12 Beloved TV Characters that are Actually Horrible People
3. Game of Thrones’ Theon Greyjoy
HBO’s wildly popular Game of Thrones has fans reveling in the medieval fantasy of Westeros and Essos. With many characters that straddle the line of horrible, Theon Greyjoy comes to mind as one that is beloved yet terrible.
He started out as a proud, arrogant, and cocky character. Theon moved on to imprison his adopted brothers, and even kill two kids and show off their burnt and dead bodies for all to see. Just wrong on so many levels.
2. Mad Men’s Don Draper
Don was handsome, confident, and loveable, which may have been his downfall. There wasn’t a female in his life he remained faithful to over the years and he considered womanizing a sport. He also wasn’t the best parent to boot.
Plain and simple, Don was self-obsessed and didn’t care about anything else unless it suited his own purposes.
1. The Simpsons’
Speaking of a terrible parent, who chokes their child every time they misbehave?
Well, Homer does. He cares more about making it to the local bar then spending time with his kids, is an awful son to his aging dad, isn’t a good friend, and treats his sweet neighbor like trash. Homer is a horrible person, who’s only saving grace is the love he has for his wife, Marge.
Why is he adored by many? His character is too out there to not be considered comic relief. Also, maybe some can relate to his family’s dysfunctional issues.
