Consent. Or lack thereof.
The musician’s family is letting people publish updates on his condition and even post pictures of him. He still can’t speak, doesn’t see well, and probably has no idea the pics are being taken or for what purpose. He is fiercely protective of his privacy, and I think he’d be horrified to know those pictures are getting out.
I brought up my concern with his family and the response I got was basically that since everyone loves him and wants to know what going on, and that the updates make them happy, that I should be ok with it.
So the public’s desire for information is more important than his inability to give consent for them to know.
