Camilla Cabello

Buzzfeed user RubieChanel said she no longer liked Cabello after incidents of silence over racism and not calling out fans that were harassing her best friend at the time.

"Camila Cabello. I don't hate her, and I do hope that she's actually changed for the better after everything that's happened, but I can't be a part of her fanbase anymore, nor can I support her work. Her stans were blatantly racist toward Normani and edited her face onto the body of a man who was lynched, all because Normani called Camila quirky in an interview. It took Camila years to even acknowledge the things that took place, which is disgusting considering they were 'best friends.'"

Chrissy Teigen

Teigen had a very public fall from grace after it was revealed she harassed and bullied Courtney Stodden on Twitter and told her to kill herself.

User dishanath1 said, "I'm not on Twitter, but whenever I would read about Chrissy Teigen's tweets, I would find it witty, until last year that is. And with everything that was unearthed this year with her bullying and misogynistic remarks, I'm put off for life!"

Another user himalayall added, "I thought she was funny in a savage way. Some of her tweets and comments I found a bit harsh and inappropriate at times, but then Courtney Stodden called her out for saying she should kill herself."

Jared Leto

There's one thing called method acting and another thing called abuse and harassment. Leto falls clearly into the latter.

u/gh0stmanX said, "I used to be a huge 30 Seconds to Mars fan, and Jared Leto seemed like a solid guy from the interviews I had seen back in the day. Over time, though, I started to realize how pretentious he is [even sending his Joker co-stars unprompted packages of anal beads, live rats, condoms, and a dead pig]."

Kelly Clarkson

The American Idol star fell from grace after revealing that she spanked her children who were as young as 1 year old. 

"I stopped admiring Kelly Clarkson after learning that she spanks her kids, and was doing this to her 1-year-old. She not only defended this, but tried to make it sound wholesome. Now all I hear when she's belting it out on the radio is, 'That's the voice that strikes fear into her toddler-aged children,'" said bletcherouscretin.

Sia

Sia, the singer turned filmmaker was criticised for exploiting disabilities for profit, supporting controversial organisations and misrepresenting people on the autistic spectrum.

User u/RedWestern said, "Sia's movie Music basically completed the entire checklist for how not to make a movie about autism. She cast a neurotypical person, used Autism Speaks as a consultant, had a very clichéd and unrealistic depiction of autism, and showed dangerous and inappropriate means of controlling autism as if they were normal."

Gwyneth Paltrow

The actress and owner of Goop has been criticised for selling pseudoscience and spreading misinformation.

"Gwyneth Paltrow's bullshit pseudo health information she spreads is terribly incorrect and cringeworthy. It’s sad how many people are actually influenced by it as well."

Armie Hammer

Things took a horrific and strange turn for Armie Hammer when one of his ex-partners and victims shared screenshots of conversations where he insinuated he would be into cannibalism. 

He was also accused of rape. 

user maddielaw1196 said, "Armie Hammer should be up here for the rape accusations and cannibalism claims."

Dr Phil

User buggerrrnaut had an issue with Dr Phil's methods on TV, "I wasn't the biggest fan of Dr. Phil, but I did admire him. It's been a few weeks since I learned how some people are abused at the Turn-About Ranch treatment facility he sends them to."

JK Rowling

The creator of the Potter megaverse fell from grace hard when her TERF stance and anti-trans narratives became public.

joeym29 was one among many to be disappointed in the writer, "So many LGBTQ+ readers were able to find solace and acceptance in the Harry Potter books, only for JK Rowling's anti-trans comments to be a slap in the face. The books always had some iffy handling of sensitive issues but hearing her dismissive and infantilizing comments about trans people is so blatant, it's sickening."

Molly1112 was of the same opinion,

"It’s like JK is actively trying to ruin her legacy. For an author whose whole series was supposedly built around love and tolerance and accepting others who are different and stigmatized, it’s just awful to see her authentic self.  She’s also affected to a degree how I feel about Harry Potter, and I hate that she’s been able to do that to something I loved so much for so long."

