Is there a famous fictional character that you can’t stand? You’ve got company. Someone recently asked, “Who’s the character everyone loves but is actually annoying?” And here are the top-voted responses.

1. Serena van der Woodsen

“Serena from Gossip Girl,” said one. “This girl has no self-control. She’s always hooking up with someone, even if they are married, Nate’s cousin and Nate himself, like he was just like her for cheating on Blair. She has the style and the look for the stan factor, and that’s it.”

2. Ross Geller

“Ross Geller from Friends is the most annoying character, but they are all awful,” someone professed. Another argued, “David Schwimmer gets done so dirty because everyone hates Ross.”

“But Schwimmer was hands down the most talented actor on that cast. And honestly, it’s only the first season where Ross is unbearably whiny; after that, Schwimmer manages to make the character likable and less annoying.”

3. Ted Mosby

“Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother,” one person said. “Marshall is the only one who doesn’t do anything cruel or terrible throughout the series. However, Lily is a manipulator, Robin is a snob to her sweet co-worker for no reason, and Ted and Barney are both creeps in different ways.” “Also, Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother,” another reiterated. 

4. Gina Linetti

One suggested, “Gina Linetti from Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” “Yes!! She has some funny lines here and there, but she has a trash personality,” said another. “Her character was out of kilter with the whole tone of the show – all the other characters were quirky but ultimately loveable, whereas she was just a selfish jerk with no redeeming traits whatsoever.”

5. Raymond Barone

“Raymond,” another volunteered. “He was supposed to be likable? How he never defended his wife from his horrible, manipulative, narcissistic mother was rough. I have no history with that, but I still found all of them unbearable.”

6. Minions

Minions,” shared one. “The worst part of Despicable Me and I cannot even deal with the fact they got their own freaking movie. I hate them.” “I never understood the hype of Minions. They’re just annoying creatures who found their way into Boomer memes annoying the internet.”

7. Piper Chapman

“I hated Piper in Orange is the New Black,” someone confessed. “The show got so much better once they realized the supporting characters’ stories were way more interesting than the main character. From season two onwards, it feels like an ensemble, and she’s barely in it for more than the others,” another informed. 

8. SpongeBob Squarepants

“Spongebob. I’m more of a Squidward guy. He’s more realistic and the type of dude I’d take a hit with,” one stoner admitted. Another pulled out a Batman reference, “You either die SpongeBob or live long enough to become Squidward.” “Or you’re Patrick your whole life,” a third joked.

9. Carrie Bradshaw

One user replied, “Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. She is self-absorbed, not a good friend, and just the worst.” “All four of those women are dysfunctional and self-absorbed,” another commented. Finally, a third admitted, “Didn’t know this enough as a teen watching this but rewatching as an adult, good Gawd, they’re all awful, but indeed, Carrie is THE WORST!”

10. Sheldon Cooper

“Sheldon Cooper,” one said. “Oh my goodness, Sheldon would be a terrible friend. Or neighbor, classmate, coworker, or acquaintance. Every character from The Big Bang Theory is a terrible trope,” another added. 

11. Jerry The Mouse

One user said, “Jerry from Tom and Jerry” shared one. Another stated, “Exactly, Tom has suffered too much because of this dirty little mouse. I root for every cartoon cat. Screw Tweety!” Tweety is even more annoying than Jerry.”

“And growing up in the 90s, the worst moms at school had Tweety shirts and car decals. You’d see them outside the school yelling at the grounds people or being obnoxious at every sporting event,” another added.

Honorable Mentions: Fez from That ’70s Show, Peter Griffin from Family Guy, and Frank Gallagher from Shameless.
