It’s never been more dangerous to be a celebrity. With cancel culture in full swing, one clumsy social media post or one drunken mistake can condemn your career before it’s even begun.
From Keri Hilson blaming COVID-19 on 5G, to Ryan Reynolds apologising for having a plantation wedding, the data team at CasinoHex decided to track every single public celebrity apology that’s been published on the Internet, to find the most scandalous celebs.
With regards to what celebrities are apologising for, the data shows comments and actions relating to insensitivities over racial issues (25%) and insults (26%) dominate. This is followed by offensive comments relating to mental health issues (14%) and the LGBT community (12%).
