The most epic celebrity clapbacks ever

StarsInsider Logo By Stars Insider of StarsInsider | Slide 1 of 59: Celebrities have to deal with a lot of criticism. While many have loyal legions of fans who back them up at all times, there are also many haters (mostly keyboard warriors) who use the Internet to troll celebs. There are also many fellow celebrities who love to stir the pot, and stars are often left with two choices, ignore or clap back, and it's usually the latter. Martin Scorsese famously told Empire in 2019 that Marvel movies "are not cinema," and likened them to "theme parks." Then Francis Ford Coppola echoed his statements and added, "Martin was kind when he said it's not cinema. He didn't say it's despicable, which I just say it is." But MCU star Elizabeth Olsen isn't going to take their criticism lying down. The actress, who plays the role of Wanda Maximoff/The Scarlet Witch, criticized those famed filmmakers' comments as they "make [Marvel movies] seem like a lesser type of art," she told The Independent. "I'm not saying we're making indie art films, but I just think it takes away from our crew, which bugs me.""These are some of the most amazing set designers, costume designers, camera operators – I feel diminishing them with that kind of criticism takes away from all the people who do award-winning films, that also work on these projects," the actress, who is currently starring in 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,' said.Olsen acknowledged that the MCU movies are intended to make a lot of money, and added, "From an actor's point of view, whatever, I get it; I totally understand that there's a different kind of performance that's happening." She continued, "But I do think throwing Marvel under the bus takes away from the hundreds of very talented crew people. That's where I get a little feisty about that."Celebrity clapbacks range from hilarious to absolutely brutal, and they can be targeted at just about anyone. Indeed there are many witty celebs out there, and they too take to social media to express their opinions and shut down those who criticize them. So, without further ado, browse through this gallery and check out the best celebrity clapbacks.
