Hilary Duff Confronts A Paparazzi Photographing Children Playing
We all need people like Hilary Duff who are not afraid to talk about what is wrong and even stop it. When she saw a lone paparazzi photographing children playing in a playground, she decided to confront the man. Being a mother of two herself, the former Lizzie McGuire and Younger star decided to take matters into her own hands in order to stop something which was clearly uncomfortable for her.
Hilary Duff Steps In To Stop A Paparazzi
Duff posted the whole conversation between her and the photographer on Instagram. The whole conversation, until the point where the person himself becomes uncomfortable in getting filmed. During the whole argument, he brushed her phone away. Hilary Duff captioned the post:
“Paparazzi shooting KIDS. Go ‘practice’ your photography on ADULTS! Creep! Laws need to change! This is stalking minors! Disgusting!”
This was in reference to the photographer who kept saying that he was not breaking any laws and only practising photography, which is not illegal. He might be correct, however, the laws should also take into account ethics. He might be on the legal side, but definitely not on the ethical one. Take a look at the argument that was happening between Hilary Duff and him:
One user replied underneath the post:
“HIS IS INFURIATING. This isn’t about his job or his “rights”. This is about his OWN perceived POWER over others. I imagine it’s the only time this pathetic person feels any power in his life. I know it’s illegal for an adult not with a child to be inside a playground- how is taking pictures of children without parental consent legal?!??”
Hilary Duff has not confronted a creepy paparazzi for the first time. In 2018, when she was nine months pregnant with daughter Banks, Duff told a photographer in a car to stop taking photos of her. Duff later told that he was following her while she ran errands. Next, when she visited her sister Haylie Duff, and even to her son’s soccer game.
Quite shocking how the minds of some people work that they will photograph children as well for their own creepy reasons.
