As we all heard our favorite actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested in the peach city of Atlanta, Georgia. For those who don’t know who she is she stared in the movie “Legally Blonde.” She was the good girl of Holy wood until that night. She used those cocky words “ Do you know who I am”, now normally you hear those words in the movie, but this is reality. My topic is “ Should celebrities or professional athletes be viewed as role models”. I said they shouldn’t be viewed as role models because it seems like the time you say someone is your role model the next couple of days they are being arrested for something. For example, most young boys and girls who have dreams of playing basketball look at Kobe Bryant as a role model, but little did they know he was arrested in 2003 sexual battery charges. Of course these charges didn’t interfere with Kobe’s talent, but it kind of interfered with his image as a professional basketball player. And of course we can’t forget about the young Lindsey lohan. She was known for her role in “ freaky Friday” and guest starred in the comedy 2 in a half men. Most of her friends didn’t see her as trouble, but she was. She was arrested for stealing , D.U.I , and drug use. She has recently gone into rehab to fix her ways. These are a few examples of why MOST celebrities shouldn’t be viewed as role models. Please don’t mix my words up because I’m not saying that all celebrities aren’t good role models.
