11 Celebrities Who Got Caught Sliding Into People's DMs

Pretty much everyone has daydreamed about being hit on by their favorite celebrity – or hooking up with them. Maybe you've even imagined what it would be like to be a fan married to a famous person. Thanks to the advent of social media and the direct messaging function that has become oh so popular on Twitter and Instagram, those daydreams could become slightly sleazier realities. There are plenty of stories about celebrities hitting on fans in direct messages.

Famous people using DMs to hit on normal people is a shockingly common occurrence. Or, at least, the number of civilians exposing celebs on social media has increased. Celebrities who hit on fans via direct messaging run the risk of making headlines with their horniness if the intended hookup takes a savvy screenshot. Maybe you heard about the James Franco DM scandal, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.
