19. Jon Hamm led a fraternity pledge around the house by a claw hammer round his testicles while other frat members beat him so hard his spine was fractured and he nearly lost a kidney

Hamm later referred to it as ‘a bummer of a thing that happened’

I hate this, not just because he hurt someone, but because it was so so humiliating, and shows an utter disregard for other people.

20. Jerry Seinfeld dated a 17-year-old girl in high school when he was 39-years-old.

I know it isn’t illegal. He had money, fame, and was at the height of his show. And he chooses to date a 17-year-old who is still in high school? It might not be illegal and as bad as murder/rape/kidnapping/etc. , but it’s still pretty scummy.
