When Your Fave is Problematic

We all have that celebrity that we love. They might be who we aspire to be and who we look up to. Kids have plenty of role models both famous and local.

But it’s also important to recognize when they have problematic behavior. Just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t excuse them from having questionable choices. They’re role models, they should be aware of what they say or don’t say and how that could affect their fans.

You can still like your problematic fave. As their fan you can also try to urge them to be better. By recognizing their problematic behavior with their praise, you are acknowledging that they are a package deal.

This was inspired after numerous people have touted Tom Brady and Bill Belichick as the best ever, while not taking into account that both of them support Trump (which I don’t need to explain why that is problematic).
