FOR­MER shadow chan­cel­lor and Strictly Come Danc­ing con­tes­tant Ed Balls ac­ci­den­tally tweeted his own name on April 28, 2011, when he was shop­ping in a su­per­mar­ket and Ed Balls Day was born. The orig­i­nal tweet ended up be­ing shared 103,000 times. Star Wars ac­tor Mark Hamill joined in the fun and Ed replied with “#MayThe Ball­sBeWithYou.” THE re­boot of Amer­i­can sit­com Roseanne has been can­celled af­ter a “racist” tweet by the show’s 65-year-old star Roseanne Barr, left, com­par­ing for­mer Barack Obama ad­viser Va­lerie Jar­rett to an ape. Roseanne later re­turned to Twit­ter to apol­o­gise to col­leagues who lost their jobs say­ing: “I just want to apol­o­gize to the hun­dreds of peo­ple, and won­der­ful writ­ers (all lib­eral) and tal­ented ac­tors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.” DEAD­POOL star Ryan Reynolds has be­come fa­mous for his out­ra­geous com­edy quips on Twit­ter. He wrote last year: “I’d walk through fire for my daugh­ter. Well not FIRE, be­cause it’s dan­ger­ous. But a su­per hu­mid room. But not too hu­mid, be­cause my hair.”
