Question :Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Famous entertainers and athletes deserve to have more privacy than they have now. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
With the advent of the entertainment industry, ordinary people enjoy their spare time by watching TV which brings about more credits for entertainers and athletes. Some people are just crazy about knowing more about the role models; celebrities and athletes, they admire. In this regard, I think that some behaviors of them can be disruptive mainly because of two reasons mentioned in the following paragraphs. Firstly, in my point of view, everybody deserves to have their own privacy since it can be defined as a human right. Imagine some people start to stalk you everywhere you go on a daily basis. It can be so annoying since you must be careful about the picture of yourself. In this situation, you may think that you are always pretending and this is exhausting. This situation is celebrities' everyday life. They can suffer from anxiety and depression, for being always under the surveillance of their fans. Moreover, this stalking can sometimes be dangerous. Again, imagine that someone stalks you everywhere you go and takes photos of you, you may feel insecure. Besides some fans may try to go after their celebrities' families, especially their kids which can bring striking moments for all of someone's family. For instance, Princess Diana's fans stalked her to the hotel she was with her boyfriend. Prince Diana tried to run away from them which caused an accident and she died after that. This heartbreaking event shows the extreme danger that fans of celebrities can bring to the lives of their beloved celebrities. In conclusion, many may try to know more about famous entertainers and sportsmen in disruptive ways such as stalking them online on the internet or offline in the streets. In my opinion, these behaviors can cause not only some mental health issues for celebrities but also some dangers and threats to their security.
