Do public people have a right to privacy?

I believe this is an interesting question. People who choose a public life probably expect that there will be more scrutiny and yet they get away with some outrageous comments. Let’s take Maddona’s statement that she was thinking about blowing up the White House, a lot. I would dare say, that if I made a public statement like that I would be on a watch list and under investigation in a New York minute. She was given a pass, because she was public and wealthy figure.

I found this to be interesting. 

“The right to privacy refers to the concept that one’s personal information is protected from public scrutiny. U.S. Justice Louis Brandeis called it “the right to be left alone.” While not explicitly stated in the U.S. Constitution, some amendments provide some protections.”

Of course the implication, if it were correct would only apply in the United States.

  1. Public people have to have a thick skin and expect to find themselves the talk of the town but I also think that these kinds of people should always be aware of what they are doing and saying and not overstep too many boundaries. Now I am a very private person and an introvert so I could never do anything public but I love gathering an audience, being friends with others and enjoy people complimenting my work online as long as there is a PC screen between me and them, I enjoy life online especially since it gives me a life and it has helped me overcome loneliness many times.

  2. I think if you do enjoy the privileges of being a public/famous people… then you ought to endure the flip/unpleasant side it brought…

    If you choose to put yourself out there, then please do expect that there’ll be people who doesn’t like you. And that whatever you say cannot be “private” if you choose to let it go public…
