The Worst Fathers Of The Year


Now that Father’s Day has passed, we’re going to spare a moment for the bad fathers of the year.

Many famous fathers set terrible examples last year. Between alleged rapes, affairs, homophobic rants and embarrassing sexts, these dads have a lot to make up to their kids.

#7 Anthony Weiner

Although he's not a father yet, Weiner's sexting scandal managed to create a grim future relationship with his child.

#6 Christopher Lee

Congressman Chris Lee, aka the 'Craigslist Congressman,' posted pictures of himself on Craigslist shirtless, calling himself a 'very fit fun classy guy.' Not classy, and embarrassing for his kid.

#5 Brett Favre

Brett Favre's sexting scandal with Jenn Sterger was a huge embarrassment and terrible example for his kids, and his grandchild.

#4 DSK

Dominique Strauss Kahn allegedly raped a maid at a NYC hotel. DSK's daughter is a student at Columbia and took down her Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Scribd just a few days after the scandal hit.

#3 Charlie Sheen

Drugs, rants, profanity, violence, goddesses, need we say more?

#2 Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger failed to tell his children they had a half-sibling for more than 10 years. As for his child with Maria Baena, he didn't act as a father to him for more than 10 years.

#1 Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan recently went on a rant saying he would kill his son if he was gay. While he has since apologized, it's still a very harsh statement.

BONUS: Muammar al-Qaddafi

At least one of The Colonel's sons have been killed in the revolution against him. Check out 41 years in the life of Qaddafi >
