Paparazzo Killed After Taking Pictures of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari

The term ‘paparazzi’ has been associated with Justin Bieber on more than one occasion (i.e. the time Justin was wanted for questioning after an altercation with a pap; the time he was cited for speeding at over 100 mph in an attempt to escape photographers). However, the events that involved both the singer and one paparazzo on New Year’s Day 2013 are more tragic than the previously-mentioned occurrences as said photographer was killed on the job.

WENN

According to TMZ, “A paparazzo attempting to shoot photos of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari was hit by another car and killed this evening — although Bieber was NOT behind the wheel of the Ferrari.” The site mentions that Justin’s vehicle was pulled over for speeding while the pap was following closely behind. The photographer crossed the street “to snap pics and was told twice by the [California Highway Patrol] to go back to his car on the other side of the road. When the photog tried crossing back, he was struck by an oncoming vehicle… and was killed.

And, even though Justin was not at the scene, he released the following statement: “While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim… Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves.

So far, the victim’s name has not been released.

Do you think the paparazzi go to far?

That’s it… Justin Bieber shouldn’t do that but i think it was still the paparazzi fault he shouldn’t have followed Justin and take pictures from him… but anyway it’s his job… poor paparazzi
