20 Celebrities Get Forgiveness From The Audience After Committing Crimes

Even though you would think that everyone is treated equally by the law, there is one group that seems to get away with more than the rest of us in terms of legal justice. While celebrities are officially bound by the same laws as regular people, the penalties for breaking them seem far less severe. Famous people who are arrested go through the same booking process as everyone else, which is why there is a public collection of notorious celebrity mugshots.

The distinction is shown in court, where it appears affluent celebrities may commit crimes and escape with little repercussion. Celebs appear to receive treatment, community service, and anger management classes in situations where average people may face license suspension, hefty fines, and jail time. Some well-known persons who have committed major crimes, such as taking the lives of others, have either completed no jail time at all or substantially reduced sentences with unique privileges.

“Marcos Alonso, Chelsea footballer – drove drunk, speeding, crashed and killed a young woman.

He got a suspended sentence, a small fine, and a short driving ban.

There’s a reason rival football fans chant “Marcos Alonso, you know what you did!””

2. Steven Tyler

From ohvaez

“Steven Tyler convinced the parents of a 14 year old groupie to sign over her guardian rights to him, essentially adopting her and then dating her at the same time. But wait, there’s more…he eventually gets her pregnant and then forces her to get an abortion.

I don’t know if any criminal action was taken against him, but it’s still super messed up.

Edit: I’ve been told that she was 16 years old and not 14. I’ve since googled it and seen both ages listed in several place so I’m not sure at what age it all happened. Not that being 16 makes it better, this edit is for the sake of having correct information.”

“Karl Malone impregnated a 13 year old at the age of 20. Also refused to pay 125 dollars a week in child support, though I’m not sure if it was this child or from another woman but most people still just remeber him as being the mailman from the 90s.”

7. Chris Brown

“Chris Brown not only beat but strangled Rihanna while threatening to kill her and he still sells out entire stadiums.”

8. Roman Polanski

“Roman Polanski fucking kids and not being allowed in the US due to an outstanding arrest warrant for fucking kids? He was applauded at the academy a few years back.”

9. Tekashi 69

“Takeshi 69 doing some disgusting shit with a kid and somehow got out of prison soon after and going straight back to making music and even collaborating with other rappers.

Yet the only problem I hear people say about him is he “snitched”. Gotta love the priorities”

10. Salman Khan

“Indian superstar Salman Khan has hit and run charges, killed endangered animals and has ruined the career of his ex girlfriend’s new boyfriend.

He got acquitted from all the trials, makes one character cleansing film a year and people forget who he is.

Edit: woke up to this, thanks for the award guys. Its my first one”

11. Danny Way

idk if he is relevant anymore, but still how that case went makes my blood boil”

15. Kirk Douglas

From KidsTheseDaysYknow

“Kirk Douglas (probably) raped a 14-year-old Natalie Wood. Her mother apparently told her to hush it up. He also (possibly) murdered an old girlfriend. They never found her body.”

16. Dr. Dre

From Pontus_Pilates

“Dr. Dre’s history of abuse is often overlooked and people just admire his money.”

17. Tom Cruise

“Tom Cruise uses slave labor provided by the Church of Scientology to take care of his personal needs and has never once faced legal repercussions for human trafficking nor wage theft.”

18. Ted Nugent

From [deleted] 

“Ted Nugent adopted an underage girl so he could have sex with her So did Steven Tyler And if we want to talk about right now Kanye is literally stalking and harassing his ex wife and threatening her new Boyfriend live every single day and people love the fuck out of him and he is as popular as ever. This is actually a phenomenon that they talked about in reference to Michael Jackson.

People have “good feelings” surrounding these celebrities and accepting that they did horrific things messes with their minds because it taints happy memories. I mean people still love Cosby because he was “America’s Dad”. It is no something that is going to change because most people aren’t self aware enough to realize it is happening.”

19. Ben Roethlisberger

Source: Getty Images

“Pretty sure Ben Roethlisberger raped a woman in a bathroom.”

“You’re wrong. He raped TWO women.”

20. Amy Schumer

“Amy Schumer admitted to raping a guy.”

“·Not only that, she does a bit about it in her stand-up.”
