25 Celebs That Didn’t Deserve The Public Hate

Published 4 weeks ago

The public can be harsh and quick to judge when someone seemingly messes up. When public outcry is the result, the person who caused it usually ends up being quite notorious. Whether they deserve it or not becomes a moot point, as the target of public hatred rapidly realises their pariah state in society. 

However, not everyone thinks these outcasts of society are worthy of being shamed anymore. Folks recently shared their opinions about several unfortunate people who became extremely unpopular with the masses but didn’t deserve it. Be it controversial actors and singers to ordinary folks who were vilified, the list goes on as you can see, in the gallery below.

#1 Richard Jewel the guy discovered a bomb, saved countless lives, and was dragged through the mud by the fbi, and the press. When they vindicated him the damage had been done.

#4 Nicholas Cage. So many people hate his acting. He might have picked the wrong movie here and there but there’s far more worse actors around than him these days!

#5 Greta Thunberg

#6 The woman who got burned with the McDonald’s coffee. That was a pretty horrific injury she got and this was not their first rodeo with high temp injuries.

#7 Anita Hill * I still believe her.

#14 Jonny Depp. Amber Heard was unstable from day 1 and they blamed him for ever that happened without hearing her version in person. Just seeing her lying in court proved everyone wrong immediately.

#23 School Teachers

#24 Al Franken deserved a little shade, maybe – but not nearly the amount of backlash that he got. Currently serving politicians have done 100x worse.

#25 MC Hammer. He was called a sell out for doing a (Pepsi, I think) commercial and quickly became unpopular after that. Despite the fact that a bunch of artists made commercials after him and it didn’t matter.

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.
