A paparazzo was struck and killed by a car while attempting to take pictures of Justin Bieber‘s Ferrari, according to TMZ.

“While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim,” Justin said in a statement.

    @Princess Paparazzi?: How is the logic and comparison flawed? A number of people on other sites have compared the two incidents. They are similar in that people were killed because they were stalked by the paparazzi.

    Yes – agreed that it is always sad for a life to be taken. But these parasites know this and still push things over the edge every day. I’m surprised (and glad) that no innocent person has been killed by them charging through red lights and causing dangerous traffic situations either through their driving, or walking around the celebrities cars on the road. I do not understand why there are no laws stipulating a safe distance from them to the celebs. Even more so – banning them from areas like schools, and playground areas. You don’t know if it is a pap or a paedophile/pervert.

    of course he wasn’t ‘behind the wheel’ – I call bulsh<t – and in case you forget, celebrities CALL the paparazzi so the blame game is on both of them.. And for the people who are saying it's his fault.. well.. you need to either grow up or lock yourself in a closet until you're old enough to know right from wrong.
    Death is tragic so stop talking so much sh<t.. it's incredibly sad that someone lost their life for this.

    Not casualties necessary, but when stupid people like you keep reading the blogs and make money for all the gossip industry. Enough said right? If you don’t care about Justin or Gossip or hate paparazzi, what the hell are you doing here on Just Jared??? People with cameras will not have a job if people like you unplug from the gossip, so to fulfill your empty soul with fashion, gossip and news because your life it’s so sad, the paparazzi and celebs are there for that a a whole industry of money that you probably will never make because all you do is read blogs. To make sure your brain is filled with ****. It was an accident just like many others that we see it on the news daily, but this time s celebrity and a photographer is on the news, so thats entertainment for you as well, sad, but true…If you don’t like all thr above go watch National Geographic at your TV, if you can afford cable of course…

    @Answer: Well, you’re out here too, bub, so I guess you just felt the need to deflect?

    @Answer: Something tells me you are not a Nat Geo viewer yourself. ;)

    Answer Says:

    I am part of this industry. Just the people that are full of hate and complaints need to listen to that. We make money out of this like CNN makes money out of wars. Difference? One is called Politics sections and this is entertainment. In this case, sad one. I feel sorry for the driver, the photographer, and everybody in the scene, can’t comment on the accident as I wasn’t there. Yes I do read all the blogs daily and got no problem with none of them, celebs, paps, or anyone. Just outsiders pretending they hate gossip and guess what? They are here…

    Yes I am….when I’m off work and want to watch the real life without money and learn more about nature.

    @Answer: I get that the paps are just doing their jobs, and yes, they wouldn’t have those jobs if people like me didn’t come to these sites. But I also agree with Toni (#33) that the methods used to obtain the information is often extremely dangerous. There are too many stories about accidents resulting from people being chased by photographers.

    Paparazzi = douche bags Says:

    Paparazzi attributes = rude, selfish beyond words, classless, leech like, insensitive, mannerless, uncivil, pushy, relentless, merciless, uncouth, unlawful, nervy… Am I leaving anything out?

  24. 49
    Toni Says:

    I think also, that the good paps should oust the bad ones. Like the ones that take unlawful photos over peoples home fences, holding cameras under the skirts, follow the moms with their children, and especially the ones that heckle people – just to get a reaction off them. It’s no wonder that fights sometimes break out. I can imagine that if anyone of us was getting verbally abused by some stranger, that we would respond in some way. And Lord help the stranger(s) following and photographing my children. It’s these low life that make all the paps look really bad.
