10 Celebrities Whose Moms Are Brilliant—and Embarrassing—on Social Media

If the day your mom joined Facebook–and subsequently clogged your newsfeed by sharing absolutely every link she found–was a stressful one for you, you’re not alone. Celebrities also suffer from moms-on-social-media syndrome, enduring endless comments and posts from the very public profiles belonging to–you guessed it–their mothers.

Some moms, like Lorde‘s, are cool online (she’s all fancy parties, sparkly boots and gaucho pants), while others are pigging-backing off their kid’s fame for their own social media success. (Miranda Kerr’s mom, for example, is now a major health Instagrammer and brand ambassador in Australia.)

Others are using social media the textbook way:  To embarrass their kids. Take Seth Rogen‘s mom: Her admissions that she’s “not that good at Twitter” and her demands for Seth to call her prove she’s perhaps the funniest clueless parent on Twitter.
