Pro

Entertainers such as Lindsey Lohan, Justin Bieber and Amanda Bynes are just like anyone else out there. Besides their money, and fame, they are equal to us. They should be held accountable for their actions, if someone down the street is. Why should someone like Justin Bieber not receive the punishment I may, only because of his fame and popularity. It's like being sexist. A specific gender, or group of people are treated differently than the rest. Legally, once you hit the age of 12, you know the difference between right and wrong, meaning all those celebrities and entertainers should be held accountable for their actions. It is their choice and therefore they chould handle.

Con

Young Celebrities such as the ones listed by my opponent should not be held fully responsible due to the fact that, although all of us are equal before the law their conditions are not equal in terms of how much attention they have from multiple communication medias and if they where held accountable for every action that was released in the news they would have lots of more troubles.

Modern communication media, the fact that young celebrities right to privacy (that is protected under multiple constitutions worldwide and the universal declaration of human rights) is violated and the fact that as minors they cannot be responsible for all of their actions (due to the fact that they continue to be dependent on their parents and also are regulated by them) and the fact that as celebrities they work as an adult human being proves they don't have a "normal" civilian life.

Reasons for voting decision: A weak debate. I agree with Pro, and her argument makes more sense. Con's is jumbled and confusing.
