People Throwing Food at Celebrities…and Hitting Them!
Celebrities have fans that love them, and people that hate them. Sometimes they are cheered and applauded, and sometimes they are booed and even attacked. These are a few times where someone decided to take matters into their own hands and attack celebrities…with food. Pies, beer, and even a whole frozen ham…no food is off limits and no celebrity is completely safe. Let’s check out 7 celebrities who at food thrown at them.
1. Justin Bieber Pelted with Eggs
During one of his concerts in Sydney, Australia, a teenager threw an onslaught of eggs at Justin while he was performing on stage. The teenager was later arrested, but I’m sure many of us consider him a hero.

2. Lil Wayne Gets Crunk
During one of his live appearances, Lil Wayne had a bottle of beer thrown at him. Believe it or not, this has happened more than once to the eccentric
singer. Had had beer thrown at him at his concert in Dublin, Ireland, as well as an appearance in Fort Lauderdale. At the latter event, Lil Wayne called out the guy who threw the beer.
What happens after that is what makes this interesting. A man, possibly one of Lil Wayne’s bodyguards/crew, walks toward a guy in the audience. The “bodyguard” then proceeds to punch and give a beat down to the man in the crowd. It is speculated that the man who got punched was the same man who threw the beer.

3. Bill Gates Gets Cream-Pied
While in Brussels, Belgium, Bill Gates got attacked by three men who threw cream pies/tarts to his face. He was hit with a total of 4 cream pies. One of the men got away, but two were arrested. While Bill Gates did not want to press charges, the two men did have to pay for their crimes. They were each fined 75 euros (around $82 USD at the time of this writing). These serial “pie throwers” had throw pastries at people before, but this was the first time that any of them were convicted.

4. Rupert Murdoch Gets Attacked with Pie – Wife Kicks Ass
I know what most of you are thinking. Who the heck is Rupert Murdoch? I didn’t know either. He is the founder and CEO of News Corporation, which is the second largest media conglomerate in the world. So yes, he’s rich. Really, really rich.
During a committee hearing, a man attacked Rupert Murdoch with a pie of some sort. The 80 year-old Murdoch didn’t appear to know what was going on, but luckily, with the help of his now ex-wife, Wendi Deng, the attacked was stopped. Wendi Deng is 37 years younger than Murdoch, so she still has a spring in her step and rushed right in to help stop the attacker.

5. Kim Kardashian Gets Blasted with Flour
Looks like Christmas came early for Kim Kardashian at her perfume launch. It looked like she got a very white Christmas after an animal activist poured flour all over her. It got into her hair, on her jacket, and just about everywhere else. It seemed that the woman who attacked the reality star was protesting Kardashian’s use of animal fur for fashion. The attacker was taken into custody.

6. Paula Deen Gets a Whole Ham to the Face!
Paula Deen, the celebrity chef known to put incredible amounts of butter and sugar in her dishes, had a rude awakening when she was hit in the fact with a whole ham. Mrs. Deen was delivering hams to a charity when one of the volunteers tossed one at her, fully expecting her to catch it.
It didn’t go as planned though. Mrs. Deen failed to catch it with her hands, but did a fairly good job at catching it on the chin. The ham weighed 8 pounds (3.6kg). That’s enough to put down a heavyweight boxer, but Paula Deen took it like a champ. This one wasn’t intentional…or was it?

7. David Bowie Gets a Lollipop Stuck in His Eye
Either this was a freak accident, or the person who threw the lollipop has the aim of a skilled marksman. While on performing on stage in Osla, Norway, someone from the crowd threw a lollipop at the English artist. What is crazy is that the stick of the lollipop actually got stuck in between Mr.Bowie’s left eye and eyelid. Yikes. It was the same eye that is permanently dilated due to a fight he got into as a kid (with fellow artist George Underwood).
Thankfully, Mr. Bowie did not suffer any serious injury. It was rumored that a woman threw the lollipop. However, it was not on purpose. It was an accident caused by someone pushing her while she was dancing…and thus catapulting the lollipop towards David Bowie.
