Cool Paparazzi: Good guys or bad guys?

After reading that, I got to thinking....

Why do all of these celebrity figures whine about the paparazzi when they knew about the consequences of their profession? They can live with the money and fame, but can't live with one of the few down sides? I say if you chose to be a public figure, you have to be just that. They should be glad they're hounded, it means they still have their career.

What do you guys think?

They have a right to be annoyed. It doesnt matter how much $$ you make, cameras following you around is going to get annoying. But they should understand that it is a pretty big industry and people are only doing their jobs. Its a negative that comes with the job of being a celebrity but its not a big deal considering the benefits they get from being a celebrity

I think it's retarded when someone who works hard for a year, decides to go out and they can't because there are stinky, middle aged, overweight men fallowing them, taking their pictures without rythem or reason.

Then the celebrities have to call it a night early, they go into an elavator and they fallow them in there, all the way until they step inside their house.

I think it's one of the problems that comes with the territory of being famous. BUT at the same time some of these guys cross lines that should not be crossed and almost become stalkers....

far too many Paparazzi are scum. I don't give a damn if they are rich and famous, they should not have to walk through a mob of photographers in public just to get around.

NOBODY should have to put up with that crap. I mean come on Undi, those punks scale peoples walls at their homes to try and sneak pictures of them. Thats straight BS. The Paparazzi have even been the cause of death in Princess Diana's case. (yes I know the diver had booze in his system but if they weren't getting literally chased by multiple cars snapping pictures the dude would not have been trying to get away in the first place. )

and dont you find it really creepy that many of them basically only try and take pictures of peoples asses or get upskirt pics?
