Browsing Twitter this morning i came across an 'OK! MAGAZINE' article about ex Eastenders star Elaine Lordan.

The article itself tells us that she has previously sought help for alcohol addiction, the same year her mother committed suicide (throwing herself in front of a tube train no less), she later suffered a miscarriage & shortly after her father passed away. & today she will wake up to pictures of herself downing a miniature bottle of wine all over the internet. 

Why is it so acceptable to kick someone when they are so very down?! This isn't an attack on 'OK! MAGAZINE'. I read it, i enjoy it, & i do have an interest in celebrity crud. 

My point is shouldn't whoever signed off on this story question the damage this story, & many like it could do to someone in an already fragile state? Is there no way you could have turned this into a positive? Maybe you could have reached out to her & offered help? 

There are countless celeb stories that the media can report that are welcomed by the person being publicly dissected. As her agent hasn't responded to 'OK!' yet I'm guessing this story won't be a welcomed one?! 

Anyway, i personally wish her well. I hope that she turns this into an opportunity to seek help.
