It goes without saying, that in today’s culture the cult of celebrity seems more important than ever before. With some people willing to do just about anything to acquire any level of fame, the select few that attain that lofty status sometimes develops attitudes of entitlement and derision for the rest of us. Considering most celebs need the public’s support in order to make money, let alone remain in the spotlight, the idea that they would dislike those who make their lifestyle possible seems silly. Yet somehow, there are some celebs that have shown through statements or actions, that they seem to actually hate either their fans or legions of regular folks.
In order for a person to be considered for inclusion on this list the first requirement you need to meet is that you’ve managed to become a well-known entity with a significant fan base. We’re not saying that every reader will necessarily be aware of everyone included, as everyone’s knowledge base is different, but each of them will be known to some. The next criteria someone needed to meet is that there are documented reasons to believe that our entries hold a lot of people, possibly including their fans, in contempt. Whether that comes in the form of actual statements they’ve made or something they’ve done publicly, all that matters is that they’ve shown their true feelings about some. So, without any further ado, let’s get to the list.
15 Christina Aguilera
14 Triple H
For those of you who aren’t wrestling fans, let us introduce you to Triple H, one of the select few people who seem to be in direct line to inherit the keys to the WWE castle when Vince McMahon leaves. Also one of the most beloved figures behind the scenes today because of the influence he has had in creating so many new stars, some may have forgotten that it wasn’t always that way. A former fourteen-time world champion who has headlined WrestleMania multiple times, he has spent a great deal of his career as one of the most pushed people in the company. Despite the fact that he was already on the rise before he became involved with a McMahon, many fans have criticized him a lot, feeling that he is overused and owes it all to his marriage.
13 Ariana Grande
12 Shia LeBeouf
Children born after this young actor’s heyday may find it almost impossible to believe that this eccentric star was once tapped by Hollywood to be one of his generation’s biggest stars. In their defence, there were good reasons to think so at the time, as he’d proven himself capable of leading an indie drama (A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints) as well as several blockbuster films (Transformers trilogy and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). That said, his unusual behaviour in these days seems to have permanently put those days behind us, save for a Robert Downey Jr. style comeback.
11 Robert Pattinson
10 Christian Bale
9 Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy
Remakes, reboots, sequels, prequels and spin-offs. There are many of these types of films that are made and released each year due to the belief that slapping a known brand onto a poster and playing a film in a theater is as close to a sure thing Hollywood can possibly find. There is, however, a lot of baggage that can come along with a once beloved franchise and it is entirely possible that the series' fans will angrily reject your efforts. The latest film to feel that sting, Ghostbusters, got it worse than almost anyone expected.
8 Megan Fox
7 Chris Brown
6 Gwyneth Paltrow
We’re just going to come out and say it; Gwyneth Paltrow needs to just shut up. An actress who has been phenomenal in movies like Seven, The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Royal Tenenbaums, to name just a few, her online exploits have made people dislike her enough that she was named the most hated celebrity in the world in 2013. If you haven’t heard about her writings and words in interviews you may be wondering why, and let us assure you there is a good reason.
5 Justin Bieber
4 CM Punk
2 Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
1 Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar is the only man ever to have won titles in the UFC and WWE, let alone the Heavyweight Championships. He is probably the only man in the WWE who they want on their roster more than he wants to be there. A huge pay-per-view draw who has proven time and time again that the masses will pay to see him do his thing, Brock funnily enough doesn’t like almost any of the people that are happy to spend their money to see him. Having out and out said, “I really don’t like people,” in a public interview, he has no problem admitting he doesn’t “play well” with others. If that is what he says in public, what words does he choose when he is in a private setting? In short, unless you’re one of the few people who he actually cares about on this Earth, Brock Lesnar never ever wants to come into contact with you. It can’t get clearer than that.
