Celebrities don't always get what they want. And they most certainly aren't welcome everywhere they go, despite their notoriety and wads of cash. From restaurants to hotels to entire countries, celebrities have crossed some lines that some view as too far.
Everyone loves a good celebrity temper tantrum. But not every celebrity tantrum is good for business. From Azealia Bank's recent Twitter tirade to Charlie Sheen's tiger blood meltdown, it's easy to understand why establishments would have no qualms about banning certain celebrity from ever stepping foot inside the building. Some celebrities have even been kicked out of entire countries due to their disastrous criminal records or even some minor social faux pas. For example, just look at Selena Gomez: the girl takes a picture with the wrong person and suddenly she's banned from entering China.Just like regular 2am wasted club-goers, celebrities can get kicked out of a bar for acting unruly. The only difference is that TMZ is instantaneously there to report on the matter. Some controversial, some wildly confusing, and some just downright odd - we've gathered some of the most noteworthy celebrity banishments in all of Hollywood. No publicity is bad publicity. But some bad publicity can definitely get these celebrities kicked out of some swanky places or banned from traveling to their favorite foreign getaway. Here are 22 celebrities that were banned from places that had had enough.

Rahr became visibly aggravated when he couldn't get a table at the pricy and busy restaurant. After the fireworks, Rahr was informed he was banned from the establishment. He proceeded to write an angry, ALL CAPS email verbally assaulting the manager.
