Out of all types of cringe-worthy material, the "badass guy/girl" trope is one of the worst. Some people really feel the need to let the world know how much of a badass they are as they use guns/drugs/have tattoos/are anti-liberal or are just plain mean.

Prepare for some cringing, then scroll down below and leave a vote for those that made you laugh (or cringe).
