2. Ezra Miller
There are conflicting beliefs about Ezra Miller. While many acknowledge that they canceled themself with the allegations of grooming a minor, their violent outbursts, and arrests, others defended him.

4. Anthony Weiner
Anthony Weiner lost his job in Congress because he sent pictures of his junk while married to a minor.
