There’s one thing being followed by paparazzi when you’re by yourself or with other adults. But it’s a completely different ballgame when a child is involved, just ask Kourtney Kardashian. This week, tempers flared when Kourtney felt like photogs were going too far, during a recent outing with her one-year-old daughter, Penelope.
The 34-year-old was shopping in Beverly Hills with her daughter, walking on the sidewalk when she was swarmed by a number of photogs. At one point, Kourtney told the photogs,
Move so we can walk…Get out of the way. Get out of the way.
When asked a question by one of the photogs, she warned him:
Don’t talk to me ever, when I’m with my kid.
After being further prodded, she yelled at the photog,
Shut the f**k up!
Eek. Check out the clip for yourself.
This past September, actress Halle Berry (who has been very vocal about this issue) went to great lengths to fight for children’s protection against paparazzi. In fact, a bill was signed in California, so that Paparazzi and others who harass the children of public figures will face tougher penalties under the legislation. Halle and Jennifer Garner urged lawmakers to support the bill. Halle testified before several legislative committees that her daughter has been intimidated by photographers who follow them daily. Anywho, in today’s scenario with Kourtney and Penlope, did the photogs go too far? [Fish Wrapper, Associated Press]
