Celeb Careers That Ended In 2018 Due To An Idiot Mistake

Actors, musicians, YouTube stars, comedians,
plenty of high-profile celebrities destroyed their careers in 2018 for a wide variety of
reasons. Between serious allegations, big beefs, and
tempestuous tweets, these stars have wreaked lasting havoc on their futures in the entertainment
industry. Gunn fired James Gunn faced a lot of fallout for old
tweets in 2018. The Guardians of the Galaxy director and writer
was fired from the hit Marvel franchise for offensive tweets dating back nearly a decade. The posts featured jokes about subjects as
dark as the Holocaust and pedophilia. Gunn responded in July 2018 via a series of
since-deleted tweets: “Many people who have followed my career know
when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were
outrageous and taboo. […] I am very, very different than I was
a few years ago. […] My days saying something just because
it’s shocking and trying to get a reaction are over.” Unfortunately for Gunn, it was too little
too late for Disney, and they parted ways with the writer-director after the Tweets
resurfaced in July. Even after petitions and protests from the
Guardians cast, particularly from Dave Bautista, Gunn’s career with Disney is over. However, DC did hire him for the sequel to
2016’s Suicide Squad, so perhaps he’ll salvage some standing in the industry. “Sweet Christmas” Luke Cage star Mike Colter was looking forward
to a third season of the Marvel Netflix series when he made a really inappropriate joke about
a pastor at Aretha Franklin’s funeral allegedly groping pop star Ariana Grande. In a since-deleted tweet, Colter wrote, alongside
laughing face emojis, “Now this is how you shoot your shot. No f—-s.” The internet did not like this, especially
considering the trauma themes in Luke Cage’s sister series, Jessica Jones. Colter apologized in another since-deleted
tweet, writing, “Hello all. I apologize about my tweet earlier. In no way do I condone any such behavior. It was intended to point out the absurdity
of the act itself. Complete and biting sarcasm. I realized quickly that it was not taken as
such.” About a month later, Netflix announced that
Luke Cage wouldn’t be renewed for a third season. It’s pretty unclear if the ax had anything
to do with Colter’s remarks…but the timing seems uncanny. “Sweet Christmas.” Cheaters never win Evan Felker, frontman of the Turnpike Troubadours,
got the chance of a lifetime when Miranda Lambert handpicked his band to open for her
on tour. However, when the pair got romantically involved,
allegedly while he was married and while she was still dating Anderson East, things got
complicated. A source told People that Felker ghosted his
wife Staci when he went on tour, then blindsided her with divorce papers. Unfortunately for Felker, Lambert’s flame
for him apparently burned out very fast. By August 2018, they’d split, with Lambert
announcing that she was single and ready to mingle. Days later, Felker quit Lambert’s tour, allegedly
because of kidney stones. He later issued a statement on his band’s
Instagram, “We are working through some family and medical
issues that have made it impossible for us to be on tour.” Family issues, huh? The Fall of Minaj Let’s be clear: Nicki Minaj will go down in
history as one of the most successful rap artists of all time. That said, she spent the bulk of 2018 tarnishing
her legacy with pointless feuds that hurt her bottom line. In July 2018, Minaj got an intern at an entertainment
blog fired for tweeting about the direction of Minaj’s music, writing: “You know how dope it would be if Nicki put
out mature content? […] She’s touching 40 soon, a new direction
is needed.” Minaj harassed the writer, even targeting
her 4-year-old daughter and telling the blogger to kill herself. Minaj also lashed out at rapper Travis Scott
on social media for selling his Astroworld album with bundles that included clothing
and concert tickets, beating her Queen album for the top spot on the Billboard 200 in August
2018. She blamed a Nicki Hate Train for her album’s
lackluster reception and postponed her tour. Sources told Page Six ticket sales were abysmal. And then there’s her ongoing feud with rapper
Cardi B, who is clearly battling Minaj for her kingdom…and winning. Mo’Nique can’t negotiate Comedian and actress Mo’Nique may have curtailed
her stand-up career after criticizing Netflix for allegedly low-balling her in contract
negotiations. She called for a boycott of the service based
on what she claimed. She compared her $500,000 offer with the tens
of millions offered to Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and Amy Schumer, specifically calling
out Schumer’s bankability after her movie Snatched flopped. That, of course, ignored the fact that Schumer’s
Netflix contract was signed when she’d sold out Madison Square Garden and was still riding
a career high from Trainwreck. Perhaps what put the final nail in Mo’Nique’s
career coffin was comparing her salary negotiations to being ravaged while speaking to Sway Calloway
on his radio show Sway’s Universe. “Did you ask any of the white women to apologize? When they said they were violated? By Harvey Weinstein?” “Hm” “Did you ask any of them to be humble?” Mo’Nique previously accused heavy-hitters
like Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry of blackballing her from the industry after she refused to
promote Precious, the film that earned Mo’Nique an Academy Award. Whoopi Goldberg even slammed Mo’Nique’s conduct
to her face on The View. “When you make a movie regardless of who you
sign the deal with” “Yes” “Your job” “Mmhmm” “is to go and promote said movie” Though Netflix has not responded publicly
to Mo’Nique’s remarks, she has no specials lined up to date. “Repellent and stupid” Sean Penn is an Oscar-winning actor, but it’s
not his onscreen skills that are dead in the water. It’s his budding career as a novelist. The notoriously temperamental star released
his debut book, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, in which he attempts to satirize American
culture and even mocks the #MeToo movement. The book hasn’t sold well, and critics have
not been kind. “Well that sure made us LOL” “Laugh out loud?” “No, lose our lunch!” “Ahahaha mmmm” The Guardian called Penn’s debut novel, “[…] repellent and stupid.” The New York Times labeled it, “[…] plotless [as well as] conspicuously
un-fun […]” The Washington Post wondered what the heck
