I see you're from Australia. I'll help you with the English language all I can.
You can try to be clever and witty, but it is you that has a comprehension problem.
I am not saying that people are entitled to know. I am saying that it is not surprising that people want too know.
His point is that everyone is the same and that individual rights to privacy transcend the average person's desire to know their business.
I agree about that but I think that it is natural that people in the public eye are of more interest to the public than someone they've never heard of.
Not saying that's a good thing.
Having stated that, I do think that when kids tell their friends and parents that they want to be like "that guy" someone can say, "No you don't. Drug addicts are not cool".
Knowing the truth about someone's character isn't always a bad thing. And his affected swagger and choice of girlfriend is a bit of a giveaway, unfortunately. All part of a particularly unattractive package and story.
DJ would have had talks at school about the dangers of drugs from a young age. He thought he was too cool and could "handle" them. Surprise surprise. He can't.
Bad role model for kids and he doesn't deserve sponsors' money. Great golfer, though.
And if anyone says he doesn't have to be a role model and didn't sign up for it, it comes with the territory.
