Top Ten Problematic Celebrities that Need to be Stopped

We all know them: these men and women are some of the worst examples of respected figures in our society. They’re gross, sexist, racist fiends that need to be stopped


  1. Julianne Hough


You might be thinking, why? Why is this seemingly low key actress the worst of the worst? Just check out her Halloween costume.


Yeah, its awful

2. Donald J Trump


No real explanation necessary here

This reality star turned president is just awful… honestly we would be more comfortable with an actual Cheeto in the oval office


3. Mel Gibson


A blatantly racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, and just all around awful human being. Stop him.  


4. Amy Schumer


Amy, you can do so much good with your fame. You can be funny! You have potential! But you’re quickly becoming an icon for white feminism and you need to stop.


5. Casey Affleck


Having been accused of sexual assault on multiple occasions, casey affleck is just another fragile white boy who needs to stop feeling sorry for himself and start treating women with respect.

6. Caitlyn Jenner


Caitlyn, Caitlyn, Caitlyn… You could do so much good with the amount of money that you have and your access to resources. But, at the end of the day, regardless of your gender, you’re still white, privileged, and constantly saying problematic things.


7. Jennifer Lawrence


Jennifer Lawrence, an icon for young white women everywhere. Not only are we pretty grossed out by your general disregard for indigenous people’s monuments, but, like Amy, you’re becoming such an big icon for neoliberal white feminism in this tumultuous time. Please stop.


8. Emma Stone


Emma, we loved Crazy, Stupid, Love (and Easy A is a classic for myself personally) but your role in Aloha?? Really? Check yourself please.


9. Taylor Swift


Taylor, you’ve been exposed by Kim and Kanye already so we need not go too much into it, but you need to start really speaking out if you truly believe in the feminist movement. Stand beside the powerful men and women of color that have helped you become the artist you are today.


10. Jeffree Star


Honestly, just look this one up folks, it really makes us sick. Jeffree has used some terrible and disgusting language in the past. Please do us all a favor and stop.

(Dis)Honorable mentions:

These folks don’t need to be stopped immediately, but we’re expecting a lot from them in 2017


Yeezy is sick and needs help but if he doesn’t start working on it, then he’ll need to be stopped.


Drake just hasn’t done anything substantial with his music thus far. Hopefully our current political climate will change that?

Childish Gambino (Donald Glover)

You’ve been doing better since you started singing and doing Atlanta, but there is still a lot of improvement that can be made, especially in terms of your comedy

Justin Bieber

Wow you’ve just consistently been a bad person, Justin, but you’re getting better? I think? Don’t give us more reasons to

I write about social justice and FDT-related politics
