Fake accents in general can be bad or good, depending on the person doing it.

Examples of Good Fake Accents: Hugh Laurie's American accent in House; Gwyneth Paltrow's British accent in Emma, Shakespeare in Love.

So, it all depends. Most annoyingly fake? American Southern Accent. Pretty much everyone doing a fake Southern accent is the same & ignores the many nuances of accents in the South.

As an Australian myself the "Australian accents" are so wrong. Nobody talks like that, seriously. Except for bogans (look it up if you don't know what that is) and people who live in rural/remote areas, a.k.a people in the outback - or people like Steve Irwin. Everyday Australians don't sound like that really. In fact, most people mistake a typical Australians accent for a British accent.

Also, as an Eastern European (I've been an Australian citizen since 2000, so I'm technically Australian now) who frequently gets mistaken for Russian thanks to my name, hearing horrid Russian accents is also very annoying. In fact, I also find fake Asian-in-general accents annoying. SO MANY ANNOYING FAKE ACCENTS.

I've been told my fake brittish accent is charmingly posh...

I fake my own accent. I got rid of it, and now speak with a fake accent known as "not from New York".

It sometimes slips through with dog or soft, or the dreaded coffee, but for the most part I've gotten rid of it.

I hate when people do a fake French accent. I'll see someone who knows I'm in French 2 and they'll do one because they've heard me speak french and I have to try so hard not to yell shut the fuck up
The worst for me is fake Indian and fake Japanese
People find out I'm Indian = the most shitty and stereotypical accent ever
ALTERNATIVELY
non-anime friend finds out I really like Japanese culture = shitty accent+engrish
