Not cool, paparazzi.
Justin Bieber has a new book coming out called Just Getting Started, and he reveals the "horrible abuse" he is forced to endure from the paparazzi, and the details are SHOCKING!!!
Here is an excerpt from his new book:
"When someone is stalking you without a camera it is illegal, but if they are doing it with a camera it is somehow perfectly fine. I don't get that difference and I suppose I never will.
When the paparazzi are nice to me and respectful, I am never afraid to have a conversation with them. But it's not okay when they come at me aggressively and don't respect my space because they are looking at me as a product and not a person.
There's a misconception that I hate the paparazzi - I don't, I simply don't like the aggressive paparazzi… Whenever you see me getting angry or upset in the media what you don't get to see on camera is how those people came up to me and said things like, 'Hey Justin, why are you such a punk lately?', 'Your mom is ugly', and, 'Your little brother and sister are ugly babies'.
They literally yell stuff like that to try and get a rise out of me. Famous or not, saying terrible things about my family is completely unacceptable. And if they aren't going after my family, they're coming after me, swearing, saying the most horrible things ever, even calling me white trash - which is kind compared to the other things they've thrown at me. Nice - not."
We know that most paparazzi dudes and gals are nice and friendly people, but those bad apples are really rupturing their image!!!
There's toeing the line and there's crossing it - and verbal abuse against one's family is CROSSING IT!!!
