    Famous People Who Were (Are) Actually Horrible People

    This video can start us off. I didn't know that about John Lennon, but I think I was aware of the others. I would've added Charlie Chaplin and Charles Dickens. Who else would you add?

    People are largely a product of the time in which they lived.

    I suppose Roman Polanski would fit on this list

    If inspiring Hitler puts one at the top of the list, then Richard Wagner deserves a seat beside Ford.

    Isn't Chevy Chase regarded as pretty much a giant douchebag?

    I think I was 10 years old when I learned that Bobby Hull beat his wife. After that, I was pretty sure that the people we idolize for their gifts in the things they do professionally bears little, if any resemblance to who they are as people.

    Oh, and yes. I was that smart at 10. Eat your hearts out.

    Prime minister Winston Churchill was a right bastard. Nothing compared to Hitler or Stalin, mind you, but a right villain nonetheless.

    Joan Crawford (Mommy Dearest), Aretha Franklin (bill delinquent and very disRESECTful to creditors), and, most definitely, the sitting president of the USA.

    Mother Theresa (a harridan).

    Cheers.

    Considering that Wagner was six years dead when Adolf was born, I think the composer can be forgiven as an accessory before the fact.

    Ok. His antisemitic writings were highly regarded by Hitler, so I don't see how being dead changes that.
