Celebrities We Lost Respect For In 2013

December 31, 2013 ‐ By Meg Butler

It’s that time of year again: time to look at the celebrities whose shenanigans and foolery went so far, we’ll never look at them the same way again. Here’s a list of 15 famous folks we lost respect for in 2013 and who we hope can get their ish together in 2014.

Celebrities We Lost Respect For

Don Lemon

Touré isn’t the only one done with Don Lemon. He lost all of his coming-out-of-the-closet cool points when he endorsed Stop and Frisk, suggested that black folks could succeed if they’d just pull up their pants, and said Bill O’Reilly “doesn’t go far enough” in his criticism of black culture.

    You mean you once had respect for these people?

  • Walter28

    Americans supposedly admire non-conformists, like their own Founding Fathers, for example, but whenever someone challenges the status-quo, they “lose respect” for them. Sheeple. God forbid someone voices an opinion that’s not echoed by the brain-dead masses. “How dare you! We don’t think. We parrot”.

  • Ted Bouchard

    The writer seems to have a lot of self esteem issue. the number of blacks on this list simply because they dared to say something negative about blacks is eye popping. When whites criticice whites not too many people accuse them of being ‘race betrayers’. Then again, the horrioble disgusting phrase ‘uncle tom’ was created for a reason. And, hitting someone because they took part in some stupid dance craze is pathetic and evil.

  • vinwire

    Oh Madame, can you please kiss my white behind?

  • Bobby Brown

    Damn…you all have a real problem with skin color. Funny…a race of people that prefers not to live with its own kind… NOW thats a rare bird….

  • Toni Eka

    this writer is not focused at all. you mean you actually had respect for kanye west at some point in your pathetic life. i feel for you. kims popularity is what is getting him named.

  • Strandwolf

    I believe that Jeantel was 19, not 17. Just a point of information. Didn’t she plant in Martin’s mind the possibility that Zimmerman was a gay cruising for sex? Which may have infuriated Martin, inducing him to track down Zimmerman who was returning to await the arrival of police at his vehicle? So what happened may have come down to self-defence, a conclusion which the jury arrived at. Why hasn’t AG Holder gone after Zimmerman if Martin’s civil rights were violated?

  • Shifty Fellers

    LoLo’s right Trayvon wasn’t murdered, I’m losing respect for Meg Butler.

  • brad

    I like how you put “we” as if you represent the entire black community.

  • K-La abdul kayne

    never respected most of them in the first place. Celebs…..flavor of the week, hype and bullshit that really contribute nothing to society. Like as if any of these pathetic excuse for celebs matter.

  • Danny

    It’s only murder if you are convicted, then it’s self defense.


    WTF is Don Lemon?

  • Wurl Stah King

    Lolo says alot of dumb stuff

  • Crafty

    Didn’t we forget the most important let down of the year?…..Yes Justin Beiber….oh wait I guess you have to be someone before you can let anyone down.

  • Guy

    Sheryl Underwood set the black race back by saying “nappy?” Author of article = Ignorant fool

  • Alan Blanes

    Bravo for Don Lemon – his objectivity and willingness to identify obvious causes of racial contempt needs to be applauded. If anyone suggests that wearing atrocious sloppy falling off pants is to be defended, is failing to face facts.

  • Work 4 Me

    Respect your Arse…

  • Targitty

    Don your Arse…

  • Michael Herrera

    don’t know half the people on the list and the other half i’m cool with

  • mrslynndavis

    i agree about Kirk and no i don’t have your back about Porsha

  • mrslynndavis

    i must agree with you guys i am done with lil’ mo myself, she’s a turn coat also shame!!

  • mrslynndavis

    maybe you need to check some of your stories because that is not what happened in the case with Dietrick Haddon, his wife cheated on him first with Issac Carree and he turned to a friend for comfort and healing and she just happened to be a ex-girlfriend from back in the day and a relationship formed from it. now he is wrong for not waiting until he got divorced, to move on in another relationship but place the blame where it belongs and leave that man alone! CHECK YOUR SOURCES SWEETHEART, THIS IS HOW RUMORS GET STARTED AND CIRCULATED, NOT COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Geniga Asgaye

    I didn’t lose respect for Paula Deen. She answered truthfully that she had used the N word in the past… which of course is true… just like everybody else has. The allegations against her were dismissed. Yet she still lost her billion dollar production. Seems like she got a raw deal.