Penn was thinking, and Huffington Post called it a, “[…] garbage novel […]” We’re not saying Penn should necessarily stick
to acting and leave the novel-writing to someone else. We’re just saying it sounds like as a writer,
Penn’s a really good actor. T.J. Miller isn’t making friends Comedian and actor T.J. Miller seemed to hurt
his career in 2017 when he left HBO’s Silicon Valley, but it wasn’t until 2018 that Miller’s
conduct on the set was revealed. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Miller
frequently fell asleep during filming and often showed up late and unprepared, causing
delays. Some insiders hinted that Miller may have
had issues with self-medicating and alleged his temper could flare. Miller pushed back. He told THR, “I’m not high when I work because it gets
in the way of the comedy. I also am not a guy who’s blackout-drunk,
bumping into things on set. […] What was occurring was I was out doing
stand-up all the time, even if it meant I only got three hours of sleep. So, the thing I have a problem with? It’s pushing myself to do too much.” Then in July 2018, former Silicon Valley actress
Alice Wetterlund accused Miller of bullying her on set, which he also denied. But regardless of what Miller did or didn’t
do while filming Silicon Valley, something much more disturbing happened a few months
before Wetterlund’s accusations. Miller was arrested in April 2018 for allegedly
reporting a fake bomb threat on an Amtrak train, causing massive delays. The Blast reported in September 2018 that
Miller may be pursuing a plea bargain in the case. “Something Special” from Fergie At the NBA All-Star Game in February 2018,
Fergie decided to, quote, “try something special” during the national anthem. It was special all right. Her weird vocal runs, jazz inflections, and
bizarre gestures made her performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” go viral…for all the
wrong reasons. (cringeworthy moment here) A lot of viewers were less than impressed
with Fergie’s rendition. The singer responded by telling TMZ, “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly
this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my
best.” But some sources say she wasn’t apologetic
at all. An insider told US Weekly, “Neither Fergie nor her team thought anything
was wrong with her national anthem rendition. That’s the way she sings a lot of her songs. She loves adding a little and being different
with her riffs. It was meant to be jazz-inspired. She wanted to stand out.” Yes, because what a song about war and patriotism
needs is a little more. A beef with a beefcake Tyrese Gibson did his career no favors in
2017, when he repeatedly and publicly slammed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for starring in
a Fast & The Furious spin-off with Jason Statham called Hobbs and Shaw. However, it wasn’t until 2018 that Gibson
apparently realized he’d hit rock bottom. Gibson acknowledged as much during Van Lathan’s
Red Pill podcast in July 2018, “Everything about ya know going at the Rock
publicly, psych meds…” “I have yet to talk to the Rock to this day.” Though it sounds like Gibson wants to make
amends, he may be motivated by a need for cash rather than friendship. The actor’s ex-wife claimed in court documents
that he’s suffering financially, in part, because he foolishly picked a fight with The
Rock. Woody may finally be out Acclaimed director Woody Allen was accused
of abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, more than 20 years ago. The Los Angeles Times reported that abuse
experts and police investigated the allegations, but prosecutors and Dylan’s mother, actress
Mia Farrow, didn’t want to pursue charges against Allen for fear of traumatizing then-7-year-old
Dylan. A judge in the case said Allen’s behavior
toward Dylan was “grossly inappropriate.” Allen has denied the allegations repeatedly. All of that, in addition to Allen’s controversial
marriage to Mia’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, hasn’t been enough to stop Allen’s
success in the industry, but an incredibly tone-deaf interview he conducted in June 2018
might do just that. While being interviewed for the Argentinian
news program Periodismo Para Todos, Allen called himself a, quote, “[…] poster boy
for the #MeToo movement.” Allen went on to say, “I have worked in movies for 50 years. I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and
not a single one […] ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all. I’ve always had a wonderful record with them.” “Do you treat all the girls you desire this
way?” “Yes oh yes I undress them and tie them up
yes I learned that in the boyscouts” “Lovely” Allen’s claims of a spotless record aren’t
entirely true: Mariel Hemingway, who starred in 1979’s Manhattan, alleged in her memoir
Out Came the Sun that Allen attempted to seduce her when she turned 18, and he was 44. In 2018, numerous stars of past Allen films
renounced working with him ever again. Sources told Page Six in August 2018 that
Allen’s latest film A Rainy Day in New York may never see the light of day. Tweeting away a career Roseanne Barr had the No. 1 sitcom on TV with
her reboot of Roseanne, but in May 2018, she threw it all away with a racist tweet: Barr
took to social media to compare former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett’s looks to the
characters on Planet of the Apes. The tweet directly led to the show’s cancellation,
after which Barr tweeted, “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all
Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about
her politics and her looks. I should have known better.” In spite of her apology, the comic couldn’t
get her job back. Insiders called said there was no way her
career would survive her tirade. The rest of the cast was eventually rehired
for The Conners, a spin-off of Roseanne that killed her character off after an opioid overdose. Since then, Barr has reportedly lost contact
with everyone she worked with on the series. Barr told Vice News Tonight that she is no
longer in contact with anyone from Roseanne, “I don’t keep in touch with anyone on the
show. I’ve been removed from the process of my life’s
work. It’s like, the worst thing they could have
possibly done to me was to fire me from my own show and let other people write my life
story. I’m not going to watch it and I’m not going
to condemn it or say anything bad about it either. I’m just moving on from it.”

