Top 10 Celebrities Who Most Ruined Their Careers in 2022In an era of constant scrutiny and the unforgiving nature of the internet, it's not uncommon to see celebrities experience a downfall due to their actions. As public figures, they are held to high standards, and any misstep can quickly spiral into a massive scandal. The year 2022 was no exception, as we saw some of the most notable and influential personalities in the entertainment industry face serious consequences for their behavior. Here are the celebrities that have gotten accused and cancelled for unacceptable behavior that caused (huge) controversies in 2022, which might even lead up to the destruction and downfall of their careers. This top ten list highlights the shocking moments that left us all questioning the actions of these once-admired stars.
She lied under oath and from evidence shown in court it was proven that she not only gaslighted Mr. Johnny Depp, she did all she could to ruin his reputation, take as much of his fortune as she could, and used him to try to make herself more valuable as an actress when she showed on the stand she couldn't act at all. She physically abused him from the moment she found out she wasn't in his will until the day the two divorced and even beyond. She abused him verbally proven through recordings.
Did more damage to actual abuse victims coming forward and being believed than anyone could imagined. The face of why some people don't believe accusers.
It's going to be interesting to see what her career will look like in the coming years. I doubt she'll get many roles, if any, and if she does land one, the project will probably get a lot of online backlash.
It's been a true fall from grace for her, she will probably never land a movie role again after all the controversy.
Update: Kanye West has ruined his career EVEN MORE. He has been interviewed in Alex Jones's InfoWars, a far-right fake news TV network. But that's not the worst part. He openly praised ADOLF HITLER during the interview and explained how he was a good guy, while Jones is there cringing at what he was saying. He is now banned from Twitter after posting a picture of a FREAKING SWASTIKA in a Star of David, a symbol in Judaism. This entire thing makes me wonder: how low can a pathetic excuse of a human being go? He literally ruined his entire career in just ONE SINGLE INTERVIEW AND TWEET. I think Kanye is going insane by now.
And now he's under fire again, this time for his anti-semitic tweets and his "White Lives Matter" t-shirts. He was already into unforgivable territory, but now it's just too much. It hurts me to say this because I loved Kanye's music, but I truly think he needs to be interned into a mental hospital.
His constant harassing of ex-wife Kim Kardashian likely caused a lot of people, including myself, to cancel him and become tired of defending him.
And now he's said lots of stuff against jewish people and praised hitler and called himself a nazi.
He is a big temper tantrum baby. He hit some guy on stage and he hit a reporter a couple years back. Hes also ugly and looks like an aardvark.
On March 27th, 2022, at the 94th Academy Awards, Will Smith took a step further that went too far... slapping Chris Rock over a joke about his wife's bald head that offended him, especially with that infamous comment, "Keep my wife's name, out your ... mouth". He got a lot of attention and hate overnight and the following day after the incident. That was probably the biggest TV scandal since Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson's Super Bowl incident in 2004. Just less than two weeks later, Smith was officially banned from any Academy Award ceremonies for ten years. He is in his wall of shame right now, before he would either remain cancelled or make a huge comeback.
It was such a iconic and hilarious moment, but it quickly turned into outrage, mainly because of how uncalled for it was and how Smith was laughing with Rock about the joke just a few moments earlier. He has apologized so maybe he can recover for this, but only time will tell.
While going on stage and slapping someone is terrible, I don't want to see Will's career to crumble over slapping someone onstage. Especially when other well known stars got away with much worse than that.
Boris Johnson has been getting accused and cancelled for breaching rules and regulations of the COVID-19 pandemic by throwing a lockdown Christmas party back in 2020. Despite his apology, people still accused him for being a liar and want him to resign.
I hope this sorry excuse of a clown gets banished from UK permanently. One of the worst prime ministers ever.
All politicians aren't cut out to lead. He's one.
I hope Miller gets his act together.
He has anger issues and serious mental problems, he needs to go to the funny farm
Joe Rogan got a lot of controversy when he spread misinformation about COVID-19 on his Spotify podcast. Even Neil Young threatened to remove his whole catalog from Spotify if Rogan doesn't delete the podcast. However, it was too late, as Young took it away, followed by Joni Mitchell, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Rogan has also been cancelled the same year for using the racial slur.
This list still needs more Bob Chapek, especially since he just recently got ousted as CEO of Disney in favor of Iger coming back.
Considering he still gets plenty of celebrities on his podcast, I wouldn't say he ruined his career. Sometimes controversy creates cash.
Should maybe be even higher, this was a huge movement when artists were leaving spotify in outrage at all the things he was saying.
