Put on a hazmat suit, folks, because it's time to enter a hot zone of virulent human stupidity with the worst people of the week for August 24 to 30. This week has featured plenty of activity from celebrities, heiresses, retired ballplayers, CEOs, and otherwise normal people who rocketed to Internet fame. Whatever else they have in common, everybody on this list attracted the wrong kind of attention recently.

That doesn't mean anyone on this list are literally the worst people on Earth. A quick scan of the news yields violent, deranged, and awful individuals who committed truly shocking acts of violence or cruelty over the last several days. These aren't those people. These are the folks who make you roll your eyes and think, "Ugh, they're the worst!"

Just who will be crowned in shame as the worst person of the week is up to you. Your votes determine the order of the list, so
vote up the most awful people in the news this week.

http://www.ranker.com/list/worst-person-of-the-week-august-24-30-2015/jtdesaulnier,

Adriana Lima
What Happened: Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima became a celebrity cautionary tale for the modern age when she inadvertently endorsed a Turkish terrorist group.

The Details: It would've happened to anyone, really. Some random dudes at the gym asked the supermodel to shout a Turkish word, flash a some silly gestures, and howl on camera. Ever gracious, Lima obliged. Turns out the gym rats were really duping her into howling for the Grey Wolves, a militant organization that once attempted to assassinate Pope John Paul II. When the video of Lima went viral, it more or less immediately sparked outrage. Let this be a lesson to us all.

Curt Schilling
What Happened: Former MLB pitcher/current ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling was suspended from the network due to a Tweet comparing Muslims to Nazis.

The Details: Never one to back away from online controversy, Schilling courted some himself when he retweeted a meme declaring, "It's said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?" The retired ballplayer added, "The math is staggering when you get to true #'s." That math added up plenty of public outrage and a suspension for Schilling, who was booted off Little League World Series commentary duty.

Jon Stewart
What Happened: Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart took a cheap shot a John Cena in the ring, assaulting the defenseless WWE star with a metal folding chair in a flagrant and shameless violation of wrestling tradition.
 
The Details: For years - years! - Jon Stewart's been the conscience of both late night comedy and political punditry. No longer, though. America's stinging from his turn as host of SummerSlam, in which the once-trustworthy Stewart disgraced himself, the sport of wrestling, and humanity as a species when he pummeled poor, oiled up John Cena in order to prevent the wrestler from breaking Ric Flair's World Championship record. As the cowardly comedian ducked away, Cena's opponent Mr. Rollins snatched victory from Cena, who was too stunned to even pull Stewart's figurative knife from his back.

Noel Biderman
What Happened: Noel Biderman stepped down as CEO of cheating website Ashley Madison after a massive hack that revealed users' info and his own personal infidelity.

The Details: As if being the chief executive of a site that exists to make extramarital affairs wasn't enough already, the self-proclaimed "king of infidelity" presided over the site when the details of 37 million users' accounts were hacked and leaked, undercutting Ashley Madison's claim of total confidentiality. Oh, and in a shocking twist, Biderman's own leaked emails suggest that he himself cheated on his wife despite past claims to the contrary.

Hayley Bloomingdale
What Happened: Heiress Hayley Bloomingdale created a list of Instagram rules that is basically a mean girl manifesto designed to make you feel bad about yourself.
 
The Details: In creating her list of rules for posting photos to Instagram, the 29-year-old heiress to the Bloomingdale's department store fortune probably intend to sound condescending and dismissive. Still, her Vogue guidelines read like the meanest girl in your high school got rabies and went feral on everyone's self-esteem. Sample advice for anyone with less than 100 followers: "Hurry up and get cooler." What's worse than that? Bloomingdale calls Instagram pictures "grams" and, most egregious of all, bans cat photos. Yes, she advises against all cats on Instagram, demonstrating that she does not, in fact, know a damn thing about Instagram. Or cats.

The Portland Pooper
What Happened: Portland's most nefarious criminal has been dropping illicit deuces in public places repeatedly.

The Details: The dastardly defecator's identity is unknown, but his crimes are all too familiar. The man keeps pooping in front of local businesses and offices at SE 58th and Powell in broad daylight. These aren't crimes of passion; the guy brings toilet paper with him every time. If captured, the mystery man could face "offensive littering" charges.

The Lady Suing a Six-Year-Old
What Happened: A grown-ass woman who was hurt skiing is now suing a six-year-old girl for almost $40,000, claiming the child was totally responsible.

The Details: After her first suit against the kid's ski instructor was dismissed, an unnamed Austrian woman has gone on to sue a little girl. The woman claims that the girl, who was learning to ski with a group of youngsters, veered into her path with a full awareness of the consequences, consequences that included unspecified but "serious" injuries. That's what she says happened, but an expert has said in court that it was just an accident, one that went down because neither the woman or the pint-sized skier were paying enough attention.

Alex Gomez
What Happened: Southern California man Alex Gomez stumbled upon a rattlesnake and laughed in nature's face by posing for pictures with the live poisonous snake. Nature laughed back.

