No Take-Backs: Cringeworthy Tweets We Haven’t Forgotten
In the world of social media, celebrities have a tendency to post things, regret them, and subsequently delete them. We’ve seen it happen on Instagram and Facebook quite often, but no social media platform has seen more deleted content than Twitter has. And unfortunately for celebs, although tweets can be deleted, they can’t necessarily be forgotten.

Rihanna has become notorious for her comeback tweets to fans, followers and even other celebrities.
