Top 10 Famous People Who Will Make You Lose Faith in Humanity

For this list I will be including criminals and non-criminals. I'll mostly be filling the Top 10 of this list with real criminals instead of non-criminals because those are far worse, but you are free to add anyone who makes your blood boil the most onto here.

These are people who have done things that are so stupid or so horrible that they really do make you feel ashamed of being part of the human race. I do not at all condone the actions of any of these people listed. It is important though to learn from past mistakes so that we don't make any more in the future. Be safe, be good, and never make the wrong choices.
