She's been pushed into the public limelight through no fault/desire on her part. Her public grief, her appearance and demeanor, have been put under a microscope and opened to public criticism. She didn't ask for this- didn't go looking for this attention. She's there seemingly trying as best she can to do right by her lost friend and do the right thing in general. She's not particularly polished. She doesn't suffer fools. She's authentic and loyal and grieving for her friend.