  • jack smith

    whoever respects celebrities in the first place is the most complete of fools, and no doubt voted for the fresh prince of DC

  • missmack

    still talking about paula deen who used a slur 30 years ago regarding someone who held a gun to her head I see. Dilutes the issue. Anyone would have done the same.

  • somewhere

    the writer’s perception/reason for loss of respect is ignorant. sounds like a bigot (manipulate much?) and forgets… as others have stated: Madonna – and then too each and everyone who followed the _____ from hell: JLo, Beyoncé, Nikki, Lady Gagga, Brittany, Katie Perry it goes on and – there aren’t many who have real talent and enough respect to think outside themselves to be even creative anymore… and all the males in this same class of “don’t got not talent, but I’m going to shove it down your throats with a hell of a lot of hype (and a machine that makes my voice sound okay)” – and then all the “take a peak” to get me attention actors/actresses/reality celebs. The lack of respect all of them show to the rest of the world… taking money/fame/allow themselves to be used by a corporate structure that decided to take over the entertainment industry as cheaply as they could (evident by the performers who get all the attention today). And p.s. – there isn’t anyone up there that is any “sexier” than a homeless streetwalker – they just have wardrobe assistants and fuzzy photographs to hide who they really are.

  • Storm

    Don’t you have to respect someone before you can lose respect for them? Most of these people were a joke from jump.

  • disqus_lClpzOjl2u

    why are all these celebrities black… or in racially fuelled shaming campaigns..oh and also… why did they ever have respect?… not like any of them were upstanding citizens

  • Mkdl

    I have no clue who 99% of these “celebrities” are.

  • David W Johnson

    Nothing said about Madonna calling her son the N word, oh I get it its only wrong when old white conservatives use the word, guess who I just lost all respect for?

  • ahkang

    Pretty comical article. Starting with long-time entertainers like O’Reilly and Limbaugh being described as “white leaders.” Extending to trying to sound sincere when picking at very low lying fruit, and “losing respect” for people who have different opinions.

  • Pablo

    I didn’t realize until I was on like the ninth person that this is a black website lol i have only heard of like 4 of these people. I was like, “Why did we only lose respect for random black celebrities and ..paula dean… wait.. ads all have only black people except a white baby moma… (lightbulb!) its a black website.”

  • Sammy

    What up wit men like kirk making that obscene jester with the fingers. we know what 2 in the goo and one in the poo mean.

  • Sammy

    Hey Lil mo, there is NO P in SUMTER!

  • Sammy

    OK, hopefully this will be the last time I have to say this; trayvon martin was NOT murdered, he was killed when the person he decided to attack from behind shot him in self defense.


    Don Lemon told you.

  • Bill Lackland

    The list goes on, even much prior to 2013. This includes many who never regained any kind of respect. M.J. is one for example. Many never will, as long as they live.

  • Brennon

    Paula Deen said it over 30 years ago and has apologized so many times for it, get over it. News flash, whether you like it or not, white people especially younger ones use that word all the time.

  • Craig Moreland

    Maybe your opinion about them, really doesn’t matter to them?

  • Vaughan Hamilton

    paula did no different than any other black person making slurs against whites. I have to constantly hear how bad my people are and how racist and imperialistic and pasty and cruel and insensitive and etc etc etc–Please, get real political correctness is an evil and we are drowning in it–white people are full of shit-and so are black people and so are chinese, and arabs -we know this and everyone reading says the darndest things in the privacy of their homes–this does not make you better than someone that saiid it publically

  • Nev Dread

    yep i agree there is really no issues with these celebs, it looks like white wash rubbish to me.

  • Zack Kyran

    I don’t see why hate Lolo Jones that girl was a ridiculous witness. Baffles me that they put her up on stand. I really think she had a very negative affect on jury.

  • Jack Hammer

    Gosh, most of these scumbags are black ! Whus up wid dat?

  • Kevin Walters

    What I find incredible is that someone at one time found “Lil Wayne” respectful there hasn’t been a bigger POS since O.J.

  • Ryan

    Whoever wrote this article needs to get a life… I guess nobody can have an opinion in the world today… Pathetic. A lot of these people I actually agree with.

  • fredhill

    Your use of the English language points out your ignorance.

