By  | 


There's always been that cliche concept of falling for the “bad boy,” but what if you don't even realize the guy you've fallen for is bad? Whether we accept it or not, not all bad boys ride motorcycles and wear leather jackets. And usually, when we do, we label them as the dude with a tough exterior but a heart-of-gold.

At some point or another, we're going to have to face the facts: some of our faves are super problematic. Sometimes it's obvious and sometimes… not so much. It's not going to stop up from swooning every time they step on screen, but realizing there's a problem is the first step to solving it, so we'll take it for now.

Caution: Some TV spoilers and major tea up ahead.
