Everyone has their own opinion on the likability of each celebrity. All celebrity magazines and news publications have their own darlings and baddies among the A-listers, who they alternatively champion and vilify. So how can you work out which celebrities are truly the most universally despised?
Depending on who you ask, the results will be wildly different - 'hate' is subjective and no single celebrity is universally adored. Hence, an opinion poll is the best way to understand the tide of public opinion. The most up-to-date information is sourced here from polling site ranker.com, which compiles constantly updated user votes on the most annoying female celebrities according to fans worldwide.
The celebs on this list are rated as the most obnoxious and disliked in the celebrity world; these are the fifteen women in the entertainment industry that fans love to hate.
10 Nicki Minaj
The divisive Nicki Minaj has a passionately dedicated fan base and an aggressively vocal mass of haters. Many fans support the pop singer and rapper, stating that she is a symbol of female empowerment. Others just cannot understand her music and image; they say that her lyrics make no sense, or are harmful to the female image in music.
Minaj's controversial "Anaconda" song and music video, for instance, had fans divided on her more than ever. The song focuses on having a large butt, which critics have found rude and ignorant. Despite having millions of fans worldwide, she also has many that find her over the top, or hate her outright.
9 Kris Jenner
Kris Jenner has been called many things. A horrible mom, an even worse person. Not everyone holds this opinion, but many among Kris Jenner's audience have voted her as one of the most despised and annoying people in the entertainment industry. After "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" aired, people were able to see her act up in many different ways, not all of them positive.
Rumors also abounded around her talk show, in which she was called cheap, lazy, demanding and a drunk. Whether these rumors are true or not is unclear; Jenner has denied them. Nonetheless, there are more than a few who want to see her leave the spotlight for good.
8 Rosie O'Donnell
Ever since Rosie O'Donnell began her role on "The View," thousands of critics have been knocking at her door. This latest role certainly contributes to her position among the world's most hated women. Not only has she been largely negatively received by viewers, but her fellow cast members have had very little positive to say about her.
Rumors have been circulating that O'Donnell is disrespectful and sullen around the other members of the show. After she started on "The View," ratings have fallen, and the blame for this is centered on O'Donnell. She's been viewed as harsh and unyielding, even untalented.
7 Miley Cyrus
The once tame and well-loved tween icon Miley Cyrus has morphed into one of the most controversial and irritating celebrities on the planet in recent years. She has many adoring fans, and also a large amount of critics. Her party lifestyle has been called out as being dangerous and promoting a negative image. Among the tamer criticisms levelled against her, 'horrible role model' is one. Many reports paint her as selfish, attention-seeking and promiscuous.
Her wardrobe and behavior have made many take against the star; most of this can be traced back to that ill-fated twerking moment. Is she one of those celebs who should just disappear off the stage? Thousands seem to think so.
6 Lindsay Lohan
A lot of fans turned on Lohan after her image began to change. Drug use, arrests and a major attitude problem were all turn offs for the actress's audience. Her image, like her behaviour, may never fully recover. She has been called lazy and unhygienic and she reportedly slept through some of her court appearances.
Lohan's laziness is cited as one of the biggest reasons she failed in the movie industry after a promising start. Her arrogance and seemingly carefree attitude have caused critics to lash out at her, and her work ethic has seen her fired from sets in the past.
5 Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian has been constantly and often unfavorably compared to her sister Kim. Fans of the Kardashian family have noticed that Khloe tries to "imitate" her sister to the point of absurdity. But is she trying to make a name for herself or just feeding off her sister's fame?
Whatever the case, most people seem to dislike Khloe due to her attitude and actions on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." The only point in her favour is that Khloe is, in fact, one of the less hated members of the family currently ranked as America's most annoying.
4 Kourtney Kardashian
No real surprise here; Kourtney Kardashian is one of the most disliked people in Hollywood. Although she's not the most hated sister of the clan, she has received more negative votes than the majority of her family. Critics point to her apparent lack of respect and attitude, as well as her grating role on the show.
Recently, she and her sister Khloe have even been snubbed by their local restaurant: Nick & Toni’s has forbidden any filming to take place there.
"Jersey Shore" is where Snooki first gained fame, and notoriety. Her image on the show was that of a young woman who was dedicated to sloppy partying and bringing home whatever man she could pick up. None of this is despicable in and of itself, but her accompanying loud mouth and shameless attention seeking really grated on Snooki's audience.
Currently, she is a new mother and has seemingly slowed down her pace and focused on creating a more positive image for herself. Despite this, the lasting impact of that hit reality show will likely follow Snooki for the rest of her life. She is still one of the most hated female celebs in Hollywood.
2 Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton is number one on many most hated lists. Critics have pointed out that she acts spoiled, entitled and treats those around her horribly. The releasing of her sex tape only made matters worse. She was born into riches and fame, which does not help her case against those who say she is lazy and useless.
She is one of those celebrities that definitely has more critics than fans. Hilton has also been rumored to treat those close to her like trash. Her long time "friend" Kim Kardashian for instance, has supposedly been talked down to and ridiculed by the heiress.
1 Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian may be the most overexposed female celebrity in the world, so it's no surprise that she's concurrently voted as the most annoying. Her revealing pictures, behavior that borders on the arrogant and stupid, a string of reality TV shows and shameless publicity stunts have all contributed to her negative public image.
Kim has been the brunt of numerous jokes and public attacks, and to top it all off, she is married to Kanye West, who is also one of the most hated people in celeb land.
Recently the star added to the haters' fuel by tweeting a picture about motherhood. It states that being a mother is one of the hardest jobs out there; fans noted that she has maids to do the hard work for her. They tweeted numerous responses about Kim just "not getting it". Does she deserve the hate or is it a bit much?