The Details: What do you do when you find a rattlesnake in your backyard? You don't pick it up to take a bunch of photos. Do not, I repeat definitely do not, drape the agitated slithery reptile around your neck. 36-year-old Gomez thought that would be a great idea, and was surprised when the rattler's fangs ended up deep in his fleshy hand. He was promptly treated with anti-venom and will survive. The rattler's whereabouts are unknown.

<![CDATA[The Best Romance Anime Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-romance-anime/ranker-anime
It's time to get in touch with your emotional side, as we're ranking the top romance anime that has ever been made. These shows typically depict two people falling in love; it starts with a crush and the audience watches it blossom from there. Good romance anime highlights all kinds of relationships, from schoolyard crushes and first kisses to adults developing a relationship at work. Sometimes referred to as love anime, these shows can be a little more slow-paced than your typical anime, but that isn't to say they're boring. In fact some of the best romance anime isn't strictly about love, but rather a combination of multiple genres.

In the hit series Inuyasha, the love between Inuyasha and Kagome is strong throughout the series, but it takes a back seat to the fighting and action scenes that really drive the show. The same goes for the popular Eureka 7, where Renton and Eureka fall in love while piloting mechs and fighting the evil United Federation.

Don't forget, if one of your favorite romantic anime shows is missing from the poll, you can add it so that others can vote for it too. Add as many series as you like, as long as they tell a love story with intense feelings and emotions.

<![CDATA[The Best Anime Series of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-anime-series-all-time
You love anime but what tops this list of the best anime series ever made? The blanket term "anime" in the US can refer to any animation originating in Japan, and specifically differentiates a few aspects of Japanese animation from more Western styles. (This includes the Japanese propensity to feature adult themes and stories in animation, as opposed to Western "cartoons" aimed primarily at children, as well as the exaggerated, fantasy-oriented and colorful style of Japanese animated visuals.) "Anime" can refer either to animated films or TV series, furthering the confusion. (Anime is often incorrectly used to refer to Japanese comic books as well. These are actually known as "manga," though many anime series are based on or inspired by popular manga.) Check out the best anime of 2014 for newer recommendations! 

Anime TV series first found popularity outside of Japan in the 1980s and have continued to find larger and larger audiences in the West. A number of anime shows originating in Japan - such as Cowboy Bebop or Dragon Ball Z - have found enthusiastic audiences for dubbed versions in English speaking countries. (Pokemon, a series inspired by Nintendo's blockbuster series of video games, has been an ongoing hit franchise in both Japan and the US.) The anime style has grown so popular in the US, it has stared to significantly influence the style and aesthetics of American animation. Shows such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, Afro Samurai and Samurai Jack have borrowed heavily from anime in terms of pacing, subject matter, and design.

This list collects the best Japanese anime TV series of all time. American series that have been influenced by anime, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, are not included.

<![CDATA[The Best Flavors of M&M's]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-flavors-of-m-and-m_s/chef-jen
This list has all the best flavors of M&M's including discontinued and limited edition flavors. M and Ms are typically thought of as a traditional, All-American candy.

In 2013, according to Consumerist.com, Mars, Inc. also introduced Birthday Cake flavored M&M's. Those actually sound pretty good. Whether you're into these crazy M&M varieties or the classic M&M, they're all here on this list of M&M flavors.

Each colorful button-shaped candy has a similar-looking hard candy shell with a small letter "m" printed on one side. But these days, they contain a variety of fillings, including milk chocolate, dark chocolate, crisped rice, mint chocolate, peanuts, almonds, orange chocolate, coconut, pretzel, wild cherry, cinnamon and more.

<![CDATA[The Best Salad Ingredients]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-salad-ingredients
The very best salad ingredients, be them veggies, cheese, meats or other items, are the essential components that when combined transform the individual items into a real salad. Alone, these items are all delicious, but when you add them together and toss them with a delicious salad dressing, a yummy salad is created.

In fact it's the salad ingredients or toppings that distinguish one salad from another. Take the Caesar salad for instance and it's traditional toppings of Parmesan cheese, romaine lettuce, croutons and a garlicky dressing. Greek salads are the same with the likes of feta cheese, tomatoes, onions, pickled beets, peperoncini peppers, cucumbers and an olive oil-oregano dressing making these individual items combine to create something better than the sum of the original parts.

Whether you're a fan of traditional salads like the Waldorf or the classic cobb or just a simple garden salad with lettuce, tomato and dressing, it's safe to assume we can all agree that the ingredients make the salad. We've all seen the salad bars stocked with a wide variety of vegetables, cheeses, meats, nuts and dressings, and just as there are endless options for salad toppings, there are endless combinations for which to create out own definition of a perfect salad.

Perhaps that flexibility and the fact that there is no wrong way to make a salad, is what makes salad a wonder food. As an added bonus, for the most part, unless you pick fatty dressings and high-calorie toppings, salads are also healthy. That's a double bonus if we ever saw one.
