Nearly 500,000 have signed a petition urging the British government to establish #carolineslaw, establishing "new & stricter laws around safeguarding celebrities and people in the public eye" following Flack's death on Saturday at age 40. According to The New York Times, "within hours, British social media was flooded with tributes to the star, who died while awaiting trial for assaulting her boyfriend. But those tributes were soon overtaken by something else: demands for a new law in Flack’s name, to stop Britain’s tabloid newspapers from publishing stories that relentlessly dive into celebrities’ private lives. Flack had been a tabloid fixture, having had romances with Prince Harry and Harry Styles, among others, and social media users accused the newspapers of harming her mental health." ALSO: Love Island UK paid tribute to Flack Monday after Saturday and Sunday's episodes were pulled.
