The tragic irony {of 1} of Hollywood’s most avid anti-gun activists {evoking the} shooting death of a colleague may sound too far-fetched for a screenplay. {But such was {the full|the entire} case with Baldwin,} {who was simply} a staunch anti-Second Amendment activist who repeatedly condemned the NRA .

The anti-Trump rapper is facing an exodus of business partners and sponsors who {no more} wish to be {from the} star, including the {Dior and anheuser-busch brands.}

4. Chrissy Teigen

The pro-Biden celebrity made {huge amount of money} {on her behalf} bubbly, likeable public image. But {that} came crashing down when {it had been} revealed it was just a facade and that she was in fact a mean-spirited cyberbully who had mercilessly hounded and even wished death upon her perceived rivals.

Noth, who backed Joe Biden’s bid for the White House, has denied allegations of rape and sexual assault, saying his encounters with his accusers were consensual. But that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from running for cover. CBS dropped him from its drama series The Equalizer and his talent agency no longer represents him.

6. Chris Harrison of The Bachelor

The long-time host of ABC’s The Bachelor learned the hard way that there’s no appeasing the left-wing cancel mob. {The affable TV personality lost his job for expressing empathy for contestant Rachael Kirkconnell merely,} who faced unfounded accusations that {she actually is} racist because she participated in an antebellum-themed fraternity event when she was in college.

Harrison apologized for not condemning Kirkconnell first,} but that wasn’t enough {therefore} he {continued} hiatus.

7. Armie Hammer

He had {everything} – looks, money, stardom. {He was woke even,} declaring {police} in the U.S. to be “ inherently racist ” and publicly bashing then-President Donald Trump. But his Hollywood career self-destructed following lurid accusations of sexual abuse and rape.

Hammer lost theater and movie roles and was dropped by his talent agency,} the powerful WME. As persona non grata in Hollywood, he even saw movies {he previously} shot {before the} scandal being shelved indefinitely. ({One of these}, Death on the Nile , will finally be released next year).
