Enough is enough. Hilary Duff is no stranger to the spotlight, but the actress couldn’t help but slam the paparazzi who followed her and her two children, son Luca, 7, and daughter Banks, 1, “all day long” while running errands yesterday. The Lizzie McGuire star took to her Instagram Stories to share video footage of the photographers standing in the near distance, continuously snapping pictures.
“Here I am just trying to get around with both my kids and I have paparazzi following me everywhere I go,” she shared on social media. “Two grown men, Three actually, one of them is running away. Just following me and my kids to every location I go to.”
“In a world where women are getting all these rights, this doesn’t seem right to me at all. All day long,” she continued. The mother-of-two panned the camera to her eldest son, Luca, who appeared to be in tears. “How much do you like that the paparazzi follows you? Makes you sad, huh? You hate it.”
This is not the first time the actress has expressed frustration with the paparazzi. Back when she was pregnant with her second child, she addressed a male photographer in his car and politely asked him to leave her alone.
“This is not ok,” she wrote on Instagram. “I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that’s what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it’s simply not ok. If a non “celeb”(I’m sorry to use that word) was dealing with this the law would be involved.”

This guy has been at my sons soccer game this morning then followed me to my sisters house and was basically parked in her drive way to get photos. Followed me to run errands. I politely asked him to let me be and he continues to follow and stalk me down like pray for hours now. This is not ok. I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that’s what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it’s simply not ok. If a non “celeb”(I’m sorry to use that word) was dealing with this the law would be involved
Stay strong, Hil!
