    Re: celebrity culture victim

    It could be correct, though I think that a hyphen (celebrity-culture) might help- what's the context?

    Re: celebrity culture victim

    Thank you for both your answers.
    Sorry I took so long to answer but I've seen your answers just now.
    Here is an example of a full sentence: "He just turned into a celebrity culture victim like so many others. I lost all my confidence in him since then."

    Note my suggested changes above. Despite those changes, I would actually word your sentences like this:

    Like so many others, he became a victim of celebrity culture. I lost all confidence in him after that."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: celebrity culture victim

    How about trust/faith instead of confidence?
