Celebrities aren't always shining examples of good behavior. Famous folks are frequently caught in comprising positions, whether they're casually shoplifting, spotted acting badly on planes, or being jerks in drive thrus. But parking in a handicapped spot? Surely even the most callous able-bodied celebrity wouldn't do that - right?

Unfortunately, some notable people seem to think they're entitled to any parking spot they want. These stars who illegally parked weren't thinking about any consequences, despite being in the public eye. Maybe fame has gone to their heads. Maybe they were in a rush. Or maybe they didn't see the large signs all over the spot. Whatever the reasoning behind their eyebrow-raising choice, it's a bad look to take a handicapped spot when you don't need it.

Some of these celebrities caught parking in handicapped spots were on the receiving end of an immediate backlash, while others were shamed online later. When it comes to cars and basic morals, these famous people who parked in handicapped spots are just like everyone else.

In 2012, Miley Cyrus was caught parking her white Mercedes SL550 in a handicapped spot outside of her Pilates class. The rude move was especially surprising, given Cyrus's reputation for her charitable work; The Happy Hippie Foundation seeks to fight the injustices homeless LGBTQ youth face. Hopefully this parking faux pas was a rare misstep.

There's never a good time to park in a handicapped spot if you're able-bodied, but in Kanye West's case, this was especially bad timing. In 2015, hot on the heels of sister-in-law Kylie Jenner's terribly misjudged wheelchair photoshoot for Interview magazine, West parked his Range Rover in a handicapped spot.

Julia Roberts seems like a pretty decent person. She loves the environment and is all about protecting the planet, even to the detriment of her hygiene - Roberts apparently rarely showers. But here's one mark against her good person credentials: in 2007, she was spotted parking her SUV in a handicapped spot right outside a Malibu grocery store.
