Regardless of his age, he's a high school junior. Yes, he's a legal adult. Yes, this is a matter of public record. But do you not find it at all gross that FloTrack and MileSplit, which made money off of promoting his likeness and track exploits, continues to make money by promoting and making nationally known his darkest moments? They're promoting their brand without any respect for his privacy or personhood. They're entitled to do whatever they want. It just seems gross to me. And I may cancel my FloPro account over it.
Only agreeing with you because MileSplit and FloTrack are pretty scummy.
You two must be awfully sensitive. First, while flo and milesplit may be “scummy” in your opinion, they don’t make any money promoting his track exploits. They simply report results and news around running. They don’t sell Tyrese Cooper gear or use him in advertising. He is on their site because he is good, not because he makes them money. Do you know anyone who pays for a subscription just to stay caught up on Tyrese Cooper? He is an adult, there is nothing wrong with reporting his arrest. He has not been convicted, and as others have pointed out his life isn’t necessarily ruined either. He needs help, at least by reporting it he will be forced to deal with whatever issues he faces. Sweeping it away would only reinforce the idea that because he has running celebrity he won’t have to face the same scrutiny as others. And with as much as you dislike those media outlets, if they had not reported it and you heard it elsewhere you would have laughed at them for “missing the boat” on that story.
