Never meet your heroes. People often only get one chance to meet their celebrity idols and, sadly, if they don't get it right the first time, they must simply live with that awkward memory seared into their brain for the rest of their lives. At least they'll be in good company: @rachyymarshall recently asked Twitter "what is the stupidest thing you've said to a celebrity?" and the number of cringeworthy responses was astounding.






The level of awkwardness in some of these posts is too much to handle.





What were these people thinking?




PLEASE...MAKE IT STOP.




If the universe is merciful, none of these celebrities remember their interactions.



Honestly, Taylor should have loved this joke:




For celebrities, strange encounters like these are probably common.


Alcohol likely played a role in some of these as well...



There's nothing sadder than a failed joke.


So, if you're ever feeling bad about yourself, just remember: at least you're not one of these people.
