This young boy is THREE years old, innocent and NOT FAMOUS. He shouldn’t be apart of anything like this. It’s not funny. It’s not original. It’s not cute. It’s not cool. And it’s not ETHICAL.
Misha Collins is an actor and consenting adult to distribute his image and likeness to the world freely as he chooses. He takes the risk that stuff like that would happen. It was funny, it was a great memory, and it freaked him the fuck out.
West Collins is the toddler son of an actor. He’s a minor and isn’t able to provide his consent for his own well being to distribute “semi-private” family photos and images of himself to the world. EXPLOITING this child is morally wrong and unethical and needs to be stopped. After all if it made his FATHER uncomfortable to happen to him, how well do you think THIS would be perceived to him?
I get it, you love West Collins, he’s an adorable happy little kid and hell I even have my own fandom tag for him, but he’s not some actor we can just distribute thousands of pictures of across millions of people’s dashes. He’s a child and he’s Misha’s child. If you’re a true fan you’ll respect this child’s privacy and give him great things to look at when he gets older, NOT give a weapon for BULLIES and COLLEGES and JOBS and FUTURE RELATIONSHIPS to find. This isn’t a game. This is a young person’s life and I hope you have enough compassion and brains to know this is just wrong.
I also would like to state for those who complain about never having photos of Justice Ackles. This is EXACTLY why Jensen keeps photos of JJ so secretive. He doesn’t want this to happen to her. He wants a normal life and for her to have a normal chance at a life in the future, so please just stop and respect EVERYONE’S wishes and parental rights.