Drake Bell

After inappropriately speaking to minors online and trying to meet them, Drake of Drake & Josh fame found himself in the public eye again for all the wrong reasons.

"I liked Drake Bell until he was charged with child endangerment and sentenced to two years probation," said donutss1234.

Roseanne Barr

The beloved actress that changed tv in the 90s turned out to be the opposite of what she stood for in the show.

"I was a huge fan of Roseanne Barr in the '90s. Her show was groundbreaking for its time with commentary on race and sexuality. It was about a lower-class family, which broke the usual sitcom form. It was the first sitcom not featuring a 'perfect family.' I thought Roseanne was so cool and progressive with her ideas for the show. It all came crashing down when we learned that she was a big right-wing, Trump-supporting racist. I was so sad to learn that Roseanne Barr was nothing like Roseanne Conner," said mariat4e50d731d.

James Corden

James Corden is already rather disliked for his comedy but things took a sour turn when his classist tendencies were revealed.

u/Schlag96 said, "I used to think James Corden's self-deprecating style, his ingenuity with comedy, and the 'Carpool Karaoke' idea were great. Then I saw story after story from fan encounters where he is a complete and utter douche. Now that I know he's a fake, his shtick is unwatchable. There was a time he played the question game with Jimmy Kimmel and couldn't name two of his own camera people."

Kanye West, now Ye

The artist now known only as Ye has had a controversial few years falling and rising in the public eye multiple times and having recently split with his wife Kim Kardashian.

 "Kanye West's contribution to hip-hop music is undeniable, especially his first six solo albums and his work as a producer in the late '90s/early '00s. His public persona was always a bit annoying, but ultimately harmless. 2020 changed that. His presidential run was a bridge too far for me, especially since it was supported by right-wing operatives who probably wanted to use him as a spoiler candidate. And the quality of his music has also diminished. Not a lot of redeeming qualities left to hold on to," said u/HutSutRawlson.

Lea Michele

The Glee star was a beloved sweetheart and girl next door but was revealed to be quite the horrendous co-star years after the show wrapped up.

u/BebeBarber said, "Honestly, I used to admire Lea Michele. I used to think all the diva stuff was just nasty rumors, but turns out it's not [like Samantha Marie Ware claiming Lea Michele said she would 'shit in her wig.']"

Brendon Urie

The Panic! at the Disco singer was loved for his unique take on music but was revealed to have used racist and anti-trans slurs. Having apologised since then, things have not improved much for his public image. 

Nyx_Black said, "I was a massive Panic! at the Disco fan and loved Brendon Urie so much. Then it came out that Brendon is a massive POS."

Another user hannae19287 said, "He's said the n-word and repeated an anti-trans slur."

Brendon Urie released a statement saying, "It's not OK. Even me telling a story is no excuse using that word, so I am so incredibly, deeply sorry about using that, even in the context I did. There's no excuse, and I am always going to try to improve and get better, but that's still no rationalization for using that word. There's no reason to do it, so, again, I'm sorry."

Chris Harrison

The man who made an entire career out of hosting The Bachelor was revealed to have a racist history and even defended another contestant's racist behaviour. 

"After Chris Harrison, the former host of The Bachelor, appeared to defend a contestant's past racist behavior, it showed his true character. The show is so much better without him!" says Tina.

Kelsey Grammer

The Frasier star may be in the twilight years of his career but decided not to make a quiet exit.

"Kelsey Grammer. Ugh, I can never watch Frasier reruns after he supported Trump," said SaraDiffer

Kat Von D

The makeup mogul was much loved for her edgy take on cosmetics but destroyed all her hard work by revealing she was an anti-vaxxer.

User eleehamm said, "Kat Von D went from the top of the tattoo and cosmetics world to the poster child for anti-vax bullshit with just one Instagram post. Then again, she was always problematic. It just took a while for most people to catch on."

"I used to think she was so cool, and I thought when I could afford to, I would buy all of her makeup. Turned out she’s just the worst and an anti-vaxxer. I am excited that her former brand has no ties to her anymore, so I can buy from them now." says hillaryf4afff6749.

