After a few odd moments on his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West was admitted to the hospital, reportedly for psychiatric evaluation.

2. Stacey Dash

It was bad enough when Stacey Dash defended President-elect Trump, but then she called Jesse Williams a “plantation slave.” She also came for Mama Knowles over Kelly Rowland’s “Clueless” costume.

3. Raven-Symone


Raven-Symone should probably stop sharing her thoughts on controversial topics. For example, the TV personality shocked America with her recent comments about a young girl being abused by a cop. She then faced the wrath of social media.

4. Nate Parker

Nate Parker had to face his ugly past this year when fans and critics alike couldn’t get over his college rape accusation. To top it off, all the controversy impacted the “Birth of a Nation” box office numbers.

5. Hillary Clinton

As we all know, Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election. Enough said.

6. Tyga


We’d be here all day if we attempted to list all of Tyga’s problems in 2016, but the fact that he was hand-delivered a lawsuit on his birthday should say it all. Even his son King Cairo was Rob Kardashian for Halloween. Ouch.

7. Nick Gordon

Nick Gordon was found responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s death and ordered to pay $36 million as a result.

8. Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne

It’s been a tough year for Weezy. Besides his personal dispute with Birdman, the rapper said some pretty horrible things about the Black Lives Matter movement during a recent interview. Even T.I. responded to Wayne’s comments that BLM has nothing to do with him.

9. Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks

Ms. Banks had it pretty rough this year too. She caught a lot of flak after fans learned she’d been bleaching her skin, not to mention she rejoiced over Donald Trump’s presidential win. She also had to face a judge for a 2015 assault… and the list goes on and on.
