Lorde Calls Out Stalker/Paparazzo On Twitter, Claims She Is Afraid Of Him!

A New Zealand-based photographer named Simon Runting must feel a little embarrassed today. 17-year-old Lorde went on her Twitter account Saturday to publicly humiliate the paparazzo.

The singer-songwriter started her public shaming by posting a photo of Simon Runting (seen down below) and writing, “this man has been stalking me, photographing me and refusing me privacy. i am scared of him. he frequents central akl.


She then continued her assault by posting scary, long-range photos Simon snapped of Rihanna standing outside her hotel room.



But wait, there is more! Lorde wanted to make it clear that young women in Hollywood shouldn’t have to accept this.

“i refuse to stay complicit and i refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear. i understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent.”

It’s not just Lorde who hates this Runting character. Rihanna also complained about the photos he took of her last year, “I hate these n***** more than Nazis.” She wrote on her Instagram account back in October.

Simon is known as “the world’s least discreet paparazzi photographer.” I guess that makes him King in Paparazzi land. You think rookie paparazzi photographers have posters of Simon on their wall? Just wishing that one day they will be as hated as he is.
