You probably saw the tragic news that paparazzo Chris Guerra was struck by a vehicle as he crossed the street in an attempt to snap a photo of who he thought was Justin Bieber, pulled over by cops.
Except Bieber wasn't in his Ferrari, it was his protege Lil Twist who'd been driving the car. Bieber was nowhere near the scene.
TMZ reports that earlier in the day, Guerra spotted the cars of Bieber and Selena Gomez, who were expected to be vacationing in Mexico, in Beverly Hills. The thing was, he also said he saw the Biebs puffing from a pipe while driving. While a Bieber rep expressed regret about the incident, he didn't address the pot smoking allegations. What's weird though, is how Miley Cyrus and Bieber responded to the death.
Hannah Montana blamed the deceased by posting the following three tweets:
Hope this paparazzi/JB accident brings on some changes in '13 Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn't Princess Di enough of a wake up call?!
It is unfair for anyone to put this on to Justin's conscious as well! This was bound to happen! Your mom teaches u when your a child not
to play in the street! The chaos that comes with the paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices.
Super sensitive. We all have to work, Miley. And seriously, yeah, it must suck to be stalked 24-7, but certainly the luxurious lifestyle you enjoy has gotta make up for the stress of being chased around by underemployed photogs.
Meanwhile, Bieber put out a somewhat nonsensical statement: "Hopefully this tragedy
will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary
steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers,
innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves."
This doesn't even make that much sense, especially given that Guerra was
asked by the cops who pulled the car over, multiple times to back off from
the vehicle. Stop getting "political" and judgmental, rich famous people, just offer some sympathy for the guy and his family. Then, maybe we'll have a little more for you guys.
