  • Free Speech Must Remain

    Regardless of rather Cheryl Cole's blog comment about Lily Allen was socially acceptable or unacceptable is not the point.

When you start censoring one person, it will always lead to censoring more people.

  • Cheryl Cole's blog comment about Lily Allen was a matter of free speech.

    Cheryl Cole's blog comment about Lily Allen was a matter of free speech. She has the right to say what she wants about Lily Allen as long as she is not threatening her life. (Which she did not do.) Miss Cole just has to be aware that she is in the eye of the public and that many others will see what she said, including Allen, so she should be prepared for criticism concerning her remarks.

  • Free speech is first

    Free speech is the most important thing here, and one of the most important questions whenever a controversy comes up. People don't really understand that freedom of speech pertains only to government intervention; people are allowed to get offended and not support them, but people can't do anything more than that.
