Is Australia’s Next Top Model Exploiting A 16 Year Old?
She has moved in with her lover,
She has been expelled from schools,
She regularly drinks alcohol (ok this is not unusual behaviour for a teen)
She admits to hanging out with the wrong crowd, and
Her mother has moved to the US for work.
Now I know all this information is designed to get us to watch her antics on the show, however I feel the use of a mentally fragile 16 year old (yes I know Cassi wouldn’t think she is), is the equivalent of allowing a girl with an eating disorder on the show and using that controversy to promote it.
She is probably started being villified on different ANTM forums.
Maybe I would not have an issue if Cassi was 18 years old and an adult, to have all this shock horror stuff emerging, but personally I think the producers have to be a bit more responsible with the younger contestants on the show, especially ones that don’t appear to have a caring adult looking out for her.
Am I being a wowser?