  • PRenaud

    Hey what about Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and other celebrities who voluntarily support an evil, heartless criminal organization like $cientology, the thriving cult of greed and power… it is accused of fraud, assault, extortion, child labor, forced labor, forced abortions, kidnapping, defamation, invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress, racketeering, false imprisonment, etc. etc. So many full proof testimonies and videos from ex-members and ex-members of the executives all over the web speaking out on this organization’s BS.

  • NobodySpecial

    Well, since GZ was exonerated of any murder charges then stating that TM was murdered and not killed is slander. This writer needs to revisit journalism school.

  • DrCaligari

    I’m getting sick and tired of click-bait. It’s not worth my time to click on “Next” over and over and wait for a new page to load. That’s just a stupid waste of effort. You should create the option to have all these on a single page.

  • cindymc

    you mean to tell me that somebody had respect for these people to begin with??

  • Kathy Dawone Pierce

    I love the word WE? How dare the person who wrote this presume they have the right to decided who “WE” do or do not respect. According to the writer (Meg Butler, some nobody) most of those that she states “WE” have lost respect for was for people having opinions? I have lost respect for this person who presumes to know who “WE” have lost respect for…Meg Butler. Give me a break.

  • factsonly

    lol Kanye has no problems selling out stadiums… He had one of the highest grossing tours and hasn’t even started his overseas leg yet. #FACTSONLY

  • IamPurdy

    How can Underwood knock a mother for saving her babies hair? This self hater broad has been told all her life that everything about her is U.G.L.Y, and she just cannot believe that anyone would value anything that would remind her of blackness. even old broads need to be educated in some form

  • Yumyum

    It’s funny. Your definition of ‘celebrity’ is the same as mine for ‘people i’ve never heard of’.


    The Media & Hollyweird is 95 % Infested with Homosexuals, so of course they are gonna Attack n try to BULLY anyone who refuses to drink their Filthy Gay-Tor-Aide , it just shows how Pathetic n Predictable Homosexuals are, they love to spout off about Tolerance , BUT, if you don’t Agree with their Chosen Lifestyle they really become extremely IN-TOLERANT !!!! Total Hypocrites

    • somewhere

      it’s all the government grant/funded baby formula they’re giving to welfare recipients and selling in the stores… all GMO soy and corn syrup – …too much lab created estrogen/other stuff from birth! by the time kids are five they don’t know what sex they’re suppose to be and lowers IQs. They’re so addicted to the crap, a lifetime of human altering food… you got a mess. Then put them on stage and promote this as entertainment to take away values from all the “fans.” Now… keep doing same, another generation they’ll be even less tolerant, more neurotic and so feeble (even more than they are now) they’ll be spewing even more hatred to anyone in disagreement. It’s sad.


    I love Stacey Dash.


      She did nothing wrong, if having your own OPINION is wrong , this world has really gone to S * * T

  • wmhoad

    Lolo Jones’ sin seems really mild.

  • wmhoad

    For a gay guy, Don Lemon seems to have am amount of common sense sorely needed among “celebrities”


    Instead of Losing Respect, maybe this Magazine needs to do some Self-Reflection instead of Playing the Race Card every single time. Its Time for Black People to Cut-the Crap and take control of their situation instead of being a willing victim !!! From a Black Man , Former Black Panther and a Black Man who refuses to be De-Humanized and made a Pawn of the System !!!

  • drdoug99

    One other thing: I happen to see a black man who came ion to apply for a job. He had on dirty work shoes, ones of which was untied. His blue jeans were filthy, he had on a dirty white t-shirt under another shirt which was unbuttoned. His shirttail was out (one side) and he smelled like stale beer. AND HE WAS APPLYING FOR A JOB THAT WOULD PUT HIM IN A SERVICE POSITION WITH HOSPITAL PATIENTS!

  • drdoug99

    Let me see if I understand this: You lost respect for this guy for speaking the truth. I used to work in a small city in the Midwest (12,000) that was 95% black and I can tell you stories that would, at the least, curl your hair. The black society was pathological and, left to its own devices it would consume itself within 18 months. There used to be 1 federal or state program for every 400 people and yet the city has still been in receivership for the past 3 – 4 years.

  • ODWms

    “[Stacy Dash] can be conservative if she wants to…”
    Stop lying. Liberal-agenda-brainwashed folks hate anyone just for being conservative, in and of itself. Especially any black person who happens to not follow the liberal status quo.

