    From Redditor u/arrowsnsuch:

    Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. She’s a legitimately horrible, self-centered person. She doesn’t believe in bisexuality, got mad at Charlotte when she wouldn’t lend her thousands of dollars for her apartment when it was legit Carrie's fault she’s broke, got mad at Miranda for taking care of her baby, said yes to Aidan’s proposal when she knew she didn’t want to marry him… should I go on???

    Sarah O'Brien

    From Redditor u/pettegolezzo:

    O'Brien from Downton Abbey. She was horrible and conniving to everyone, tripped Mr. Bates and set in motion Cora's trip and fall miscarriage yet got her dream job.

    She should have been sacked without a reference and forced to take jobs scrubbing floors.

    From Redditor u/DubTheeBustocles:

    Jordan Belfort, both in the Wolf of Wall Street and in real life, got rich scamming people for years and then got a slap on the wrist because he snitched on all his partners and subordinates.

    Grandpa Joe

    From Redditor u/jimmywhiskers:

    Grandpa Joe from Charlie and the chocolate factory. That MF was literally in bed doing nothing while his family fell deeper and deeper into poverty. Then the second Charlie wins the golden ticket he can miraculously walk and dance?! Na. He milked his own children and grandchildren for everything they were worth and then saw a better opportunity with Charlie’s winnings.
