Videos That Ruined Celebrity Careers

Pop princess Ariana Grande incited public outrage last week when she was filmed licking a display tray of donuts at California shop Wolfee Donuts. Absurdly, the minute-long video goes on to capture Grande kiss a background dancer and declare her hatred for America and its people. After a heartfelt apology, however, it seems Grande may soon return to her pop-culture throne.


However, similar celebrity scandals have been met with less public understanding. In light of this donut-licking-America-hating scandal, we take a look back through the most viral of celebrity faux-pas.
