Naomi May’s concerns about balance in celebrity documentaries are the wrong way round (From Beyoncé to Beckham: the worrying rise of one-sided celeb documentaries, 6 December). The subjects she mentions have been brutalised in the media. The attacks on them, from the Mirror’s David Beckham dartboard to the Mail’s description of Meghan Markle as “(almost) straight outta Compton”, will be in the public domain for ever.