  • http://yahoo.com paris

    stacey had balls to go off the plantation, so she is hated by the average low education blacks. too bad, deal with it, we are out here and we’re gonna leave all you slaves in the dust. nick cannon is a total embarrassment these days. i dont like him anymore

    cyrus butt is basically just the split down her back. as for thicke, what did black people see in him? they think he is soulful? lol. seems blacks can be led to believe almost anything

  • http://yahoo.com paris

    this for lil wayne aka the virus. when he wears his panties all out like that, alot of gay men in the world are happy and getting a good look at his goods. does that make lil wayne and others on the down low. sending signals to gay men to look at what they have to offer

  • http://yahoo.com paris

    never heard of lil mo

  • http://yahoo.com paris

    asap rocky thinks hes up there as far as his career is concerned. he is still on the D list and he makes ugly racial comment like that. hope he has alot of white fans. i doubt it, but hes gonna need them and every one in new york to support his career. he cant carry an album all by himself. unless hes on a record with other people, no ones gonna listen to him. good!!!

    I only knew 4 of them. Is this what passes for celebrity these days?

  • whocares

    Does Sheryl Underwood actually think she’s attractive sitting up looking like a big swoll plop of green/brown mucus covered in weave and war paint? She’s an idiot.

  • pika12

    You lost respect for Pebbles based on TLC’s perspective of what happened? We are not privy to the details and can’t possibly know what actually happened behind the scenes in that situation. I would not be surprised if Pebbles was just the middle man (or woman in this case) and there were probably male executives above her who really lined their pockets off of TLC’s name. TLC chose to expose or point the finger of blame at Pebbles but who else could/should they really have exposed?

  • ConservativeCreole

    How could she have been his ‘jump off’ when he wasn’t married to his children’s mother? Let’s keep it real. His children’s mother allowed herself to become the ‘jump off’ when she laid with him after she found out he married his protege.

  • gil gam

    nothing wrong with pulling up your pants

  • Sasha~Fierce1!


  • BigDik

    asap is right..

  • foot814

    I can’t lose respect for many of these people because I never had it. all of these people are entertainers. their only role in our lives is too entertain us for a moment. if we want thought provoking leadership and moral guidance only a shallow minded fool would look to these modern minstrels.

  • Elaine E Phinn

    Let’s hope Don Lemon will not have to deal with stop and frisk for any reason whatsoever, and although i do not support men wearing their pants below their waist, what does that have to do with being successful? Don Lemon is in a class by himself, oh well!


    Most of these people are C-list, at best.

  • sean

    who are most of these people?

  • yousuckin2014

    EPIC FAIL, other races didn’t do stupid crap in 2013? Its this type of propaganda that perpetuates stereotypes of the races when you focus on one,Ive lost respect for you in 2014, put that on your pages!

    • NE1BUTU

      There are several white people on this list. It’s a primarily black site, so that’s where most of the focus is going to be.



    • NE1BUTU

      You need to switch to decaf. Just so you know, a republican is not in the White House. Obama has pushed through the policies that he wanted to.

      It’s time to get a job.

      • Clarisse73

        Just so YOU know, this Congress and the last, are known as the “Do Nothing” Congress for a reason.

  • weareallpeopleandsaydumbthings

    Wow. You are just a spiteful, black woman that seems to be trapped in the 60′s. Please change the title to people YOU lost respect for because most of these celebs didn’t really say anything offensive or wrong. It is people like you that keep racism going in this country, not these celebrities. I’ve never seen such bottled up hate against people in at least a decade. Hell, half the people you targeted are barely young adults and you twisted their words to make it sound ignorant. There are 6 people on this list that are serious role models for young black youths and you slander them for no reason. In other words, this is the first article I’ve read by you, and it will be the last. You are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Seriously, how much hate must you have in your heart to publish something like this. I’m sad that I’m even adding to your income by reading this article and posting

  • Clarisse73

    I’ll say this, CCBanks. If your miserable behind happened to be a celebrity, YOU’D be on this list. Hmmm. Maybe you can be on the list of insignificant and unknown losers. How would that be?

  • Doug McEvoy

    I’m sorry but doesn’t the headline say “celebrities” ? Never heard of most of these people.

  • Jake

    Another good title for this would be “People we didn’t know were celebrities.”

  • CCBanks

    I LOST RESPECT FOR THIS WEBSITE. You seem to uplift the dumbest ni66as on earth.