  1. I'm doubly amazed here first of all I'm amazed on how these celebrities can be so fucking stupid then secondly I'm amazed on how the average person could even give a fuck what these celebrities do or say people need to get a life

  2. I gotta give Monique her props, she's not the greatest comedian or actress but she hasn't sold herself to Hollyweird. At least she's being honest and sharing what's needed. She deserves way more respect than Nicki Minaj

  3. I personally think the way they do Nikki is completely unnecessary.seriously like the fuck why they hate her so much?you straight up discus me.

  4. I think the title of this video should be Celebrities whose careers were ruined because their fans are idiots

  5. Nikki is done. She did it to herself!😂😂😂Monique spoke facts…please insert Steve Harvey for 2019's list!!! Lol😂.

  6. I never did like Rosanne Barr, back in the day as kid forced to watch the show, I feel somewhat vindicated now. Racist bitch deserves to be erased from Cinema imo.

  7. meh. To be honest, I'm still kind of pissed at the rosanne thing. Not against her mind you, but for the always looking to be offended snowflakes. FFS, it was just a tweet, and you want to ruin here. time for people and grow a pair, and just a rant from some one just be a rant. I know in my years Iv'e said some stupid shit, and later thought, geese, what was I thinking. and it was done. no need to hash it up again for more. just saying.

