Earlier this year, Lorde wrote on Twitter that she felt harassed and threatened by a certain photographer in her home country of New Zealand. Now, Katy Perry's taken to Twitter to slam the paparazzi in Australia as "perverted" and "disgusting."
Katy's Down Under for her Prismatic world tour and according to Entertainmentwise.com, she was visiting a park dressed in a bikini top and shorts when she was harassed by photographers who wouldn't leave her alone. She then posted a screen shot of a paragraph she wrote, saying, "Australian PRESS: you should be ashamed of your paparazzi & tabloid culture. Your paparazzi have no respect, no integrity, no character. NO HUMANITY."
She continued, "I was stalked by many grown men today as I tried to take a quiet walk to the beach. These men would not stop as I pleaded over & over to let me have my space. Many other people stopped to try to help but the paps continued to laugh at me & hold their barrels up and shoot.”
Katy went on to add, "They told me to make a 'deal' with them. Give them a bathing suit shot and they would leave me be. This is PERVERTED & disgusting behavior that should NEVER be tolerated, especially by people who do NOT want this. I will NEVER make a deal with paparazzi and I will not befriend anyone who perpetuates this kind of behavior.”
Katy then posted photos of three of the paparazzi in question, writing, "THESE ARE A FEW OF THE STALKERS."
By the next day, though, Katy seemed to be back to her old self, making jokes on Twitter.