  • Yaahaha

    Looks like the speech police in the leftist looney club are out in full bloom at MN. Most of your list are the best people in the biz– they just don’t roll with your agenda.

  • Lockmazter

    Trayvon was NOT murdered. The jury said so! Get over it, libtards!

    • Clarisse73

      And the jury said OJ was NOT guilty. So what’s your point?

  • madfam004

    Who are these jerks anyway?

  • disqus_qKVofJNoeH

    Bad news kids, turns out trayvon wasn’t murdered at all.
    There was a trial and verdict. Ask a non-racist adult for details.

  • We the SHEEPle

    Who determined that (The Vast Majority), We the SHEEPle are concerned with any of these Creatures?

  • ConcentrHated

    I didn’t lose any respect for ½ of these people, Top 10 lists are entertaining and sometimes funny..this is just tabloid caliber BS. Who the F** cares about someone elses personal life, who wastes their time choosing to have respect for people who they’ll never meet and who most likely haven’t DONE anything respectable.

  • SanMarie Kirk

    Listen people this not how that happened. Sad to say his wife cheated on him with another gospel singer. He found out and left. Yes, he did meet his new wife at a time he needed a friend.I don’t know who wrote this article but his wife and he was having problems for a long time. So, if you wasn’t living side by side with them in their home how in the heck you know the D.

  • Max Blood

    i didnt lose respect for paula deen..why should i? cuz she said a racist slur when blacks say it openly on tv or w/e and nothing happens? but a white person says 1 thing ad they lose everything? ya much respect 2 her and she didnt deserve all this bs over it

  • SsAbariotes

    I’ll take your word for it if you say these people are Celebrities. I have no idea who they are, and I don’t want to know either.

  • unpleasantfacts478

    A few of these are petty. Has Jay-Z made these lists yet? I’ll be expecting him in 2014 for sure.

  • Cheryl

    Never had any respect for them in the first place.

  • empress123

    Yep and most of the people on the list are sellouts!

  • crystal

    ;D this is RETARDED

  • booboo

    I have a great amount of respect for Stacy Dash. She does not allow herself to be a pawn for the liberal elites. But I guess she is not “black” enough to stay on the Democrat planation.

    • Clarisse73

      No, Stacy Dash simply decides to make an a$% of herself all on her own. She better get busy on a career plan, though. Once her looks are gone, no one will pay her any attention no matter how foolish she acts.

  • Paul Glenn

    As long as we are losing respect for people, please tell me we are losing respect for most rap artists…I have been listening to rap for the better part of thirty years and I have to admit that today’s rap and rappers are not bringing it…most of them are sellouts and phonies…the lyrical content of the average rap song is nothing but garbage recorded for the masses…really…what is the true message of a song by Rick Ross? or a song by Lil Wayne? Don Lemon is not an embarrassment, what is more embarrassing is the fact black people will not call out their own, murderers in Chicago, anti-intellectual culture and female lack of respect of self…

    • Clarisse73

      It’s not much of a compliment if she expects her “hint” to damage his reputation. Doofus.

    • NE1BUTU

      Because it wasn’t intended as a compliment. Do you think Anderson Cooper would appreciate it if someone spread rumors that he were straight, and that he was just pretending to be gay? No he wouldn’t.

    Who cares if he’s gay? I don’t

  • Pendy1

    Add junkie Philip Seymour Hoffman

    • Clarisse73

      If you stopped having respect for Philip Seymour Hoffman because of his manner of death, your respect wasn’t worth much in the first place..

      • Pendy1

        Thanks so much for deciding for me whom I should respect, addicts apparently being at the top of the list.

        • Clarisse73

          Where in my post did I point out specific people you need to respect? YOU brought up Philip Seymour Hoffman. I simply stated that if his death by overdose was enough to earn your contempt, you never respected him in the first place. But that’s okay. Mr Seymour will always be known as an excellent and remarkable actor. And you? Who cares?

  • Jack_Kennedy

    to bad that the white folk are not ALLOWED to get away with the racist sheeet that goes on with the mooks on this site

    • Clarisse73

      Who uses the word “mook” anyway? Are you Archie Bunker?

  • Sophie

    No mention on Jay Z’s sexualing Ike and Tina’s violent relationship though? I wonder if it’s because the author didn’t know or because everyone idolizes Jay & Bey smh

  • anonymous

    Justin Beiber should have been on this list except for the fact that he had no respect.

      i knew there was a reason he wasnt on here, because he never had respect from people.

