There are a lot of great qualities that people have that make others like and appreciate them. Some famous and well-known people come under more careful scrutiny when it comes to proper behavior as they are very often expected to show how nice and polite they are behind the cameras, how they treat others, and how compliant they are. Having this in mind, a Reddit user called @bpm918 was curious to find out some examples of such people. The user asked folks online to reveal “who is the most universally liked person in the world” in their mind.

The question that received more than 4k upvotes soon was filled with various answers. What was interesting to notice is that the names mentioned the most included actor Keanu Reeves, star legend Betty White, and singer and actor Dolly Parton.

Do you agree with the list? Who do you think is the world’s most universally liked person that wasn’t mentioned in the list? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments down below!

Theres a story to this. The Russian command received an alert that the U.S. has launched several nuclear misses to the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Instead of “Turning the key” he waited, and waited, and waited, nothing happened. It was soon found out that there was an error in the system and that it has falsely received an alert. Think about this for a minute. He must have had needed a new change of pants. But he also could have made this world a barren wasteland. This man should be recognized everywhere.

I stopped reading every publication that used the headline "Crack Panther" he was dying at the time although most didn't know it. There was never any reports of him being involved in drugs and the media should have done more investigation rather than assuming he was an addict.

Unpopular opinion: as someone who worked in the wildlife business in Africa, all I can say is that while his enthusiasm for animals was unmatched, he was repeatedly reckless in the way he approached and handled animals. While his death was tragic, it could easily have been avoided if he had kept the practice of treating wild animals with respect, and not crowding them, baiting them and interfering with them.

She had a heck of a lot of haters when she was still alive, for "ruining the royal reputation", being "promiscuous" and opinionated. Royalists were scandalised by her actions, saw her as the sole villain in a disastrous marriage and had no empathy for her. After she passed away
people mostly started to drop the vitriol and dramatic changes to culture around the treatment of women has put a more empathetic light on the memory of her.

She did a lot of good. And she didn't deserved what happened to her. But i don't like how people started hate Camilla after her death. Camilla never did anything loud, scandalous for revenge or attention seeking when Charles didn't marry her, because she was unsuitable for the heir of the throne. I am glad she finally married a man she loved for so long.

Not sure how this isn't a top vote. Even for people that don't like his movies or acting in particular, I'd say they're generally aware of all the charity and stuff he gives away to deserving people, and has been completely scandal free as far as I know. Beyond that, he is always smiling and speaks in a way that people enjoy listening to, both his voice and manner of communicating. Highly likeable guy.

I worked as an extra on a movie set, and the first thing we were told "Don't look at DW. Don't speak to DW. Don't make eye contact with DW" I was prepared to dislike him, but we were a gospel choir, led by our Aunt Peg. Well, DW ended up spending time with her and enjoying the gospel music. It was beyond awesome.
