Some celebrities resort to blocking people on Twitter in order to filter out rude, toxic, and even abusive messages. And some are just looking for a digital way to stick their fingers in their ears and say, ‘Na-na na-na na-na, I can’t hear you.’

They called out actors, musicians, athletes, models, and even presidents — or rather, a president — who banned then from accessing their tweets.
