Celebrities are people too

What is wrong with certain so called fans these days that as soon as a celebrity says or does something they don't agree with they hate on them. Celebrity is a title given to someone whose job is in the public eye, it does NOT define who they are. They are PEOPLE like the rest of us and it is YOU who put them on pedestals and then abuse them when YOU knock them off. As people they are just as entitled to their opinions as you or I. Being a fan doesn't mean that you have to agree with everything they say and do. But being a fan does mean you should respect them and their right to their opinion. They are not here to cater to your every whim and nor can they be expected to be exactly who you or anyone else expect them to be. They are their own people with their own opinions, tastes and beliefs. By hating on them and ceasing to be fans you are basically suggesting that they are to give up their right to an opinion when they enter the public eye. Celebrity doesn’t mean that a person should be silenced. Do you wipe your friends and treat them like crap when they don’t like or do the same things as you…

So next time someone you are supposedly a fan of does something you don’t agree with you have two choices: 1/ ignore it and understand that everyone is different or 2/ childishly (ie publicly) ditch them because they aren’t the mindless drone you wanted them to be. At no point is abusing them an option.
