Petition Statement

We're asking you NICELY, Hollywood... PLEASE STOP HARASSING our favorite Celebrities just because we LOVE THEM and re-evaluate the integrity of your own industry reporting standards. We believe that the rights to LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS (which includes the most basic rights to personal freedoms and privacy) should belong to them as much as to us, their Fans.

We either need 21st Century Laws to accommodate our instantaneous, money-grubbing, techno-media culture; OR Hollywood Gossip Magazines AND Paparazzi can TAKE IT UPON THEMSELVES to UPGRADE the STANDARDS of their own professional ethics INCLUDING the integrity of their information and image gathering practices - DESPITE the GENEROUS FREEDOMS you have so freely ABUSED to your maximum PROFIT by INFLICTING PR ASSAULTS on our FAVORITE Celebrities AND us Fans in the process!

For instance... We would really rather NOT like to see anymore OBVIOUSLY-underhanded-captured video OR photos of any Celebrity running and/or hiding from invasive flashbulbs, being cornered and/or car-chased, being STALKED and followed (like you did with the recent "Robsten" scandal), their kids CRYING in terror (like Kate Moss's video!), being harassed and yelled at as they're trying to walk peacefully through the airport (or anywhere else), NUDE from DISTANCE in a PRIVATE-Holiday bungalow (like Princess Kate!!).

You get the idea... If we supposedly just CAN'T "legally" change things, SURELY you can figure out a way to insert more INTEGRITY into your own "storytelling" practices if for no other reasons that it being a FAN COURTESY for all the money we have poured into your Industry of Celebrity Mistreatment to date; and to rejuvenate and redefine the future of Hollywood and Fandoms toward more enlightened and WORLDWIDE 21st Century ethics.
There are currently 55 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

We Fans - your audience - believe that the Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness part of the US Constitution should apply to the personal and private lives of Celebrities as well as to our own. A request for Hollywood Gossip Media publishers, editors, paparazzi and reporters to voluntarily upgrade their own industry standards to 21st Century Worldwide ethics.
