Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard continue tabloid boycott campaign on TV

kristen and dax After starting a boycott of tabloids which feature paparazzi photos of celebrities and their kids via Twitter, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have taken the next step in their campaign.

The new parents have moved the boycott on TV and reached their first victory as Entertainment Tonight has agreed not to air photos or videos of children.

Appearing on the news show, Kristen said: “I’ve had famous parents tell me that they have to have, like, a mantra for their kids when they’re in the car, saying, ‘They can’t hurt us, they can’t hurt us, they’re just annoying’. It’s just not worth it.”

Dax added: “We think there’s a huge difference in a mother photographing her child in the home and 10 strangers chasing a kid on the street. A good friend of ours, Josh Duhamel, who’s the last guy who would exploit his child for his own popularity, he tweeted a photo of his child because the paparazzi would not leave their gates.”

    I support Kristen Bell’s and Dax Shepard’s campaign. It indeed makes sense when a mother takes a picture of a child and when paparazzi run after the poor kid to take a snap shot. Besides putting the picture of celebrities’ children can be very dangerous as people have different intentions and today many would want to earn money on kidnapping a child or do something even uglier. Unfortunately we live in a very uncaring world these days. So, I totally support the boycott campaign!

    Wow, finally I do see a good Hollywood couple who cares much more of their kid, than of their carrier and work in the cinema industry. Finally Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have given a good example to everyone around them by showing how they should treat their own children. Although I like reading all kind of news and rumors about the cinema stars or singers, I should say that I am not really a fan of the pictures of the celebrity’s kids. I mean it is horrible, there are a lot of very popular news and things to write about, why do the photographers chasing small children for Christ’s sake, and of course eventually their parents are getting very mad when they see that, maybe it is sort of hunting for the photographers to make the parents of those children mad, so they can catch the reaction of anger on their faces. The only thing I can say is that it is certainly not right, and I totally support Dax and Kristen.

    I totally agree with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard in their campaign against the sneaky photographers who use star’s children in order to get closer to their parents. I think it is not fair towards the poor children, as they haven’t done anything in order to go through something like this; their life is being pictured from all everywhere they go, which is not giving them a lot of freedom to enjoy their childhood. I am wondering how come that they are the only parents who are concerned with this problem, as it is pretty obvious same problem has occurred pretty much with all of the Hollywood families, though lately I have noticed the frightening tendency of cinema stars who are selling pictures of their new born babies to the magazines.

    Personally I am not that much into seeing the pictures of “star” babies, and do not really understand who is interested to see those, reading something nasty about their parents, hell yeah I am in, but watching their pictures su**s. Don’t have any idea who would like that, and from the other side, supply is being guided by the demand, so probably there are a group of people who really are interested in that, thank God I am smart enough in order not to enter their list. Hmm, maybe that is why the stars started adopting so many African decent children, they are competing with each other on the subject who will get more kids, and whose kids would look more exotic. I think it is gross, and it is the time for cinema stars to start caring more of their children, and paying some more attention to them, instead of caring more about parties and all sorts of addictions.

    Boycott, ha ha, that one is really funny and made my day as far as for now, they are not that interesting stars for the public in order to boycott anything. So what will Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard do if the photographers will keep taking pictures of the star children? They will stop eating, or they will stop performing in the movie or TV shows, or they will stop appearing in the streets, stop breathing, and stop working? What are they boycotting with? They are not Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in order to argue and dictate their conditions to the media, so sometimes it is much better to stay quiet and say nothing, in order not to look like an idiot later.
