4. Kathie Lee Gifford

The Today host was caught in a sweatshop controversy back in 1996 and again in 1999. The National Labor Committee alleged that sweatshop labor was used to make clothes for the Kathie Lee line sold at Wal-Mart after a worker in Honduras smuggled a piece of clothing out of the factory, which had a Kathie Lee label on it. Gifford replied to the claims stating that she wasn’t aware of the slave-like labor conditions and promised to put the sweatshops out of business. However, in 1999, more reports arose about Kathie Lee line workers working in sweltering conditions for just 60 cents an hour.