      He was on a downward spiral long before 2013.

    You only lost respect for Kanye in 2013??? I lost respect for him YEARS ago! What a douche!

    I dont get why anyone is mad at Robin Thick for the sample when Parrell was the producer of the track????? Because it doesn’t promote Black/white drama. C’mon son!!

  • Nisha L

    He didn’t cheat on his wife. She cheated on him, he didn’t start dealing with his preachers of LA Costar until after his divorce. He married his Co-star and they have 2 children. Now if he showed his weenus…….idk about that and it wouldn’t be becoming of a man of God.

  • cinna

    Portia didnt start those gay rumors about kordell…. the rumor that he was gay has followed him throughout his career. even one of his former team mates wrote in a book (he was writng about his own life story) that the team felt kordell was gay because of certain things that ocurred and they kept hearing about him and other men…. kordell held a meeting in the locker room claiming he wasn’t gay and that he has a bunch of women. right before he married portia it was said he was caught in a parked car in the park having sex with a man and the police let him go with no ticket….of course he denied the police caught him. then all of a sudden he dated and quickly married portia which some folks was saying was a front. so as i said portia didnt start “spreading gay rumors” about him because of the divorce. she in fact denied and defended kordell all while they were married which i belive was fake and so when they were divorcing she just quit lying. and do i beleive he has hit her …umm yes mainly because he is so controlling. usually physical violence accompanies this kind of behavior.

  • Brooklyn MaydMe

    Ummm….didn’t Deitrick Haddon’s wife cheat on him with Isaac Caree??!! I think someone should do a little more research before placing blame.

  • Meandmybish

    These celebs need pr people on hand at all times to control their mouths and their twitter fingers!

  • Guest

    How can you lose respect for someone you never respected to start with ?

  • Sanid

    You are right about Miley & Robin – HOWEVER, would YOU want to be blamed like Paula Deen for something that happened 30 years ago? That’s right – she said it 30 years ago. People learn lessons. Where is forgiveness? What a double standard. We still haven’t forgiven George Bush for drinking 30 years ago, but it’s OK that Obama still associated with hippy terrorist bombers only 8 years before his election. And Stacey Dash again, for this? Didn’t you get enough comments last year defending Stacey’s viewpoint? And re: Trayvon Martin – two black men in hoodies stabbed (11 times), raped and beat a white woman in July 2013. Where was the outrage? It barely made the news – only on conservative outlets. Madame Noire is so one-sided. Open your eyes.

    • Clarisse73

      I thought the whole thing started with Paula Deen because she wanted to plan a slave-themed wedding with her black waitstaff pretending to be slaves? However it started, it was a huge waste of time and energy, and I did feel bad for the drubbing that she was getting. But she seems to be doing fine now, and her old fans are eager to support her, whatever she decides to do next.
      As for the alleged rape and assault by two black men on a white woman in 2013, I assume that they have caught these men or are working very hard to do so? The victim did not need any publicity in order to get the police to do their job. In Trayvon Martin’s case, the police refused to give his father any answers on what had happened to his son. If Al Sharpton hadn’t stepped in, would Trayvon’s parents have ever gotten their answers? Questionable. So why don’t people like you stop being so damn outraged that there is not some huge drama whenever a black-on-white crime occurs? It is obvious that the crime is being given ample attention by the police. No one needs to be out in the street to make sure the police do their damn job in those cases..

    • NE1BUTU

      I was with you until you brought in Bush and Obama. The difference between them and Paula Dean is that they prove to everyone frequently that they’re still idiots.

  • CCBanks

    So the fact that LiL Wayne WORSHIPS THE FOKKING DEVIL doesn’t bother you absolute morons, but his disrespect of a dead person, that’s what get’s your goat????

  • Camjacked

    Trayvon was not Murdered. He commited suicide by attacking and attempting to kill an armed individual. Thats what the facts, the Investigation and the Courts said and I agree.

    • CCBanks

      YOU AGREE BECAUSE YOU ARE A RACIST PIECE OF SHlT, who forgot to mention that the “armed individual” was STALKING TRAYVON MARTIN when Martin decided to defend himself. The only thing Trayvon did WRONG was NOT REACT WITH SUFFICIENT VIOLENCE SO AS TO KILL OR INCAPACITATE CRACKA ZIMMERMAN. I wouldn’t make that mistake.

