From the worst to the weirdest to the wackiest, here are 24 celebrity encounters that did not go as planned.
“I was a little kid in the 70s. Like pretty much every little boy, I thought Evel Knievel was really cool. When I was about 7, I was in the airport with my mom and her boyfriend and a friend of mine. My mother’s boyfriend told us that Evel was in one of the lounges.
We both approached him excitedly and asked for his autograph. He was obviously drunk, but he picked up a couple of cocktail napkins and scratched out his signature on both of them. Then he looked at us and said, “Before I give you these, I’m going to teach you something.” My friend at I looked at each other, totally starstruck and grinning like idiots.
Evel proceeded to tap both of us on the arm. “Does that hurt?” he asked. We both shook our heads and said no. Then he poked us lightly in the chest, “does that hurt?” Again we both said no in unison. Then he made fists out of both hands with the middle knuckle sticking out and brought them down sharply and simultaneously, protruding knuckle first, onto both of our heads. “Does that hurt?” he asked. Neither of us could really answer, I was holding back tears from the pain. He waited a few seconds and said: “That’s why you wear a safety helmet,” and handed us the napkins.” (msjtx)
