Casey Anthony tops a Nielson-sponsored ’10 Most Hated People’ poll


For those who are still raging over the Casey Anthony “not guilty” verdict that was delivered last month by a Floridian jury, a slight bit of catharsis (albeit no further justice) can be had in the news that Anthony has been voted to the top of a “Top 10 Most Hated People” poll. Of course this news will do nothing to settle the unrest aimed at the Anthony jurors, who fortunately have been spared the same dubious honor. C’mon, they were really only doing their jobs. Anyway and because I don’t want to freshly stir that pot, let’s get on with the rest of the list, shall we?

What do Casey Anthony, Spencer Pratt and Jon Gosselin have in common? A new poll suggests they’re the most hated people in America!

These public figures top findings by Nielsen subsidiary E-Poll Market Research, the New York Post reports. Joining them are famous names such as O.J. Simpson, Paris Hilton and ‘Octomom’ Nadya Suleman, all making way on the following top 10 list:

1. Casey Anthony
2. Spencer Pratt
3. Octomom
4. O.J. Simpson
5. Jon Gosselin
6. Levi Johnston
7. Jesse James
8. Paris Hilton
9. Heidi Fleiss
10. Howard Stern

“A lot of the folks on this list are people who are constantly in the news and have nonredeeming qualities,” Mary Ann Farrell, Senior Vice President of Research at E-Poll, says.

Okay, I completely understand why Anthony and Simpson are on this list because they’re basically cut out of the same legally-scandalous grain. Also truly reprehensible are Spencer Pratt (and his extremely expensive crystals) and Nadya “Octomom” Suleman because she’s a drain on the taxpayers and acts like such an entitled bitch concerning her own womb. People don’t like Levi Johnston because he’s a reprehensible, deadbeat famewhore and Jesse James because he cheated on and humiliated Sandra Bullock. Naturally, Paris Hilton’s entrance on this list is rather self-explanatory. As to Howard Stern, he loves to be hated, so he’ll probably feel like he accomplished something today. However, do people still care at all about Jon Gosselin or Heidi Fleiss? Their inclusion makes me wonder whether or not the company presented people with a list and asked them to pick which ones they hated the most instead of asking people to name their own suggestions. Pollsters can be so shady like that.

    And well-deserved, may I say. The Florida Department of Children and Families released their report on “responsibility” for Caylee’s death.

    Here’s the link to the article on CNN:

    Jon Gosselin but no Kate – some mistake surely? Hell, when he dies he’s going to be given a sainthood for putting up with the raging, egotistical c-word for so long without snapping her neck.

    Also Levi Johnston should be left off for similar reasons and Kris Jenner put in his place, though I’m guessing the sheer number of intolerable Kardashians would having split the voting!

  3. Chris says:

    Wut? No Lohan? Obviously the peeps from Celebitchy forgot to vote.

  4. Brittney says:

    I work for Nielsen and wish my job involved making lists like these… I have to admit, I’d come up with a similar list for people to shadily choose from. Paris Hilton wouldn’t be on it, though. I don’t like her (especially after meeting her), but she doesn’t deserve anywhere near the level of hatred that the other nine do. What has she ever done *to* anyone else? And if we’re talking DUIs, my God, Lohan should be just underneath Anthony and Simpson.

  5. Angie says:

    @ Tapioca…Agreed! Jon Gosselin? What the heck? Kate is the one who should be on that list, the loathsome witch.

  6. aenflex says:

    Let’s not give this trash anymore limelight or discussion, huh? I want to forget about this bitch so I can function.

  7. ladybert62 says:

    I am waiting for the day evil Casey makes her re-appearance and am waiting to see what will happen to her.

  8. lin234 says:

    Man, I just saw a video the other day on cnn about Casey living in a 5+ million dollar mansion in cali owned by one of her lawyers or something.

    Apparently, she’s been staging photo ops and the deal is she gets 75% (?) of the profits. It still makes me sick how a child-killer is going to make millions for killing her kid. So if you see a recent picture of her whether on TV or on any site change the channel, boycott the site. Don’t put money in this killer’s pocket.

    Kate Gosselin should be where Jon’s name is on that list. I believe if they never got the TV show he’s still be under her thumb and taking good care of the kids. It’s the fame and money that got to his head. As for Kate, her personality has always been consistent.

    When will it be before the kardashians get listed as most hated?

  9. Mata says:

    Yeah, I’d love to know how the poll was taken, too. Heidi Fleiss? Really?

  10. Catherine Keough says:

    Howard Stern!!!?? I love Howard Stern, he tells it like it is.

    Now if it said sleezeball Howard K. Stern, that I could get on board with.

  11. jover says:

    lin234 If that’s true she is truly evil and lawyers wonder why they are despised; winning and losing, nothing else, is their only aim (and I’ve worked in the legal profession for 15 yrs); she is an amoral narcissist, i never wish ill on someone but she may be the exception.

  12. ChelseaD says:

    What about Ah-nold? I’m also surprised that Lohan’s not on the list.

  13. Aqua says:

    I honestly thought that Dr.Conrad Murray might be on this list.Did he not make it because people may feel that Micheal Jackson might in some part be responsible for his own death? Or could it be that people are waiting to see what comes out at his trial?

  14. Amanda G says:

    Jon Gosselin? I would think Kate would be more hated. And where are the Palins? Or the Kardashians?

  15. Ruffian9 says:

    “glenn beck.”


  16. Venefica Delirium says:

    Casey Anthony definitely deserves it, but Heidi Fleiss? The woman is harmless, for god’s sake.

  17. parmeen says:

    It kills me when Howard Stern makes these lists. I’m a fan of the show. They often take to the street and ask people things like “Who’s more despicable? Adolph Hitler or Howard Stern?” and folks will actually say Howard!! Fans of the show know he’s one the sanest guys in media today.

  18. Str8Shooter says:

    Paris Hilton – 25W bulb in a 100W socket. But hated? Nah, she’s just an idiot.

    Take her out and replace with K(Hate) Gosselin. Nasty, vile human being.

  19. Eagleeye says:

    Nancy Grace should be #1 because she brain washes people into beleaving her completely made up lies about people
