Since it is difficult for stars to avoid the spotlight at times, we often get to witness a lot of what’s going on with them, including the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sadly, the unpleasant aspects frequently result in criticism from the public at large as well as the industry, with particular celebrities being “canceled.” However, problems are never easy to fix, and this rejection is sometimes unjustified. Here are the top 6 celebrities who were canceled in 2021, fairly or unfairly:
1. Shia LaBeouf for being abusive:
Shia LaBeouf, a popular actor, has been in difficulty with the law since his drunk driving incident in 2008. In December 2020, Shia refuted all charges made against him by English singer FKA Twigs in a lawsuit. Given Shia’s unsettling health, it’s not hard for the audience to assume he was aggressive. For years, he harmed himself and the people around him, until he sought medical attention and took a break from acting. Netflix pulled Shia from the awards campaign for Pieces of a Woman after learning of the alleged assault by Twigs.
2. Armie Hammer for sexual assault:
Armie Hammer, who starred in Call Me By Your Name, has had a dramatic downhill slide this year after his alarming emails exposing potential appetites for rape, sadism, and cannibalism were released online. It all began when a woman who claimed to have been in a relationship with Hammer set up an Instagram profile and began posting odd descriptions about her sexual experiences with him. Hammer was accused of psychological abuse, manipulation, and compulsion by several more women later. Despite the fact that the actor’s attorney disputed the charges, he was swiftly withdrawn from a number of projects.
3. Dr. Seuss for racism in his books:
Despite the fact that Dr. Seuss has been gone for a long time (he passed in 1991), his work was canceled in 2021. Six of his novels were taken from the shelves in March due to allegations of racism. The names ‘If I Ran the Zoo,’ ‘And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,’ ‘McElligot’s Pool,’ ‘On Beyond Zebra!,’ ‘Scrambled Eggs Super!,’ and ‘The Cat’s Quizzer’ have all been removed by the publishing business.“We believed that it was time to take action,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises told The Post in a statement. “We listened and took feedback from our audiences including teachers, academics, and specialists in the field, too, as part of the review process.”
4. DaBaby for insensitive and homophobic comments:
DaBaby has been in the spotlight for a long time now, and for all the wrong reasons. While he was once a rising rapper aiming to own the game, it appears that everything came crumbling down when he erupted in a homophobic outburst during his most recent Rolling Loud festival show. Unleashing even more useless theatrics, the rapper made nasty remarks about HIV/AIDS. DaBaby was then dumped by big investors, as well as being removed off the headliner list for a slew of upcoming concerts and festivals.
5. Marilyn Manson for domestic violence:
Marilyn Manson has been convicted of grooming and assaulting actress and ex-girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood for years. Consequently, social media pronounced him canceled right away. Fans flocked behind Evan and wished her well in her recovery, whilst Marilyn was cut from his label right away. Marilyn’s business is now on a knife’s edge, and he is sure to face more difficulties in the future. Marilyn is getting investigated for domestic violence in connection with previous partners.
6. Johnny Depp for domestic abuse:
Probably the most controversial name on this list, the past few years have been a nightmare for Johnny Depp. Things got out of hand after his marriage to Amber Heard ended. There was apparent evidence that Johnny physically and mentally assaulted his ex-wife, which resulted in two lawsuits and a restraining order against him. There’s also proof that his ex-wife tortured him, so there’s no denying that their marriage was dysfunctional and that a lot of nasty things occurred between them. All of this, and more, brought about the end of their relationship, as well as led to a canceled acting career for Depp
