Who cares? They will be judged for what they did and so will you.

2:200 When you have completed your duties, then, remain conscious of God with a stronger commitment than you used to display for your ancestors and their ways. Among the people is he who says, “Our Lord! Give to us in this world.” But he, who looks only for instant gains disregarding the long term, has no portion in the Hereafter.
2:201 And of them is he who says, “Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter. And save us from the torment of fire.” [He does not forsake the Hereafter for this world, and this world for the Hereafter. 28:77]

6:56 Say, “I am forbidden to worship and obey whom you call upon other than God.” Say, “I will not follow your vain desires. Otherwise, I would go astray and I would not be of the rightly guided.”

But when verses of the Qur'an are presented to free you from bowing down to personalities, you remain joined at the feet of the disbelieving elite who have blinded you:

7:65 To the people of ‘Aad, We sent their brother, Hud. He said, “O My people! Serve God by serving His creation. You have no god besides Him. Do you not seek to live upright?”
7:66 The elite among his people who were disbelieving said, "Ah! We see that you are in folly, and we think that you are a liar.”
7:67 He said, "O My people! There is no folly in me. I am a Messenger from the Lord of the Worlds.