      • Camjacked

        Seriously,everything you wrote was a complete joke. You posture yourself as total idiot. You may have a future though writing fiction and/or Comedy.

        • Clarisse73

          CCBanks has an opinion differing from yours and it makes a lot of sense to me. What is funny anyway about an unarmed teen being killed by a wanna-be cop loser? Nothing. It is a tragedy, at the very least.

      • cupcakeking

        ccbanks…..mad black guy….hahaha. nope, he thought he was a gangsta and he got his black aZZ shot….to bad homie…..lol

        • Clarisse73

          Nope, the only one who thought he was something he was not, was wanna-be cop Zimmerman. I’m still waiting for his obsessive gunplay to end with a bullet in his own a$%. I am not a malicious person, but I would find nothing upsetting about that scenario.

    What is wrong with Lemon`s comments. He has black pride and you lose respect for him because he feels that these anti social dressers are an embarrqassment to the African American community. I only looked at a couple of those you criticize to determine that your comments are ridiculous.

    • Camjacked

      When it comes to being “American” Is you is or is you ain’t? Ther are no African Americans. I’m not Itailian American I’m an American of Italian decent. One has nothing to do with the other.

    • cupcakeking

      I agree….blacks need to clean up thier act and stop acting like violent chowderheads…..

      • Clarisse73

        Have you similar advice for racist rednecks? Never mind. They wouldn’t be listening to a keyboard warrior anyway.

        • NE1BUTU

          Yes. Racist rednecks need to clean up their act too. Any group that embraces negative destructive behavior needs to be called out for the BS that they’re causing. Including many young black men and women.

  • Billca

    I don’t know who put this list together, but I’d be willing to bet s/he is still an overt Obama supporter who thinks he’s doing a fine job.

    If you lost respect for some of these people – like Kanye West – in 2013, you really have to ask what took you so long?

    Picking Toure as the moral high ground in arguing with right wingers? Really? Isn’t that like preferring George Wallace over Barry Goldwater because Wallace was a Democrat?

    Paula Deen? Her “crime” was not being so much racist as insensitive to racial sensitivities of people in general and those who would love nothing more than find a way to mooch a solid gold payday off a business or celebrity. What makes her so much worse than, say Jamie Foxx, who told a black audience he loved his role in Django Unchained because “I get to kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?” Add to it that he said “Blacks are the most talented people” and Obama was “our lord and savior”. Imagine if DiCaprio said he enjoyed his role because he got to be a slave-owner for a few days!

    Rachel Jeantel, variously describing herself as 16, 17, and 19, lied multiple times during the whole Martin-Zimmerman debacle. Her credibility suffered greatly when she could not keep her statements straight, admitted to lying, and her social media posts showed that she smoked weed, seemed to have difficulty coping without alcohol and drove drunk. The author doesn’t seem phased that Jeantel tried to cover up Martin’s apparent racist remark about a “crazy a** cracker” or changed her testimony to make it sound like GZ was confronting Martin. But the author implies you must be racist if you question her already questionable testimony.

    • A Cracker

      hmmm cracker is not considered racist. Racism can only happen to an oppressed group. Crackers were the ones who cracked the whips on the slaves (oppressed group). I use the word cracker to describe a racist person. TRUTH!

      • Billca

        “Racism can only happen to an oppressed group.”
        Sorry, no. Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another or the inferiority of one or more races. Oppression is not a required element. E.g. If a Black man preaches that “a white man, stripped of his money and technology, is slower, weaker and not as astute as a black man” that is a racist statement. During WWII the Chinese and Filipino peoples, both oppressed by the profoundly racist Japanese empire of the time, adopted racist attitudes to the Japanese. Some of that racism still exists today in China and to a lesser extent in the Philippines.

      • NE1BUTU

        Rationalizing racist language is something a racist would say. Cracker is a racist remark, whether you think so or not.

    • Clarisse73

      No, the author implies that comparing Rachel Jeantel’s looks to those of a 6-foot black male impersonating an old black woman, is insulting and shameful. Can’t you read? Or do you usually address comments that exist only in your imagination?

