Justin Bieber paparazzo killed: On Tuesday, a photographer was killed by a vehicle while chasing pop star Justin Bieber. In today's celebrity-driven culture, how can paparazzo tragedies like this be avoided?
The incident harkens memories of Princess Diana's tragic death 15 years ago. While this time it was the paparazzo – not the celebrity – who paid the price, this tragedy raises again questions about privacy vs. First Amendment rights, stalking vs. publicity, and the perception of "the money shot."
The photographer, whose name has not been officially released, was chasing Bieber’s white Ferrari. According to CNN and gossip site Gawker, the photographer crossed Sepulveda Boulevard and began snapping pictures while the car was parked.
