My choices would be Bill Cosby and John Kricfalusi.

Despise is too strong. More like, the respect has been chipped away. I despise them no more or less than I despise any random person I come across.

Bill Cosby sits at the top of that list, for obvious reasons.

Hulk Hogan probably comes next. His racist outburst made me to dig deeper into the wrestling world, where I discovered that a number of my childhood favorites had allegations of hard racism or bigotry against them … Ric Flair, Michael Hegstrand, Ultimate Warrior, Ole Anderson. Pretty much killed wrestling for me.

Denzel Washington is a recent addition. Not that I despise him or have lost respect, but his “The devil made him do it” response to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock put him in a different light. I respect that he’s religious, but people have self-agency.
