Ick. I’m Happy I’m Not Famous

This video makes me feel ill. While yes, thankfully, it pushed lawmakers to pass a bill to fine paparazzi for acting like this, it doesn’t really seem like enough. Stars are constantly hounded like this, and while the above is so much worse due to her child being there.

What could be done about this kind of thing, realistically speaking not much. Technically if even you or I were in a public place there isn’t much to prevents people from taking our photo. You and I of course won’t be hounded, but famous people are.

Yet, unless people stop buying these kinds of magazines (yes, the linked article is ironic now) there isn’t really a ‘stop’ to it.
