Does anyone else not blame Chris Martin for yesterday's fiasco?

I saw the video of Chris Martin and the photographer. Can't say I really blame Martin for his actions.

Who knows what he and Gwyneth are going through right now. A miscarriage perhaps?

And then the videographer can't believe that Martin is going off on the guy. And then he threatens to break his car door if he doesn't give the guy back his camera.

I'm sorry, but paparazzi are the scum of the earth. I heard that a couple of them got hurt following Britney Spears around. Is that what your life has come to? Do you really want to get hospitalized following around that skank?

Paparazzi fill a demand. If stupid people didn't read crap like <i>People</i> magazine and watch Entertainment Tonight and E and weren't obsessed with celebrities and their personal lives then there would be very few paparazzi.

Wendersfan is right. These Paparazzi are pieces of shit but it takes people who buy these magazines and watch these shows to give them the job. I dont understand this obsession with the personal lives of famous people. I enjoy hearing them speak about their work in interviews but i find it uncomfortable and boring for me personally when I hear them talk about their personal lives.
I dont support any of these gossip mags or tv shows and and i think Martin was not to blame and he should have beat the shit out of those inconsiderate assholes.

I agree 100%.

It's one thing to follow their work and listenening to them discuss the creative process, but it's another thing to follow and care about their personal lives. Why people care about who they're dating, their sex lives, clothing, etc is beyond me. It disgusts me to see people reading these rags.

A chick at work refused to watch any movies with Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt because of Pitt apparently cheating on whatsherface with her. Don't know if it's true, don't care... but to base your decision on something like that is ridiculous. It's really retarded when they take these things personally.

Actually, it's people like Paris, Britney and Lindsay who are ruining if for people like Gwyneth, Brad, Angelina and Tom Cruise. The latter don't want anything to do with the paparazzi. The former are trying to do everything they can to get more limelight. By outdoing each other. It's like a Whore Off.

That audio is great. That's probably the most stereotypical greaseball New York voice one could do...and it's real! What a loser.

I disagree with the Wenders comment. Entertainment Tonight has been around much longer than the nutiness of the paparazzi. The police need to step in as it's gotten way out of control. I beat down fucker like those if they got in my face at a bad time like that.

Yeah, it's easy to say that but put yourself in his shoes.

Your wife just got out of the hospital. Do you really want some greaseball 2 feet away from you taking your picture?

I'm sure these celebs can only take so much and then they finally just snap. Like Martin did. Like Nicholson did. Like De Niro did. Like Sean Penn did.

ET's been on the air since 1959? That's news to me.

It's rumored that Paltrow is pregnant again.

But then why does the guy keep asking if she is OK?

That's why I think she miscarried.

I do love the voice. He should have a job dubbing videos so that we can hate those people more.

Edit: I see two people have now used the term "greaseball". Perhaps it happens so often that he relishes the term at this point. He probably loves the noteriety it gives him (after all, it's his video).

Why sign off at all? We aren't posting with walkie-talkies. We know when the post ends.
