Top 10 Celebrities Who Most Ruined Their Careers in 2021

These celebrities had incidents in 2021 that severely impacted their careers. Only time will tell if they will be able to bounce back. Who do you think ruined their career in 2021?
The Top Ten
1 Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

Of course, he got his career cancelled because he's satanic!

He looks really creepy in that picture.

2 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Donald J. Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, Donald Trump took charge of his family's real estate and construction firm, Elizabeth Trump... read more

Ugh, don't even get me started on this man. He's disrespectful, ill-mannered, racist, sexist, homophobic, and shows no regard for anyone. His presidency turned our country into a nightmare, and I'm actually quite glad it's over.

From 2016 to mid-2020, Trump was actually pretty good. However, he took a sharp decline after the 2020 election, mainly with the Capitol riots and his attempts to overturn the election results.

Don't get me started. He cheated on the 2016 election and caused an attack, killing 4 after the 2020 election. He has been racist and may be the reason why climate change will go out of control. Put him in jail.

3 Amber Heard Amber Laura Heard (born April 22, 1986) is an American actress known for her roles in the films Never Back Down (2008), Drive Angry (2011), The Rum Diary (2011), and for portraying the DC Extended Universe character Mera in Aquaman (2018) and its upcoming 2023 sequel. She has been appointed as an ACLU ambassador for women's rights and as a Human Rights Champion for the UN's OHCHR... read more

Even if Johnny Depp wasn't completely in the right, Amber Heard's actions were far worse and what she did to him was unacceptable. When Johnny Depp eventually won the case against the allegations, I was relieved. Amber Heard's behavior, including abusing him and lying about it, is reprehensible. Furthermore, the incident involving the bed was wrong on every level.

She's a complete liar and manipulator who leeched off Johnny Depp and abused him. I'm so glad that millions of people dislike her. She deserves all the backlash.

Amber Heard is a horrible person and manipulative. She should be in the top 3, above Johnny Depp, who shouldn't be on this list.

4 Joe Biden Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (born November 20, 1942) is an American politician who is the 46th and current president of the United States. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017 under Barack Obama and represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009... read more

Yes, this man is a complete potato head, but I knew that from the beginning. I can't wait for his presidency to be over because things have only gotten more insane under his leadership. Let's go, Brandon.

The guy's a total fool! Behind his eyes, there is nothing but confusion and indecision. He is merely a mask without substance or form.

Trump may have tried to ruin democracy, but he tried to ruin the financial side of things, and arguably SUCCEEDED!

5 Morgan Wallen

This country singer went from having a number one album on the Billboard 200 to being blacklisted from US radio and having his recording contract suspended after he was caught saying the N-word.

Imagine telling someone in 2020 that a country singer accused of racism would beat Adele, Taylor, and Drake to have the best-selling album of the year.

Edit: 50 weeks on the top 10 chart. Insane.

Very disappointing. What he did on camera has made him more popular now. But he was drunk at the time and he did apologize. Imagine Wallen's album beating Eminem's MTBMB record.

6 Andrew Cuomo

Accusations of sexual harassment led to a drastic fall in approval ratings and ultimately led to his resignation as NY Governor.

At one point was the leading Democratic candidate for president.

This creep had it coming, and all I gotta say is good riddance.

7 Armie Hammer Armand Douglas Hammer (born August 28, 1986) is an American actor. A son of the businessman Michael Armand Hammer and a great-grandson of the oil tycoon Armand Hammer, he began his acting career with guest appearances in several television series. Hammer's first leading role was as Billy Graham in the 2008 film Billy: The Early Years, and he gained wider recognition for his portrayal of the twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in David Fincher's biographical drama film The Social Network (2010), for which he won the Toronto Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actor. ...read more.
8 James Franco James Edward Franco is an American actor and filmmaker. His first prominent acting role was the lead character Daniel Desario on the short-lived cult hit television program Freaks and Geeks.

Everyone who has ever suggested him to play Milo Thatch in a live-action Atlantis remake is wrong. Have Andrew Garfield, Tom Holland, or Cole Sprouse play him instead.

