Everyone makes mistakes, even celebrities. Some celebs have killed people, others have said terrible things or broken the law in one way or another. Here are 15 celebs who you might have forgotten did something regrettable.


1. Eric Clapton

Clapton’s political views got him in trouble back in 1974 at a concert in Birmingham, England. He was allegedly drunk and made comments to the crowd spewing racial epithets and other hate speech. At the time he was a supporter of Enoch Powell, a British politician involved with the Conservative Party.

    Who did the research on the Vince Neil story? Razzle was the drummer, not bass “played” of Hanoi Rocks, not Saigon Kick

    Really? How could anyone care that Winston Churchill used mustard gas on German Nazi’s during WWII?

    Churchill did some really radical and controversial things in his lifetime.. But deciding to fight against Germany (a deadly technologically advanced superior army) while they invaded England, rather than surrender, was his bravest moment in office. The world would be a drastically different place today if “Germania” rose to conquer.

    Re Jobs — you’re WAY too nice in even that description. Woz DID THE WORK because Jobs couldn’t figure it out. He then lied to Woz about what he got paid. Jobs was an all-around scumbag in every facet of his life.

    Mandela doesn’t belong in this list. Using force against an oppressive government that understands nothing else isn’t what I would consider a horrible thing

    Another correction for the Vince Neil entry. I remember when that happened , and it was not in Hollywood. It happened on Esplanade in Redondo Beach, a street I’ve driven on countless times myself.
