Living your life in the public eye can be very strange, and it can undoubtedly warp your sense of reality if you’ve lived in the limelight for long enough. Therefore, it’s not shocking to learn that many celebrities feel as though they are above the rules and can get away with things that ordinary people cannot. Unfortunately, this inflated sense of self can lead to poor choices, bad behavior, and terrible manners.

Since most of us live in the real world, many of us don’t tolerate these types of antics. Here are 15 celebrities who have been banned from bizarre places including countries, states, and hotels for their poor choices.

1. Miley Cyrus

  • Banned from: China and the Dominican Republic

It’s really bad when an entire country bans you, but racism is pretty unforgivable so we understand. Back in 2009, Miley Cyrus was banned from China when she shared a photograph of her and her friends mocking the Asian community. The pop star was seen pulling her eyes back to make them slanted. The Hanna Montana alum gave a dull apology saying she was just having a laugh and making a goofy face, but the Chinese government was not having it.

They replied that they had “no interest in further polluting [their] children’s minds with her American ignorance.” Cyrus has also been banned from the Dominican Republic for her overtly sexual Bangerz World Tour performance. This particular ban just seems sexist.
