Greater protection should be a priority for celebrities. There are a lot of people who are out there that would like to hurt a celebrity for no real reason. This is why they already have security guards that go with them places to combat all of the crazies that are out there.
If they deem that they need to more protection, then they should hire someone. They have the money to do it. It would be nice if we lived in a world were such things weren't necessary, but we do. That being said, people should be respectful to celebrities and understand they are people just like the rest of us. They are just more famous and make more money.
yes, i think that when you are a celeb that you have a whole lot of people that like you, but also a lot of people that do not, so that would make a good form of guards a really good thing that you could keep around just in case.
Celebrities should be able to do whatever it takes to protect themselves so that they may be able to live normal lives. The idea that people can make so much money from gossip about celebrities is rather unfortunate. Worst of all, this culture is spreading into politics and it is contributing to our increasingly poor political culture. A culture shift for both celebrities and politicians who are celebrities themselves need to be force amongst themselves in changing the culture.
There's no reason celebrities deserve any sort of special treatment including protection. They may be more vulnerable to incidents of violence and stalking because of their public image, but ALL people are vulnerable to these crimes, and celebrities at least have the luxury of wealth to secure their own privacy and safety.
