    Well this is kind of a different beast though, in the sense that it illustrates one of the ways people might become misinformed. In that context I agree; ignore what celebrities say and assess information to form your own opinions.


Exactly.

    But thinking celebrities should keep their views to themselves


I really wish some of them would. The ones who are lost to narcissism. But of course I don't know which ones those are.

It isn't really the celebrities that bug me. It's the average joes who hang on every word these celebrities say. It's like this. If I post on one of these boards that cats are possessed by Satan, no one who reads my post is going to come away from it believing that cats are possessed by Satan. But if Kim Kardashian tweets it, some percentage of her umpteen million followers will start to seriously consider the idea.

    and assuming they're Martinis-sipping elitists who only virtue signal, are two different things.


Some of them are. But of course I don't know which ones.
