Actress Kristen Johnston has been very open about her struggles with substance abuse. So when she learned about this tweet from gossip rag RadarOnline:

She was rightfully disgusted:

From Johnston’s full post, via TwitLonger:

We’re used to being the butt of your jokes. We’re used to the media breathlessly using our addictions to make money.

However, when outlets like @Radar_Online, print photos of a celebrity ( and others) at an AA meeting trying to get well, they have crossed the line and have blood on their hands.

Addicts are NOT amusing. Addicts are NOT salacious. Addicts are NOT your entertainment.

Be sure to read the whole thing. Johnston’s moral outrage is well-founded. And she is most definitely not alone in being thoroughly repulsed:
