You’d think fame and success would bring nothing but adoration, but as we’ve heard from countless youngins on social media, it actually brings out the haters! Man, we wanted so badly to spell haters with a “z.” Next time. Success has a way of revealing a “crabs in the bucket” mentality. When one crab tries to climb to the top, the others pull him down as if to say, “Oh, you think you’re so special, huh? Like you deserve to escape?! Get back down here with the rest of us!” You don’t even need a lid on a crab bucket… It’s fascinating. 

And yes, that analogy is solid for all of us normies, but can the same be said for rich and powerful crabs? Maybe they just have a sexier, bejeweled bucket, because as we recently found out, they’re also out to tear each other down. Fortunately for us, their stature makes it newsworthy, so we got to witness 13 of the most unbearably brutal, devastating public burns of all time.
