Online Community Members Share Why They Lost All Their Admiration Towards These 30 Celebrities
It's fascinating how most of us are somewhat acclimated to the fact that there are some terrible people out there, but when it comes to famous personalities, whether that would be talk show hosts or full-on Hollywood actors, our judgement gets a little clouded. Who can blame us – it's hard to imagine celebrities living a morally incorrect life when their life seems to be so flawless. We're used to seeing them on big screens, where no mistakes are allowed, so we automatically assume they could do no wrong.
What doesn't help is their ability to have any potential scandal go away. Odd things they might've done get proclaimed as rumors, and the fans continue praising their favorites for their endless talent.
However, this Reddit user decided to dive into the celebrity drama world and asked fellow users to reveal why they've happened to lose all their respect for a well-known personality. The post received almost 30K upvotes and over 24K comments worth of names.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Oprah Winfrey yet. Not only did she give a major platform to Dr. Oz & Dr. Phil, she also was good friends with Harvey Weinstein and kept her mouth shut about him, then went on to give a pro-Me-Too speech at the Oscars after he was arrested and got thunderous applause.
Amber Heard - beat on Johnny Depp and then tried to say he beat her, screwing with his career.
After watching Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, any celebrity involved with the Scientology church is pretty off-putting.
Ellen DeGeneres, she made Taylor Swift cry and practically bullied her on live TV, outted Mariah Carey’s pregnancy, need I go on? She treats her guests like trash.
I recently found out about Eric Clapton basically bankrupting a little old widow (over 5k in legal fees) for her attempting to sell her late husband's old bootleg DVD of one of his old concerts for $11 online.
F**k that guy.
Gwyneth Paltrow and her sh**ty Goop products that are bad for you.
Kylie Jenner for not paying her factory workers at all.
Travis Scott, he was a bystander to the deaths of a bunch of his own fans. I just can’t support someone that apathetic to the deaths of his own supporters.
Leonardo DiCaprio, as he jets around on superyachts(where he literally is currently), which uses like 20 gallons per mile, and private jets, etc. all while talking to the UN and Netflix about climate change.
The guy is a self-centred a**hole. Had an entire show around him and was thrown out after turning on everyone, then some other network just gave him a vehicle show where he barely showed any work ethic and when his co-star called him out on that, he had HER fired! Stop rewarding people for being a**holes!
Now I realize he just uses sick minded people for his own profit. He brought the creator of Bumfights on the show and kicked him off after showing up dressed as Dr. Phil. The guy said Dr. Phil and him did the exact same thing, Phil just hid it better. After seeing that clip, I have no respect for Dr Phil.
Wendy Williams she is just an ugly person on the inside and in general. She has threatened and belittled staff, farted on national TV and blamed a chair. She outed Method Man's wife for having cancer just to get ratings. Once she started catching heat now she's claiming she may have dementia or mental disorders and that's what caused her to do all the stuff she did. Total cop out those are just a few things.
Jared Leto, 50 year old guy that preys on teenagers. What's weird is everyone knows, jokes about it, but the guy still books work.
Demi Lovato - constantly playing the victim card, is a little too delusional and don’t get me started on the frozen yogurt place fiasco.
He met his ex-wife when she was sixteen (and declared he was going to marry her right then) and then put her on birth control at nineteen after they had “a really deep friendship” (yeah right) for three years. He later made her do an interview a week after their son died, threw that son’s ashes away, refused to let her get medical care for a miscarriage, and dumped her by the time she was twenty four. I love the man’s music, but I wish people would talk more about the hell that he put Mayte Garcia through.
My brother is a d-tier actor in Australia. Has worked with Rebel Wilson a fair bit. Said she’s the most unpleasant person he’s ever encountered. Makes everyone treat her like an absolute diva and runs through assistants like Epstein through massages. I didn’t have an opinion about her before he told me but it’s not an uncommon sentiment in the acting world.
She had a body double for a film they were both in. She lost a bunch of weight before filming and became really opinionated about having somebody who accurately represented her idea of her body. She finally settled on somebody (this is usually the role of the casting crew based on your height and weight but she insisted she had final say). The body double showed up on set and Rebel decided the woman had put on weight between casting and filming. She grabbed the poor woman’s hips and stomach on the set and yelled at the casting crew for bringing “a hippopotamus on set” to represent her.
I just today found out about the 2009 Polanski petition and the 100 celebrities that signed it - so all of them.
Nick Cannon. 4 kids by 3 different women in 6 months. Like seriously dude, wrap it up.
Chrissy Teigen - was an advocate for being kind to people online and then had been cyber bullying Courtney Stodden amongst others.
The stories coming out about Justin Timberlake being a flat out d***head and literally spitting on women have really changed my opinion of him.
Drake. The ghostwriting. The supposed grooming of the Stranger Things girl. How he pretty much shunned his child and then would always talk about his dad leaving him and his mom. He also has gotten complacent with his music. He's like the personification of Pop Hop now. He kind of just style jacks whatever is popular rn instead of having his own style.
Shia LaBeouf, I was one of the holdouts who argued he was misunderstood as an artist and a person. Soon as the FKA Twigs story came out I couldn’t bring myself to continue being a fan. Dude needs help and if we’re being real, probably needs to do time.
Nicki Minaj because she seems to align herself with sexually violent people.
I used to be a real big fan of him and his old Gavin and Stacy stuff and I even liked the lesbian vampire movie too even though a lot of people hated it. And then the stories of how he treats people even his own family started to roll out and I'm like f**k this guy.
I got pretty into the TV show Glee in 2020 and I didn't know most of the cast beforehand, so It's not like I was a fan of anyone, but after I heard about Lea Michele's ugly behavior I was truly appalled. I don't know how anyone can support her.
In a nutshell, she disrespected a ton of people she have worked with, ever since she was a little girl. She threatened to fire people, belittled the staff, called them cockroaches, told a coworker she would "sh*t in her wig" and other nasty things. Shame, since she's a talented singer.
He left his wife he always claimed to love so much for the mistress that he got pregnant while still married to his wife. And she wasn't the only woman he had cheated on her with.
Armie Hammer. I don’t agree with cannibalism!
Melissa Gilbert. My mother loved her in the 70s so one year I got her Gilbert’s cookbook and surprised mom by taking her to a book signing near where we live in the Midwest.
She was over the moon excited to meet her. We finally get up to the table and Ms. Gilbert was rude to my mother, and hurried her through. Mom was crushed. I now will not watch anything with her in it. My mind goes back to the rude entitled woman she was.
Chris Pratt. Making an Instagram post praising your new wife for “having a healthy child” when your ex-wife had major health issues delivering your other child is such a sc*mbag move.
