  1. He has starred in roles that are controversial, but to the movie's context does make sense
    • His role in Tropic Thunder [1], he was playing an Australian man playing a black man. It was uncalled for, but is justified that this role was purposeful as it mocked white people taking the roles of POC (People of Color).
    • His role for Sherlock Holmes 2, he played as a white man, but in the movie he was to disguise himself as a Chinese male. Again, uncalled for, but people justify it by saying it fit the situation granted and he has little control over the plot.
  2. He did defend Mel Gibson [2] after all the inappropriate things he did like being openly sexist, homophobic, antisemitic, and saying bigoted remarks.
  3. Lastly, he did clap at Seth McFarlane's Oscar[3] joke about Rihanna and Chris Brown's relationship

These are the only lists of offences that RDJ committed, besides his total downfall into drugs.
