5 People Who Made Us Say “Aw HELL Naw!” This Week

It’s the end of the week, so it’s time to unwind, prepare for the weekend, and take a tally of who managed to piss us off the most throughout the course of the past seven days!

It wasn’t an easy task, but here are a few of the contenders. Also included are proposed punishments for their crimes against humanity.

1. Hugh Grant

During Thursday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live!, Hugh Grant made an appearance to promote his upcoming film (although, let’s be real, it’s MERY STREEP’S upcoming film), Florence Foster Jenkins.  During the interview, host Andy Cohen asked Grant about several of his previous female costars (Cohen also held up photos of the actresses, since Grant has apparently developed amnesia and/or cannot be bothered to remember women that he works with).

Andy: Who’s the most down to earth of those women?

Hugh: Down to earth? That’s pushing it. Who’s the one second from the right?

Andy: Second from the right is Renee [Zellweger].

Hugh: Oh, Renee! Not exactly down to earth. Out to lunch. I guess…Sarah Jessica.

So, essentially, Hugh pretended he could not recognize former costar Renee Zellweger, then called her batshit crazy.

But, at least Sarah Jessica Parker got the consolation prize of being “down to earth … I guess”!

Proposed punishment: Having to identify all of the women he’s slept with by first and last name. Also, being forced to do that dance from Love, Actually every time he enters a room.

2. Whoever this man is.

I’m not sure who this tangerine-tinted guy is? He looks incredibly familiar, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how I know him. Was he on Millionaire Matchmaker, maybe? Who knows.

Either way, he seems to have done quite a bit of yelling this week, and may have actually encouraged people who disagreed with Hillary Clinton to assassinate her.

Oh, and he also said President Obama was the “founder of ISIS.”


Proposed punishment: No tanning beds for a week.

3. Jared Leto.

Look, Jordan Catalano was very handsome and an important part of our youthful sexual awakenings. However, that does not excuse the fact that Jared Leto has proven himself to be categorically douche-y, particularly where his recently released film, Suicide Squad, is concerned.

Leto has publicly distanced himself from the film and its dismal reviews, stating that “has not very much to do with me.” (Way to stick up for your movie there, Jared.)

Apparently, Leto was also a notorious asshole during filming, yelling at extras and sexually harassing actresses, all while justifying his behavior as “method acting.”

Which is funny, since he may have also essentially ruined method acting for modern audiences — but that’s merely a minor detail.

Sorry, Jared. You fine, but you crazy.

Proposed punishment: Taking away all of his Gucci suits.

4. These Fox News guests.

In the grand tradition of Fox News, two white guys debated one another about an issue that actually concerns neither of them: the “trend” of female athletes wearing makeup.

During a recent episode of Fox News’ Sports Court, host Tamara Holder stated “Female Olympians are sexing it up more than ever by wearing makeup during their competitions …Do women who are elite athletes need to wear makeup to feel stronger, or is it simply a fashion statement?”

She then turned to guests Bo Dietl and Mark Simone (a former NYPD detective and a radio host, respectively) to tackle the “issue” (are we really being that fluid with our definition of the word “issue” now?).

I’ll spare you the details of what ensued, but, suffice it to say, it included the phrases “I think when you see an athlete, why should I have to look at some chick’s zits?” and “I like to see a person who wins that gold medal go up there and look beautiful.”

That’s all. You may go throw up now.

Proposed punishment: Having to conduct 1,000 makeup tutorials on YouTube.

5. Whoever came up with the new Swedish Fish Oreos

Honestly, if I wanted to experience self-loathing, I would just buy a pack of regular Oreos and eat it in one sitting. There is NO NEED to involve what some might (correctly) consider to be the worst candy of all time.

These cookies are only geared towards people who have tried Swedish Fish and thought “Mmm! What a delicious flavor! They should find a way to incorporate this flavor into other products!”

So, if you’re one of those five people, enjoy.

Otherwise, stay the fuck away.

Proposed punishment: Having to actually eat a Swedish Fish Oreo.
