Strange Place to Have a Door

This magazine states:

“ALEX SMASHED DOWN
THE DOOR IN HIS PYJAMAS”

I have never heard of anyone having a door in their pyjamas, let alone smashing it down. This is a “World Exclusive”.  I fear that this glamorises domestic violence (or at the very least, normalises it). I cannot see what is to be gained by leading with this story; it cannot be good for anyone reading about it or involved in it.

The fact that he smashed down a door is enough, the added detail of being in his pyjamas is irrelevant – but it serves to just lower the tone that extra notch, it is the same as the choice of the word “Frolicked” or the term “Breakdown”.

This poor couple are going through a rough, tough time. They are not really celebrities, but they are not “ordinary” people either. It is such a shame that their financial security depends on having their ups and downs displayed on trash magazine covers.

Yes, Things Are getting Worse.
