Hilary Duff called the cops on a photographer for taking pictures of her children. The overprotective mom lashed out at the photog for snapping photos of several children – including hers – playing a game of football.
The photographer assured Duff that he was simply practicing his sports photography.
The former Disney star shared a video of her interaction with the photographer alongside the caption: “Paparazzi shooting KIDS Go ‘practice’ your photography on ADULTS! Creep! Laws need to change! This is stalking minors! Disgusting!”
Cellphone footage shows the petite actress approaching the man and asking him to stop taking pictures of the kids, to which he replied it’s legal to take photos in public places, according to Page Six.
When Duff told him he was making her and the children uncomfortable, he offered to show her his ID.
“I’m asking you human-to-human, as a mother, if you don’t know anyone here, would you please stop taking pictures of our children playing football.”
She added: “and let people know how creepy it is that this is what you choose to do on a Saturday morning.”
Other actors supported Duff on social media. But some of her followers thought she overreacted to the situation when there was no apparent threat to her kids.
Duff is mom to 7-year-old son Luca and 1-year-old daughter Banks.
