9 – Josh Duggar
The oldest of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting brood, Josh Duggar was accused of child molestation. According to reports, Duggar fondled five young girls while he was a teenager. Instead of going immediately to the police, his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, first conferred with church elders and sent Josh to a family friend to help straighten him out. They didn’t tell police until more than a year later. In 2015, the news finally broke. Josh released a statement saying, “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
8 –Jared Fogle
In August 2015, Subway spokesman Jared Fogle pleaded guilty to having sex with minors (two teenage girls) and obtaining child pornography. The prosecutor in the case described it as a “five-year criminal scheme to exploit children,” and, thanks to a plea deal, it comes with a jail sentence of five to 12.5 years. In addition, Fogle agreed to pay $100,000 to each victim to help with counseling and support. Subway (obviously) ended their relationship with the famous pitchman.
7 –Bill Cosby
Bill Cosby, the lovable comedian and TV star, faced numerous accusations from women, many of whom were seeking career guidance, who claimed that he drugged and sexually assaulted them. The allegations reach back to the 1970s, with many surfacing in 2014. Cosby denied the allegations and refused to answer questions from reporters on the topic. Among the women who have accused Cosby is supermodel Janice Dickinson. Cosby, 77, has not been convicted (or even faced a judge) on any of the accusations, but his reputation has certainly suffered. Both Netflix and NBC postponed or cancelled projects with Cosby, and TV Land removed reruns of The Cosby Show from their lineup

Orange Is the New Black star Taryn Manning was accused of attacking her longtime makeup artist, Holly Hartman, on several occasions. Hartman claims that Manning headbutted her, sprayed Windex in her eyes and mouth, and whipped her with a wet towel. In the same outburst, Manning dared Hartman to stab her, yelling, “Pick a knife. I’m wearing a white shirt — there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning.” Ultimately, the restraining order was not granted on a technicality – Hartman filed it in California even though the attacks took place in NYC. Manning’s legal team said the accusations were false, and that Hartman was actually under investigation for stalking Manning.
3 – Emile Hirsch
On Monday August 17, 2015 actor Emile Hirsch pleaded guilty to assaulting a female employee of a Paramount Pictures subsidiary. Hirsch placed the female studio executive in a choke-hold and body-slammed her at a Sundace Film Festival event that happened earlier this year. Two people pulled Emile off of Daniele Bernfeld (the victim) while she was being attacked. Because the actor was intoxicated and doesn’t remember the event occurring, there is still no idea of what prompted the attack. Regardless of this, Hirsch will serve 15 days in jail. In addition to this, he will need to complete 50 hours of community service and pay a fine of $4,750.
