Respected Historical Figures Who Were Actually Terrible People

Nobody’s perfect, but some people aren’t even
close. This includes some of the most beloved figures
in all of history — they look great at first glance, but a closer look reveals the deeply
flawed, kinda terrible people they really were. Gandhi Mahatma Gandhi, probably one the ten most
peaceful men of all time, had a much bigger problem than the British ruling India. According to Gandhi biographer Jad Adams,
Gandhi was actually an addict — he even left his dying father’s side just to make love with his wife. He was fifteen at the time, she was sixteen,
and the grief of abandoning his father caused him to abandon “lustful love” forever. Kind of. “It is time you left.” At age 38, he took an official vow of chastity,
but regularly tested it in unusual, creep-tastic ways. His preferred method was to sleep alongside
women while naked. That might sound to you very unchaste, and
you’d be right. He was a middle-aged man sleeping in the buff
with girls half his age — sometimes more than one girl at a time even. “You dog!” Of course, this behavior wasn’t acceptable
for anyone else — in his mind, every Indian should practice strict chastity, to the point
of never marrying. If they must marry, they should never make love with their spouses. His married followers, meanwhile, were segregated
on his compounds, told to never make love, and should take cold baths if ever they feel
their mojo rising. That’s the real Gandhi — great for Indian
independence, bad for keeping the young women in your life company. Mother Teresa It’s borderline blasphemous to criticize Mother
Teresa, who became Saint Teresa in 2016. No one did more to help the poor and the sick,
right? Well, not quite. According to reports, Mother Teresa’s true
motives were actually kind of selfish, with less focus on helping people, and more on
boosting the numbers for her own religion. “Right from the very beginning, I wanted to
serve the poor purely for the love of God.” Mother Teresa’s missions rarely actually helped
poor, sick people become healthy. In fact, most of these places were dirty,
short on doctors, low on food, and largely bereft of medicine. Nevertheless, Teresa found the suffering beautiful,
like it was making the world a better, holier place. We know this because she said it herself. “There is something beautiful in seeing the
poor accept their lot, to suffer it like Christ’s Passion. The world gains much from their suffering.” Naturally, this didn’t apply to Teresa herself,
who received ample medical treatment when she needed it. “Nothing further, your Honor.” Winston Churchill We all know Winston Churchill for his efforts
in fighting Germany during World War II. But as it turns out, he was a white supremacist
who had way more in common with his enemies than history wants to let on. “We are the chosen few.” According to Richard Toye’s book Churchill’s
Empire, young Churchill took part in what he called “a lot of jolly little wars against
barbarous peoples” in Africa. He believed Africans were violent against
the British not because the Brits were invading their land, but because they had a, quote,
“strong aboriginal propensity to slay.” Later, when he joined Parliament, Churchill
advocated more war against minorities, claiming that “…the Aryan stock is bound to triumph.” Of the Kurds, who tried to gain independence
from Britain, he said “I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized
tribes … [it] would spread a lively terror.” Jolly little wars, a lively terror — who
knew Churchill spoke exactly like a 1980s cartoon villain? “Oh no, Thundercats. I am not so easily disposed of!” Churchill also wasn’t a fan of Gandhi’s effort
to rid India of British rule, admitting, “I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion.” He didn’t mellow out as he got older either. In 1943, in between rousing speeches about
never surrendering, he refused to help India survive a severe famine that ultimately slayed
around 3 million people. Churchill blamed the Indians, saying it was
all their fault for “breeding like rabbits.” No wonder President Obama didn’t want that
man’s bust in the White House. “All of you will be damned. There is no place in heaven for you.” Steve Jobs If you own anything Apple aside from an actual
apple, you owe a debt of gratitude to Steve Jobs. That said, he probably shouldn’t be put on
the lofty pedestal he so often is. He was ruthless. According to the documentary Steve Jobs: The
