Considering that you are Pro (for) the belief that celebrities are poor role models, I stand to refute this claim.
I also add that the name "are celebs poor role models" is made to sound as if the claim accounts for all celebrities.
ALSO, I just wish to say that I accepted this only because I don't agree with the typical notion that all celebrities are deplorable influences on children and teenagers in particular.

Pro has made it evident that they believe all celebrities are "poor role models", this is simply not true and can be exeplified through a vast number of actors who are currently distinguished celebrities

- Leonardo DiCaprio: Leonardo is an activist for a number of environmental issues, this can be seen as a valuable influence to the up-and-coming generation whom seem somewhat reluctant to stand up in what they believe is right. He also committs his wealth to fundraisers. [1]

- Jennifer Hudson: Jennifer has previously been a spokeswoman for weightwatchers, thus continuing on to encourage women of all ages to maintain confidence in themselves regardless of their shape or size - this is currently a controversial issue and she is dedicating herself to a resolution which is healthy for the wellbeing of all women, and influencing them to incessantly think positive. [1]

- Demi Lovato: Demi has experienced problems with anorexia, and now assists girls to overcome similar issues. She is a positive influence, comforting and supporting girls through such a common issue in todays society. [1]

- Taylor Lautner: Taylor adamantly refuses to fall into the burden of alcohol and drugs, believing that life is better to live it like your "average Joe". He clearly demonstrates a humble and non-destructive nature to children and teenagers, thus a significantly virtuous influence. [1]

These celebrities, just to name a few, clearly exemplify that there are a number of celebrities who use their fame to promote kind-hearted causes and remain a significantly strong influence on young individuals.

The media makes money from controversial topics, kind-hearted actions are not considered "controversial", but divorces and drunken transgression is, this is why all we see from celebrities is poorly decided actions and not the countless compassionate acts of other celebrities.

Due to this, it can be affirmed that not all celebrities are a poor influence.
