Chrissy Teigen faced backlash after tweeting about accidentally ordering a $13,000 bottle of wine at dinner, a struggle which few could relate to.

Flaunting your wealth during a pandemic that has left many unemployed is probably not a great idea, but hey, at least that server hopefully got a great tip.

2.

Sia apologized for her problematic depiction of an autistic girl (which included the use of restraints against the character) in her new film, then deleted her Twitter account.

Olivia Newton-John called accusations that Grease is problematic “silly,” and said that the film shouldn’t be taken so seriously.

Look, I hear Olivia and what she’s saying about a film being a product of its time. But the musical has problematic aspects, and it’s okay to acknowledge that and still enjoy the film, rather than completely pushing them under the rug. Let’s also not forget that Grease Live! refused to cut the line about a girl “putting up a fight,” so clearly it’s got a damaging message that’s lived on.

Kylie did cancel plans for a larger party, but it seems there were still at least 20 people in attendance, and much of the party was inside.

6.

Michael Che found himself in hot water after a transphobic joke on SNL this week.

Was this really necessary?

8.

Also on SNL: John Krasinski hosted and kissed Pete Davidson in his monologue. A lot of people enjoyed it, but many others felt it was a cheap ploy at humor.

Straight men kissing isn’t funny, people!

9.

Justin Timberlake confused some people after he called himself an ally to the LGBTQ community.

I’m glad Justin supports LGBTQ rights! But could he do more to really live up to the name of ally? Absolutely!

10.

Fans were a little unhappy with Dixie D’Amelio after she talked about not going to college based on her fear they would play her songs at frat parties.

Dixie saying ""I was also really scared because I saw someone make a TikTok, saying that they would play my songs at a frat party. That's really what like turned me away from going to school"

I get this to a certain degree, but I wish Dixie had a little more regard for what a privilege it is to be able to go to college and how many people don’t have that option.

11.

Country singer Morgan Wallen was caught using the N-word and it was just completely unacceptable.

And now his sales have skyrocketed, because that’s the society we live in. Please don’t support this man.

14.

Applebaum stated that she wasn’t involved in casting decisions and hopes people like how she’s portrayed Musa. Other actors from the series, including Precious Mustapha and Eliot Sal, talked about the whitewashing as well, saying they hoped there’d be more diversity (and that the Latinx character Flora would be included) in Season 2.

Khloe Kardashian also faced backlash for a tweet, in which she used emojis with a darker skin tone than her own.

Though some claimed she probably chose the emoji for its hair color. IDK, guys.

16.

The Hilaria Baldwin drama continued, with Salma Hayek defending her, saying, “We all lie a little bit. She makes my friend happy,” and Hilaria herself posting an apology on Instagram.

17.

She previously called COVID “God’s way of thinning the herd.”

18.

And finally, in a lighter fail, Gwen Stefani did a pretty bad job of lip-syncing her own song on TikTok – she seemed to take those commenting that she was failing at TikTok in stride, thanking a user for calling her out and saying they were right.