He admitted to being involved with students during his tenure as a film teacher.

He was involved with underage girls on multiple occasions and issued a lackluster apology.

9 Sia Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, referred to mononymously as Sia, is an Australian singer and songwriter. She released her debut album in 1997 but mainly gained mainstrem attention in the 2010s. In 2021, she released the highly controversial film "Music". The film has received negative reviews online.

Sia should honestly be number one on the list. Not only did she make the offensive 'Music' movie, which won several Razzies and even had Maddie Ziegler in tears over it because she didn't want to do the movie, but she is also a mega racist, perhaps more than Morgan Wallen. Both said the n-word, but unlike Wallen, Sia wasn't drunk when she said it on Twitter and has dressed up in blackface several times over the years.

I think she already tanked her reputation with her poor responses to the backlash against her initial announcement of the movie in late 2020, but fair enough.

A horrible, horrible person both in person and on Twitter. Tweeted the N-word and made a movie considered offensive to the autism community.

10 Ellen DeGeneres Ellen Lee DeGeneres is an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, producer, and LGBT activist. DeGeneres starred in the popular sitcom Ellen from 1994 to 1998 and has hosted her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003.

She was a complete Karen and always trying to get in other celebrities' business. So I'm glad that she's canceled.

She leverages other celebrities for their fame. Someone needs to address this.

She continues to face backlash regarding the workplace environment on her show.

The Contenders
11 Travis Scott Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.

Fun fact: Numerous bands like Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Linkin Park, Green Day, Slipknot, Queen, Foo Fighters, Panic! At The Disco, Pearl Jam, and many more have stopped their concerts just because one or two of their fans have either been sexually assaulted, attacked, passed out, or had a seizure, and they told the audience to help the victims.

Travis too stopped a concert once, and guess what for? A guy whom he assumed was stealing his shoes. He ordered the crowd to beat that kid up for doing so. So, Travis can stop a concert for a pair of shoes but not when his fans are screaming for help while hundreds are being trampled? Yeah, that automatically makes his "apology" useless.

His Astroworld Festival killed ten people and injured hundreds. Now imagine how everyone sees this man today. Videos of musicians stopping concerts to help out fans in need, those who are hurt, and kicking out those trying to ruin the concert have gone viral, including Nirvana and Queen. Now, I want to know how this festival got overpopulated.

12 Gina Carano Gina Joy Carano is an American actress, television personality, fitness model, and former mixed martial artist.

This whole situation is just ridiculous. Personally, I don't see why people share their political views on social media, as it invites criticism from sensitive, immature, and intolerant individuals who are quick to "cancel" others. However, people shouldn't be "canceled" or lose their jobs over this.

Let's get this straight: she compared being a Trump supporter to being a Jew in the Holocaust. She also made fun of wearing masks. I hate her, but I think that Lucasfilm/Disney should have tried to deal with this problem rather than just "cancelling" it. Because this doesn't resolve the issue that there are stupid people who actually think like this. But still, good riddance.

Fired from The Mandalorian after offensive posts on social media.

13 Drake Bell Jared Drake Bell is an American actor, voice actor, and musician. Born in Newport Beach, California, he began his career as an actor in the early 1990s at the age of five with his first televised appearance on Home Improvement.

I'll be honest, I don't really think he's that guilty. Yes, what he did was very wrong, but compare that to the things other people have done.

I couldn't believe it.

Especially considering he was charged with child endangerment and pleaded guilty.

14 Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II (born June 9, 1963) is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

Okay, I know people are going to bash me for this, but he really ruined his career. He's one of the greatest and most talented actors ever, and one of my absolute favourites, but he isn't going to get many more roles. I strongly dislike Amber Heard. However, if the justice system deemed him guilty, I'd say that he's guilty. It's unlikely that anyone there would actually want to end the career of such a great actor if he wasn't guilty.

That is a sad situation, and it just shows the double standards in society and the justice system when it comes to abusive relationships.

He did not deserve what happened. He was a talented actor and a good person. It's unfortunate that people sided with Amber Heard over him.

