Is There Any Real Positive Change That Can Be Attributed to Modern Celebrity Activism?

It is common to see celebrities of all stripes coming out and championing various causes. This makes headlines and is good publicity. However, is there any real evidence that this type of campaigning by modern celebrities has made any difference in real life? Is there evidence that the world is a much better place for this type of activism?

  • Like any type of activism, the result depend on the person, the cause, etc. Individual cases will differ. This is true of all types of activism, regardless of whether the activist is a celebrity or not. – Sean Gadus 2 years ago

  • I think it also be interesting to explore if celebrity activism is being pushed upon public figures. Often they are told they MUST be role models, each of their actions are scrutinized, and activism gives them a better reputation. Often celebrities who go down a 'bad' route are hot news for a few weeks before blending into obscurity. This could be an interesting angle if looking at the sincerity of celebrity activism. – Pamela Maria 2 years ago

Social media is run by data mining companies…which is essentially make money by gathering information from your social activities and selling that information for the benefit of advertisers. Not a healthy foundation for any relationship to grow from…however, there can be good in social media, if people keep the above facts in mind and limit their time using it…real, deep, satisfying relationships will still need real surroundings, and real, shared experiences to grow…

The Power of Social Media; Does It Enhance or Swallow Up Relationships?

Good points to ponder…the question came to mind is, what does the fact that this type of romance makes so much money say about us as a culture? Sure, for many these types of films will be harmless entertainment and remain as such…however considering the vast amount of #metoo comments coming out these days, could it be that many people actually believe that it is okay to abuse and even healthy to abuse others…in the name of love. Perhaps this type of thinking has become a cultural problem… Perhaps it is time to reconsider the ideals of people like Katherine Hepburn…
