30 People Who Have Fooled The World Into Believing They Are Nice

Published 1 month ago

If there is one thing we are becoming increasingly aware of with time, it’s how many people hide their real faces behind a public facade. Today we consider people who are always lauded as a visionary or are quite well-liked by the people around them.

Scroll below to read which names netizens suggested on a Reddit thread sparked by u/Independent_Sun_592 where they asked people to name seemingly kind people who may be monsters in reality. As you read through remember not to judge a book by its cover and always question who people really are under the smiles, makeup and social niceties.

#1 This seems kind of weird as I still don’t understand how anyone can defend them.. but the Kardashians. Everyone thinks they’re “self-made” and have done a lot of charity work, but in reality they are professional scam artists and masters at tax evasion and fraud. There isn’t a good one in the entire bunch.

#2 I’m glad Doctor Phil is finally getting his comeuppance. He’s said and done terrible things to people who needed real help for the sake of viewership and acts like he cares so much. Well it’s obvious he doesn’t.

#3 Personnel in HR Department. They’re not there for you. Don’t bother to report anything or it will backfire on you.

#4 Caitlyn Jenner. During the time she was getting person of the year, she killed someone, and was praised for it.

#5 Brett Favre.

People finally figured it out after the welfare thing but he’s always been scum. I went to USM (his alma mater) as well as my parents who were there at the same time he was, and every story I heard from locals about him was about him blowing off charity events that he was paid for and smacking his girlfriend in public back in his college days. Apparently he used to get his a*s beat by the locals when they’d see it but he was well into his NFL career before that stopped happening publicly. The man is a menace but people hear that South Mississippi accent and assume he’s a nice guy.

Also, just because I feel like there aren’t enough people saying it, f**k Michael Vick and anyone who still let’s him have any kind of public life.

#6 Narendra Modi of India. Despite being praised for economic reform he’s an autocrat at heart.

#7 Every Mega Church senior pastor. I like how they constantly ask for donations and charity and then, if there’s a disaster in their area, rather than help and donate to the relief fund they bar their doors in case anyone ruins their electric blue carpet.

#8 Blows my mind that a good number of Americans still praise Ronald Reagan. He was a gd monster. He dismantled the mental health care system in California when he was governor and that had direct impacts on the growing homeless population.

#9 Mufuggin Gandhi.

When Gandhi’s wife was stricken with pneumonia, British doctors told her husband that a shot of penicillin would heal her; nevertheless, Gandhi refused to have alien medicine injected into her body, and she died.

Soon after, Gandhi caught malaria and, relenting from the standard he applied to his wife, allowed doctors to save his life with quinine. He also allowed British doctors to perform an appendectomy on him, an alien operation if ever there was one.

Also he served on the British side in South Africa and earned a medal for valor.

#10 Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso was an unrelenting bastard to his romantic partners. He once said “for me there are two kinds of women: goddesses and doormats.” And his granddaughter described his treatment of the women in his life by saying: “He submitted them to his animal sexuality, tamed them, bewitched them, ingested them, and crushed them onto his canvas. After he had spent many nights extracting their essence, once they were bled dry, he would dispose of them.”

And that wasn’t hyperbole, two of Picasso’s partners suffered nervous breakdowns due to his emotional abuse. Worse yet his lover Marie-Thèrése Walter and his second wife Jacqueline Roque were driven to [self-harm].

#11 Barbara Walters her interview with Coery Feldman is disgusting. She knew what Cory was saying was true, and she kept questioning him on it.

#12 Jackie Chan. He confesses a lot in his book (without realizing how much of an a*****e he is, I guess?), abusing his toddler son, etc etc.

And THEN on top of that he’s a shill for the CCP. Says s**t like “Chinese people don’t deserve freedom”. He’s from Hong Kong, which is probably a double slap in the face. Even a lot of mainland Chinese people know what the CCP is, but they can’t necessarily escape. He’s an international star, and decides to say what he does.

#13 Tom Cruise gives millions to an aggressive cult that destroys families.

#14 Charles Taze Russell, founder of the Jehovah’s Witness. I grew up in that cult and so many people I knew died from not getting blood transfusions.

