The Biggest Scandals Of 2017 That We Still Can't Believe Happened
It seems like this year went from bad to worse in Hollywood with some of the most shocking scandals coming to light.
Here are some of the most insane headlines of 2017...
kendall jenner's pepsi commercial
ICYMI here is the commercial, but how could you forget the biggest advertisement fail of the year? The commercial was dragged for stealing imagery from the Black Lives Matter movement and not making any significant or meaningful ties to it. The ad was pulled in a hot second after negative and racial criticisms were made while Pepsi released a statement to defend their choices and apologising on behalf of Kendall Jenner, which seemed to make things worse. As the face of the ad, Kendall ended up making a public statement on the new season of KUWTK.
kathy griffin's trump photoshoot
In May, Kathy Griffin posted an image of herself holding the decapitated head of 'Donald Trump'. The graphic image received serious backlash and Griffin was forced to publicly apologise, especially after Trump's young son was traumatised by it. As a result of the comedian was investigated by the Secret Service as a potential threat and lost future jobs including her long term tie with CNN.
kim kardashian black face scandal
Despite the release of Kim Kardashian's KKW beauty line being extremely successful, the promo image received major criticism for allegedly darkening Kim's skin. The internet was quick to accuse her of 'black face' as the image seems to depict her several tones darker than her natural skin colour.
usher was sued for not telling a sexual partner he had herpes
The ongoing court case drama that had us on the edge of our seats. TMZ reported that earlier this year Usher had neglected to tell a woman he had sexual encounters with that he carried the herpes virus. The Burn singer was sued for $20 million for negligence, battery and emotional distress. After months of battling the case was dismissed in November for reasons that are still unclear.
The la la land and moonlight mixup at the Oscars
The most coveted award at the Oscars had a huge mixup this year. After La La Land was announced Best Picture and all the cast and crew were on stage to accept the award they were awkwardly cut short to find out that the wrong envelope had been read out and Moonlight was the best film. Everyone was completely professional about the situation, but the awkwardness could be felt worldwide.
jay-z admits he cheated on beyonce
Though we knew this was the case since the release of Beyonce's album Lemonade, and loosely apologetic lyrics in his response album 4:44, we have never heard Jay-z public speak about his infidelities. In a recent interview with New York Times, the rapper did in fact confirm it saying, "You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode what happen?... In my case, like it's, it's deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity."
louis tomlinson fighting paparazzi and fans
Louis Tomlinson was arrested in March for a physical altercation at the LAX airport. The ex-One Direction member asked paparazzi and fans to stop filming him and GF Eleanor Calder before it got physical and a brawl ensued. There were no charges pressed against Tomlinson, but the internet still has the insane video of the bashdown. If you haven't seen it, check out the video here.
justin bieber hitting paparazzi with his car
Justin Bieber was caught in an accident earlier this year where he allegedly hit a photographer while leaving a Hillsong Church in LA. when all of a sudden a paparazzi was on the ground. Justin made sure the guy was alright and no one was charged for the incident, but it's still a bit of a shock to watch.
taylor swift's LWYMMD feuds
The song, the response, the clapback that the whole world was waiting for. Taylor Swift's first song on her Reputation album, Look What You Made Me Do, was one of the most anticipated songs of 2017. The music video made reference to many feuds such as her baff with Apple Music, drama with Kanye West, and nods to previous boyfriends. Taylor definitely spilled the tea and we were drinking it up.
Celebs party in the met galas bathrooms
This sure got the NYC Department of Health fuming. At the Met Gala in May, celebrities were photographed lighting up in the bathrooms. Stars included Bella Hadid, Dakota Johnson, Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs. Although it looked like a great time in there, members of the Met board were "insulted" by the celebs behaviour.
blac chyna sue the entire kardashian klan
Go big or go home apparently. In October 2017, Blac Chyna filed a law suit against all the Kardashian family for claims for assault, domestic violence and interference with prospective economic relation. Seems like Chyna has cooled it a bit, as a month later she retracted Kylie, Kendall, Khloe and Kourtney from her list.
Harvey Weinstein sexually harassing everyone in Hollywood
Probably the biggest scandal of the year are the sexual harassment allegations made against film producer Harvey Weinstein. After being published in the New York Times women have been coming out and talking openly about their disturbing experiences with the Hollywood bigshot. Since then over 100 instances of alleged sexual abuse against Weinstein have come out.
As a result of this, victims of sexual harassment in Hollywood are starting to speak out. People such as Kevin Spacey (House of Cards), Danny Masterson (That 70s show), Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl), Louis C.K. and most recently Matt Lauer (The Today Show) have all been accused of sexual misconduct.
