Stars have been finding ways to get themselves in trouble via social media since its inception. An ill-timed tweet or an impromptu Facebook post is nothing out of the ordinary.

But going live is a relatively new phenomenon, one that's already had its fair share of A-list casualties. Have a look below and check out these 15 times celebrities went live on Instagram — only to have it end in disaster.

Cameron Diaz struggles to pin a comment into the chat.

The first time going live can be a somewhat daunting experience for anyone, let alone someone with millions of followers. Still, watching Cameron read aloud the instructions sent to her by her team is rib-ticklingly funny.

There was that time that Cardi B admitted to partaking in several felonies.

Cardi claimed that this happened back when she was still a dancer. She would supposedly lure men with the promise of sex, only to end up spiking their drink. Once they were knocked out, she'd rob them blind.

When Dave Chapelle used a homophobic slur toward Daniel Caesar on John Mayer's 'Current Mood'.

Dave came of age during a time when it was considered acceptable for a man to call another man "gay" in a derogatory way. Daniel Caesar didn't think it was funny, and neither did the sweeping majority of John Mayer's fans.

21 Savage shows the world why rappers use autotune.

Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to know that 21 Savage is a Beyoncé fan and I'm even more jazzed about his choice of song. However, he kind of sounds like the drunk guy at the bar who won't stop singing karaoke.

Vanessa Hudgens nearly committed career suicide after spewing a red wine-induced COVID-19 rant.

During a live session with her friends and followers in the early days of the pandemic, Vanessa said "Even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible... but inevitable?"

Cardi B (again) went off on 'Access Hollywood'.

After seeing a clickbait article about her daughter on Access Hollywood, Cardi invited everyone at Access Hollywood to perform fellatio on her. She then told the reporter who wrote the article, "I hope your [expletive] mom catch[sic] AIDS, [expletive]."

When one of Adele's fans asked what her body count was, and the singer had no idea what the person meant.

"'What's my body count?' What does that mean?" the singer asked perplexed. This one may not have been a total disaster, but it was downright hilarious.

Demi Lovato accidentally walks in on Max Ehrich's Instagram live.

When the video begins, Max can be seen trying to signal Demi with his eyes. As she steps into view, he whispers "I'm live," causing her to throw a blanket over her face and run away.

When Lindsay Lohan accused a homeless family of trafficking children.

As Lindsay approaches the family to speak with them, she soon after begins trying to walk away with a young child. Once the mother sees this, she immediately strikes Lohan in the face.

Who called Doja Cat, "Babe"?

Earlier this year, Doja Cat was going live while enjoying a dip in the pool. All of a sudden, someone can be heard calling "Babe!" off-screen, prompting her to quickly end the live session.

The time that former 'Bachelorette' contestant, Hannah Brown, said the n-word while rapping.

Let's make one thing clear — it's never OK to use the n-word. Not in public, not in private, and most assuredly not while singing along to "ROCKSTAR" by DaBaby.

Justin Bieber, Hayley Bieber, and Kendall Jenner talk about their privilege.

"We can't feel bad for the things we have," the pop singer began, "but us taking that time to acknowledge that there are people who are struggling is important."

A lot of artists talk about "breaking the internet" but Taylor Swift broke Instagram, for real.

on June 13th, 2019, Taylor was going live to announce her upcoming album. So many users joined that it caused Instagram to crash and stay down for roughly an hour.

Millie Bobby Brown's skincare routine leaves a lot to the imagination.

While performing a dup for her own line of skincare products, Millie took her fans through her normal routine over Instagram live. Unfortunately, for some reason, she only pretended to use the products she was demoing.

The time Kim Kardashian scolded her son, Saint, for mouthing off to her followers.

While attempting to explain the concept of Instagram Live to her kids, Saint springs up from the backseat and shouts "Hi weirdos! If you're watching this, I hate you."
