The 12 Worst Celebrity Role Models Right Now!

Some celebrities are just awful role models because they set really bad examples for their legions of fans. Many of the celebrities on this list don’t seem to care about the example that they set and seem way more interested in fame and money. We have a list of 12 celebrities we consider to be the worst role models in Hollywood right now. Enjoy!

12. Tiger Woods

Once upon a time, people really admired Tiger Woods – that is until it came out that he cheated on his wife with copious amounts of women and had, more or less, been living a double life for a number of years. Although Woods’ game has improved out on the course in the last year, his image still hasn’t. Will Woods always be considered a cheater?

11. Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton, like Kim Kardashian, is most famous for having released a sex tape. Since her reality TV days, Hilton has had numerous run ins with the law. In 2006, she was arrested for driving under the influence and, in 2010, she was arrested in Las Vegas for cocaine possession while her boyfriend at the time was arrested for driving under the influence. Hilton has the words “bad model” written all over her!

10. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has been a poor role model for many years now. In fact, it is hard to remember when she was a good role model! Lohan has become more famous for her stints in rehab, her struggles with drugs and alcohol and her many brushes with the law than for her acting abilities. It is hard to remember the last movie Lohan starred in, which suggests that her acting career is pretty much dead.

9. Heidi Montag

The 10 plastic surgery procedures Heidi Montag underwent in one day at the age of 23 definitely make her a bad role model for young women! Heidi didn’t even need any of these procedures – she was already an attractive young women, but she went ahead anyway and had a mini brow lift, botox in her forehead and frown area, a nose job revision, chin reduction, buttock augmentation and liposuction on various parts of her body! Oh, and did we mention the breast implants? Hard to forget those!

8. Rihanna

Rihanna is a bad role model for so many reasons. Her questionable relationship with Chris Brown is definitely at the top of the list, though. In spite of him beating her back in 2009, Rihanna kept going back to Chris, not thinking twice about the bad example it set for her fans. Rihanna also has a thing for inappropriate selfies. She has posted pictures that show her walking on money, posing nearly naked and rolling diamonds in cigarette paper. We really thought Rihanna had more potential than this!

7. Kim Kardashian

Considering that she only became famous once her sex tape was released back in 2007, it’s hard to consider Kim Kardashian a good role model. Her only other claim to fame is her family’s slew of reality television shows. Kim seems to have only one real talent – promoting herself and, if you have watched “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” you know that she does it well.

6. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has been trying to shed her good girl image for a while now and she has finally succeeded! After Cyrus’s VMA performance this year when she was seen twerking and inappropriately using a foam hand all while dressed in practically nothing, it is safe to say that she murdered her image as a good role model. It’s hard to come back from something like this, Miley. You should know better.

5. Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is a really talented actor, but that doesn’t mean he’s a good role model! Sources claim that, back in 2011, Sheen relapsed and was abusing crack, cocaine and alcohol – and was procuring the services of high-end escorts. Right now Sheen is dating porn star Brett Rossi and, according to sources, partying like a rock star while his ex-wife, Denise Richards, takes care of his two sons with ex-wife (and professional train wreck) Brooke Mueller.

4. Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong spent a good portion of his career lying and cheating and, of course, bullying those who tried to expose his lies and his cheating, so naturally he is considered a bad role model. After lying for many years about his doping, Armstrong finally came clean on “Oprah,” but it was too little too late for this disgraced athlete.

3. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is anything but a good role model and we think it is because he acts like an entitled brat. What makes Bieber a bad role model? Well, he takes high speed drives around his neighborhood and, when a neighbor confronted him, he spat in his face; he visited the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam and wrote “Hopefully she would have been a Belieber” in the guest book; and he allegedly spat on his fans from the balcony of his hotel in Toronto. This young man acts entitled and he comes off as a brat.

2. Farrah Abraham

Farrah Abraham is a terrible role model and the fact that she is a mother to a young girl is pretty scary! Abraham sold an XXX-rated “home video” of her herself with a porn star for $1.5 million to Vivid Entertainment titled “Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.” Abraham has also had as much plastic surgery as Heidi Montag, most of it done while she was still a teen. This leaves one question: After the release of Abraham’s sex tape, is she now a porn star instead of a reality star?

1. Chris Brown

The words “Chris Brown” and “bad role model” are synonymous! Ever since Brown physically assaulted Rihanna back in 2009, we just haven’t looked at him the same way! The man has serious anger issues and has a reputation for using physical violence. Earlier this year Brown went to rehab to deal with his anger issues after he had yet another brawl and he was kicked out! Who gets kicked out of rehab?! Oh yeah, Chris Brown!
