When it comes to the entertainment world, there are some celebrities that we have a preconceived notion about. There are certain celebs we just assume are not very nice people and there are others we assume are actually very good people based on their public persona. Once we think we know the personality of a particular kind of person we’re always kind of shocked when those people say or do something that is both incredibly offensive and incredibly shocking. The things that they said usually change the way the public actually perceived them, in some regards basically crippling their careers. Check out our list of 10 celebrities who spouted shocking hate speech and tell us what you think.
Giuliana Rancic made this list when she was talking about African American actress and singer Zendaya. On Fashion Police, Rancic didn’t really like the actress’s hair when she showed up in dreadlocks. Rancic said the hair looked like it smelled of “…patchouli oil. Or, weed.” Viewers took the comments to be racist and Rancic later had to apologize.
Robert Downey Jr is one of the rare people on this list who has managed to overcome some pretty horrible comments. When director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu made a comment about superhero movies creating a cultural genocide, Downey responded by saying that people whose native tongue is Spanish can’t be very bright. Downey Jr. added that people shouldn’t take what he said seriously since he himself, speaks Spanish.
