In no particular order, here are 10 examples of male celebrities throwing shade!

Although Adam denies that his tweet is shady, it has been heavily speculated that the tweet was directed at Nick Jonas whose topless photos was an alleged marketing move to cater to the gay community.
2. Rob Kardashian
Rob Kardashian pretty much voiced out what we’ve all been thinking all along.
3. Snoop Dogg
No need to feel sorry for Iggy, her comeback proves she can take care of herself!
4. Justin Bieber

5. Brad Pitt
This one comes as a little surprise. Brad Pitt didn’t just throw shade, he threw shade at his BFF George Clooney! He was quoted in an interview when asked about his and George’s respective weddings as saying
We did it for the right reasons

Is that a proper cat? Or is it damaged? That’s the weirdest cat I’ve ever seen in my life.

No longer the nice Disney kid he used to be, Nick Jonas showed his shady side when he threw some shade at Justin Bieber with this shady line while playing a game
This looks ridiculous. This is Justin. That’s the clean giveaway.
9. Elton John

If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray Of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly… She looks like a f****** fairground stripper
10. Kanye West
