A recent survey of over 2,000 parents asked which celebrities, both female and male, they felt were the most negative influences on their kids.

Miley Cyrus and Chris Brown, respectively, came on top. Or on the bottom, to look at it differently. All hail the king and queen of bad role models!

Brown was rated as a bad role model by 71 percent of respondents, which isn’t a huge surprise given the singer’s non-stop controversies in recent years.

Miley Cyrus, meanwhile, was deemed a poor influence by 68 percent of respondents, due largely to her transformation from Disney star to R-rated Twerking machine.

See Miley Cyrus “We Can’t Stop” video and montage of Miley Cyrus Twerking. ‘Nuff said. Other female celebrities on the naughty list:

  • Lindsay Lohan (65 percent)
  • Kim Kardashian (63 percent)
  • Amanda Bynes (61 percent)
  • Farrah Abraham (59 percent)

These four ladies have all aired their dirty laundry in the limelight, while one is a complete train wreck and two of them have starred in sex tapes.

Amanda Bynes? She just defies description.

Other guys in the “bad role model” club:

  • Kanye West (67 percent)
  • Justin Bieber (65 percent)
  • Lil Wayne (58 percent)
  • Charlie Sheen (56 percent)

Some are worse than others, there, though all have pretty giant egos and would have to put in serious work if they wanted to be considered mentors.
