The paparazzi is at it again, more than likely not the last time

I just read a small blurb about Scarlett Johansson crashing her car into another while trying to escape photographers who were chasing her. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. A few months ago, Lindsay Lohan was also involved in a car accident, when a photographer actually crashed into her to stop her so he could get a picture. Where does this stop? Even the death of Princess Diana couldn’t stop this apparently.

I don’t care if these idiots want a picture of Britney Spears shopping for groceries, but when they start to endanger the public, I think something should be done. The stars have brought this on themselves. They may not want to be famous, but this goes with the territory when you become a well known figure in the entertainment industry. Many of us who aren’t making millions of dollars would be happy to be chased by the paparazzi, but Joe Schmo didn’t ask to be involved in car chases between celebrities and overzealous photographers. I would like to think that the law could do something about these morons who cause these accidents to happen, but I see a growing trend when it comes to these incidents. Hopefully we won’t have to wait for someone to be killed or seriously hurt before something is done.
