Paparazzi have, rightly, earned themselves their notorious reputation from the intrusive and aggressive tactics they employ to get a shot. It seems, sometimes, that there is no barrier as to what is acceptable behavior for a Paparazzi to adhere to. In this video a reporter from Vice decides to turn the tables and hunt the hunters. Warning: This is controversial to say the least with explicit language and vulgar content. Many have argued with this segment, saying most of the problem lies with the media companies who purchase celebrity pictures and video. What’s your opinion?
In the first part of the video we see an anonymous Paparazzi photographer being questioned as to his motives and methods, and he reveals that there is a sort of “code” between Paparazzi.
In the second section of the video, the Vice team takes to the streets near popular celebrity venues and starts confronting the resident Paparazzi. Far from being aggressive and defending their territory and integrity, they tried to hide or run away from the Vice cameras. It seems that although the Paparazzi lack many things, shame is not one of them.
