Just in time for Halloween, the two were recently voted the “most creepy” persons in a poll conducted by California based company E-Poll market research.
Manson was voted 69 percent “creepy” while Anthony scored 57 percent, reports Reuters.
Former football player OJ Simpson came in third on the list, followed by reality stars Spencer Pratt and “Octomom” Nadya Suleman, who became famous after she gave birth to octuplets.
Film director Tim Burton was eighth on the list thanks to his creepy films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, on a tie with director Woody Allen, 75, who received negative publicity after his 1997 marriage to Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, 33 years his junior.
“Anybody people think has committed a crime, whether they are guilty or not, are going to be disliked, and Casey Anthony and O.J. Simpson are disliked,” said Gerry Philpot, president and chief executive of E-Poll Market Research, which tracks people’s popularity in the media.
