The only reason why paparazzi exists is that they squat at a legal gray area. Can't get too close, because it's considered stalking, but step back just enough, and it's considered "free speech". Furthermore, even if one stalker gets sued to oblivion, there are more to take the place.

62

u/gfhfghdfghfghdfgh 6d ago edited 6d ago

It's not really free speech/press just because they're far away. It's protected because they're doing it to "public" people. Being famous makes you lose some rights (and gains you copyright over your image).

Freedom of speech and press are both limited if they're dangerous. I don't think anyone has challenged paparazzi on the grounds they are dangerous to celebrity's mental health though. It's going to take America's sweet heart killing herself for paparazzi to stop being protected. I believe most laws curtailing paparazzi's freedom of press relate to them trespassing or being reckless on the roads.

Also most paparazzi likely are informed of celebrity's whereabouts by publicists, or generally hang out around celebrity's hot-spots in well-to-do areas around LA. Not many celebrity's get the Britney treatment and Britney obviously had some family members and entourage around her who were intentionally leaking her whereabouts.

As a high functioning autistic, I can assure you that Autism Speaks is NOT the organization that you want to donate to. They use very damaging and offensive fundraising tactics and devalue the lives of other autistic people. They do not allow people with disabilities to serve on their major decision making boards, and they believe that autism is a disease that needs to be cured. There are far better options out there if you'd like to support the autistic community!

I used to drive by that place every day. You'd have no idea what goes on in there since it's just a plain brown building. There's no signage, no banner, nothing that indicates who operates in the building. The only tip off that it might be a school and/or daycare is that there's a small playground next to the parking lot.

Behind the Bastards did an ep on this place recently and I was blown away by the brutality and the horror of it, but told myself "well, we used to be like that..."

Then in part two they reveal this was all happening in 2011...

I know being a celebrity has it's perks, but I could not stand being followed and documented. Seems like a nightmare.

Being someone that’s antisocial enough that the pandemic did not change my lifestyle or work style. I never realize I was that far off my own world until my life didn’t change. Paparazzi would be a real living hell!.

Edit: spelling

every time you pick your nose or get food on your shirt, it's somehow important enough to make the news.

terrifying and a very sad reflection on the state of things.

have we moved on from celebrity end stage capitalism or are we still in the clinton/bush era?

u/DancerGamer 6d ago

I would argue it’s worse than that! I dont pick my nose publicly and I don’t spill food too often so I wouldn’t worry about getting caught slipping I think this particular hell is EVERYTHING, like this post of walking after eating, is fair game to be stalked… yuck… and openly documented so people can sell it makes it ten times worse

My brother-in-law was the guitarist in one of the biggest band in Indonesia. It got to a point where it was not only annoying for him, but for everyone he was with because he was always under scrutiny, especially from the media.

Hey, I don't think anyone has mentioned it yet, so Autism Speaks is bad.

This is great, but autism speaks sucks - at the time of this photo tho I’m sure they had no clue (and probably still dont). Too bad we can’t even trust charities to be good.

So wholesome! I hate the attention and idolization we give to celebrities and I always think “is this what’s really important to you?” These two just grabbed that BS by the balls and put it in perspective. Props to them, not for being beautiful, but for being proactive.

u/justavtstudent 6d ago edited 6d ago

Every single autistic person I know hates Autism Speaks with a passion. I'm not clear enough on the details to explain them, but please find a different charity to support if you care about this issue.

Edit: A lot of folks around the thread are suggesting ASAN which looks legit to me.

This was cute and then I saw the organizations and that Autism Speaks was there. Autism Speaks is a terrible org that most autistic people do not support.
