The worst web scandal videos of all time
After the advent of proliferation of online websites, interactive social networks like Facebook and Sulekha along with YouTube, lot of videos are posted by bloggers which involve celebrities caught on the wrong foot.
Sometimes the high profile elite who strive to be so correct in public view, are sshown their filthy inner personalities.
Here are some of the incidents inadvertently or otherwise posted on the web:
A video that attracted millions of clicks on the web was that of pop singer Britney Spears being wheeled out of her home on a stretcher by paramedics.
In 2008, Britney had been wheeled out of her Beverly Hills mansion and taken to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on a “medical hold” after police found her under the influence of an “unknown substance”.
The video showed her surrounded by six police cars and a fire engine.
Spears was suffering due to “mental stress and anguish” over the custody battle for her two children with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Paris Hilton and her ex-boyfriend Rick Solomon’s private home video appeared on the web in 2004. In the video, Paris Hilton is shown engaging in sexual relations with her ex-boy friend Rick.
Red Light District Video said that it acquired the rights from Hilton’s ex-boyfriend Rick to distribute the full 45-minute video under the title “One Night In Paris.”
Later, Hilton is reported to have sued her ex-lover Rick for releasing the tape and demanded $400,000.
Prince Harry of England landed himself in needless racial controversy when he was caught on video calling an Asian army personnel ‘our little Paki friend’.
The prince, who is third in line to the British throne, made the comments in footage shot while training as an officer at the Sandhurst military academy in 2006.
Earlier, the prince was caught on camera wearing a Nazi swastika at a fancy dress party and had to make a public apology.
English singer and songwriter, Amy Winehouse faced ruin after being caught on video reveling in sex in a public place, and singing a racist chant.
The scenes were filmed by the troubled singing star’s husband Blake Fielder-Civil. Amy asks Blake to perform a sex act on her in the public stairwell of a hotel. The act has been filmed by Blake himself.
In a sequence shot around May 2007, Blake and Amy are in a dingy den and they sing a string of racist lines set to the tune of kiddies’ favourite ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’, replacing the words with ‘Blacks, pakis, gooks and nips’ followed by ‘And deaf and dumb and blind and gay’.
Most celebrities may not and do not carry their instant fame on responsible shoulders. In stead of being role models, they become psycho-wrecks sending wrong signals to the public and also to those aspiring for a spot in the lime light.
