    It all started when Reddit user u/crystalmethanyh asked, "Who’s a celebrity everyone loves except for you, and why?"

    Read on for some of the top-voted responses from users.

    And just a preface before we start: All of the celebrities on this list are massively popular and successful. Their careers are not going to take a hit because one  person on Reddit doesn't get the hype. Feel free to disagree in the comments, but keep it civil — it's not that serious!

    1. "Beyoncé. I don't get why everyone is supposed to love her and if you don't, you're some sort of satanist. I find her music average, nothing groundbreaking, and I don't care about her personally."


    2. "Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. Everything I have learned about their marriage has been against my will."

    3. "The Rock. I’m so tired of hearing his, 'I had seven bucks in my pocket' spiel while completely ignoring the fact that he has a well-connected wrestling dynasty family and is genetically gifted. Yes, you work hard, but people are out there dying because they can’t afford healthcare and food, so preaching to them to work harder in every interview while he hasn’t had to cook his own meal in literal decades is condescending as fuck."

    4. "Meryl Streep. People think she’s an acting goddess, and I’ve just never been impressed."

    5. "Gal Gadot. Can't act. Still annoyed about the 'Imagine' fiasco."

    6. "Vin Diesel. He is so boring. Every single movie he plays the same type of character. Same tone. Same everything. There is no range. No diversity. Watching him act is fun the first few times, but then after that I feel like I need a change of pace and would rather watch paint dry as it would give me more variety. The only different role that man ever played was as a tree whose only line was, 'I am Groot.'"

    7. "I think Lizzo counts. At least it feels like there was a moment everyone was just in love with her. The songs I’ve heard from her are fine, but she’s praised Chris Brown a little too much to be likable."


    8. "Elon Musk. The dude is just the front man of science. His engineers get no credit and the dude flaunts around like an idiot. He is smart, don't get me wrong, but he does it in the wrong ways. And I have a belief that if you tell someone they're the smartest for so long, they lose the passion to continue to learn and stop being the smartest. So yeah, dude is just the lead singer of what his team does."

    9. "Ariana Grande. I swear to God I want to love her as much as most 20-something-year-olds do. I’ve bopped to so many of her songs and 'thank u, next' singlehandedly got me over my high school heartbreak. But whenever I see her on TV or in an interview, her voice/appearance/attitude feels like a new performance every time. IDK, it’s borderline uncomfortable to watch."

    10. "Oprah. She doesn’t seem very genuine or like she has good intentions."

    11. "Zooey Deschanel. She always seems super bored and tired in her scenes. She has no acting range. She’s quirky for the first movie then she’s just dull. What is everybody seeing that I’m not?"

    Zooey Deschanel

    12. "I just don't love Adele...I know, I know, everyone talks about what an amazing talent she is. Maybe, but her voice and her songs make me feel down and hopeless. Every. Single. Time. I. Hear. Them."


    13. "Leonardo DiCaprio. I do believe he is a great actor, but damn if there isn’t something about him that pisses me off. My feelings aren’t justified in anyway! They are irrational and unexplainable. There is just something about the man that can be a real bummer for me."

    Leonardo DiCaprio

    14. "Anna Kendrick…pushes the 'so quirky' thing a little too much for me."

    Anna Kendrick

    15. "Ryan Reynolds. He's just the same character in every movie, and that character is himself. Makes anything he's in boring because you know exactly what kind of character he is and what kind of movie it's gonna be."

    Ryan Reynolds

    16. "Kristen Stewart. Speaking as a gay girl, so many gay gals thirst after her but something about her rubs me the wrong way. She seems a little full of herself and seems fake."

    Kristen Stewart

    17. "Kevin Hart. Can't STAND his need to scream his lines in a childlike nasally voice. His serious movie that he made recently wasn't terrible though."

    Kevin Hart

    18. "Neil Degrasse Tyson. He's so fucking annoying. Stop being a dick and understand when people are speaking socially and when they are meaning something literally. Also, stop with your unsolicited science rants — you're the astrophysicist version of mansplaining."

    Neil Degrasse Tyson

    19. "Lin-Manuel Miranda. Terrible actor yet feels the need to insert himself in everything. And he's a one hit wonder in my opinion."

    Lin-Manuel Miranda

    20. "Seinfeld. He seems to be a comedy god to a lot of Americans. He's just not very funny, and worse is the constant one-upmanship he does with comedians. They've generally said something very funny, then he has to add something less funny. I know that's what happens when comedians get together but you know, make it funnier. Don't get me wrong, the show Seinfeld has its moments and I enjoy it. It's not his character I dislike, it's him. I just don't think he deserves the kudos!"

    Jerry Seinfeld

    21. "Keanu Reeves. He is not a very good actor if you compare him to others. Most of his movies aren’t really good. And people praise him for his personality, which is based on internet myth. I am sure he is a great guy, but so are many."

    And finally...

    22. "The Weeknd. Not as a person, but holy crap, every single song of his sounds exactly the same and I can't stand it."
