The abuse of power is unfortunately not new. It is not a gender situation, an age situation or a demographic situation. We see the abuse of power in the entertainment industry, and celebrities the most, because of the natural visibility of the industry. Although, we know the abuse of power is happening across all industries from government, to finance to medical to religious to education and beyond. 


People who use their power as a mechanism for manipulation must be stopped. As more people come forward to talk about the abuse, we can be more effective as a society in eradicating this common practice. 

On the other side, the accused party should have a right to defend themselves. With the ease of posting something to social media or online in any area, reputations can be tarnished almost immediately. There are people telling the truth and there are people potentially lying to gain exposure. How do we discern fact from fiction? What procedures are being put in place from the online entities that discourage this type of behavior?

This type of online practice is filtering down to our youth. Cyberbullying is atrocious and is causing young people to take their own lives. We live in a world where one post, one photo, one video can be shown to millions in a matter of seconds. People have every right to accuse someone of wrongdoing, but they should take the legal route. They need to provide evidence and go through proper procedures to ensure the matter is handled in an efficient manner.
