Dumbest celebrity quotes of 2012: Donald Trump, Lee Ryan, Chris Brown

By
2012 was a vintage year for celebrities' mouths getting them in trouble. Granted, nobody ever managed to reach the insanity of Charlie Sheen during his infamous 'Tiger Blood' meltdown of 2011, but there were still plenty of stars feeling the repercussions of speaking before thinking in the past 12 months.

Below are some of Digital Spy's favourite controversial, nauseating or just plain dumb quotes from the world of showbiz...

Lee Ryan: "If I said what I was really thinking about this f**ked up world, the government would assassinate me like all the other people they've killed."

Blue's Lee Ryan is no stranger to a Twitter meltdown. Having previously ranted about his ex-girlfriend selling stories and declared that "this sight should be banned!!!", the 'All Rise' singer outdid himself in November by claiming that he would be targeted by "legal gangsters" for his outspoken views. Gushing about some "amazing" rehearsals between his pontificating did not help us take his conspiracy theories seriously.

Amanda Holden: "If I had a dream show, I probably shouldn't even mention it in this climate, but it would be like a kind of Fix It show."

A moronic moment exclusive to Digital Spy, this one! When we asked Amanda Holden what her dream TV show would be, we expected the Britain's Got Talent judge to come back with something light and fluffy. We certainly didn't anticipate that she'd express her love for Jimmy Savile's famous, and now completely tainted, programme right in the middle of the late presenter's child sex abuse scandal. Needless to say, we were pulling at our collars through the rest of that interview...

Alex Reid places ice on his black eye

Alex Reid: "Forget about Alex Reid, the celebrity. I never wanted to be famous for being famous. 'I'm a crossdressing cagefighter monkey boy.'"

We wish we could forget about you altogether, Alex Reid. But when you come out with forehead-slapping gems like this one at a mixed martial arts event, it's not exactly easy. FYI, Reid's comments denouncing the showbiz world came mere weeks after he recorded a personal video message to ex-fiancée Chantelle Houghton through Now magazine...

Donald Trump: [About Barack Obama's election]: "Let's fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us."

The Donald appears to have switched targets to his UK Apprentice counterpart Lord Sugar in recent times, but prior to Barack Obama's re-election in November the man dubbed "a flaming asshole" by Cher was intent on destroying the President, offering a $5m (£3m) charity donation if Obama revealed his education and passport records. When Obama declined his offer and beat Republican candidate Mitt Romney anyway, Trump declared that the only possible course of action was to "march on Washington".

Niall Horan: [To a group of fans]: "You shower of c**ts."

Luckily for little Niall Horan, One Directions fans will forgive their boys for pretty much any atrocity. Still, it wasn't a particularly smart move to direct the most horrendous of all swear words at a group of teenage girls - aka 1D's target market - at Dublin Airport when the band's status as global superstars hadn't quite been cemented.

Angus T Jones: "Please stop watching Two and a Half Men... and filling your head with filth."

Last month, Two and a Half Men's adorable doughball Jake Harper grew up and got ballsy, pleading with viewers to stop watching his own programme, declaring: "You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that." Looks like Jones might get his wish soon, as the 19-year-old will apparently exit his $300,000 (£185,000)-a-week role (he's allegedly still collecting the money, by the way) at the end of its current season. Maybe Charlie Sheen was right about Men being cursed.

Karl Lagerfeld: "The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat."

Commenting on the weight of a woman is already a no-no, but commenting on the weight of a woman with a sensational talent beloved the whole world over is just asking for one, global bitchslap. It didn't matter that the Chanel boss also praised Adele's "beautiful face and a divine voice" - by focusing on her physique over her performing skills, he'd already done himself in.

Paris Hilton: "I would be so scared if I was a gay guy...you'll, like, die of AIDS."

Paris Hilton's comments about homosexual men, made while talking to a friend about Grindr, are intriguing in that they are both the most immediately offensive on this list and, in the right context, arguably the most excusable - Hilton claimed the remarks were the tail end of a conversation about a gay man with AIDS knowingly having unprotected sex. Be that as it may, Paris could have saved herself a lot of bother if she'd just chosen her words more carefully or surrounded herself with people who wouldn't film her convo and sell it to TMZ.

Chris Brown: "Mum says hello... She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to s**t right on the retina."

While Chris Brown may have somehow managed to win Rihanna back, many have not been so willing to let him forget his 2009 assault on the 'Diamonds' singer. One such person was comedian Jenny Johnson, who branded him "a worthless piece of s**t" in an admittedly quite inflammatory tweet. Brown could have kept a dignified silence, but instead came out with some creative, yet utterly contemptible, poop-related putdowns of his own.

Lindsay Lohan: "WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i'm calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity!"

Lindsay Lohan has shown herself to have ridiculously poor judgement in the past, hence her numerous run-ins with the law and her involvement in Liz and Dick. So is it any wonder that she did something as dumb as playfully calling Hurricane Sandy "sassy" before it went on to claim the lives of 253 people?

Katie Price: "I f**ked Alex up the arse with a vodka bottle."

Regretfully, Digital Spy was in the room when Katie Price made this charming revelation about her ex-husband at a book launch in June. And all she'd been asked was, "What's the rudest thing you've ever done?" Couldn't she have just spared our blushes and said she once went to bed without flossing or something?