Man in the Machine, Jobs was basically a jerk through and through. He fathered a daughter, but denied she was
his, so she didn’t see him for years. “Well, after the paternity test he then pays
for her schooling and upbringing.” He also contracted Apple with Chinese factories,
whose conditions were so bad they drove the workers to exhaustion — several wound up
taking their lives over the breakneck pace they were expected to churn out iPads and
iPhones, among other devices. “They run to the press and tell the story
about oppression and it gets written up and they get their fifteen minutes of fame.” Speaking of the iPhone, a prototype model
once went missing, and a journalist returned it to Jobs. Rather than be grateful, Jobs instead had
the journalist’s home raided, and his files and computers were all confiscated in the
process. “You can please some of the people some of
the time.” No word on whether any backup turtlenecks
were lifted during the raid. Walt Disney He created Mickey Mouse! How bad could Walt Disney really be? Plenty bad, as it turns out. He was more Wicked Witch than Snow White. As Neal Gabler exposed in his biography Walt
Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination, Walt had a dark side, and not just because
he let Song of the South happen. “HUH?” He was reportedly the kind of person to refer
to the Seven Dwarves as a “n-word pile,” which isn’t just terrible, it doesn’t make any sense. He also used terms like “pickaninny” in meetings,
which was an old-timey, and offensive, term for black children. Then there was his issue with women. As Ward Kimball, one of Disney’s associates,
said, “He didn’t trust women or cats.” “Keep the faith sweetheart.” In a letter Disney sent a woman named Mary
Ford, who wanted work as an animator, he confirmed that suspicion by rejecting her outright simply
because of her gender. In a letter, he wrote, “Women do not do any
of the creative work … as that work is performed entirely by young men. For this reason, girls are not considered
for the training school.” Snow White and the Seven Dwarves appear on
the letterhead, almost like they’re mocking her for her silly woman chutzpah. “Woooh!” Caravaggio He may have been a highly respected Renaissance
artist, but Caravaggio was also a maniac. A 2002 expose revealed why it was that Caravaggio
slayed a man named Ranuccio Tomassoni. It’s been long accepted that Caravaggio slayed
Tomassoni in 1606, but most thought it was due to an argument over a tennis match. According to new evidence, however, the issue
wasn’t Caravaggio being a bad sport — it was a woman. Specifically, a prostitute. Apparently, Caravaggio had a woman named Fillide
Melandroni over for a painting session, and fell for her. Problem was, Tomassoni was her pimp, and Caravaggio
took umbrage to this. He felt inclined to fight for her honor, which
meant castrating Tomassoni. “Agh, that was way harsh Tai.” The problem, as it turned out, was that Caravaggio’s
steady painting hand wasn’t very good at castration, and he severed his opponent’s femoral artery
instead, causing him to bleed out. So there you have it: Caravaggio slayed a
pimp by slashing an artery when he meant to slash his baby-maker, and that’s why they
never named a Ninja Turtle ever him. “Hello, cruel world.” Aristotle The great Greek philosopher Aristotle was
a wise man for sure, but when it came to women, he was like a lot of other ancient philosophers:
a total misogynist who pretty much had zero idea what they were talking about. “Philosophize with us. All we are is dust in the wind.” According to Charlotte Witt’s essay, “Feminist
History of Philosophy” Aristotle held views of women that went beyond typical masogyny. In his mind, women were hardly even human
beings — at best, they were “deform[ed]” men. For some reason, he decided that women have
fewer teeth than men, rendering them incomplete, which obviously isn’t true. And even though they give birth, they “contribute
only matter and not form to the generation of offspring.” In other words, they birth the kid, but only
men can shape them into actual human beings. Of course, that can only happen if the child
is a man because — and these are his direct words — “…a woman is perhaps an inferior
being.” It seems like there was no “perhaps” about
it in his mind, however, because he was just a jerk like that. “Shut it down.” Thanks for watching! Click the Grunge icon to subscribe to our

