(Newser) – Hopefully Adele wasn't wasting any time on Twitter after the birth of her son, because some "hateful trolls," as Mashable calls them, weren't exactly sending good wishes. Quite a few tweets mocked the singer's weight, including one from Joan Rivers: "Congratulations to Adele on the birth of her 68 pound 8 ounces bouncing baby boy." Sadly, Adele is far from the first celebrity to be bullied online; Celebuzz rounds up eight more:

  • Melanie Griffith was in for a nasty surprise when she recently joined Twitter. "Most people are telling me I look horrible," she revealed.
  • LeAnn Rimes actually ended up in rehab after her Twitter bullying.
  • Paris Jackson has a healthy attitude about the cyberbullying she's endured: "They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work."
  • After criticizing the vice-presidential debate, Tamera Mowry-Housley was attacked by people who took her for a Paul Ryan supporter. Her Fox News correspondent husband, Adam Housley, defended her.
