Kristen Bell lashes out at People magazine for using photos of celebrity children in their publication. Kristen and her husband, Dax Shepard, have spoken out against media outlets purchasing photos with celebrity children after a paparazzi snapped the first photo of their daughter Lincoln last month.
“interesting that @peoplemag claims 2b “#1 site 4 celeb news” yet no mention of the news @daxshepard1 & I have made abt the #pedorazzi… hard to print a story that condems your own behavior? Do whats right @peoplemag – stop buying pedorazzi photos.”

The tweets have since been deleted, but Kristen continued to spread the message by tweeting, “dear @peoplemag -scaring & harassing kids isn't "entertainment news". pls agree to stop using #pedorazzi shots. #nokidspolicy RT IF U AGREE… i apologize 2 those who must be annoyed all my tweets relate to the #pedorazzi. i feel strongly on this issue & really want to see change.”
Kristen and Dax are working hard to put a stop to the paparazzi’s behavior, sitting down with Today to speak more openly about it all. “We have chosen this life and that’s why we are not asking you to boycott magazines that we are in. We are asking you to boycott the magazines where people haven’t made that choice,” Dax explained.
“It’s all how the child is affected. That’s the bottom line,” Kristen said. “We had always had an agreement that when this little thing came into the world, all bets were off, no pictures would happen. We now have a duty as parents to protect this little one.”
Kristen goes to explain that it’s up to the general public to put a stop to all of this. “if the consumer says, ‘No, we don’t want this anymore,’ the publications don’t pay for the pictures. The paparazzi aren’t getting paid, they stop taking pictures of the kids. That’s the mathematics.”