I wouldn't say he ruined his career to this point but I think it's what's likely to happen. Because of him having purchased Twitter, many users are leaving the platform.
DaBaby has gone through controversy again when he and his crew beat up DaniLeigh's brother at a bowling alley in February this year. Surveillance footage of the Huntersville shooting he was involved in four years prior, was also released two months following the incident. But the main reason he's still cancelled is because of his homophobic remarks.
This ugly homophobic 500-toothed dinosaur should be A LOT higher on this list.
Anything to keep himself in the headlines.
He is very dumb and weird and believes in dumb conspiracy theories. Needs to get his brain examined
We all have druggy family members...he sure makes the Biden family look good
Zouma was filmed physically abusing his cat in his home, and receive a lot of backlash for horrendous animal abuse. Despite his apology, it surely damaged his reputation. He had to serve 180 hours of community service and be banned from owning a pet for five years demanded by the British court.
Abuses an animal when he looks like an animal himself. Shame on you, Kurt Zouma
Can't stand animal abusers.
Oh thank god the picture is faked, don't really care for him getting killed by the bear for riding it, but more worried about the bear because of animal abuse.
We should band together and kill all Putin supporters by sending them to gulags in Ukraine!
Should be number 1. Most evil man alive. Hope he's dead by this time next year.
This photo is faked.
The cost of doing right, in the wrong political party.
I'm not too familiar with what was going on around R. Kelly in the past. Maybe there were some controversies and allegations going around that time, so do let me know for clarification.
That said, the guy's been found guilty of engaging in pedophilia as well as kidnapping, trafficking, and sexual exploitation, and he was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Yeah, R. Kelly needs to be in 1st place. What he did was absolutely awful and he was continuing practitioner for his acts. Because of that, his music career is more-or-less either dead or will be overshadowed by what he did.
Nothing "new": about what R. Kelly has now been convicted of. Its been well known for two decades, and he just kept getting away with it. If you continued to be a fan, you are also at fault.
Thank God he finally got sent down.
A poundshop comedian at best and a poor man's Chris Farley. He is hated by far superior comedians that actually write their own jokes, e.g. Ricky Gervais and Stewart Lee. While fellow comedian Peter Kay is a nice person, James Corden is an thick, arrogant, rude, insufferable person who kisses up to far superior celebrities to get more publicity. He has a punchable face.
Since the incident at Balthazar in New York, more people have realized he's not that nice of a person, although he apologized to the personnel of the restaurant after he was banned.
Should be in jail
Reminder to self: if a celebrity, don't talk about controversial topics, don't get Rowlinged. But honestly, Harry Potter pretty much ruined my life, it's just a series in which people find joy in the magical world of Harry Potter because their own lives suck, sorry to ruin everything for you, adult Harry Potter fans.
It's really sad to see that the author of one of the most beloved sagas has ruined her career with a transphobic rhetoric.
Imagine a pizza box leading to your arrest. Rate Jerry's Pizza 5 Stars
It all started in early 2022, when Dr. Dre, his mentor when signed to Aftermath, preferred 50 Cent over The Game. The Game got mad over this, and a few months later, said that he's "way better than Eminem". When he released Drillmatic: Heart & Mind, it contains a 10-minute diss track that took aims on Eminem, named "The Black Slim Shady". It also took aims at Dre, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, and even Eminem's daughter, Hailie, when she's doing her own profession, not rap. Right now, this diss track has failed to become successful as MGK's "Rap Devil", so Eminem's not going to diss you. Being silent is a harder diss than dropping a diss track.
His 10 minute diss track was so bad. If I were Eminem I wouldn't bother sending a diss back because The Game already buried his own grave.
Who does he think he is making racist comments to Lewis Hamilton? He's not even relevant in 2022.
He used a racial slur towards Lewis Hamilton during a podcast and received a lot of backlash for that.
Has he been CEO of Disney for any longer, he probably would've been stupid enough to replace Epcot's Morocco pavilion with another country in a cheap and desperate attempt to get Disney to make more money that would more than likely backfire due to unprecedented backlash from fans.
I will NEVER forgive him for that one comment he made about animation only being for kids without having any appeal for adults. Thank god he is no longer in charge of Disney!
Simply put, she makes Nicki Minaj look like Taylor Swift!
In January this year, a woman filed a civil lawsuit over the fact that Brown had inappropriate conduct with her on a yacht in Miami on December 2020. However, Brown denied the allegations. We cannot tell if this was true or if this was not, because people are cancelling Chris Brown this year, as he is no longer remaining relevant, ever since the fact he never learned from the 2009 Rihanna incident.
