2017 was quite a year for sexual harassers.
Their wandering hands, lewd jokes, violent abuse and power plays were publicly shamed and with that, they all just… died. In our hearts, of course.
So, in honour of our dead love for the men who were once held in high regard by the public, we thought it fitting to see out 2017 with an obituary of sorts.
One that rounds up all the men who are dead to us after years of (alleged, in many cases) abusive tendencies.
RIP to the love we once had for them.
The ones who died in our hearts

Ahhh, the once-loved House of Cards star who, by the end of 2017, found himself the centre of a House of Horrors. More than 15 men came forward accusing the actor of sexual misconduct, so how did he see fit to respond?
It went a little like this: “I was drunk oh, and also, I’m gay! Look over here!”
In the bin, Spacey.
“People go, “How is it to work with Dustin?” And I tell the half-truth, which is, as an actor working with him, I owe him everything. I learned so much. And then I would stop and there would always be a knot in my stomach about what the real truth was, which is he was abusive and he was a bully,” actress Kathryn Rossetter recalled to NBC this week, about her time working with Hoffman on Death of a Salesman.
For a large part of his 80-year life, Hoffman is alleged to to have been a bully and a systematic abuser and, for that very reason, we’re bidding him goodbye.
If you’re willing to whip your d*ck out and masturbate when an up-and-coming actress goes to deliver you a meal in your trailer on set, we’re going to say it’s only fair you’re blacklisted.
