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. 

Following remarks about longtime star Keke Palmer experiencing a "breakout" role in Jordan Peele’s 'Nope,' a viral tweet on July 23 drew attention to a perceived difference in mainstream popularity between Palmer and Zendaya, who are both former child-stars, claiming it is “one of the clearest examples of how colorism plays out in Hollywood.” But Palmer wasn't having any of it.

The next day Palmer tweeted, "A great example of colorism is to believe I can be compared to anyone. I’m the youngest talk show host ever. The first Black woman to star in her own show on Nickelodeon, & the youngest & first Black Cinderella on broadway. I’m an incomparable talent. Baby, THIS, is Keke Palmer.”

The 28-year-old star continued, “I’ve been a leading lady since I was 11 years old. I have over 100+ credits, and currently starring in an original screenplay that’s the number one film at the box office #NOPE. I’ve had a blessed career thus far, I couldn’t ask for more but God continues to surprise me.” 'Nope' has opened in first place at the weekend’s box office, so it's clear Palmer doesn't need our help in securing her place among the greats. 

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.
