Donald Trump has slammed a number of celebrities over the years. Gossip Cop now takes a look back at some of the Republican presidential nominee’s negative remarks and biggest insults aimed at stars.

In 2011, while Trump was questioning President Obama’s birthplace, Robert De Niro compared the candidate to a “car salesman.” Trump later responded in an interview, “I like his acting, but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we’re not dealing with Albert Einstein.” That same year, Jerry Seinfeld pulled out of a planned appearance at Eric Trump’s charity foundation over his father’s birther controversy. Trump lashed out by insulting Seinfeld’s show, “The Marriage Ref,” saying, “Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did.”

Trump also took issue with former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart incessantly mocking him on the Comedy Central program. “Jon Stewart is the most overrated joke on television,” he once tweeted. “A wiseguy with no talent. Not smart, but convinces dopes he is! Fading out fast.” The presidential candidate similarly dissed Martha Stewart when NBC launched the spinoff, “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart.” He wrote, “I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it, and your low ratings bore me out.”

When Samuel L. Jackson publicly accused Trump of cheating at golf the time they played together, the GOP nominee tweeted, “I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven’t played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.” Back in 2012, Cher called Trump a “racist cretin” and “loudmouth,” and he shot back by tweeting, “I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work,” then urged the singer to “spend more time focusing on her family and dying career.”

In October 2015, Mark Cuban offered Trump $1 million to charity if the businessman shaved his head. Trump responded, “Offer me real money and I’d consider it. Your team and networks have lost so much money I doubt you have much left!” And earlier this year, Trump took it upon himself to declare in an interview with The New York Times that supermodel Heidi Klum was “no longer a 10.” Additionally, Trump criticized Kim Kardashian’s weight during a 2013 “Showbiz Tonight” interview, saying, “She’s gotten a little bit large. I would say this, I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.”

Miley Cyrus also received the dubious honor of being bashed by Trump after he insisted the pop star was “on a very tricky and slippery path right now. The right moves will lead to greatness, the wrong moves to oblivion! GUIDANCE.” About Shia LaBeouf’s past legal troubles, Trump tweeted, “I know Shia LaBeouf, and when sober, a really nice guy. Must get act together fast before too late.” And after the video emerged of Beyonce’s sister Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator, the Republican nominee opined, “I really like Jay Z but there is trouble in paradise. When his wife’s sister starts whacking him, not good! No help from B leads to a mess.”

When Katy Perry and Russell Brand wed in 2011, Trump tweeted, “I like Russell Brand, but Katy Perry made a big mistake when she married him. Let’s see if I’m right – I hope not.” The mogul also had his own thoughts about the relationship between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. When the actress hooked up with director Rupert Sanders while she was still dating her Twilight co-star, Trump tweeted, “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart, she cheated on him like a dog and will do it again – just watch.”

The presidential candidate is also no fan of Madonna and her music. “Many people walked out on Madonna’s concert when she told them to vote for Obama,” he wrote in 2012. “Years ago I walked out because the concert was terrible!” And when Seth Meyers was named host of the Emmys in 2014, Trump expressed on Twitter, “That Seth Meyers is hosting the Emmy Awards is a total joke. He is very awkward with almost no talent. Marbles in his mouth!”

And perhaps most notably, there’s Rosie O’Donnell, who Trump has been bashing since their infamous feud kicked off more than a decade ago. In fact, Hillary Clinton alluded to it during Monday’s first presidential debate, saying, “This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs.” Trump then mentioned O’Donnell by name and admitted, “I said very tough things to her, and I think everyone would agree that she deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her.”
