27 Celebrities Who Give People Bad Vibes

It starts with a feeling.

An icky feeling that creeps up and settles in your gut. This is not a good person, you say to yourself.

It could be towards a potential romantic partner, a stranger you meet on the street, or even a celebrity.

People have a lot of thoughts about the latter, mainly bad. Here are 19 celebs who give people allll the bad vibes.


The rapper's close friendships with Milly Bobby Brown and Billie Eilish have rubbed some people the wrong way.

People felt that it was super inappropriate when a then-14-year-old Millie said that Drake gave her guy advice...

Gwyneth Paltrow

Maybe we wouldn't think she was so pretentious if she didn't give us so many things to roll our eyes at!

A lot of this comes from her lifestyle website, Goop, where she recommends her readers purchase ridiculous items, like a $15,000 vibrator.

Christina Aguilera

"This isn’t a vibe; it is real. I met her at a meet and greet when I was 10 years old because of my Make-A-Wish wish (Backstreet Boys weren’t available). I was a sick kid, looked very physically sick, and she took one look at me up and down, made an 'ew' face, but quickly faked a smile for the camera. She’s a grade A [expletive]."

Jared Leto

The actor and singer went from being super down-to-earth to super pretentious and acting like he's the leader of a cult or the next coming of Christ.

"Following his career was like watching someone descend into madness," one Redditor wrote.

Tom Cruise

"Christian Bale said he based his performance as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho on the impression he got of Tom Cruise after meeting him. Really makes you think about what Tom Cruise must be like." -u/tkcool73

Elisabeth Moss

Oh, Elisabeth. There's just something so sinister about her starring in The Handmaids Tale when she's a member of Scientology.

The show is basically about a cult where women are forced into having sex for reproduction and nothing else.

Mark Zuckerberg

"I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but if someone told me he was a lizard man in a skin suit I would just accept it as fact. Or a sentient lampshade. Guy is creepy as hell, and just about the epitome of psychopath." - u/tsavong117

Dj Khaled

Remember when he was the hottest thing on Snapchat? People tuned in daily to learn his "major keys" about success. Well, that ship has sailed, as people find the DJ extremely inauthentic and fame-hungry now.


"Super creepy dude. Kept hitting on my photographer even after she declined him multiple times and said she had a kid and a man. After he left someone from his team gave her a hotel room key which she threw away." - u/hunteqthemighty

Nicki Minaj

There's nothing glamorous about Nicki being accused of harassing the woman her husband allegedly sexually harassed many years ago.

On top of that, she has a history of going after other female artists who threaten her success.

Joel Osteen

"That fake-ass smile, the way he moves, nevermind what he's trying to sell. He's a [expletive] backstabbing predator. Every time I see that mans face I have the overwhelming urge to punch it with a brick." - u/xJD88x

Armie Hammer

Even before the cannibal scandals broke, people didn't have a good vibe about him. He fit the role of bad characters too well, both in Gossip Girl and in Call Me By Your Name.

Ellen DeGeneres

"I always noticed how often she would say 'that's hilarious,' with absolutely no change in facial expression or tone and found it super annoying. Like don't lie about it if you clearly don't find it funny." - u/kallan0100

Jay-Z and Beyoncé

Many find this power couple to be incredibly overrated. And if you try to say you don't like them out loud, people will gasp!

One Redditor finds them to be the Bill/Hillary Clinton of the music industry. Just overly produced.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

"Something about their uber-progressive personas, paired with obvious obliviousness of the alienating nature of their celebrity and wealth, doesn’t sit right." - u/bookboi96. Chrissy's recent bullying scandal certainly didn't help matters...

James Charles

It's hard to overlook the makeup mogul sexting scandals with underage boys... That, James, was not a good look.

People also find it incredibly annoying when they hear his high-pitched voice say, "Hi Sisters!"

Steve Harvey

"I couldn't stomach the whole 'Act like a lady think like a man' phase. I couldn't not stand people taking relationship advice from someone who had been married 3 times, currently to his mistress. All of it was so misogynistic. People gobbled that up." - u/Zoranealsequence

James Franco

People's bad feelings about the odd celeb were confirmed when rape and sexual assault allegations against him came out.

One Redditor suspected that he was a creep ever since the first Spiderman movie came out.

Olivia Munn

"I used to feel bad for strongly disliking her based on a vibe, but after listening to her on Whitney cumming’s podcast, it felt more justified. She had an unhealthy fascination with John Mulaney that she tried (and failed) to pull off as an attempt to be friends with both him and his wife." - u/imwearingredsocks

Dr. Phil

As Reddit user Anns_ is quick to point out, Dr. Phil isn't even a real doctor — at least not an M.D.. All he does on his show is provoke and stir the pot, exploiting his guests for his own personal gain.

Jake Paul

Jake Paul isn't famous, so much as he's become infamous. His whole shtick has the boxing world (and the sports world at large) literally waiting on pins and needles for someone to come along and finally knock this joker out.

John Travolta

John Travolta has made his association with the Church of Scientology known all throughout Hollywood. This former A-lister has been mired in controversy for years and has become as close to a pariah as one can be, while still maintaining an air of celebrity.

Shia LaBeouf

Shia has had very public struggles with drugs, alcohol, and allegations of abuse. He's been in and out of rehab, jail, and everywhere in-between. While there's no denying his talent as an actor, he seems truly incapable of getting out of his own way.

Marilyn Manson

For the bulk of Marilyn Manson's career, he's been the poster boy for shock, perversion, and the depraved. The recent reports of his alleged sexual assault against Evan Rachel Wood only serve to bolster the public's already negative perception of him.

Kristen Stewart

It seems that no matter how much time passes, the public at large still is hesitant to forgive Kristen's infidelity toward Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson. That, and her painfully awkward behavior just seems to give people a bad impression.

Simon Cowell

According to one Reddit user, Simon Cowell is atop the bad vibes list. They said, "I mean it's pretty much a given at this point that he's a soulless eel of a man, but I reckon there's so much more that we couldn't begin to imagine."

Elon Musk

Most people can't seem to make heads or tails of Tesla founder Elon Musk. There are those who believe him to be a comic book supervillain, and then there are those who believe he's actually an alien sent from outer space. No matter how you splice it, the outcome isn't good.