Kat Von D tried to douse the flames by denying the allegations but did not say anything concrete on the matter. 

"My husband and I are NOT anti-vaxxers. Just because we have hesitancies and valid concerns about injecting our baby with specific chemicals and toxins does not mean we are anti-anything."

her publicist claims she has since been vaccinated.

Kevin Spacey

The veteran actor was well known for his roles and lauded for his skills when allegations of being a sexual predator came to light. 

"I adored Kevin Spacey. I loved all of his movies, and he is just such an amazing actor. When all this stuff came out about him being an alleged sexual predator, it broke my heart, and I can never watch any of his movies again." said Nadine Leach.

Marilyn Manson

The man with a unique look and message turned out to be quite the same as other Hollywood predators and joined the very very long line of abusers taken down by the #metoo movement.

User galbargz said, "I used to love Marilyn Manson's music, but it turned out he allegedly severely abused many women."

Danny Masterson

That 70s Show was one of the most beloved shows on TV which is why it was a shock to see that Masterson was an alleged rapist.

User u/DogStilts said, "Hyde was my favorite character on That '70s Show, but now Danny Masterson is a Scientologist with rape allegations, so fuck that noise."

advertisement

Sharon Osbourne

The matron of the Osbourne clan always seemed to be one step ahead of the game until she wasn't.  "I looked up to Sharon Osbourne for being an unflappable businessperson and manager extraordinaire who wasn’t afraid to call out Tommy Lee for being abusive to women. Now I read about her racist behavior and opinions, and they can be horrendous." said u/mangokittykisses.

Tom Cruise

There were very few people that could claim the stardom that Tom Cruise enjoyed only to destroy it all overnight during an Oprah interview

"Tom Cruise went deep into Scientology. The shit he did to his exes is, to me, akin to what Britney Spears is going through." said u/drunkenWINO

Joss Whedon

The man that wrote the shows that defined us turned out to be a horrible human being after allegations of sexual abuse came forward. 

"I loved Joss Whedon's shows and his writing style, and the surface stuff, like his stance on feminism, was worth admiring too. Turns out, he’s at best a complete prick." said u/Zeelthor

"I love his work, but he's an abusive jerk to the women he works with." said u/LadyErynn.

Elon Musk

The man that convinced the world he was one of them turned out to be just another rich daddy's boy exploiting the planet and its people for personal gain. 

User u/RaccKing21 said, "I was an Elon Musk fan. Mass Effect is one of my favorite franchises, and I saw Elon and SpaceX as a way of achieving something like the future in Mass Effect. Later I learned that he exploits the fuck out of his workers. I still like SpaceX, and I think they will probably lead to our future in space exploration, but Elon is on top of my shit list, just like most, if not all, billionaires and millionaires — especially the ones who are garbage to the people who made their companies what they are today."

Jeffree Star

The edgy makeup artist was loved for being outspoken and comfortable with their identity but it all went downhill when their history of racist remarks came forward and they refused to apologise for them. 

u/ado_adonis said, "I used to think Jeffree Star was really cool for being self-made and 'not tolerating the haters,' and his whole message about being yourself was so appealing to me. Then I found out about all the stuff he’s allegedly done, which, combined with how he doesn’t take ANY accountability and shifts the blame around, ruined him for me."

advertisement

James Charles

The uber-famous makeup artist was part of a giant controversy where they were accused of grooming minors.

u/riana_the_raining said, "I used to like James Charles, but any grooming allegations honestly make me sick. The fact that they were a part of it made me so angry."

advertisement

Ellen Degeneres

One of the biggest names in TV in recent years had a mighty fall when it turned out she was rude to her colleagues and was allegedly putting up the wholesome act. 

"I thought Ellen DeGeneres was really wholesome, and watching her show used to make me feel warm and fuzzy, but then I started getting really soul-leeching sort of vibes from her, and now it just feels like she’s using people. I’m sure it’s always been like that. I mean, she’s there to be paid to entertain people, after all." said u/UhnonMonster.
