On May 29, 2020, after former Glee co-star Samantha Ware publicly supported the Black Lives Matter movement on social media, Ware tweeted: LOL REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE MY FIRST TV JOB A TRAGIC EXPERIENCE?!?! Because I won't soon forget it. I understand that you spread rumors about your desire to "sh*t in my wig!" and other traumatic microaggressions that caused me to doubt pursuing a career in Hollywood.

Tucker Carlson, a Fox News personality, was caught on tape criticizing immigration, the Iraqi people, and the Obamas in March 2019. The clips originate from a 2006–2011 interview with radio personality "Bubba the Love Sponge." Media Matters reportedly released the recordings and demanded an apology from Carlson. Still, the host refused, telling viewers that "the left's major purpose" is to "control what you believe," as reported by Business Insider.

3. Liam Neeson

While he didn't know the man's identity, Liam Neeson said in a promotional interview with The Independent for his upcoming film Cold Pursuit that he once "roamed the streets" in search of the "Black b*stard" who had assaulted someone close to him. Neeson sighs, "When I consider how awful that was, I want to cry. I'm telling a journalist something I've never told anyone else. No, please."

4. Roseanne Barr

On May 29, 2018, Roseanne Barr tweeted a racially insensitive message regarding former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, who is Black. If the "muslim brotherhood" and "planet of the apes" had a kid, it would be "vj," Barr tweeted. Twitter users were enraged, and her colleagues and superiors began taking action some hours later.

5. Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne, co-host of "The View," had some not-so-PC things to say in reaction to GOP presidential contender Donald Trump's extremely bigoted stance on immigration. By asking, "If you kick every Mexican out of this nation, then who will be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?" Osbourne was likely trying to refute the politician.

6. Hulk Hogan

As court records revealed that Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) had made harsh racial slurs, he was demoted from his former superstar status in the WWE. Hogan's case against Gawker.com includes these transcripts, which were delivered to a court in Florida. Several of them are taken from a sex tape Hogan recorded with the wife of Tampa shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge Clem. They include Hogan talking openly about his daughter's connection with a "Black millionaire."

7. Justin Bieber

In this scene, which was shot in Los Angeles in 2011 for Never Say Never, Bieber is hanging out with some pals. It's clear that Bieber's pal is telling him not to complete the joke in the background as he sets the scene for the joke, but Bieber still manages to crack a grin and deliver the punchline.
Beliebers, Bieber's devoted followers, flooded his Twitter feed with criticism. A supporter commented, "Bieber is very repulsive. This moment, man has exceeded his bounds." Another online: "There is no justification for bigotry towards Bieber. Racism is too serious to ever be amusing, and so is the usage of the N-word."
