Just Jared Joins Fight Against Paparazzi Photos of Kids

Just Jared Joins Fight Against Paparazzi Photos of Kids

Exciting announcement!

Effective immediately, JustJared.com and JustJaredJr.com will be enforcing a #NoKidsPolicy, which means we won’t be publishing unauthorized photos or videos of celebrities’ children who are not public figures themselves.

Here’s a little recap of how we came to this decision: Last August, Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry championed a paparazzi bill that was signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown to impose tougher penalties on photographers who harass children of public figures. While enacting this bill was a step in the right direction, kids are still being intimidated, harassed, and stalked.

Recent discussions I’ve had with actresses Blake Lively, Jaime King, and Kristen Bell prompted me to take the next step at Just Jared by suspending the use of unauthorized photos of celebrities’ children throughout our sites. What does that mean for JJ readers? We won’t be posting photos of children of public figures without consent. All of the paparazzi shots of kids playing at the park, catching a flight at the airport, and walking to school will be off limits. Exceptions to the rule include consensual photos like public figures with kids on the red carpet, at sports games and concert venues, and pictures shared directly via social media.

I’d personally like to thank each and every one of you for your support throughout the years. Some of you have been loyal readers even before I launched JustJared.com in 2005! Yes, it’s been that long.

    Thank you! I truly believe that it is wrong to publish pictures of their kids. Just being born to a celebrity should not negate the child’s right to privacy. I applaud your actions!!

    Thank you Jared!!! I am very proud of you. I have been saying for years that it is wrong to take photographs of minor children without the permission of their parents. For years we have seen the paparazzi stalk children of celebrities even when they were at the park with the nanny and their parents weren’t there. It is dangerous and very scary for a child. It is an ugly way to earn money. I am glad you are taking a stand.

    I really applaud this decision. But I think it’s irresponsible, considering the environment of Hollywood (and Los Angeles), for celebrities to bring kids into this world and not expect to be followed everywhere with cameras (and furthermore, not expect it will affect them negatively). It just shows you how either ignorant, or selfish, many celebrities are.
