Letter: Give your peer some privacy

Re: “Franco, #getittogether” (Feb. 26): Please refrain from commenting on James Franco’s tweets, etc. His commentary is directed towards his fans, not the Yale community. Does the Yale Daily News regularly comment on other students’ tweets or emails? No. His invective reflects your personal, out-of-context attack.

There were celebrities on campus when I went to Yale. The Yale Daily News ignored their presence and we, as a student body, ignored their celebrity status. Please allow Mr. Franco this unique gift. Unless your goal is to work at TMZ, a little empathy would do you well.
