Debatable whether this guy's a celebrity, former or otherwise, but he's not threadworthy and I couldn't think of any place to put him other than here.
Greg Proops. Most of you may know him from the UK and US versions of Whose Line is it Anyway? or possibly as one half of the duo who voiced the two-headed podrace commentator in The Phantom Menace. I've seen him on Whose Line and Live a couple of times and he's a funny guy, no denying it.
The trouble is (and I'm sure this is a relatively recent development) he's one of the most self-loathing male feminists I've ever seen. I first noticed this when I went to see him do a live version of his podcast "Smartest Man in the World". Now, anyone who calls themselves "Smartest Man in the World" is probably full of shit and that definitely applies here. During the show he revealed that he's one of those people who think that men and women are separated by gender in sporting events because sexism/patriarchy, rather than because men are generally physically stronger than women. At the time, I thought this might be part of his act, but recently I decided to go to his twitter and it was quite a revelation.
For one thing he supports Hillary Clinton for no other reason than she's a woman and he wants to see a woman in power, despite trying to claim the contrary. This image really says it all.

And this is where the self-loathing really comes in. I found this quote from one of his books.

Hm... I thought feminism was about equality for both genders. Also, this is the kind of thing I would expect from a nice guy beta orbiter, not a 40-something man who's married.
The rest of his twitter is pretty much your typical SJW/white guilt garbage. I'll put some choice screengrabs in the spoiler below.
I think it's a shame such a talented comedian/improviser went full SJW, but hey, that's just the world we live in.
You forgot one thing, Chris follows Uri Geller.. So you can say he has at least one TRUE and HONEST believer out there.Uri Geller. The guy was a lolcow even when he was a celebrity. For those who aren't aware, Uri Geller was a magician who claimed that his tricks were the result of supernatural powers given to him by aliens. He specialized in spoon bending and mindreading. The thing is, his tricks were pathetic. I've seen small-time stage magicians do spoon bending and mindreading better than he does. It's one thing to claim supernatural powers if you're a good magician, but quite another when your tricks can be replicated by some doofus at home with a few household items. Despite this, he somehow managed to capture the imagination of the public and became very popular.
James Randi exposed his tricks many times over but he still kept doing them and people still believed he had supernatural abilities. This was despite an appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson where Carson managed to humiliate him on national television:
However, Geller's star did eventually fade and he was reduced to appearances on low-rent reality shows like I'm a Celebrity where he ended up coming last in the competition. In recent years he's claimed that he acted as a "Psychic Spy" for the CIA and was able to erase KGB floppy disks by saying the word "erase" over and over.
He also got trolled by a joke interview and chimped out. I don't know what's funnier - the chimpout, or the fact he was fooled into doing the interview in the first place.
James Randi was always great at that. He put up a million dollars just to lure in fraudsters so he could expose and humiliate them.I can bend spoons like Uri Geller. I use the same method, too. I grab them with my hands and bend them.
If James Randi did one good thing, it was mocking the fuck out of that tard and the lolcows who believed his bullshit.
Speaking of Sinead O'Connor...oh sorry, I meant "Shuhada".Oh , really? Last I heard, she went missing for a few hours or a day during a bike ride right around the time Prince died. Sounded like she was off some kind of medication she'd been taking. And I think at one point, she tried to start her own religion or something of the sorts, I can't be sure.
I think Sinead O'Connor is one of those people I feel sorry for. The issue of the child abuse scandals in the Church was something that needed to be addressed even back then (thanks in part to poor screening methods for Seminary back in the 60's through the 80's), but she did it in a way that totally undermined the message. She's since been vindicated on that front to be sure, but outside of her bitching at Miley Cyrus on Facebook, I don't think she even has a career any more at this point.
Actually, as it turns out he was telling the truth about the kidnapping thing. I didn't believe it either. He got sober years ago and lives a pretty quiet life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.And speaking of lolcows named Jeremy who peaked in the 90s, I present Jeremy London of Mallrats and Party of Five fame. He has more mugshots than headshots at this point. His peak lolcow moment was when he was "kidnapped" and apparently "forced" to do drugs at gunpoint. And naturally, he's yet another alum of Celebrity Rehab.
Well, I'll be damned. I still can't help but wonder just how he got into that situation in the first place, though.Actually, as it turns out he was telling the truth about the kidnapping thing.

Uhhhhh...links please? I know exactly who you're talking about and it may be hilarious as he was super smug on that show.Imho washed up comedian Ben Gleib has major cow potential. His only success was the tv show idiotest (which he attempted to be an antihost). Since falling out of the “spotlight” and having to resort to touring he has decided to run for president of the United States. His campaign is filled with memes and incorrect stats. He is stealing donation money and using it as a source of income. His page has become hateful banter and I think it is hilarious to watch.
Sorry if I posted on the wrong page, I just wanted to share his cow potential.
Dane Cook may be making a comeback.There's a lot of has-been celebrities who are now in lolcow territory or are at least bordering it.
Hell, some of them have threads on here.
Off the top of my head, these would be some of the more notable ones
