Religious leaders and politicians are making decisions that effect how we live or lives or telling us how we should live are lives. Most sports figures just wants to play the game.
I would agree with you if the only audience watching are ppl who are set in their morals. However, since a lot of the audience is going to influenced by them and actions, their behavior definitely should be held to a higher standard. For example marshawn lynch wore a hat, 12 hours later the hat was sold out in 4 online retailers. The point is the influence that they have in peoples lives.

What makes someone a religious leader? Isn't it the fact that they are in some way or another at a higher place ?  They can't just be talking the talk.
To make it simple for Catholics it would be a Priest or higher.
I just found a new supply of forks!

So you would say the same for celebrities, rock stars and rap artists?
Eta: being influential  May put more of a responsibility to avoid influencing purple negatively but that doesn't mean that should be held to a higher standard. As it's a by product of their position. As opposed to religiousknow leaders and political figures who's position is to lead , one of which ways is by example.

Depending on the audience they are geared for, yes! If a parent allows their child to listen to rap, they cant blame the child for the inevitable profanity that'll come. Rap artists are geared to people to want to be "gangster", when a rap artist gets shot their records will fly off the shelves. However, a child celebrity star, one would hope they are being coached to realize the influence they are having on others.

Yes,
A big yes,
However, the thread/threads that led to this Q being asked necessitates further clarification...
Note that it is known that it takes someone of higher knowledge and clarity to be a Makil, as it is easier to be Machmir. If one paskins that everything is Assur, he will always be right - as it won't lead to anyone being Oiver a Lav. This is speaking of a very high level of leaders and not one without an abundance of knowledge that just holds a position of authority...
