Her Name Was Reeva Steenkamp

To the editors, journalists, proprietors and readers of the Sun and the Daily Star. She was not “The Blade Runner’s Lover”. Her name was Reeva Steenkamp. She was a law school graduate, an activist for women’s rights, a model, and an aspiring TV presenter.

Daily_Star_newspaper_front_pageThe_Sun_newspaper_front_pageHer tragic death deserved to be marked with dignity, not treated as an excuse to turn the front-page of your newspaper into little more than a wank mag for sick and perverted men.

Decent newspapers bothered to talk about her, and her life. Would it be too much to ask that you do the same?

  1. you know, her family allowed the diffusion of the reality-show she had participated in, “so that people get to know her better”. Or is it so that possible jurors may hate the defendant more and already make up their minds ?

    Everybody uses the news media for their advantage…
