I briefly caught a segment while flipping through channels yesterday of Demi Moore's breakdown and the 911 call that was played over the air.
Am I the only one who thinks this is an unnecessary, rude, invasion of privacy? I don't care if the person is a public figure, I just find this exceedingly rude and insensitive. When my former-FIL passed away from a sudden massive heart attack, I would have felt the same if the 911 call of that night had been opened to the masses as well. I remember when Brittany Murphy passed away and that 911 call was released as well.
I just don't understand why some things are really any of our business. This is a completely different scenario, but it's stuff like this and the love-child of Arnold Schwarznegger or the divorce dealings of Newt Gingrich that make me crazy. I can understand if it somehow includes the defrauding of the government or breaking a criminal law, etc., but I do get tired of media and the feeding frenzy that follows information like this.
I understand that these people choose to live public lives, but I sincerely doubt that there are many people in this day and age who don't have at least one, if not more, skeleton in the closet that they would not be pleased to have revealed because someone, somewhere, decided that it was their business. I do not understand why stars, government officials, and other public figures cannot be afforded some measure of privacy if only out of a respect for someone's private life.
