13 Celebrities Who Hate (And Maybe Don’t Understand) Social Media

8. Mila Kunis

Even though her boyfriend Ashton Kutcher was one of the first celebrities to use social media, Mila’s not so into it, mostly because she has the same tired idea about it being for announcing your bathroom breaks. She told Craig Ferguson, “I just don’t think people need to know when I’m going to the restroom.”

9. Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe is one of the few young Hollywood stars who’s managed to remain scandal-free and maintain his privacy. He attributes that partly to avoiding social media, “because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you’re doing moment to moment, and then claim you want a private life, no one’s going to take that request seriously.”

10. Tina Fey

Tina is withholding jokes from us by not joining Twitter, everybody! She told Craig Ferguson, “I guess I just feel like if I had any jokes, I would hold them.” Of course, considering how mad Taylor Swift fans are at her right now, it’s probably best she stays away.

11. Brangelina

Beautiful, rich, many-children-having Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are blissfully unaware of how computers even work, let alone how to tweet something. Angelina said in 2011 that she and Brad “got lost” shopping for Christmas gifts on Amazon, adding, “After an hour, we just shut it off.” I need that to be dramatized for me immediately.

12. Megan Fox

Last year Megan Fox joined Twitter for a week but then quit, announcing on her Facebook page (which she says is all she can handle): “I thought that 2013 might be the year that I finally blossomed into a social networking butterfly, but as it turns out, I still hate it.”

13. Jennifer Lawrence

As much as you might wish you could stalk Jennifer via Twitter, it doesn’t look like she’ll be joining very soon. Although she does have a Facebook page to promote things, Jennifer has said that the Internet in general is “confusing” and “overwhelming,” adding, “What’s Pinterest? I don’t have it. I know by the time I get it, it’ll be something else. I bought a CD case less than a year ago.”

    You know in Kristen Stewart’s defense I can see where if you have a stalker social media can be kind of a scary place. But I mean that for all people, not just celebs.

    Daniel Radcliffe is the only one with a reasonable and genuine ‘excuse’..

    Good for them! Seriously I think it’s pretty absurd to decide they “don’t understand” something just because they think it’s ridiculous and don’t want to play or that they need a real reason to opt out. I sincerely wish a lot more people felt the same way they do. I’m not old or computer illiterate, but I think more often then not social media is just a way to spread hate faster and to a bigger audience. Either that or stupid bullshit that absolutely no one should ever care about. Like a Kardashian ass or what snack someone just ate.

    So, if you enjoy social media, that’s terrific! Yay! Have fun! But don’t get uppity about those of use who opt out.

    • Jill O’Rourke

      I think it’s totally fine if they opt out, and there are legitimate complaints to make about social media. But people often have this false idea that Twitter just involves revealing your current location or telling people you just went to the bathroom. It’s what you make of it.

      Agreed. Not that anyone needs to provide a reason for not participating. Some people are hilarious and fun and make “good use” out of the whole thing. I guess I just resent the idea that people are mocked and treated as silly coots for not wanting to play this particular game. My grandfather didn’t use a cordless phone in the 90′s b/c he couldn’t accept that there was a connection without a physical line. I can personally vouch that his life was not less or emptier by not accepting the new thing at the time. That’s how I feel about FB and Instagram and Twitter et al. Again, different strokes and all. Just try to refrain from treating those who don’t agree with your electronic choices as foolish or uninformed or whatever. That’s all :)
