7. Kevin Spacey

Streaming network Netflix has announced it will no longer work with Kevin Spacey in any capacity and that the production of House of Cards final season is on hold. His upcoming film, Gore, a biopic which he starred in and produced, will also not be released. All of this comes at the heels of Anthony Rapp’s accusation that Spacey tried to seduce him back in 1986 when Rapp was 14. Since then more people have come forward to accuse Spacey of inappropriate behavior. Eight current and former House of Cards employees also came forward and claimed Spacey created a “toxic” workplace environment and one even accused him of sexual assault.

6. June Shannon

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was one of TLC’s biggest hits until it was unexpectedly canceled in 2014. The show had only been on air for two years when it was discovered that Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s mother, “Mama June” Shannon, was dating a convicted child molester named Mark McDaniel. Shannon denied the allegations, but there were photographs to prove it. Not only was McDaniel a convicted felon who’d just served a 10-year sentence, but June’s eldest daughter, Anna Marie Cardwell, claimed she was one of McDaniel’s victims back when her mother first dated him. Surprisingly this didn’t end Shannon’s career. She bounced back with a huge weight loss story that is being documented on WE tv’s special Mama June: From Not to Hot which was recently renewed for a second season, but TLC has wiped their hands clean of her.
