Another celeb being protected. This time a poor boy has died. Why hasn't everyone learned that protecting these people never turns out right?

Maybe you should read the story behind this before jumping to conclusions . Sadly he had mental health issues and was 18 - young but still not a child. This is the Mail just being homophobic.

Which the person in question may not have known about before people start using this against him

Threads like this and the repugnant aspersions and character assassinations that the Daily Mail likes to peddle is precisely why they need to be protected.

Protected from what?? He has not even been questioned over the boys death, so why should he be named just because he is on tv???

Aside from the drug use at the parties, nothing in the article suggests with any degree of certainty this "TV comic" actually broke the law, just acted massively inappropriately, which is presumably why the "TV comic" hasn't been named.

Not naming people is pointless these days - his name is easily available on twitter

Analytical reading of the story would have informed you why the word 'grooming' had to be placed in inverted commas. Sadly, angry kneejerkers seldom burden themselves with the facts.

Assuming that name is correct, it may not be...

Or no smoke without fire. Actually found it unbelievable that one actor in particular walked free. As for the comic, why was a forty odd year old messing about with such a young, confused boy Oh and don't know how he has the nerve to call himself a comic, he's dire.

Has that particular comic been in trouble before?

I can think of one certain one who dropped out of the limelight a few years ago in contreversal circumstances.

The one being named it could be argued was never in the limelight, Was just 'there' occasionally

I know who I find when I search but I can only find one link seems very hush hush even on twitter anyone willing to do a cryptic clue like "mr well loved pop star"or give a phrase to put on twitter.

Most people will have vaguely heard of them though.

I must admit when I heard the descriptions given the person being named wasn't my first thought. I didn't even realise the person being named as said "TV Comic" on twitter was gay, and I genuinely don't see why they would need a stylist...

Because nobody wants to be done for defamation or contempt of court, which is also why Digital Spy tend to lock forums discussing controversial court cases.

I see he has been outed in another thread so I know who it is now, who is the numpty on Twitter who has named it as RIcky Gervais and gone on a religious rant?

It would seem like bad judgement on his part but I don't like the way it's being made to look more predatory than if it was perhaps a straight relationship.

It isn't illegal and he may not have known the boy was confused, And the messages seem to imply the boy was using him as much

The age gap is extremely wrong IMO but that doesn't mean that the comic groomed him or that the boy was abused. Sadly he obviously had mental health issues but people shouldn't necessarily jump to the worst conclusions. I have seen his name on twitter, if it is him.

Would you say the same if it was a male/female paring?

I know it's not illegal but 18 is still very, very young, especially if the boy was confused with his sexuality. The comic also supplied him with drugs. Imo the comic took advantage of a very ill boy. Shameful!

Of course I would. Why wouldn't I? it's not illegal but I don't understand why someone that age would be interested in someone so young.

The daily fail are clearly trying to jump to the worst conclusions because of their homophobia. If it was an older man with a younger woman, I bet they wouldn't care. But predatory older ladies or gays? Wrong.

Nobody knew he had mental health issues beforehand, the article says his mental health issues became apparent after he met the TV comic. And depending on the type of mental health issues he had, it may not have been easily recognisable.

Also, "boy" is a misleading term, he was well above the age of consent and definitely an adult.

A lot of people seem to have a problem because it is gay man involved. Just checking. Nothing personal

No problem, I think it is weird no matter who is involved, but I know some idiots would only have a problem if it was a gay man.

As I said before, an odd age gap but that doesn't necessarily mean there as grooming involved. We don't know all the information.
