When things got heated, these outspoken celebrities asked “hold my tongue for what?” Do you agree with these bold statements? Or should some of these stars have kept their comments to themselves?

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg recently joined the ranks of everyone who has accidentally gone HAM at work when she blew up at ABC executives, liberally used the n-word and accused them of treating her like a slave.

But Whoopi says she refuses to call it a “meltdown.” Someone at work was stepping on her toes, and she simply refused to stand for it.

David Banner

The n-word is always a touchy subject. But rapper David Banner took the bull by the horns when he made this Instagram manifesto saying that no white or half white rappers should be able to use the word.

Do you agree?

Bobby Brown’s Lawyer

Bobby Brown’s lawyer held zero punches when he proclaimed, “we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina and his name is Nick Gordon” in a recent statement. We’re not sure what happened to “innocent until proven guilty,” but do you believe these allegations are true?

Wendy Williams

Wendy Williams is no stranger to bold statements, including the one where she accused Kim Zolciak of faking her stroke to win Dancing with the Stars

Matt Damon

Matt Damon took acting advice to another level when he suggested that gay actors should stay in the closet. Now Matt is saying that his words were taken out of context, but some people think that’s one mistake too many.


It looks like Drake isn’t done dissing Meek Mill quite yet. When fans at his concert began chanting “F–k Meek Mill!” Drake responded by reassuring the audience, “Don’t worry, he’s dead already.”


Ben Carson

Presidential hopeful Ben Carson made headlines on the campaign trail when he ventured a joke about cops shooting black kids.

What exactly did he say? That he and his friends used to throw rocks and the cops and run, but “that was back in the day before they would shoot you.”

Was that joke right on time? Or out of place on the campaign trail? Listen to the full story here.

Laura Govan

Basketball Wives star Laura Govan isn’t in trouble for speaking her mind. But Gilbert Arenas did just bust her for leaking their e-mail exchanges to a blogger.

Now Arenas is suing Govan for leaking all of the juicy details about infidelity and domestic violence that have been circulating in the tabloids lately.

Momma Dee

The Love and Hip Hop celebrity may have been arrested for skipping out on a check, but she’s not afraid to speak up to clear her story.

While the news reported that Lil’ Scrappy’s mother was arrested for skipping out on a check, Momma Dee says it was her dinner guests that slipped out in the middle of dinner — she just refused to pay for them all!

Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks has never been one to take a slight lying down. But this time she might be in legal trouble for going HAM on a flight attendant (and calling him a f–king f–got). Unfortunately for Banks, it was all caught on video.

Chet Hanks

Remember when Tom Hanks’ son was under fire for dropping the n-word regularly — and refusing to apologize for it?

Well now the famous actors’ son is saying that he’s not normally that offensively opinionated. All of those n-bombs were really just the cocaine talking.

Alrighty then.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj proved that divas have no problem making everything about “moi” when she congratulated Zendaya Coleman on her Barbie win… while highlighting her own. Was this a boss move, or should Nicki do better at sharing the spotlight?

Raven Symone

Some celebrities say it like it is so well that their candid take is always in the headlines. Most recently Ms. Symone made headlines for claiming that Caitlyn Jenner is doing too much for someone who’s just come out:

“When I came out, I didn’t go and go hardcore and be like, ‘I’m going to save the world for LGBT. You’ve got to learn it. You’ve got to learn it first, and she’s not, really.”

Do you agree?

Brandi Glanville

Telling the world your co-star has a smelly vagina is an extremely bold move. But former Real Housewives cast member Brandi Glanville was not afraid to say just that about fellow Housewife Joanna Krupa — to the entire audience of Watch What Happens Live!

And now it looks like those words won’t come back to bite her after all. Krupa’s suit for defamation has been thrown out of court. Not for lack of evidence, but because Housewives aren’t allowed to sue each other.
