Paprazzi Killed in L.A While Photographing Bieber

The paparazzi: the annoying, overbearing, relentless photographers that all famous people love to hate are on their heels as they have finally found something to worry about while on the job. A young photographer died on Tuesday while trying to take pictures of Justin Bieber out in L.A.

While trying to snap some pics of Justin Bieber’s exotic white Ferrari he was struck and killed by a passing car – a death that has spurred renewed debate over dangers paparazzi can bring on themselves and the celebrities they chase. I get that this is their job but, at what point do they think “Wow, I’m being annoying and rude”. Apparently, never.

The incident has prompted some stars including Bieber to keep asking for tougher action or laws regarding the restrictions on the paparazzi. Though, they are kind of hesitant to move forward with any progress being held up with that thing you know…the First Amendment. No biggie.

In a statement, Bieber said his prayers were with the photographer’s family. The bad ironic part of all of this: the singer wasn’t even in the Ferrari on Tuesday. “Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves,” Bieber said in the statement released by his record label, Def Jam.

Even Miley Cyrus, who sent tweets that hinted that the incident was almost bound to happen. “Hope this paparazzi/JB accident brings on some changes in ’13. Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn’t Princess Di enough of a wake up call!?”
