  1. Michael Richards from Sienfeld. In 2006, a video was published of him going on a racist tirade against hecklers while performing at the Laugh Factory. His career never recovered.

  2. Elon Musk tweeting out that the rescue diver for the Thai cave rescue was a pedophile. To me that was the start of his weird bad publicity.

  3. Gerald Ratner

    at one time ‘Ratners’ were a nationwide chain of jewelry shops in the UK, they were known as an ‘affordable’ jewelry shop.

    In 1991 he was a guest at the ‘Institute of Directors’ and made a speech where he called the stuff sold by his shops, ‘total Crap’. A popular range of earrings was described as being cheaper than a prawn sandwich and compounded it by saying the prawn sandwich would last longer.

    shares in the company dropped like a stone and he was fired by the majority company shareholders

  4. well, I had been very successful at my work until I jumped up on a table at the Christmas party and whipped out my cock and yelled, “Suck my cock!”

    things changed after that

  5. CDPR. Put out some of the best, most well-regarded games for an entire generation. Then mis-managed and rushed Cyberpunk out the door, and they’re no longer the company that made The Witcher, now they’re the company that fucked up Cyberpunk.
