Celebrity is an infection that feeds on attention. Not on adoration, not on approval, but attention. Every toot, every reference, every @ of a celebrity at all, *even and especially* those that are negative, drive attention back toward that person.
Let's say that there are 25 of you who dislike them enough to talk about them or @ them, and 1,000 of you who dislike them enough to boost those toots.
Congratulations! You've just advertised their presence to the federated TL.
