There's a price to pay for being famous. Celebrities and famous people alike are exposed to both die-hard fans and haters, and both can be problematic.
If on the one hand, stars have adoring fans, these are also the same people who have high expectations about their idols, so they will duly criticize any behavior they deem inappropriate. Being late for a show, for example, caused Rihanna to get showered with chips by angry fans.
On the other hand, there are people who will always dislike a celebrity, their work, and anything they do, and some like to express it in odd ways. When was the last time you threw a shoe at someone you disliked? Well, many famous people have actually had that experience.
When booing someone or cheering them is not enough, there are always other ways to demonstrate your feelings towards a celeb—throwing objects at them. Perhaps water bottles or eggs come to mind, but if you think you’ve seen it all, think again. From sharks to pigs' heads, these stars have had all sorts of bizarre things thrown at them.
Browse through the gallery and see what your favorite star has had thrown at them.
