People Share What Their School's Popular Kid Did To Lose Everyone's Respect

It's very possible to be popular in high school without also being a huge douche, but those two things aren't always mutually exclusive. Sometimes a popular kid does something that they think they can get away with and it backfires like the dickens. Usually it's some horrible lie or evil thing they they tried, and realize too late that people won't always have their back. Besides that, it's after high school when people really change (or don't).

    Text - thefrq 503 points 16 hours ago This very popular, good-looking guy lied about having an affair with a female teacher whose husband was also a teacher at the school. Literally everyone hated him after the truth came out

    Text - OverHaze 926 points 16 hours ago He got a bad haircut, was teased for it an threw a temper tantrum. He literally stormed out in the middle of class. He lost his spot as king bully after that.

    Text - ResidualSound 2.5k points 17 hours ago She was pretty and fairly popular and near the end of the school year told everyone she had cancer. We were approaching the end of grade 7 at the time. Eventually literally everyone knew: teachers, other parents, other grades, et., and it kind of united everyone who weren't typically friends and that was kind of cool. Until one day (maybe a week or two in) a pair of girl friends go to visit her at her parents house and they bring it up and discover i

    Text - Crazed_Archivist 6.4k points 16 hours ago .edited 12 hours Wholesome for once, I guess. All popular kids in my school were complete dickheads that bullied others. This fella, King of the Hill, starts dating a girl from another school that was friends with one of the bullied kids. The kid told the girl what her boyfriend does in tht school, so the girl threatened to break up with him if he didn't change his ways. He stoped socializing with the "cool" folks and started getting bullied by th

    Text - HandHoldingClub 9.0k points 19 hours ago I remember in middle school the popular kid asked out the most unpopular girl and then embarrassed her in front of everybody by breaking up with her and laughing in her face about how she could think it was real. It was really sad and I remember her being really into high school tv shows and I think she really wanted to be popular, like she hoped life would be like a disney show or something. Idk what happened to him but I remember everyone kind of

    Text - chrisn3 2.8k points 18 hours ago She was hired to dogsit for a neighbor when they went out of town. She decided to take advantage of the empty house and throw a party at the neighbors house that got out of hand. Neighbor's daughter also went to the school and had to deal with a messed up house. Pretty big deal and the popular girl never came back.

    Text - Marawal 18.6k points 19 hours ago He was popular because he was a rebel that talked back to teachers, and insulted them openly. He became an outcast because he made the teacher everyone loved cry.

    Text - AnGrammerError 8.3k points 19 hours ago Best answer to this happens between Elementary and Middle school. Our elementary was small, and we fed into a middle school with a much bigger school. Think 20% us, and 80% them. Most popular kid showed up on the first day, after only knowing what its like to be the coolest kid in the small school, and tried to start shit with some random kid. Who was with 11 of his friends. To show how cool and "top dog" he was to everyone I guess. Yeah, those 12 g

    Text - Kangaroodle 13.0k points 18 hours ago Well, the popular girl at my school tried to ruin the life of a really sweet girl because of boyfriend drama. When she realized people were standing up for the sweet girl instead, she lost her mind. Accusing the other girl and her boyfriend of property damage, turning on anyone who didnt "swear loyalty" (??) to her, turning people against one another, screaming at teachers, it was a mess. The nail in the coffin was when she confided to me and two othe

    Text - th1cc_potat0_ 5.8k points 17 hours ago My school doesn't really have popular people. Everyone just kinda has their friends, some people have more than others but it's not like a social hierarchy. However, this one girl did something that (rightfully) destroyed her reputation. So basically this girl that was pretty well liked asked out this boy that no one ever expected her to ask out. It was unexpected because he was less well known, but in general everyone liked him. They had a cute rela

    Text - gilette_bayonete 14.9k points 16 hours ago 2 This kid in middle school used to talk shit to everyone. He had nice stuff his parents got him and everyone thought he was tough and could fight until one day he started on a special needs kid. Nobody had ever actually seen the popular kid fight, he just was excellent at intimidation. Now a lot of the special needs kids in my area weren't just students who were mentally challenged, but had overall learning disabilities. Many of those kids came

    Text - daveisadog 13.8k points 19 hours ago There was a guy that was pretty popular, he got really drunk at a party and totally didn't know where he was. He pulled down his pants, squatted and totally started to poop. He moved away immediately. He was a senior and I was in 8th grade...that was well over 25 years ago. Well, he friended me on Facebook a couple months ago and I kinda recognized him...I racked my brain and it came to me...the guy who pooped at the party. Poor guy.

    Text - KhaosElement 10.2k points - ...she dated me 18 hours ago We were in speech and debate together. Both did impromptu, and we would give each other random quotes and stupid cartoons to practice with. Spent a lot of time together because of it. We dated for about two days before people mocked her for it and she bailed on me HARD to keep her social status. She never socially recovered from the sin of liking one of the nerds. Thing is though, she then lost all her nerd friends too.
