Why should celebrities be good role models? They are good role models because they help the poor and raise awareness to bullying. The media do not realize the good they do but they always mange to capture the inappropriate things they do.
Instead the media should tell the children all the good they do so that they do it too, and not the bad.

well do you see those celebrities doing good all the time, no. I can list some. Miley cirrus , and Chris brown. the two worst. do you want your kid to want to be unclothed on TV. I don't.

Well it doesn't help that all the famous people that kids look up to today as role models are bad people to begin with anyway. Take Lil' Wayne for instance. Almost every has or does idolize(d) him, and this is a guy who keeps telling people that smoking weed and other illegal substances is a cool/good thing. He was in jail for being involved in a "gun case' for 8-months. Yet kids still think he's a "good role model".

Don't take this wrong though. There can be good role models among the famous people. Take Bill Gates for example, he started a Charity business with his wife, which was brought up in the latest Film Theory episode "How To Kill Deadpool". Another good example would be Robin Willliams, he would go visit US Forces overseas and around the country to brighten their days and show his support for him https://www.youtube.com.... I'd also like to bring up the Disney Corporation, who is the proud founder of the Make A Wish Foundation and lends a hand to Give Kids the World, which is just a few miles away. http://www.givekidstheworld.org... (I don't know if the source mentions Disney at all, and I don't care. I just put it here so people can see what Give Kids The World is.)
