To be honest, we can’t count the number of times Baldwin lost it on the paparazzi. In the summer of 2012 he famously went nuts on a hapless photographer waiting outside the New York Marriage License Bureau,  accusing him of being ” a little girl” and “raped by a priest or something.” Harsh words, but it’s nothing compared to his recent outburst, in which he was videotaped screaming a homophobic epithet at a cameraman waiting outside his Manhattan apartment. It sure sounded like he called the man a “c–ksucking f—-t,” but Baldwin maintains that the second half of the phrase was “fathead.” In any event, despite his apologies for using the first part of the slur, MSNBC cancelled his show in the wake of the scandal.

2013 was the year that A-Rod went the way of Lance Armstrong…almost. The Yankee champ was nearly banned from the MLB for life after getting caught using performance enhancing drugs in the Biogenesis Baseball scandal. Luckily (sort of) for him, he was only suspended from August 8th of this year through to the end of the 2014 season. This whopping 211 game ban -the longest non-lifetime ban in history- is punishment for “use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances,” and “for attempting to cover-up his violations of the Program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the Office of the Commissioner’s investigation.” Reportedly, he plans to appeal.
