Rachel Berry Is Literally The Worst Character On "Glee" And You're Crazy If You Think Otherwise

You can fight me all you want, but Rachel seriously sucks and I wouldn't want her in my life.

It's been a few years since Fox's well-known controversial show, 'Glee' has been off-air, but after hearing people rave about it still to this day with some heavy, heavy convincing, I gave the show a chance being that it is on Netflix.

OK— The show wasn't as awful as anticipated and shockingly became quite easy to binge-watch. As a binge-watcher, you can't help but feel as if you know these characters in real life for the good, bad, ugly, and in between. The show is as corny as imagined but the musical talent and song covers never failed to impress for all six seasons.

Despite popular opinion of all the "gleeks" out there, there's something that needs to be addressed, something very controversial. Rachel Berry is without a doubt, the most awful character on this show and can probably make it on the top five list of worst characters television has ever come across.

She's overwhelmingly two-faced, self-absorbed, vindictive, obnoxious, and too selfish beyond her years. It's a shame, though, because Lea Michele is likely the complete opposite. Here's 13 reasons why Rachel Berry is literally the worst character on 'Glee:'


She's freakily way too obsessed with Finn.

Lea and Cory were amazing, but Rachel and Finn? Not so much. She's a freak.

If you look up the word, "selfish" in the dictionary, you would see her face.

Even after landing Finn after so many pathetic attempts, she completely disregards his future but still expects them to live happily ever after while solely chasing her dream.

She would make it the end of the world if she didn't have each and every solo in Glee Club.

She legitimately thought it was her world and everyone was living in it. Yes, you have a spectacular voice, but your voice is not as powerful and soulful as Mercedes.

Her comments throughout the entire series are beyond cringe-worthy.

Santana said it best, "You are short, you are awful, and that is never gonna change!"

She gets so intimidated by other talented singers she doesn't care to get them deported for her own vindictive victories.

When exchange student, Sunshine Corazon, was going to audition, Rachel legitimately tricked her into going to a crack house, instead. The New Directioners needed an addition like Sunshine and she didn't even care.

Don't even get me started on the time she got laryngitis...

Finn had to take her to visit somebody that was paralyzed from the neck down to get her to shut up about losing her voice for a week and to appreciate the fact she's actually in good health.

She claims to be a raw, creative artist but...

Her version of a Lady Gaga inspired outfit was sticking stuffed animals to herself and had the audacity to ask her biological mother (who she'd found out about five minutes, yes, five minutes, prior) to make her a proper costume because it needs a mother's touch. Sorry, what?

She has no shame in being a *virgin* home-wrecker.

Before the Rachel and Finn fiasco, Finn was completely happy dating Quinn and Rachel did literally anything and everything to sabotage it, for real.

She lied about a teacher inappropriately touching a student for her own personal win.

In order to help herself rise to the top, per usual, she was willing to do something so morally wrong. She isn't even THAT amazing, mind you.

She is an awful BFF.

She is seriously such a bad best friend to Kurt. She literally went on a date with a Blaine, guy Kurt was so evidently in love with, who also happened to be very gay because she had a crush on him.

Two-faced, two-faced, two-faced. Holy freaking two-faced!

After going on and on about how much she loved Santana, their friendship, and how she wants her to shine in New York like her... She goes psycho on her the second Santana lands being Rachel's 'Funny Girl' understudy. The keyword here is U-N-D-E-R-S-T-U-D-Y.

She is incapable of taking in harsh criticism when finally in the Big Apple.

She deserved all those tears and fear courtesy of Cassandra July. She finally realized there are people out there equal to or better than her.

Her annoyingness legitamately won her prom queen...

​For some not-so-suprising reason, prom queen was a big deal in exaggerated measures throughout all of 'Glee.' Rachel, of course, was the absolute worst so she literally won by a rigged, pity vote by her "archenemies," Quinn and Santana. Who's really the mean girl?

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.

Life Before Emancipation

Contraband Camps in Harpers Ferry

6013

When the Civil War first broke out, the United States Army sought to preserve the Union, and did not have intentions on interfering with the institution of slavery in the rebellious states. In fact, in his first inaugural address, Abraham Lincoln promised not to interfere with slavery in the places where it already existed. Of course, at the time of this address, Virginia, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Tennessee had yet to secede, so he needed to keep a moderate stance. When the U.S. Army moved into states in rebellion, generals ensured civilians that they would not interfere with slavery, and would even hep quell potential uprisings. On May 22, 1861, this attitude towards slavery began to change. Prior to then, slaves who escaped into Union lines could be returned to their masters. In some cases, troops with more abolitionist leanings would aid the runaways, but it was not yet the norm. However on May 22, three runaway slaves approached Fort Monroe along the James River seeking refuge. The slaves stated that they were about to be sent South to work on the Confederate coastal defenses in the Carolinas. Instead of returning the slaves to their masters, the commander of the fort, Benjamin Butler, claimed the slaves were contraband of war and put them to work in support of the United States. He wrote Winfield Scott, general-in-chief of all federal armies, "Shall [the enemy] be allowed the use of this property against the United States and we not be allowed its use in aid of the United States?" Following Butler's actions, 900 more slaves would gather in Fort Monroe. Congress would back Butler's stance with the First Confiscation Act in August of 1861.

Juneteenth: The Overlooked 'Independence Day'

If we can't celebrate different types of people and rejoice with them in their season of glee and jubilation, then what kind of "land of the free" is this, anyway?

I want to begin this article by saying that I was raised to be about as patriotic as it gets. I was born and bred in the "Bible belt" where we learned to say "thank you for your service" before we could even comprehend what those words truly meant. My father is a highly respected and high-ranking Houston firefighter, and he is following in the footsteps of three prior generations of Houston firefighters within our direct lineage. My maternal grandfather served in the U.S. Army, and I have multiple family members and personal friends who have served and/or are currently serving in our nation's military. And lastly (probably most important), my husband is currently serving as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, as well. So I think it goes without saying that I have the utmost admiration and respect for public servants and first responders of all kinds.

I love our nation's military and I love this nation. But I am not a blind patriot with my head stuck in the sand. I will always support our troops, but I will very rarely support the ugly wars that we fight (both literal and figurative) across national borders and/or within our own walls.

I will be the first person to admit that this great nation in which we love so dearly is filled with hatred, ugly politics, extreme corruption and institutionalized oppression and racism (just to name a few). I love America and I am grateful that I live here, but I am not blind to America's obvious flaws.

War and political nonsense aside though, I think it is worth noting that America is already great, but let's not be ignorant, America is certainly not the "land of the free" for every race, religion and sexual orientation out there. So let's stop treating it as such. The sooner we can recognize our legitimate internal problems, the better off we will be. Our gullibility is getting us nowhere.
