The following celebs suffered a rough year in 2017 and are looking to kick off the new year on the right foot. Do you think they’re worthy of redemption?
The Black community quickly left the former “Apprentice” star in the dust once she began stumping for now-President Donald Trump, later serving as a White House aide under the Trump Administration. Manigault announced her departure from the White House late last year and has since tried to claw her way back into the good graces of “her people.”
“I have my story to tell, as the only African-American woman in this White House, as senior staff and [an] assistant to the president,” she said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people.”
Twenty-seventeen was a tough year for comedic legend Steve Harvey, who was promptly kicked to the curb after agreeing to a sit-down meeting with President Trump and current HUD secretary Ben Carson at Trump Tower. Harvey also got on the public’s bad side when he made a distasteful joke about the Flint water crisis in Michigan.
