15. Jonathon McClendon
Jonathon played Chase Jennings, son of bad guy Aiden, when the character went through soap opera rapid aging syndrome (SORAS) in 2014 to transform into a teenager. While he was thrown into a disturbing rape storyline with Ciara, and then sent to prison, McClendon was written off when his character was transferred to an Oregon jail. The young actor would be fired from Days in 2016, and then go off on a Twitter tirade in early 2017, ripping into the daytime drama via a series of posts.
