Celebrities might seem perfect, but they’re not flawless. In fact, they’re capable of lying just the rest of us. But sadly, most of them aren’t very good at it. It's like they seem to forget that what you do on social media, stays on social media...forever.

Rita Ora’s Halloween Deception
Back in October 2014, Rita Ora wrote on social media that she would release a new track if she got 100,000 retweets. Clever, right? Only problem is, her promo got a measly 2,000 retweets.

Jennelle Evans Promotional Deception
“Teen Mom” star Jennelle Evans posted a side-by-side picture for Flat Tummy Tea to show her progress. But netizens believe both photos were taken the same day. Eagle-eyed fans claim Evans was just pushing her stomach out for the before picture and then she tucked it in for the after shot. Others believe she Photoshopped herself to promote the tea.
