It’s no secret that Ariana Grande’s favor with the media and with the public took a hit during doughnut-gate, and when she called America “disgusting,” despite her apology. Q Scores is a company that polls Americans on their opinions about everything from brands to celebrities and they have just released their latest round of data.
The biannually collected Q Scores detail both how liked or popular a celebrity is as well as how disliked a celebrity is with their negative rating scores. In light of the new polls, The Hollywood Reporter has taken the scores and compared them with previous scores to compile their own report of the top 10 biggest celebrity falls from grace. Simply put, they found out what celebrities faced the biggest drop in popularity from 2013 until now.
From Real Housewives to athletes to musicians, no one is exempt from public opinion. While it’s no surprise that Ariana Grande nabbed such a high spot in light of recent events, there will undoubtedly be an astounding consensus that the least up-popular celebrity has absolutely earned their spot at the bottom. Check out the full list below.

Despite women coming forward to tell their stories against the famed comedian and subsequently being ignored, the blunt words of Hannibal Buress finally grabbed the world’s attention of the numerous rape allegations. Following the release of a 2005 deposition where Cosby admitted to using drugs to have sex with women, an eye-grabbing, jaw-dropping cover from New York Magazine put the comedian’s victims on full display with a powerful image as the cover for last month’s issue. As the issue went to press and more victims were given a platform for their voice and their stories to be heard, the comedian’s stance has plummeted with even early allies and supporters caving to the overwhelming evidence of so much wrongdoing. Joey Bada$$’ vote of confidence didn’t count for much.
