Steve Martin was just the latest celebrity to make a Twitter mishap this weekend.

On Friday night, the "Father of the Bride" actor tweeted to his followers that they should "submit your grammar here," and one user asked, "Is this how you spell lasonia?" Martin responded, "It depends. Are you in an African-American neighborhood or at an Italian restaurant?"

After Martin deleted the insensitive tweet, he aplogized. "My tweet was highly inappropriate," he wrote.

From jokes about a deadly tsunami to naked selfies that just shouldn't have happened, here is a quick look at other Twitter gaffes.

In response to a report that his wife was tweeting during a funeral, Alec Baldwin addressed the reporter on Twitter.

"I'm gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna f––," the "30 Rock" actor wrote to the reporter who questioned his wife's etiquette.

After the 2011 Japanese tsunami that killed more than 15,000 and caused billions in damages, Gilbert Gottfried felt the need to tweet about it.

"Japan is really advanced. They don't go to the beach. The beach comes to them."

He was fired as the Aflac spokesman shortly after this and other offensive tweets about Japan.

Geraldo's naked selfie - not much more to say.

"70 is the new 50," he wrote next to a picture of himself with just a towel covering his private parts.

Rivera blamed tequila for the pic and even told a radio station that he woke up the next morning to a text from his 18-year-old daughter who messaged him in all caps: "TAKE THAT THING DOWN RIGHT NOW!"

After "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn died in a car accident in 2011, where he was allegedly drinking and driving, the late movie critic felt the need to weigh in.

"Friends, don't let jackasses drink and drive," he wrote. The backlash from the "Jackass" family and fans was instant. He later admitted he might have tweeted too quickly.

"The Office" star thought he was being funny when he tweeted, "If I were ever date raped I would want it to be to 'Whole Lotta Love' by Led Zeppelin."

After a decent amount of backlash, Wilson deleted the tweet and wrote, "Not a good topic to joke about. Sorry & won't do that again."

The singer got into a Twitter argument with comedian Jenny Johnson, where at one point he told her he wanted to go to the bathroom on her face.

His account was deactivated shortly after.

Most celebs should just refrain from using the N-word at all costs.

Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted "Ni**as in Paris for real," referring to the Jay Z song after a photo was shared where her, Jay Z and Kanye West were all on stage together during the rappers' "Watch the Throne" tour.
