Charles Ramsey is a hero. No doubt about it. The Cleveland dishwasher-turned-overnight star helped free three women—Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight—who had been held captive for over a decade. For his efforts Ramsey is being honored with a t-shirt line (all proceeds benefit the victims), television appearances and tons of autotune remixes (this one is our fave).
Ramsey joins a long line of colorful personalities who’s candid interviews with media made them overnight stars. There’s Sweet Brown (real name Kimberly Wilkins) who became an Internet darling last year after describing a fire at her apartment complex. Thanks to the Oklahoma resident, we have the ever delicious phrase, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
Antoine Dodson also became a star a few years ago after his memorable rant about an intruder at his sister’s house. From him we got Hide ya kids. Hide ya wife.”
Ted Williams became a star after a local newspaper filmed him panhandling on the streets of Columbus, Ohio. A former deejay, Williams used his “golden voice” to solicit money on the streets. The video quickly went viral and landed the recovering alcoholic spots on The Today Show.
