What limitations should the paparazzi have, if any?
Transcript of What limitations should the paparazzi have, if any?
Paparazzi are photographers who take pictures of athletes, entertainers, politicians, and other celebrities, usually while they are going about normal life routines. Paparazzi tend to be independent contractors, unaffiliated with any mainstream media organization and pictures taken are usually done so by taking advantage of any opportunity.
Many experts consider the behavior of paparazzi to be synonymous with stalking, and anti-stalking bills in many countries have tried to reduce harassment of public figures and celebrities, especially in regard to minor children.
The term paparazzi was coined in the 1960 Federico Fellini film "La Dolce Vita." One of his characters was named "Paparazzo," which is an Italian word used to describe the annoying sound made by a buzzing mosquito. The paparazzi have been known for being aggressive and intrusive and constantly badgering celebrities. Paparazzi are known to get in the celebrity's face without any respect for the celebrity's personal space. These days, it seems like stars have less and less personal space.
The only solution that will prevent the paparazzi from invading the privacy of celebrities, stalking celebrities and distorting the image of celebrities is to enforce a law worldwide that prevents the paparazzi from doing these things. Many celebrities have gone against the paparazzi, including restraining orders, having laws made against them and even physical fights.
Paparazzi have put people in danger. Celebrities and themselves. Some paparazzi have gone as far as to chase a celebrity down, just to get a picture.
