Celebrities’ Worst Foot-in-Mouth Scandals (VIDEO)

We’ve got an idea for a brand new award show category for Hollywood’s rich and famous: Who Put Their Foot In It Best. Honestly, there are so many contenders for the trophy that the Academy might have a hard time picking a winner. Just think of how many people would be in the running if our fantasy honor was in fact available.

Here’s a small sampling of nominees: Paula Deen and, a latecomer to the category, Jonah Hill. Where the first got herself into hot water (she’s a cook! Get it?!) over a history of racist and sexist actions and remarks, Jonah just recently found himself in deep doo-doo after losing his temper with a paparazzo.

Justin Bieber, while perhaps not so new to issuing public apologies as Jonah is, had a similar scandal break this week. Footage of a younger Biebs (just a teen at the time cameras rolled) shows him telling a racist joke. The 20-year-old has since apologized for his former self, telling TMZ, “As a young man, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt.”

OK, Justin. You can take home the prize for Best Apology Made Within 24 Hours of Scandal Breaking.
