It doesn’t take much for a celebrity to fall off their pedestal in the public eye. Poor behavior, accusations, and arrests can turn America’s sweetheart into America’s Most Hated Celeb in the blink of an eye (Bill Cosby, we’re looking at you). Unfortunately, when it comes to fame and celebrity, public perception can make or break you.
Here are some hated celebrities we used to love.
Miley Cyrus started out as the cute daughter of that country guy who sings “Achy Breaky Heart.” Then she was that cute kid on Hannah Montana. Now she’s the girl who chopped off her gorgeous, wavy hair in favor of a shaved pixie cut, who demonstrated her twerking technique on Robin Thicke at the VMAs prompting he and his wife, Paula Patton, to divorce, and posts absurd pictures to Instagram on the reg.
Many parents have hated on Miley Cyrus for disowning her “job” as a role model to young children, though Miley insists she never asked for that responsibility. In addition to those minor things, there are probably some girls who are threatened by her total comfort in her own skin, which she is never afraid of flaunting (“Wrecking Ball,” anyone?).
