Top 10 Biggest Pretentious Hacks In Certain Media-Making and/or Media-Feeding Careers

People whose egos falsely suggest that they are good at their entertainment careers

The Top Ten

1 Donald Trump (politicking)

Congratulations, Trump; you are officially even more pretentious than liberal news channels' and podcasts' ongoing personal vendetta against you (not to mention your own South Park parody of yourself)
Seriously, if this guy didn't buy his way into becoming President, I honestly don't know WHO did (as far as actually well-known examples go, at least) - xandermartin98

Gotta hand it to the sjws and snowflakes their extreme over reaction has guaranteed a trump win in 2020.

2 Ralph Sepe Junior AKA RalphTheMovieMaker (movie making)

An absolutely GOD-tier movie reviewer, sure, but also a downright hilariously insipid and hypocritical movie writer/director who comes across as not knowing even a QUARTER as much about his preferred art form as he claims to; still easily an S-class entertainer as far as YouTubers are concerned, however - xandermartin98

3 Stephenie Meyer (writing)

Want to talk about something that only became popular because its audience was full of stupid emo/goth posers who had absolutely no taste in its genre, do you? Well then, let's talk about Twilight, the series from which this so-called "writer" achieved her celebrity status; honestly, this series is only marginally better than the Fifty Shades one that it inspired, and don't even get me started on its infamous obsession with shirtless, sparkly vampire "hunks" - xandermartin98

4 Zack Snyder (movie making) Zachary Edward "Zack" Snyder is an American filmmaker, best known for his action and science fiction films.

Constantly insults and criticizes Marvel Studios for making overrated, pretentious and shallow films (presumably as his way of living up to the "Snyde" part of his name) even though his OWN movies act like some of the most intelligent and mature cinema on the planet while also apparently being ignorant, shallow-minded and pseudo-mature enough to seriously think that Batman is supposed to be portrayed as a thuggish, one-dimensional, muscle-headed brute who kills people for fun (with Superman also being portrayed as much of the same) - xandermartin98

5 Phil Fish (video game making)

His attitude toward people who didn't like Fez, enough said
(to make a long story short, he easily makes Nintendo fan-tards look mature about their personal media-preference opinions by comparison) - xandermartin98

6 Kanye West (rapping) Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

Constantly acts as if he is so much "classier" than other rappers, while also being pretty much just a more American version of a stereotypical Chinese Royalty Brat (aka Fuerdai) and writing lyrics about utterly degenerate things like having sex with mummies - xandermartin98

7 Seth MacFarlane (satirizing) Seth Woodbury MacFarlane is an American television producer, filmmaker, actor, and singer, working primarily in animation and comedy, as well as live-action and other genres.

If you think The Simpsons has jumped the shark, you've clearly never seen what happened to Family Guy (as far as I'm concerned, it's practically Freddy Got Fingered: The Show at this point)
Also, seriously; HOW in God's name did he manage to get away with making an entire (Cleveland) show that consisted almost entirely of pure blackface stereotyping for such an incredibly long time? - xandermartin98

8 John Kricfalusi (animation directing) Michael John Kricfalusi /ˌkrɪsfəˈluːsi/, better known as John K., is a Canadian animator, voice actor, producer, writer, and director best known for creating The Ren & Stimpy Show and founding the animation company Spümcø.

Had literally only one decently watchable show that actually was interesting enough to become well-known (much like Joe Murray, except that Rocko's Modern Life actually was legitimately good for reasons OTHER than it being visually experimental and boundary-pushing, unlike Ren & Stimpy), was an utterly horrible deadline meeter and treated his employees like outright slaves

(oh, and don't even get me STARTED on his attitude about shows LIKE Rocko's Modern Life and Animaniacs) - xandermartin98

9 Thom Yorke (music writing) Thomas Edward "Thom" Yorke is an English musician best known as the singer and principal songwriter of the alternative rock band Radiohead.

His band (as far as I know) has had MAYBE two or three DECENTLY worthwhile main albums other than The Bends and OK Computer (and even those two still really only had a scant few actually major highlight songs each and were both huge ripoffs of other bands, namely REM and Pink Floyd), he can't sing in an actually coherent manner to save his life, his musical compositions are boring and repetitive as Hell, he's just plain ugly and annoying (which he's even admitted multiple times), and it's honestly debatable whether or not he even remembers what real music is anymore (as he so insistently claims) - xandermartin98

10 Michael Bay (movie making) Michael Benjamin Bay is an American filmmaker known for directing and producing big-budget action films characterized by fast cutting, stylistic visuals and extensive use of special effects, including frequent depiction of explosions.

The Contenders

11 Spike Lee (politicking)

A hypocritical douche that stereotypes white people as all being sociopathic Klansmen who are out to get him, but at least he's made a few decent films over the years - xandermartin98

12 LeafyIsHere (video making)
13 Toby Fox (video game making)

If you take away its absolutely incredible amount of charm and storytelling details, Undertale (gameplay-wise) is only slightly more enjoyable than Earthbound itself even in Pacifist runs (and don't even get me started on this guy's Earthbound Halloween Hack that he made BEFORE Undertale; now THAT right there was just absolute try-hard, sensationalist garbage in every way) - xandermartin98

14 Joe Murray (cartoon writing) Joseph David "Joe" Murray is an American animator, writer, illustrator, producer, director, and voice actor, best known as the creator of the Nickelodeon animated series Rocko's Modern Life and the Cartoon Network animated series Camp Lazlo.
