A few weeks ago, I wrote about Tristan Thompson allegedly paying the mother of his first child, Jordan Craig, not to be with any other men. When we posted the story on Twitter y’all had a lot to say about it. And rightly so. One of the comments that stuck out though was the suggestion that Tristan was worse than Future.
The comparison made MN managing editor and director of the women’s division, Brande Victorian think about ways we could rank these famous fuckboys to determine who was the top of the bottom. Since highlighting problematic behavior from men is one of my hobbies, the honor of sifting through the trash was bestowed upon me.
Later, the women of Hello Beautiful and MadameNoire selected categories to determine how these men would be scored in their debauchery.
How Well They Take Care of Their Children
With this one, we’re not just speaking about finances. We’re talking about fathers who are present for the rearing of their children. While we understand that these men are celebrities and have work schedules that require them to be away from their families, it’s clear when a man has a relationship with his child and when he does not.
Quiet as it’s kept, being a loyal, ride or die is for men too. Naturally, fidelity applies to the act of physical cheating–sleeping with one or more people when that wasn’t initially agreed upon with your partner. But also loyalty applies to the way these men speak about their partners, friends and exes when things aren’t going well in the relationship.
Abuse, as we know, comes in many forms. Manipulation, gaslighting, belittling, and of course physically putting your hands on someone.
Does this man use the public expression of his thoughts, opinions, ideas or art consistently undermine, suppress and degrade women?
Does this man use the public expression of his thoughts, opinions, ideas or art to undermine, suppress or degrade Black people, Black features or Black culture?
Does this man make financially sound decisions that uplift his partner and children? Does he complain about child support? Does he even pay it? Does he use money as a way to make up for his absence? Does he believe that money can solve problems he’s unwilling to address?
Now, that we know the criteria, let’s meet our contestants.
