Is it wrong to punk celebrities?

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are recent victims of an online troll who distributed fake photos of Scott cheating on Jenner. Neither were amused by the prank. (Neither was the rest of the Kardashian clan.) While some argue celebs have feelings and shouldn't be subject to online trolls, others argue it's the price of being famous.

Ashton Kutcher made "punking" celebrities popular in the aughts on his hit show "Punk'd," where he pulled off elaborate celebrity pranks. Some may be surprised he didn't burn too many bridges and still has a viable career. 

But "Punk'd" was all in good fun and existed before the popularity of social media really started to boom. These days, folks online are simply trolls and think just because someone is a celebrity, they don't have feelings.

Some argue the Kylie Jenner-Travis Scott prank was only for laughs. Celebrities are going to be targeted. It comes with the frame.

But many fans feel for Jenner and Scott after the impersonator posted the fake photos. The prank went too far, and pranksters shouldn't troll celebrities just because of their status.
