Paparazzo Death Even Gets Roger Ebert's Attention: 'Who Cares If Bieber Smokes Pot?'

justin bieber roger ebert paparazzo death opinion

Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Neil Patrick Harris is giving their opinion on the death of Chris Guerra. Hot on the pursuit of Justin Bieber's car, the paparazzo lost his life following a fatal blow from an oncoming car as he tried to cross Sepulveda during a traffic stop.

We even dished some more of our own feelings on The Talk, offering opinion of Bieber himself, but now we've learned that even film critic Roger Ebert wants to chime in!

It began with a tweet:

And then he turned it into his own blog post, which includes such passages as:

"I cast no blame. To be a paparazzi is a occupation we recognize in our culture. The mass media has an insatiable appetite for fragments from the lives of celebrities. This is not new. Circa 1960, the photographer Ron Galella became as famous as some of his targets because no one was more determined to capture the moment."

"Looking at online news, I find that the tragic death of Chris Guerra has inspired yet another round of calls to put an end to the Paparazzi Culture. This round will be as meaningless as all the previous rounds. We create a market for celebrity photos, and the economy assures it will be supplied."

All very interesting points. We mean, we've even seen multiple celebrities buy tabloid magazines! The demand IS out there. And he's right. It IS very strong! We should know, LOL!

But that still doesn't mean there can't be compromise… or does it?

    David. I just agree… Juan`s st0ry is inconceivable, last week I bought Volkswagen Golf GTI after making $7889 recently and-a little over, ten k last month. this is actually the easiest job Ive ever done. I actually started 9-months ago and straight away began to bring in more than $86 p/h. I follow the details here,

    Compromise? You make a living off this Perez. I noticed the new feature where the common folk can buy the crap celebrities wear right here on Perez Hilton's site. You sold your soul to the highest bidder.

    To Lacroix: Should we deport most celebrities such as Jack Nicholson and much of the youth of taday who smoke pot or cocaine. Smoking pot is not as bad as hating on someone you don't really know except for sensational overblown stories in the media.
