25 Celebrities Who Captured The Right Moment To Perfectly Troll Their Kids

The rise of social media means that our parents are online: they want to be our friends on Facebook, they want to upload photos of us on Twitter, and they can’t wait to comment on our posts on Instagram. The horror! Now imagine that your parents were world-renowned actors, pop stars, and celebrities. Every move they make gets viewed thousands if not millions of times. And God forbid they decide to troll you for the entire world to see.

Some stars really enjoyed poking fun at their kids online and we’ve got some of the best examples of celeb parents trolling their children. When you’re done enjoying this post, check out Bored Panda’s list about the times that parents ‘destroyed’ their kids on Facebook right here. Let us know in the comments if you think celeb or regular parents make better online trolls.

Celebrity expert Mike Sington, whom Bored Panda got in touch with, said that “gentle online trolling of your kids is actually a very modern way of parenting.” Read on for the rest of Mike’s insights about celebrity parents, the challenges that they face, and why trolling kids shouldn’t be overdone.

According to Hollywood’s Ultimate Insider Mike, gently trolling kids on social media is a way to connect and bond with them. However, celebrity parents should try not to overdo things because it might backfire on them.

“You go to where your kids are, and where they are is online. It’s a clever way to get their attention and be able to bond with them. It’s got to be done in a kind-hearted manner though, or could easily backfire. If you make your kid angry, as easily as you trolled them, they can just as easily block you!”

According to Mike, parenting when you’re a star with the world’s gaze on you 24/7 is immensely challenging. “Every move you’re making is being watched. If a negative interaction with your kid is observed, or seen on your or your kid’s social media, it’s going to rocket around the world. That can be damaging to not only your relationship with your child, but it can also be damaging to your career,” the celebrity expert explained the dangers of slipping up even a single time when trolling kids.

“The scrutiny of being a celebrity parent can be overwhelming,” he added.

While it’s no surprise that some celebs great at trolling have a background in comedy, there were some unexpected contenders, too, like legendary singer Mick Jagger.

Apparently, some stars aren’t afraid to show they’ve got a softer, human side and that they love to have fun, too.

That’s one thing that we tend to forget about celebrities—that behind the coating of glitz, glamor, and glitter, they’re people just like you and I. And they have most of the same parenting problems and rely on pretty much the same advice as us regular non-famous folks.
