There’s a saying that handling fame isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and, the biggest reason for that is the fact that there comes the point in the life of every celebrity when fame starts dominating and controlling their likes and dislikes. And, the same happened with Avengers: Endgame actress Scarlett Johansson. She has been a part of the MCU since a very long time and has created a big fanbase out there in the world. Her character Black Widow has been cherished and applauded by a lot of people over the years. But, paparazzi put her life in danger on Monday night.
Scarlett Johansson made her way to Jimmy Kimmel, Live! Show on Monday alongside her Avengers: Endgame co-stars Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Paul Rudd. She revealed that after leaving from the show, she was followed by 5 cars with tinted windows, and were filled with men. They simply chased her to the hotel and it was really scary for her because she was traveling with her daughter. In the process of chasing her, the follow-up cars broke traffic rules, also putting the lives of a lot of people in danger.
She narrated the whole incident. Read on:
“Yesterday, after leaving the Jimmy Kimmel Show, I was followed by 5 cars full of men with blacked out windows. They were running red lights and putting other drivers and pedestrians at risk. So they could follow me to find out where I was staying and subsequently stalk me. And my young daughter for the duration of my stay,”
“The paparazzi put people’s lives at risk, so they can wait for days in quiet neighborhoods in blacked-out cars. And try to follow me to the playground and photograph my child and other people’s children in a safe place that should be off limits but isn’t. All of this is perfectly legal. After yesterday’s incident, I felt it was my duty as a concerned citizen. Who was being pursued dangerously and stalked to go to the local precinct and seek guidance there. I would encourage others in a similar situation to go to the police.”
Scarlett raised her voice on this topic by highlighting the death of Princess Dianna, 22 years ago. She concluded,
“Women across the US are stalked, harassed and frightened and a universal law to address stalking must be at the forefront of law enforcement conversations. Until paparazzi are considered by the law for the criminal stalkers they are, it’s just a waiting game before another person gets seriously injured or killed, like Princess Diana.”
So, do you think that Paparazzi should have some serious rules and charges to restrict them from interfering in the lives of celebrities? Tell us in the comments section.
