6. Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana
The Show: Hannah Montana
Why They’ll Be Scarred: If you spent half of your life hiding your real identity from everyone and the other half hiding your celebrity from everyone, you’d grow up to be very confused and very cliche-former-child-star. Now, I don’t want to go drawing any comparisons to the real former child star who played her, but…
7. The Unborn Child of Daya and Officer Bennett
The Show: Orange Is The New Black
Why They’ll Be Scarred: This relationship may seem all sweet and loving but can we address the elephant in the room for a sec?

And to add insult to injury, everyone is going to think that a pervy guy named Pornstache is its dad. Nothing good is going to possibly come of that.
8. Debbie Gallagher
The Show: Shameless
Why They’ll Be Scarred: Well, for starters, both of her parents skipped out on her and her siblings and left her eldest sister to carry the weight of it all. Well, most of the weight. Because, at all of about 11 years old, Debbie runs a babysitting service to help support her family, takes care of her scummy dad when he’s drunk, and takes care of her baby brother when no one else can.
9. Pete(s) Wrigley
The Show: The Adventures of Pete And Pete
Why They’ll Be Scarred: I don’t know why their parents thought it’d be a good idea to give their sons the same exact name.

It’ll be a blast.” But also, “Whoopsies, looks like they’ll have some identity issues on account of the fact that we took theirs away from them when we named them the same thing.”
10. Walter White, Jr.
The Show: Breaking Bad
Why They’ll Be Scarred: His dad, the head drug dealer in all of the land, is the cause of this one. In the process of trying to support his family, he accidentally broke the law and killed lots of people and ruined lives, including his son’s.
