We wanted to find out which celebrity endorsements left you feeling disillusioned and disappointed. Based on the results of an online forum poll, these 20 celebrities top of the list of the most disappointing endorsements.
Larry David – Crypto
“Larry David doing the crypto commercials during the Super Bowl last year… embarrassing.”
“He got sued for it.”
Dolly Parton – NFTs
“Dolly Parton advertising NFTs. Yuck.”
“Dolly has very good PR that heavily markets her towards younger gens. In reality, she had a confederate-themed restaurant and heavily underpays her theme park staff.”
Lupita Nyong’o – De Beers Jewelry
“Lupita Nyong’o for De Beers. 99% of other companies I would not have thought twice about her or anyone else getting paid to promote them, but the diamond industry has a centuries-long history of being horrible and I was disappointed to hear her become their ambassador.”
Mark Wahlberg – Ladbrokes Australia
“Any celebrity doing gambling ads in Australia. Australia has the highest gambling losses per capita in the world (40% higher than the second highest!) and 20% of the world’s slot machines despite having less than 1% of the world’s population (plus most of those slot machines aren’t in casinos). Anyone doing those ads is directly profiting from human misery. We even have gambling ads that literally target children! It’s disgusting.”
Lady Gaga – Top Gun Movie
“Lady Gaga doing the score & soundtrack for Top Gun and talking up Tom Cruise. I’m happy for her and all, but TC doesn’t believe in mental illness or treatment for it. Didn’t he talk about it on morning television once? Just one of the many facets of his bizarre cult.”
Ariana Grande – Better Help
“Any celeb promoting Better Help (Ariana…). They sell user data and underpay their therapists heavily. There are many other issues with it but actual therapists have discussed it a lot.”
Mayim Bialik – Nueriva
“Any celeb that peddles those pills ‘that help your brain,’ which are not proven to do anything. Those people are basically snake oil salesmen. I’m not a fan of Mayim Bialik anyway, but when I started to see her in those ads for Nueriva, my blood started to boil. She literally has a Bachelor’s degree from UCLA in neuroscience! She knows those pills are nonsense more than anyone! That’s bad enough, but then to go on the commercials and say ‘You can listen to me because I actually have a degree in neuroscience’ makes it so much worse.”
Holly Marie Combs – Monat Shampoo
“Maybe a bit niche but Holly Marie Combs shilling for pyramid scheme hair removal shampoo Monat was very disappointing. Especially with all the doubling down she did on Twitter.”
Green Day – Various
“I’m a Green Day stan and while they’ve done some stupid stuff over the years, I still cringe thinking about their Angry Birds game.”
“I’ve always wondered about their coffee [that] they swear is delicious, but I’m like, my dudes, hang it up.”
Robert DeNiro – Warburtons
“Robert DeNiro advertising Warburtons’ bagels in the UK, because they are not bagels, they are just round bread.”
“I have to have this conversation with my dad every week in Tesco.”
Jane Fonda – H&M Clothing
“Jane Fonda and H&M. Love her but it’s so hypocritical to promote their activewear range when she campaigns so heavily against these types of companies.”
Jennifer Coolidge – PETA
“I just saw a post from Jennifer Coolidge about her PETA support which just cemented how oblivious most celebrities apparently are. Don’t they have a PR team advising them on these things?”
Owen Wilson – Sofology
“Not so much disappointing as in I’m disappointed in them but Owen Wilson advertising a super budget sofa company in the UK is weird and a bit bleak.”
“I think he needs a lot of money to support his many children.”
Mary J. Blige – Burger King
“Mary J Blige passionately singing about BK’s crispy chicken – set my people back 50 years.”
“Mary J Blige and her Burger King commercial.”
Reese Witherspoon – NFT
“All of those NFT/Crypto/Metaverse endorsements, especially when they wrapped it in girl boss feminism.”
“cough Reese cough.”
Spike Lee – Crypto
“Spike Lee saying crypto was ‘for the people’ was rough.”
“Wearing the Lyle Lanley outfit too.”
Wayne Gretzky- BetMGM
“Wayne Gretzky doing BetMGM ads is SO disappointing. So many kids look up to him…”
“We [Australians] also have SUCH a huge gambling problem and so many celebrities only do the ads that air here.”