#15 John Lennon sang about peace and love and then went home and beat his wife and kid.

#16 Mark Wahlberg. More recently, he’s been claiming that Hollywood is persecuting him for being a Christian, which is why he’s decided to move his kids to Nevada. It’s pretty ironic for the guy who threw rocks at Black children and beat up Vietnamese people wants to talk about being unfairly targeted.

#17 Lame answer, but my mother. She is known by a lot of people in town because she’s a teacher and is part of the theater scene, and people love her.

Little do they know that behind closed doors she abuses the s**t out of her children. I ran away when I was 17 because I couldn’t take it, and despite giving the police a s**t ton of proof of what was happening, they couldn’t believe that she was capable of any of that and forced me to go back. Even after kicking me out a few months later while I was still a minor, almost no one thought she did anything wrong. The nicest people hide the darkest s**t

ETA okay this was not what I was expecting. I’m reading all of your comments, and wow. I am so sorry that so many of us have dealt with this. I promise you it does get better over time

As for me, I am doing better. The 11th is three years since cutting her off, and while my life is still really hard, it’s the happiest I’ve ever been.

#18 Literally every judge from Sharktank. They scam so many people out of so much money it’s f*****g deplorable.

#19 Oprah Winfrey. She has platformed so many terrible humans, scam artists, and snake oil salesmen it’s unbelievable.

#20 Christopher Columbus.

Quick reminder, the imperialist and slave-holding nation of Spain sent him to prison once he got back from the new world because his monstrous brutality towards his slaves was too much even for them.

#22 It’s finally coming out, but Drake. I’m 30. I can’t imagine wanting to talk to someone underage all the time. I have nothing in common with them, I feel like they’d get annoying (not their faults but they’re young and immature). I mean if I had family that young maybe. But just random teenagers is so strange

#23 Lizzo. I loved her song “boys” because it was literally just her singing about how she thought dudes were cool, and she doesn’t discriminate over size, height, demographic. She seemed cool, and then she turned out to be an a**hole who judged other WOMAN for their size and its like….Lizzo is fat af how can she tell act like that?

#24 Lyndon B. Johnson, I find it hard to believe he is being lionized by the descendants of the people who hated him so much. He was responsible for the deaths of 55,000 Americans and millions in SE Asia, he looked us in the eye and lied about the Gulf of Tonkin incident so he could widen the war to fatten his friends.

Now people say “oh but his domestic policy, he gave us Medicare and Headstart”, how cheaply he bought you out, he was a war criminal who killed a lot of my friends.

#25 Steve Jobs was a deadbeat dad, a spoiled child masquerading as an adult, a slave labor monster, and a borderline idiot.

#26 Chris Brown.

His fame is particularly disturbing to me because over the years since his attacks on Rihanna, he has been involved in numerous altercations, charged with multiple counts of abuse, holding women hostage, sexual assault and armed standoffs with the police. It’s clear he has not evolved or matured as a person and presents a significant threat to many people. The fact he still gets support and is collaborating with artists is very disheartening.
I’m in favour of allowing grace for those who have mended their ways, but this individual has not stopped hurting and endangering people, almost exclusively women and the fact he’s still seen as a sought after artist is confusing to me.

#27 Ellen DeGeneres. She opened up about how she hated the TV personality outside of the show and hated being around fans who would stop her to do something silly.

#28 Jared Leto. For someone who does a month long spirit journey in the wilderness each year, he’s a huge piece of s**t.

#29 I always knew Will Smith had horrible vibes even before “the slap”. Not as bad as others on this list but he seems like a prick.

#30 The Rock/Dwayne Johnson.

I think stuff is just starting to come out since he’s always been super controlling of his public image, but it seems like the guy is a complete and total sociopath.

Edit: I didn’t expect this to blow up. Here’s an article detailing how him and his team have crafted his public image

People have also started to speak up about his bad behavior on set, being late all the time and rude to crew members.

There was the Hawaii b******t with Oprah. There was his handling of Black Adam bombing – also reports of bad onset behavior and mistreatment of others.

“Monster” might be a stretch, but the guy is definitely an a*****e and people are just now finding out. Dude is fake as fake gets.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
