Some NFL fans may find Brees’ inclusion on this list confusing. That’s because he has done a lot of charitable work in New Orleans and most people regard him as a stand-up person. But Brees allegedly has a dark side because he controversially contributed to gentrification in the city.
The former quarterback allegedly invested in a luxury residential project on the waterside that pushed working-class communities. Furthermore, he has links to a pyramid scheme that fell foul of FTA regulations. Brees may seem like a good human but he also loves money (via Nicki Swift).