  • Are there any historical figures we left out of this video?

  • Maybe the most asinine video on YouTube…total horseshit.

  • It’s easy to criticise the dead

  • Walt Disney was an antisemite racist and terrible person

  • What a bunch of crap. Shame one you.

  • What about Ghandi's racism

  • lasciviousness is being taught to the next generation via movies, computer, video games and mainly cartoons. Why because when the mind is addicted to drugs it cannot function or be used for other purposes, even if some deny this. Getting a child to only think of sex or the sexual act will not allow creativity to thrive, the will go to their based a caveman behavior.
    (IC SUBGENIUS) GOAL science cannot remove the terror of the Gods
    Watch "Somalia's (Only) Popular Drug"

  • So Gandhi wanted the entire Indian race to die off ? Seems like he wasn't a very smart man.

  • Churchill wasn't a racist you twat he was from a time of only white.

  • So you tell me that all the wemens in Stockholm is just "Aristotle" but reversed? No you dont…

    But shieeet, thats true.

  • A few stupid remarks doesn't make you a terrible person.

  • I think most of these stand testament to the fact that morality is subjective, and retroactively placing our occasionally erratic and irrational lens on the only people of the past we are able to view in castigation is objectionable

  • Jobs and Gates. Birds of a feather

  • The premise of this video is ridiculous. "Terrible" as opposed to what – good? The fact is, none of us are 'good' as far as what the word really means. Some people – apparently including the producers of this video – think that just because they haven't done certain things that others have done they are somehow comparatively good. It doesn't work that way. The fall of humankind underscores this story in the most basic of terms. All have sinned and come up short – and we all deserve judgement. Thus all need forgiveness…whether that's the people in this video, the producers of the video, or those of us watching.

  • Barack Obama will be on this list one day. (if you want to consider him "respected")

  • anyone notice how most all of these people were white!. just goes to show you, white people are devils

  • You didnt look up the full context of the Churchill has attack quote, did you? Or even read the entire thing? Nope? Didn't think so.

  • I was surprised to hear how nasty Steve Jobs was.

  • Walt Disney could kiss may ass if he weren't already dead!

  • This man was.evil Disney. Walt Disney. That why Disney is evil.

  • Walt Disney = 666 Stop letting your kids watch Disney Cameron Boyce rip

  • I am realizing a fact about life. I have and still am a "nice" guy, I have had several jobs, and to make a long story short the Bigger SOB you are the further you will go.

  • You forgot that Disney was anti-Semitic, too.

  • Oh, so Walt Disney said some mean words, did he?
    Mother Theresa was working with limited resources
    Leroy Churchill drove us into WW2, but the worst dirt you could find on him was that he was a "white supreeeeeemist"

  • You never mentioned 19th century terrorist John Brown (as in John Brown's body) and his murdering gang

  • Interesting…. The same script for mother theresa..three years later

  • Wait, did the place Mother Theresa served short on doctors and low on food before she got there? I believe Catholic spread the religion through charity, but did she made it worse? That's hard to tell.

  • At least this guy didn't perpetuate the myth that Disney was anti-Semitic.

  • Churchill's Secret War: The British Empire and the Ravaging of India during World War II

  • Churchill, Hitler, and "The Unnecessary War": How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World

  • The famine in India was nothing to do with the UK. Their crop that year was destroyed by disease and the UK were fighting a war .

  • Inasmuch as Mother Teresa, I agree with what Christopher Hitchens wrote, "…she was not a friend of the poor, she was a friend of poverty." Mother Teresa did more to harm the people, and those were mostly women, of India. It is only too bad that she did not experience the suffering that she called "Beautiful!" Now, Steve Jobs, a genius…but a true asshole! Sadly, many of Aristotle's ideas about women are still prevalent in the 21st century. Holy crap!

  • Steve Jobs….karma is a bitch isn't it

  • I always prefer Hitler over those USA presidents of those eras.

  • Who trusts women anyway?

  • If you digging long enough, you find something noddy from everyone. Weakness are good motivator and leadership best location escape trouble and maybe get halo. Very handy.

  • Great video.


  • Hey, no fair showing Socrates instead of Aristotle!

  • Walt was a ghoul of a creep

  • You selling great woke bullshit grunge! Change your name tho from Grunge to Cringe. 👍✅

  • piece i read suggested money was a big goal for her

  • Is it that hard to castrate a guy goddamn

  • I fail to see how you find fault with Ghandi. How was he not right?

  • Omg…you criticize mother Theresa.! You’re nuts! Period! She served the poor as best she could with limited funds….she sacrificed her life. Shame on you!

  • Mother Teresa liked it in the ass

  • How did Ghandi expect that his people would reproduce if they never had sex?

  • Winston Churchill was right about Indians

  • Walt was a satanic scumbag and perhaps a pedo too…

  • How can you judge someone that lived 2500 years ago with the standards of today – that's poor analysis

  • Walt Disney was gay

  • Leave Gandhi alone when I was 15 I’d of deserted anyone for a bird,a lot of the god squadz are shady as fuck

  • You a poor miserable bastard! Though I am not a religious person, nor do I care for their beliefs, but I can recognize the good labor and good will of Mother Teresa. YOU HAVE NO MERITS to discredit her work and its value. THUMBS DOWN FOR YOU. as a person.

  • Steve jobs, a modern day edison. Let others invent for him and claim it as his own and than ridicule the real inventors. And than start a sweatshop to produce his way overpriced stolen tech.

  • "Don't have sex." Yeah! #1, you will be the worlds most busy masturbator, and #2, you religion will go extinct due to not pocreawting to replace this who die. That's thought out well! – NOT!

