18 Famed Pop Culture Couples That Are Actually Toxic AF
Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl
This relationship is one of the most problematic ever in pop culture. Blair (Leighton Meester) has some truly terrible friends for not talking her out of being with self-destructive, narcissistic Chuck (Ed Westwick). Chuck is many things, but a perfect gentleman is not one of them. He almost rapes multiple women, is emotionally and physically abusive, and we can’t forget the time he traded Blair for a hotel! It’s a bit – nay, incredibly – insane that Blair ever forgave him for that one! Blair’s not perfectly innocent, either. She tends to be pretty abusive herself towards both her romantic interests and her friends, and loves playing games with Chuck.
