Celebrities are rude to coworkers, writers, and employees

Some of these moments make me so uncomfortable…

Recently, Millie Bobby Brown made headlines after somehow dissing the writers stranger things. She said, “[The cast] is way too big. Last night we couldn’t even take a group photo because we were about 50. I thought you had to start killing people. The Duffer brothers are two sensitive Sallies who don’t want to kill anyone. We must be game of Thrones. We must have the mindset Game of Thrones.

The authors responded, claiming they were “not game of Thrones.” Well, the whole interaction got me thinking about how celebs have been rude and snarky to people behind the scenes — from staff to crew to writers to cameramen and more.
