Very true about the journalist. Thing is with public judgment - that is all a lot of these 'celebs' have. If she wants to remain popular with the general public, and hence remain a popular celeb (if she is), then she needs to be careful of her actions.
I totally agree with you in that respect, the picture itself is bound to provoke both positive and negative responses based on it's content. What I meant, and should have worded better, was that I think they should form those opinions irrespective of the tragedy in the US. We're in a world of 7 Billion people and not everybody is going to change their behavior for something that doesn't personally affect them. We can't hold that against her.