      • Billca

        I can read. But you presume I know who the heck you’re talking about impersonating a black woman. [adding: Looked up "Madea", now I grok]. Perhaps you think it’s “unfair” that people thrust into the public limelight become the target of critical comments and/or satire or comedic comments. Considering the gravity of the case and her shaky testimony I’m surprised that the prosecution didn’t prepare her better. But it was obvious to lots of people that she was not the most reliable or honest witness the prosecution had.

        • Clarisse73

          No, consider the fact that Lolo Jones did not bring up the subject of Rachel Jeantel’s testimony in her remarks. YOU are the who insists on bringing it up. Why? Lolo Jones was mocking Ms Jeantel’s looks and nothing more. Perhaps, being an Olympian, Lolo spent so much time concentrating on being a great Olympian, that she had no time or inclination to learn any manners.

  • icebull

    Never heard of some of these people!

  • ericamissamerica

    Can’t agree with you on Porsha. Is she dim? Yes, but I know a guy like Kordell who acted just like him, PLUS he was physical. This same guy now arches his brows and hangs with a questionable crowd. Only she knows the truth but at least there was clear evidence that he was controlling. I would not doubt that he shook her every now and again. And honestly what type a guy withholds nookie from his wife? What red blooded black man with a beautiful wife can just turn over like a diva and say no nookie? Really? A man can be at odds with his wife and nature will still take its course….just saying. Kordell is the wuss in this situation if you ask me.

    • IJS

      A man will withhold sex from his wife if he suspects infidelity on her part, or if he’s getting his needs met somewhere else. A man will get bored with having sex with a woman who thinks she’s so beautiful that all she has to do is lay there – that’s one of the reasons men generally cheat with “less attractive” women (because they tend to “work harder”). And surprisingly, there are many completely straight men who find coming home to a dumb woman to be a complete turnoff.

      • Lisa Bernstein

        true true true but in porcha’s case, we got a glimpse of life with kordell and it was NOT pretty. He most definitely was controlling and treated her more like a dependant then a wife. There was something wrong with kordell and anybody who watched the reality show, saw it….He owned her. Glad she is out of there. Now she can find herself…

  • Ms Joey Nicole

    I have to defend D.H. He and his 1st wife separated, he moved to Atlanta then moved to California before he met his 2nd wife.

  • Richard Graves

    I think Robin Thicke, nor Lolo Jones should be on this list.

  • Gotcha

    and the most offensive all to society is BEYONCE! You had plenty of time to include her and her antics. No substance nor credibility to this article.

    While I don’t agree with Don Lemon stance on taking c0(ks up the culo, he does at times make some very valid critcisms of black people. He’s like Bill Cosby, he says crazy ish that most of us don’t want to hear, but when you give some thought to what he said you find that he does have some validity.

  • Leah Robinson

    Tisk tisk! The ones that really got me were Cheryl Underwood and A$AP is this kind of self hate that’s holding us back as a people.

  • Mc Poosh

    The list should be longer and Robin Thicke doesn’t deserve to be on it.

  • Dreamincolor

    I don’t understand why you lost respect for Keyshia for saying how she felt about Beyonce’s “bow down” record.

    Smh, for everybody that was defending his weak azz “pull up their pants” list towards stop and risk, bet they didn’t know this man thought that Rush Limbaugh, a proud and known racist, didn’t go too far on his racist stereotypes on Black culture…smh all day lol.

    I agree with everyone cept Keyshia Cole. IMO, Michelle didn’t perform up to par with Bey and Kelly at the Superbowl. And yes, “bow down” is a cocky song…even Bey would agree with that. It’s “for the haters.”

    And I also agreed with Don Lemon’s 5 Points.

      People obviously aren’t allowed to have opinions anymore, especially if someone’s feeling might get hurt. One woman can’t even hate her own hair? I agreed with many of their thoughts, and I’m no racist or bigot. Boys pull up your damn pants and ladies should wear make -up that is right for their skin color. This goes for blacks & whites!

      • Elaine E Phinn

        What does pulling your pants up have to do with being successful? think you missed the point a great deal. And by no means do i support men wearing their pants below the waist! And why do women need to wear makeup, why can’t they go natural?

        • Guest

          Because no one is going to hire some fool with their pants hanging down like some moron. I know I wouldn’t, no matter how qualified they might be. It’s highly tacky and low class and has no place in the business realm. I wouldn’t even date a man that can’t put his pants where they belong.. Grown, mature men don’t need to have half their buttocks hanging out.
