Paps: The Fans Fight Back “He Doesn’t Want This, Neither Do We”

We woke up this morning to a very unpleasant surprise. The obtrusive pap pics of Rob from last were the straw that broke the camel's back for a lot of us. We are thrilled to join up with Thinking of Rob to promote a fan movement saying enough is enough. And to be honest, we'd had enough of this a long time ago.

We are proud to be a paparazzi free site. We love Rob, and the rest of the cast just as much as the next person, but no one should be put through this kind of stalking. A celebrity owes us exactly what we pay them for.

Just in case you're confused, that means they owe us their time on the screen, the stage, the court, the field, etc. When they are "off the clock" they owe us NOTHING.

I have yet to grasp why the fact that someone is well known means that they should have no privacy. If someone treated your average citizen the way that celebrities are treated, they would be considered stalkers and peeping toms.

Due to recent paps pics of Rob that came out today and inva­sive ones taken before (chas­ing Rob while he’s dri­ving, tak­ing pic­tures of him from rooftops), the fans are stand­ing up and fight­ing back. We want the paps to know that we don’t want to see pics like these, so stop tak­ing them. Stop invad­ing his pri­vate life. Enough is enough. Because no per­son deserves this, celebrity our not. There are lim­its and you have gone too far. He doesn’t want this, nei­ther do we!

Here’s our way of fight­ing back, in less than 24 hours we were able to get 500+ pics of fans pos­ing with their arms over their face to show their protest. This is our way of say­ing leave him alone. We’re hop­ing this mes­sage gets across to the paps. Fans from all over the world sent in pics and trans­lated quotes.

Check out all the great fans and other sites working together to spread the message! Thanks again to ToR for starting this campaign.

***NOTE*** Apparently there is some misunderstanding here. We were never intending for anyone to believe those are pictures of Rob. And yes, those are my "short, fat, ugly fingers" that bring this blog to you, along with Kerry who is pictured at the top. I encourage you to go to the Thinking of Rob post and read all about the campaign.
We agree that the best way to fight the paparazzi craziness is to stop posting their vids and pics. That policy has been in effect here at Eyes of Amber for quite some time. We appreciate your support.
If you would like to contribute to the campaign, you may still send your pics in to ToR at thinkingofrob@hotmail.com.

I think the way we can really help him is #1 Do Not
Post any kind of picture and video by Pap. Ladies admit it we are as gulity as paz. Supply and Demand
these guys hassle them because public wants these
pictures. Our society has become so intrusive and less
respectful of our follow human. I realize the only way
I can help him and any other celebries is to just enjoy
their work, I think we forgot that they don't really owe
us anythink. All we really shoud enjoy is their work
not their personal life.The whole media is also
part of the problems, even the legit publications
published and buys photos from paz. Speaking for
myself I now chose to find website that will not post
anykind of paz pictures and will no longer visit site
with paz pictures.We should all just go back to basic enjoy the books and movies .

To LadyArt, Of course these are not pictures of Rob hiding from pixs. Please learn how to read! And carefully at that. We are encouraged to send pixs like this in to protest the pappz invading others lives especially our beloved Rob, Kristin and other cast members in particular since they seem to be targeted the most.
Read carefully!!!!!

To LadyArt: Of course these are not pictures of Rob, these are pixs of fans sending their pictures in to protest the pappz taking invasive pictures of Rob, Kristin and the rest of the cast in particular. They seem to be the ones that are targeted most often.
Please read carefully, I repeat, read carefully!!!!!!

If you are focusing on the fingers, you are clearly missing the point. Read it again.

This is a very good campaign & point!!! and AMEN to that!!! Maybe John Cusack should give Rob some pointers! He's always been able to stay under the radar.
