We’ve had mixed submissions from readers for Vanessa Hudgens, and so have removed her from our typical +/- scale.
Whilst her actions were ill informed when she said, “Even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible… but inevitable?” – she has since apologised for the “insensitive” Instagram video which seemed to question the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic (BBC)
We believe that making judgements about the nature of people’s actions is always difficult, and so for individuals, we attempt to be extra careful about reducing their actions to the rather simplistic metric we use on most listings on the site. In these cases, we try to present as much information as we can, as well as the contrasting perspectives, and rate the entry as “it’s complicated”.
We hope that these listings will also help encourage readers to always take a pluralistic perspective on what they read online.
