4. Chrissy Teigen

The pro-Biden celebrity made millions of dollars on her bubbly, likeable public image. But that all came crashing down when it was 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.

6. Chris Harrison of The Bachelor

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).
