As the allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein mounted several weeks ago, the hashtag #metoo began trending as a way for survivors of sexual abuse to share their own stories. It was sobering to see how many women (and men!) had been victimized in their lives but one story that made headlines came from Olympic star, McKayla Maroney.
In another case of "why do we think we own celebrities (especially children)?" Stranger Things star, Finn Wolfhard, was recently thrown under the bus by some fans because he did not stop to interact with them outside of his hotel.

The fear of backlash silences many regular people, so it must be extra daunting for someone in the public eye who could literally face millions of negative comments.
