    Of all the people mentioned on this list, the only one I give a pass to is Paul Rubens. I was very young when he did what he did and it wasn’t until I was at least a teenager that I found out about it. I was a huge Pee-Wee fan as a preschooler. He was my favorite comedian of my childhood separate of Robin Williams. Finding out what he did made me feel sad for his career, but it didn’t change how I felt about him. In fact, very bizarrely, one of the items my family owns that means a lot to us is an old Pee-Wee doll I used to play with as a kid. I also had Chairy, his talking chair but I lost it a long time ago. We don’t know when it happened, but one day the Pee-Wee doll was found in our kitchen and my mom had him sit on top of our bananas in our fruit basket. He has been sitting there ever since. A few years ago my parents moved and I thought they wouldn’t want to move with Pee-Wee, but my mom insisted that he is an important part of the family and she jokingly said he helps to guard the bananas. She meant it he was right there in the fruit basket from the moment they unpacked the boxes. We can’t explain why he sits there and some people have said they think it is a bit weird, but we love it! Within the last 10 years, Rubens tried making a comeback as Pee-Wee on stage for a short nationwide tour. One of the shows was filmed for HBO. I watched it and was surprised at how inappropriate the content was. I couldn’t remember the original 80’s show being like that. I asked my parents if he was always that inappropriate and they said yes. Then I asked them why they let me watch his show when I was 3. They said that while some of the jokes were very adult, the heart, soul, and overall look of the show was geared to preschool and early elementary school children and they felt he was harmless.

    There is “0” evidence of Liberace being homosexual/gay. He was once engaged to actress Joanne Rio & frequently dated countless other women; not men! He testified (under oath) & denied being homosexual (or ever taken part in homosexual practices) in a 1956 defamation trial against the Daily Mirror. He further won a libel suit (1957) against Confidential Magazine for publishing a malicious article alluding to him being a homosexual. In Liberace’s biography ‘The Wonderful ‘Private’ World of Liberace’ there is no mention of him being homosexual, engaging in homosexual practices, or an affair with Scott Thorson??? Chapter Three does mention his affairs with women. Liberace was not gay!!!

    New additions: R Kelly, Jussie Smollet, and Lori Loughlin.

    • FrozenUSA
      FrozenUSA 23 days ago

      dwilsonjr78 WatchMojo put Jussie Smollet on a recent list of celebrities that did dumb things for attention, but he definitely would be on this list too! If we are putting Lori Loughlin on this list then we need to put Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy on here too for the college admissions scandal! Oh and this list should be updated to include the sexting with a minor conviction for Anthony Weiner and the fact that he went to jail for it and the two different Cosby trials and the conviction in the second one. They have a much newer list from either the end of 2017 or 2018 that includes Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Louis C.K. I would also argue that even though he’s dead that Michael Jackson could be on this list for the Leaving Neverland documentary. His legacy will forever be tarnished and there are many people out there who use to really like him and his music who don’t want to have anything to do with him anymore.
