People Are Tweeting The Awkward, Embarrassing Moments They Shared With Celebrities

If you’ve ever encountered a celebrity in the wild you know how strange it can be.

There’s a shared anxiety in any room containing a famous person and many non-famous people as everyone either peeks, pretends they’re not peeking, or else shamelessly sucks up to the individual, either out of some vague instinct that it will benefit them or simply to bask in their glow.

Navigating these interactions is a social and emotional minefield for the famous and non-famous alike and embarrassing celebrity moments turn out to be pretty common.

When Twitter user @yusufyuie asked people to share their most awkward or interesting celebrity encounters the responses did not disappoint.
