Celebrities Who #Insta Regretted and Were Quick To Delete These Social Media Photos

Celebrities (and their PR teams) work hard to maintain their images. But, every once in a while they slip up and post something they probably regret. It could be a photo that is obviously photoshopped, or just an image that makes them look bad. However, many fans are able to screenshot these embarrassing hiccups and share them on the internet so that we can look at them forever.Here are some deleted celebrity photos that our favorite celebrity definitely #instaregretted.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann

Kim Zolciak-Biermann didn't take long to remove this photo once she posted it. After the photo was posted onto Instagram, several rumors emerged about Biermann's daughter having plastic surgery. Once she saw the rumors begin, Biermann immediately removed the image.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens posted a photo of what seemed to be a romantic gesture of her and her boyfriend's (Austin Butler) names carved into a rock in Sedona. Although it was cute, what she didn't know was that the area was protected by federal law, and so she was basically taking a photo of her crime. She removed the photo from social media, but still received a fine for vandalism. Yiiikes.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is usually known for her good girl image, so obviously fans were shocked to see the star in her underwear on instagram. She deleted the post after it was put up online for a few hours. Guess she decided to keep her profile a little less revealing.


Kendall Jenner

Kendall is known for being (somewhat) more reserved than her sisters, so when she posted this photo on instagram, fans were surprised to see this much skin from the 22-year-old. She deleted the photo from her account a few hours after she posted it. Since then, we've seen a little bit more skin from this Kardashian on social media.

James Franco

The internet kind've erupted after James Franco posted this nearly naked selfie. The photo itself was quite cringe-worthy and questionable, even for the 40-year-old actor. After it went viral (and probably because he saw all the things everyone was saying about him online), he deleted the photo. However, this photo wasn't the only thing he removed. He quickly and quietly deleted all of his social media accounts shortly after.

Joe Jonas

We guess Joe Jonas felt a little uncomfortable after he overestimated his friendships with fellow music artists Kanye West and Zayn Malik. The caption referred to the three of them as members of his squad, but little did Joe know that Zayn had been dating his ex-girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, making things pretty uncomfortable. It seems after the news of Malik and Hadid went public, Jonas removed this photo.

The Weekend

The Weekend posted this photo of girlfriend, Selena Gomez early on before they made their public debut as a couple. It seems that soon after the photo was posted, it was removed. However, that didn't stop fans from beginning to believe that the two of them were together. Perhaps Gomez insisted it be taken down because she did not want anyone to find out about their relationship.


Justin Bieber

The Biebs is known for his erratic and crazy antics, so it didn't really come as a surprise (but it still kind've did) when he posted a photo of his naked behind on instagram. It seemed like he hadn't been that embarrassed about it, since he left it up for multiple days before deleting the image.

Chase McNary

It seems like Biebs, this former Bachelorette star did not leave much to the imagination with this revealing post. However, it seems he removed it from Instagram after it was posted.Guess he didn't really want THAT much attention.

Adam Lind

Looks like it was probably best that this Teen Mom 2 star delete this photo after posting it. When he posted it, he was in the midst of a custody battle. It seems like this selfie would not have helped his case in the least.

Kendall Jenner

It looks like Kendall was trying to show us her funny side by poking fun at herself while wearing a sweatshirt that says, "I have no tits." However, it seems that Kendall had second thoughts about the boldness the photo, seeing as it was removed just a few minutes after it was posted.


Blac Chyna

It seems Black Chyna couldn't take the heat that came after posting this #tbt for her followers, seeing as she deleted it a few minutes after. Looks like she was not ready to share a look from her past with all her thousands of followers.

Scott Disick

It seems that this one is more funny than anything. Disick seemed to struggle with figuring out how a promotional Instagram post should work. The reality star included details about when he should post the photo and what he should write as the caption. After looking at his comments and seeing that he majorly screwed up, he deleted the photo.

Harry Styles

It seems that even big fans aren't afraid to call their favorite music artists out when they screw up. It seems Harry found his breaking point with fans when he posted this photo of him wearing a Native American headdress. The fans quickly commented that he was being naive and called him out for cultural appropriation. Once people began criticizing him, he deleted the post from social media.

Kourtney Kardashian

It didn't really take Kourtney long to delete this throwback photo of her and her two sisters. Although we're not sure why exactly the photo was deleted, it could be perhaps it fueled plastic surgery rumors? Or simply that the sisters felt the photo was too unflattering.


Chris Brown

It seems that although Chris Brown was excited about his new ink, his fans were not exactly thrilled about it. People were extremely confused about the tattoo, and many people left negative comments on the photo. Not wanting to deal with criticism and harsh comments, he deleted the photo after it had been posted.

Kylie Jenner

It seems that Instagram almost collapsed after Kylie Jenner posted a basically topless photo. The photo was part of a series of scandalous polaroids she had taken. However, it seems she had second thoughts about the photos and deleted them moments after they went up.

Taylor Swift

It seems that Taylor Swift posted this photo of her at her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris' performance during Coachella. However, right after they broke up, she deleted all the posts having to do with their relationship. She event went as far as to purge all her social media accounts before the release of her latest album.

Russell Brand

When Russell Brand and Katy Perry were dating, he posted this very much unflattering photo of Perry. It seemed clear that he hadn't had permission to post such a photo, as the post was deleted almost immediately after it. surfaced.
