4. Miley Cyrus, The Controversial Performer

Nowadays she along with her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth plans for a child adoption.
5. Kardashian In Scandals

For the first ever time, a mistake happened by Oscar fraternity. In 2017 Oscars, La La Land was announced as the Best Picture of The Year winner. But this was only before when it was announced that instead Moonlight is the winner. At that time, the La La team had been giving acceptance speech. Interrupting midway between their speech was one of the most embarrassing moments in the history of Academy Awards.
7. Hackers in Hollywood
Yes, multiple times, Hollywood celebrities have become a victim of these hackers. The Big iCloud Hack is not unknown to people. Some of the celebrities whose inappropriate images and videos were leaked include Demi Lovato, Emma Watson, Holly Willoughby, Amanda Seyfried, Rihanna, Scarlet Johannason and Jennifer Lawrence.

8. Whitewashing Time and Time Again
From 1960’s Breakfast At Tiffany’s to the most recent Ghost in The Shell, whitewashing is not new in Hollywood.

How can we forget the uproar caused when Tilda Swinton played The Ancient One in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
9. Nate Parker Accusations
Just when the actor-director was about to win worldwide acclaims for his film Birth of the Nation, he was confronted by his past. Reports said that he had been accused of raping a 19-year old college girl when she was unconscious. The girl eventually committed suicide and died. Though after Nate Parker’s acceptance speeches, many seem to have melted their hearts. There are equally mixed reactions to whether he has down casted the male community and also to whether he is growing as a human as he admits while accepting his assault deeds in the past.
10. Outcry Around LeFou
The million grossing blockbuster and retelling of Disney’s Oscar winning movie Beauty And The Beast sparked a controversy upon its release. The movie features a character LeFou who is shown to be gay. Though the character is featured in a little moment in the movie subplot, it is hugely criticised by politicians and critics alike. All the more, the movie has been banned in theatres of Russia and many other countries have banned it for young children.
Well, don’t drop your jaw. It happens. They’re humans too.
