1. Becoming a celeb really is a blessing. With stardom, you should expect to be stopped, asked for an autograph, a photo or even a small conversation. There are certain privacy expectations that are thrown out of the window when you become a household name.
2. However, with the emergence of Social Media, everyone and their little sister can become a reporter with “exclusive” content. Ford just gave me a Sony Webbie Camcorder for the FiestaMovement. Its a small flip camera that boasts an HD lens and it only set them back $160. With digital equipment being so cheap and so many video (even streaming) hosting websites out, you can capture media and have it out to the masses within minutes. You can be a street reported with no network backing.
I digress. with the emergence of Social Media, the laws need to be changed to meet and match the trend. As you saw in the video, the cops looked as if they had no power. All they could “legally” say was “You’re gonna start getting tickets for blocking the walkway”. There was no mention of personal space, proximity or privacy of a minor. I love being a street reporter, but i still beleive in personal space.