15 Alex Rodriguez Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez, nicknamed "A-Rod", is an American former professional baseball shortstop and third baseman. He played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, and New York Yankees.

Accusations of cheating led to him and J.Lo ending their engagement.

16 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce da 5'9") half of the hip-hop duo Bad Meets Evil... read more

Recently, some TikTok users called for cancellation after a snippet of "Love the Way You Lie" showed shocking lyrics that seem to glorify domestic abuse. As a response, he released a music video that denounces cancel culture. With all the respect I have for Eminem and his lyrical ability, I think he really needs to mature. He's almost 50 years old, and he needs to understand that it's no longer cool to diss famous people or write insensitive lyrics such as the reference to the Manchester Arena bombing on "Unaccommodating".

17 Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in 2009. He is also known for many hit singles, such as "Kiss Kiss", "Run It!", "Forever", "Deuces", "Look... read more

Yes, Chris Brown still can't manage his anger issues! The LAPD has recently launched an investigation against him for allegedly hitting a woman. This guy clearly has no respect for women, and I just don't understand how he can still be successful today. This abuser just needs to be cancelled and locked up in jail for good. We kept giving him a chance, but he didn't learn from his bad behavior and got worse after the incident you all know about.

Indeed, he's still feeling the repercussions from the incident where he physically abused Rihanna 13 years ago.

I can't believe he is still so popular.

18 Quavo Quavious Keyate Marshall, known professionally as Quavo, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as a member of the former rap trio Migos.

His breakup with Saweetie attracted media attention when a video of their altercation in an elevator emerged.

19 DaBaby Jonathan Lyndale Kirk (born December 22, 1991), known professionally as DaBaby (formerly known as Baby Jesus), is an American rapper who rose to mainstream prominence in 2019 after releasing several mixtapes from years before.

Just wanted to note that he also joked about Megan Thee Stallion getting shot and ridiculed her when she was offended by it. Just saying.

This incredibly goofy-looking individual makes Will Smith appear commendable by comparison.

Besides his comments being distasteful, it was particularly shocking that he said them so unexpectedly.

20 Jon Schaffer Jon Ryan Schaffer is an American heavy metal musician. He is best known as the guitarist and last remaining original member of the Florida-based heavy metal band Iced Earth, which he formed in 1985 under the name "Purgatory".

Pleaded guilty to participating in the storming of the U.S. Capitol.

21 Jussie Smollett

Faked a racist and homophobic attack.

22 Silento Richard Lamar Hawk, better known by his stage name Silentó, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is best known for his debut single "Watch Me", which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. Recently, he is also known for murdering his cousin and is currently in prison.

He shot and killed his cousin in February and was convicted of first-degree murder in August. Unbelievable. This one-hit wonder, who faded into obscurity shortly after his song was released, has now become Public Enemy No. 1.

I think killing your cousin counts for ruining your career, right?

23 Logan Thirtyacre Logan Thrityacre, (born in Florida 1994-) also known as SuperMarioLogan, is an American YouTuber and puppeteer, who makes YouTube videos with puppets and plush dolls.

He received a cease and desist from Nintendo and no longer uses Mario plushies. His main channel is shutting down soon.

Still making fun of disabled people, I see...

24 Sarah Silverman Sarah Kate Silverman (born December 1, 1970) is an American stand-up comedian, actress, producer, and writer. Her comedy addresses social taboos and controversial topics, such as racism, sexism, politics, and religion, sometimes having her comic character endorse them in a satirical or deadpan fashion.

The lady is an embarrassment, even to herself. She has proven that just because you're famous does not mean you're smart.

Santa Inc. was a sleigh full of mistakes and bad writing. If this is involved in the WBD layoffs, nothing would be lost.

25 Seth Rogen Seth Aaron Rogen is a Canadian actor, filmmaker and comedian. He began his career performing stand-up comedy during his teenage years, winning the Vancouver Amateur Comedy Contest in 1998. While still living in his native Vancouver, he landed a supporting role in the series Freaks and Geeks. He has appeared in movies such as Paul, Knocked Up, Neighbors, This Is The End, The Kung Fu Panda Franchise,... read more
