Q: Why do so many celebrities get into moral trouble? Don’t they realize it could destroy them? They ought to be thinking of the bad influence they’re having on people who look up to them. — J.D.
A: I don’t know that celebrities get into moral trouble (per your definition) any more frequently than non-celebrities. These stories certainly make the news much more frequently than if you or I got in trouble. We humans are excellent at pattern recognition. Every time you hear a story about a celebrity getting in trouble, it reinforces this pattern for you. However, when celebrities do not get in trouble (which probably pertains to most celebrities for any given time period), you do not hear about it, and the opposite pattern is not reinforced.
