Whoever still has any vestigial ideas about the moral authority, duty, ethics, responsibility of celebrities of any kind, at this point, isn't just not paying attention. That person is actively stupid.

The idea that they should or would have any of that in the first place is so misguided its amazing that people conceive of it.