  • Basically the same video

  • The Africans were violent against the British…………..they still are

  • It's mysogynist to say facts? Men and women are not equal. Change my mind…


  • Worst video I’ve ever seen.

  • "Winston Churchill was not a good person, some may even say he was a bad person, but no one can deny that he was great person." – can not remember the name of the person who said this at the current time, but i strongly agree with this. He was most definitely not a good person, but he was undoubtedly one of the most important people in destroying the most hateful and violent regime the world had ever seen with possibly only the Mongolian Empire as an exception. He was a strong man, and a patriot and he would do whatever he needed to free the French, Poles and other Europeans under the Nazi regime.

  • mother thereza has a face like concrete, the eyes of a great white, and the charm of frankenstein….saint my arselol

  • who decides wot great art, music etc is……the elites do!!!….Picasso's art is shit, same as Francis bacon etc……they obviously know the right people!!!….why did psycho by Hitchcock get on our screens???…the man should have been locked up in a lunatic asylum!!!…but no…..he found favour with the elites!!!!!



  • Too superficial.

  • Is it me or does young Winston Churchill look like Trump

    You leave the Obamas alone
    Blacks are above criticism

  • Complete garbage…
    You leave the Obamas, tiger woods,Sharpton, rev Jackson
    Alone….Michael Jordanis a real prick!!!,
    Mother theresa….your another liberal Democrat idiot

  • Wow so many twists of truth in this video it felt like a social justice attack more so then a historical accuracy taking one thing and calling it another is underhanded and dishonest.

  • Anyone seen Trotsky i think he made this video.

  • Anyone seen Trotsky i think he made this video.

  • What a bunch of horse shit👎

  • Actually, some might agree with Aristotle. We certainly a lot of wimpy pseudo males coming out of single mother households… But then, that's just what I've heard…..

  • Of course you fuckers would spurce a feminist article talking about Aristotle

  • Gandhi was also a very outspoken anti-Semite

  • If you're gonna interpret everybody according to brainwashed political corectness, it seems to me that everybody with an actual brain will fall short. That's natural, and it's a good thing.

  • Mother Teresa and Winston Churchill… WTF?!?! I mean… WTF?!?! Didn't want to go to your heaven anyway.

  • Everyone of them , because you don’t get to the top of the pyramid by being nice . Period it’s a dog eat dog world

  • I was alive when Mother Teresa passed away in before she passed away she didn't interview explaining how she lost her faith and how by now she thought she would have made a difference or God would have out of her own mouth how do you make somebody a saint when they've lost their faith really confused

  • ALL people are flawed. The idea of rejecting a great person who did great things just because they have some weird quirks or nasty elements is incredibly idiotic. Additionally, the idea of judging a person's beliefs by today's standards is equally idiotic. What do you think Washington or Lincoln or Frederick Douglass would have thought about gay people? You want to just wipe them from the books?

    Churchill is the one I'm most familiar with here. So he had some weird views on race in the 1940s? So what? Without him and his extraordinary courage, which almost NO other British politician of the time had any of, the UK becomes a Nazi vassal state the likes of Vichy France. You want to talk about nasty views on race? Wait until you hear about those guys!

    Anybody who knows anything about Churchill at all knows that he had views on race and empire and civilization that don't meet modern PC standards. He's admired because of his incredible (and lifelong) bravery and wartime leadership; in the face of those accomplishments, his ideological "flaws" are absolutely irrelevant.

  • Stupid video extremely bias and poor facts

  • Garbage video
    Just parroting all the left rumors they can come up with.

  • 0.31, she was 13 not 16.

  • “Who were flawed in various ways” is more accurate. Calling Walt Disney evil as you watch a video on a site owned by a multi billion dollar company is beyond hypocritical, by the way.

  • I would comment but I’m shadow banned nobody will see this thanks for the sweet first amendment

  • "The world gains much from this suffering" The signs of worshipping satan are obvious.
    For those who were tricked dont worry The Devil just decieved and tricked you. Its what his good at…
    Just remember only the devil would want people to worship him …oh lord

  • I didn’t understand what Caravaggio did wrong. Killing a pimp isn't a sin. Pimps aren't people.

  • churchill's mother was Jewish. churchill sold the entire world to Rothchield for millions of personal comfort dollars…….Cheap-Trik.

  • ok so Gandhi being "addicted to sex" at 16 was just him being a teenage boy.

  • Wonder how much soy, the narrator consumed

  • another person hiding their identity. It sounds of a woman doing a male voice. pretending terrible people are those who dont hold the authors prejudices. This is Only feminist horse shit !
