's just considered a mistake and easily forgotten.

I was embarrassed for Ben Affleck when he was photographed with that enormous back tattoo of a phoenix.
Then Jen Garner went to Vanity Fair and said "bless his heart" about it.
Then Ben did a promo tour and said that the tattoo was "fake for a movie," making Garner look stupid in the process.
Both looked incredibly foolish for all of that.
|by Anonymous||reply 160||12/23/2017|
R160 According to some reports, the tattoo is actually real and Ben lied to save face after both Jennifers (Lopez and Garner) roasted him for it. He said it was for a role, but apparently it doesn't appear at all in the movie he was shooting at the time. It makes sense that it would be real, think about it (drugs/alcohol + pending divorce + midlife crisis = shitty full size "inspirational" tat).
If it turns out to be real, then that's going to be a serious cringe moment for Ben. Odd thing to try to deny, but everyone knows he's a notorious mess.

I cringed for poor Katie Holmes when Tom Cruise was courting her and then they were married, and it was obvious he was using her as a prop to convince everyone he was heterosexual.
The couch-jumping on Oprah is what everyone remembers, but the most humiliating moment for Holmes was actually when Cruise produced the ultrasound images of the fetus to prove she was really pregnant.
I felt no embarrassment for him, because he did all this to himself because of his insane ego. But I think she didn't know what she had bargained for when she accepted his proposal, and her life thereafter was a total humiliation until she left him.

When Barbra Streisand "quoted Shakespeare" during a 2002 Democratic fundraising event to introduce her performance of Irving Berlin's God Bless America.. But the quote wasn't from Shakespeare, but an internet hoax. And I can imagine Barbra saying it as if she had long known the quote by heart:
"You know, really good artists have a way of being relevant in their time… but great artists are relevant at anytime. So, in the words William Shakespeare,
'Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind…And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.'
Imagine that was written over 400 years ago… It's amazing how history without consciousness is destined to repeat itself. So…from the words of William Shakespeare to the words of Irving Berlin…"

I remember being in line at the Apple Store behind Joyce Bulifant. At one point she turned to me and asked me to hold her purse while she went to the restroom. Okay, odd, I thought. Well, as you can imagine, she was gone for a long 20 minutes. During which time a stench was emanating from said purse. Plus, the fact that it was at least 90 degrees did not help. The smell became nauseating and created much embarrassment for me, as everyone was throwing me daggers! Reluctantly I slowly opened the purse Joyce had handed me as it seemed the odor came from within. Indeed I had been punked into holding this shit-bag. The legend of la Bulifant's shit purse had claimed me as her latest victim. I threw it away immediately and hung my head low as I left the line. Sadly the iPhone 3 was not to be mine that day.

I was just driving and suffered second-hand embarrassment for Oprah. A radio station was playing an interview she had with Ellen, I guess today, and Oprah was walking around looking at the devastation of the mudslides in her Montecito neighborhood. Mind you, 17 people are now confirmed dead and many more are still missing. Oprah was upbeat and excited, and she introduced some firemen she saw along the way as she was checking out her property damage. She told Ellen, "I said to them, 'Can you BELIEVE IT !!! I'm about to be interviewed by Ellen !!!" And she laughed and laughed. These men were part of a search and rescue crew that was searching for bodies among the mud and debris. And there's Oprah being Oprah, all hyper and self-centered. I felt angry, but I also cringed in disbelief. I felt embarrassed for Oprah because it seemed like she just didn't get it, but was animated and excited to be back on television, this time with [italics]Ellen's[/italics] hyperactive studio audience. At least Ellen tried to draw the conversation back to the very serious subject of lives lost and homes destroyed..

I have second-hand embarrassment in advance for Jimmy Kimmel on Oscar night as I anticipate him crying (again). Hopefully he can hold it together, but he's really getting used to shedding those tears publicly, so who knows?

I'm embarrassed for Mira Sorvino, a perfectly fine looking woman who, for reasons known only to herself, paid a doctor to make her unidentifiable... even requesting that, if possible, he make her look as much like Melissa Gilbert after her own plastic surgery. And the doctor pulled it off!
Are actresses certifiably insane?

As a young child, I suffered second-hand embarrassment whenever my parents watched Bloopers and Ed McMahon and Dick Clark would throw their heads back in fake laughter after each (usually dumb) clip. OMG, they were both such dorks. And the canned laughter from the audience made me continue to cringe.
I also remember feeling embarrassed for Dick Clark when he hosted the $25,000 Pyramid. He was so awkward when talking to the guest stars and contestants. He seemed so dumb.
I don't think this is embarrassment exactly, but I always felt kind of bad for Ed McMahon when he was around Johnny Carson all those years. He was very nice to Johnny and did his job well, but there was always a tension coming from Johnny, like a thinly veiled contempt toward Ed. As a kid, I just wished Johnny would be nice and stop.

The PeeWee Herman thing happened when I was in high school and I remember feeling super embarrassed for him, but the whole thing also pissed me off and still does.
I get why George Michael types are arrested. Parks and toilets are public places and using them to hook up for sex is wrong because unwitting strangers or children could stumble in and catch you at it. But porn theaters?
Porn theaters are private and you have to be 18 just to get into one. Also--it is a freakin' porn theater. I would be more creeped out by the guys NOT masturbating.
Did police really not have anything better to do than conduct sting operations on adults whacking it in porn theaters?

Here goes. Sometime in 1995 when I first moved to NYC I went to a computer store just off on B-way north of Astor Place. I could see the clerk inside talking to an older guy saddled up to the counter. I couldn't figure if the door was Push or Pull and they laughed at me as I came in! After the guy left I asked the clerk, ok, who was that? "That, was F. Murray Abraham". Who???!?? I'm honestly not that sensitive, whatever, but even in that brief moment he seemed like kind of a prick.

Lisa Rinna interviewing Amy Adams on the red carpet at the 2008 Oscars was a real cringefest. Rinna mistakenly thought Adams was nominated that year for Enchanted and asked her what it feels like being nominated for the first time. Adams realized she was talking to an idiot and tried to help her out by casually mentioning that she was nominated a year before that for Junebug in her answer. Rinna then said something like: "Oh, this is so embarassing - so this is your SECOND nomination?!" Adams' publicist was seen cringing in the background.
