Doing things for social media frenzy and the attention is what majority of people love to do now. Social media validation has become a thing, so much so that when you are not the type that put out your good deeds for humanity out there, you will be termed stingy.
But then, many celebrities do not care for that anymore. No matter what you do, people will talk anyway.
Blogs and the media are quick to report negative things done by celebrities, but most time they ignore the good deeds.

Social Media Validation And Celebrities. . . .
Nowadays, it is as if many people live their lives online, via various social media platforms. So for some, the platforms are like their new world where they share their lives. For this reason, they seek validation about any and everything pertaining to themselves.

They do it so the public will see that they are doing the needful for the society. Although, a great number of them deny it, they say moving with the camera and sharing on social media is a way of creating awareness for others to emulate.
