The 25 Most Annoying Movie Characters

4. Mr. Yunioshi, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Played by: Mickey Rooney

Ready for some old-school Hollywood racism? In Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Mickey Rooney played Mr. Yunioshi, Holly Golightly’s landlord. To play a Japanese man, Rooney slapped on a pair of buckteeth, thick glasses, and spoke in a caricature accent that was completely tasteless—even by WWII propaganda film standards.

Every scene with him was like nails on a chalkboard. Plus, anyone with a conscience should also find it a sickening slap in the face to the Asian community. This character has become infamous over the years, and its existence is still debated today.
