Can we please start celebrating good people?

About Justin

Sharing my thoughts and opinions with you

I'm sick of all the negativity and celebrity letdowns. Time to celebrate the good guys.

Recent allegations of sexual misconduct against celebrities -- including comedian Aziz Ansari -- have seen many Hollywood reputations dragged through the mud.

The accusations against Ansari, in particular, have caused much debate and division -- with some labelling him a predator, while others say he was guilty of nothing more than not being a mind reader.

The world is angry and despondent about the recent stream of allegations against people that we thought we knew and admired -- Hollywood types such as Kevin Spacey, Dan Harmon and Stan Lee.

So I've decided to focus on those celebrities who've had a positive impact on the community.

It may surprise some, but in the macho world of professional wrestling, John Cena is a shining light.

While some within the wrestling community think he is talentless, his community work is constantly lauded -- which is why he is regarded as one of the nicest guys in the world.

Cena's reaction to the news of a gay WWE co-worker coming out publicly was nothing short of supportive and joyful, despite paparazzi trying their hardest to make him say something negative.

Cena also holds the record for the most Make-A-Wish Foundation's volunteer wish fulfillments -- with over 500 -- more than double that of second-placed Justin Bieber.

Someone slightly more recognisable may be Dolly Parton, who is well regarded as a genuinely nice human.

Parton created an organisation that will send any child a new book, free of charge, every month until the age of five, investing heavily in future generations.

You may detest her music, but rapper Nicki Minaj is also a philanthropist, helping pay for her fans to get into college. Additionally, Minaj has been donating money to an unnamed village in India for years through her pastor, helping to establish a computer centre, multiple water wells and a reading program.

What other celebrities can be identified as good people? Whether its for friendliness -- such as Tom Hanks, David Attenborough and Morgan Freeman -- or being a surprisingly generous philanthropist like Nicki Minaj. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
