Robert Blue

Police discovered that Las Vegas dad Robert Blue chained his daughter to her bed because she was overweight. She was found beaten and crying -- all because dad thought she was too fat.

Blue, 53, was also arrested for beating his daughter with a wooden stick and kicking her, and was put in custody at the Clark County Detention Center.

Levi Johnston

He talked trash about his baby's grandmother to a national audience. No matter what your feelings are about Sarah Palin, that's pretty darn low ... and doesn't send a very good message to his kid. (And don't even get us started on that Playgirl spread ...)

Tong Liangliang

Tong Liangliang gave his 2-year-old cigarettes to help his son deal with the pain of a hernia. Now his little boy smokes a pack a day, and is addicted to nicotine.

Ben Smith

Sixteen-year-old Ben Smith has fathered four kids with three different girls ... and he's not even smart enough to answer a basic question. Host Jeremy Kyle (like a British Maury Povich) calls this dumb dad out!

Joseph Chapman Jr.

On "Judge Jeanine Pirro," this dad appears to be confused about the number of kids he has and their ages.

Anthony Taylor

Anthony Taylor, 48, who is married and has a young child, was arrested after allegedly traveling to Delaware County from Staten Island to have a sexual encounter with a woman and her 14-month-old daughter.

Richard Heene

Richard Heene concocted a spectacular ruse by reporting that his son was aboard a runaway hot air balloon. After the whole nation fell for it, his kid threw up on national TV ... and people began suspecting it was all a hoax. He pleaded guilty to attempting to influence a public servant, a felony, in what authorities say was an elaborate hoax for publicity.

Phillip Garrido

Phillip Garrido kidnapped Jaycee Dugard in 1991, when she was 11, and kept her in a well-hidden compound behind his home in Antioch, California, for 18 years. Phillip Garrido fathered two children with Dugard during her captivity, authorities have said.

Tiger Woods

Dad of two Tiger Woods was busted for having affairs with nine women and counting. Although he apologized for his "transgressions" and even took a break from golf, he's still not earning any "Father of the Year" awards from us.

Mark Sanford

When Governor of South Carolina Mark Sanford admitted to having an affair, he issued an apology to his sons Marshall, Landon, Bolton, and Blake. But does that erase the fact that he left them alone on Father's Day to go visit his mistress? We don't think so.

Jon Gosselin

He hooked up with many younger women immediately following his separation from Kate. He called his wife "despicable" on national television, and said he loved his new girlfriend more than he EVER loved his soon-to-be ex-wife. And he wore Ed Hardy head to toe as he flaunted his midlife crisis to the entire world. FATHERHOOD FAIL.

Don’t forget that there are deadbeat moms, too. Look at any welfare list od any state…or does that defeat the premise of your site? Moms that use meth during and after pregnancy, that use alcohol and marijuana, that simply don’t care? I have my daughter because her mom doesn’t care. So, from her and I to you, run off with your tails betwen your legs, because they’re the only things you’ll ever have between them. Losers.

What a sad, bitter, little man you must be Mike. You see, there are far more fathers who are labeled dead beats for avoiding child support than there are mothers who are non supportive (Don’t like women needing to be on welfare? BLAME THE FATHER WHO ISN’T PROVIDING FOR HIS CHILD!) and there are far more (so called) men who have committed child abuse or spouse abuse than women. The proof is there, whether you like it or not. Your disgusting comment regarding what goes between a woman’s legs only proves you’re unfit to be raising a daughter. You obviously harbor a great deal of hate for her gender and that hate will influence her greatly.
