As a rule of thumb, most celebrities who are rude try to keep their less than savory behavior under wraps in case the fan they’re being rude to blabs to the press. But before super rude celebs were famous, they weren’t worried about gossip rags or being exposed by bloggers, so they let their rude flag fly. A lot of celebrities have a PR person who knows how to spin their client’s bad behavior, but some celebs are just jerks down to the bone, and this list is going to expose the who’s who amongst the jerks.
