Celebrities We Lost Respect For In 2013
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.
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.
Paula knows what she did. You do too.
“Rachel Jeantel looked so irritated during the cross-examination that I burned it on DVD and I’m going to sell it as Madea goes to court.”
It takes a special kind of low-down to make fun of a 17-year-old testifying on behalf of a friend who was murdered while she was talking to him. And that’s why Olympian LoLo Jones’ tweet about Rachel Jeantel during the Trayvon Martin trial was the last straw for us.
This “Preacher of L.A.” cheated on his wife, let his side chick co-star on his reality show, and Tweeted pictures of his wenis. I’m all the way done with this man of God.
“Crazy$exyCool” did not shine a favorable light on your girl. The Twitter-verse is done with Pebbles and I am too.
Sheryl Underwood stopped being funny when she called black hair “nappy” and “nasty” on “The Talk” while the audience laughed along. We have enough trouble overcoming our hair issues without Sheryl backpedaling on progress.
I just can’t co-sign on this sort of self hate. When A$AP Rocky said that only light-skinned girls could wear red lipstick (and dark-skinned girls couldn’t even rock purple right), I turned “Peso” all the way off.
I don’t know if I’m madder at Lil’ Mo for coming for a blind man or a music Icon. First she vetoed Stevie Wonder’s Florida boycott by saying it wasn’t fair to deny musicians income because of a national tragedy. Then she took shots at the man’s lack of eyesight:
“If the coin was right, would HIS staff accept or deny the gig? And if so how would he know? They could say it’s sumpter, sc or nah?”
Not only did Wayne turn the tragedy of Emmet Till’s beating into a raunchy sex lyric, he took four months to apologize — and only after his sponsors started to drop him.
First he demanded that Rasheeda get an abortion because he didn’t “know where that woman’s privates been”. Then he cheated when she refused. Rasheeda may have forgiven Kirk, but we can’t.
The way Kordell handed Porsha her walking papers had to hurt. But Porsha took the bitter divorce to another level when she started spreading rumors that Kordell was gay and hinting that he’s assaulted her. I can’t say I blame Kordell for thinking about suing her for slander.
Peter Gunz may have taken brother-hood down to a new low when he married his jump-off while living with the mother of his children.
Miley twerked her way out of a lot of hearts this year.
I don’t know whether Robin Thicke stole Marvin’s music or not. But based on his history of sharing and oversharing, we’d say it’s possible. Robin went from being a mysterious blue-eyed soul singer to a man who tells way to much of he and his wife’s business in the bedroom and can’t keep his hands to himself.
Keyshia Cole has a lot of trouble staying on her fans’ good side. First she came for Michelle Williams for “f—in’ the groove up” during the Super Bowl half time performance. Then she had the nerve to try to start with Beyonce and call her “self righteous” after she released “Bow Down.” Keyshia needs to focus on her own career before all of that back biting puts her on fans’ permanent ish list.
Stacey makes our list again for defending Paula Deen and getting in Jay Z and Beyonce’s business over their Cuba trip. She can be conservative if she wants to, but the fact that she does it for the sake of attention is deplorable.