  8. Whoever made this doesn’t know the facts. Queen Nicki ain’t going nowhere dream on. No other rap sis is going to be taking over anytime soon.

  9. Roseanne's tweet was not racist, ffs. The woman really does look like that character from Planet of the Apes with that hairstyle.

  10. 4:16 I'm getting so tired of the hating on Mo'Nique. Her career may have suffered, but she did what was right. And other black performers will benefit from her integrity-even the ones throwing shade at her now.

  11. With Luke Cage thing from Netflix. I doubt it was because of anything he stated on Twitter. Disney bought Marvel and Netflix's Marvel selection has all been cancelled.

  12. These people didn't ruin their careers! Who the fuck is Nicki Swift? Nobody ever heard of that guy before he started talking shit on other people.

  13. Dude… you are a professional troll, Nicki Swift. Lamest video content ever. Get a real career and grow some originality.

  14. Gun was rehired by disney. Update your video or take it down. People shouldnt be held accountable for something they said 5 years ago just because todays social standards changed.

    Netflix canceled Luke cage because DIsney+ is coming out this year and DIsney doesnt want to continue develop exclusive content for another platform.

  15. Half the comments in here, are black women defending the most irritating black woman on the planet.

  16. Not to be 2 critical,but I wish Nicki Minaj would go away, I was never a fan, I give her credit for doing her thing all these years, but take a seat. In my opinion her being so hateful is her way of staying relevant

  17. OMG woodsy Allen is OLD, and anything about him is old news, that doesn't give anybody a pass to be an ass, but talk about a different generation, way before my time, He is a very strange little man, perverted to I'll give you that , She said her self she was in love with him before she was of age

  18. From when Roseanne started, she's always been a racist, stupid to go on Twitter and state it for the world to see, yes I'll give you that, but again she was a man hating ,overweight ,divorced mother, bipolar, split personalities, I was not surprised, I've heard her say these things since the 80s just saying my opinion, but she was a funny funny bitch

  19. Where are you getting your info on Nicki?????? It’s incorrect. Y’all have tried this before. It ain’t gonna work. stream MEGATRON July 21st.

  20. I understand none of these Celebs were Angles but alot of Careers were killed off because of overly sensitive people . Going throw Twitter posts 10yrs or older is rediculosly insane SMH . This is our World.

  21. Minaj one of the most successful rappers? More like one of the most cum dumpster rappers of all time. Same goes for fergi it seems

  22. 🗣 What happened to freedom of speech you should be able to say anything you want to without Backlash 🤔

  23. Yep clearly James Gunns career is over. I mean his living off the table scraped of directing Suicide Squad and the 3rd GoTG. Also is the Luke Cage one a joke? Literally every Netflix Marvel show got canceled. The guys career is in no way over. Nor did he play a part in the cancellation. You really should atleast pretend to do some research

  24. In Monique's defense Amy Schumer is a joke stealing fake wannabe comedian. Not only have she built a career on real comedians jokes. She's not funny at all and does a horrible job retelling their jokes.

  25. Monique is still selling out concerts…..
    Nicki Minaj is in a slump but Cardi is not my cup of anything.

  26. Sean Penn … hates American culture, as he gets rich from it ..
    — promotes Venezuelan socialism. As it starves and kills it's own people …

  27. All pedowood pedos should be fired and never be hired again, investigated, and charged with everything for the longest possible, jail sentence.

  28. Nicki can’t provide a baby for the elite… that’s why they don’t want her anymore and she lost her spot. They tried to set her up with meek mill but it didn’t work.

  29. The fact that you can't tweet an opinion without losing your job is scary and we need to fucking stop doing it!! FREEDOM OF SPEECH YOU IDIOTS!

  30. The cast of Rosanne stabbed her in the back,because everyone but Goodman was broke and desperate for money,Goodman was just a scumbag

  31. Hahaha y'all really try to say cardi won against Nicki when cardi can't even sell out tickets going for $5 hahaha I'm done with YouTube 😆😆😂
