I do not believe that the paparazzi should be banned. Although, there are many who go to extremes and completely invade a celebritie's personal space, not as many do. This is not an debate on those few, but paparazzi as a whole. It is their job. It is how they earn money. So many magazines, newspapers, and websites depend of photos and news on celebrities which is found through paparazzi. Also, part of being a celebrity is being in the public eye. It comes along with being famous.

Here is where you are wrong. When you turn your T.V on, there will be swarms of paparazzis running and tripping and bumping into one another. This not only has injured the celebrities, but they the paparazzis themselves. There have also been any cases in which they have taken pictures on school property, which is against the law, and also are a hazard on the highway, chasing after people for that one photo. And all for what? They invade on peoples privacy for a couple hundred bucks if they're lucky, when they could be working a real job like normal people. No one forces them to be a paparazzi for a living, because for one, they really don't make a lot of money that way, and two, it's an un-becoming job that people with too much time on there hands who don't want to work do just to annoy celebrities and get in on the somehow appealing action.

Because my opponent forfeited his round, I can only add that anyone who has to rely on paparazzis to entertain them by pictures and petty gossip of other peoples lives, then they are pittiful. Celebrities? It seems to me that the ones who get the most attention are the ones abusing drugs, in trouble with the law, losing there children, going mentally crazy, and getting knocked up without being married. If these are the people you look up to, then you are a sad little woman. And to all those watching this debate, I sincerly hope you don't rely on other peoples lives to live yours.

Because My opponent forfeited her round, I again have litle to debate. So voting will have to rely on past arguments. I apolojize, but I would have debated if given an arguement.

I am so sorry. I have been soo busy this whole week and weekend, but I would love to debate this issue again with you if you would like. I promise that I would be more responsive, for not replying to debates is not how I usually am. I apoligize, but thank-you! :)

This ought to be interesting. I think the paparazzi are appalling and the people that they take the pictures for (the sad and tragic people of society without interesting lives of their own) should get a life.
