I wonder when the press will learn their lesson. They seem to do this time and time again with celebrities (especially child stars who grow up to develop severe mental health issues.) They ridicule and hound them, which can only make their mental health issues worse. Obviously, I'm not blaming the press for her mental health issues, but surely people need to draw a line and say to themselves ''Okay, she's clearly not well, so we need to leave her alone and hope she sorts herself out rather than making money from the mental illness of another human being.'' But that never seems to happen. It just makes me wonder where the humanity is in some people
At the minute, her entire life seems to be like some sort of circus attraction which people are lining up to see and laugh at. It breaks my heart.
After the whole Britney Spears breakdown I thought something would have changed, but clearly not. I remember reading somewhere that some publications had her obituary ready and waiting, that just made me ill, that there was people just waiting for her to die rather then help.

To be brutally honest I think the fault lies with us, the press is not designed to be ethical, it is there to be bought, and 'child star in breakdown' sadly, sells. They are only printing what they know people will buy, of course I am not condoning it I am just saying this is how it works. If the public didn't want to witness someone falling apart publicly the press wouldn't cover it, I think we should be the ones saying 'no'.
