Justin Bieber - Photographers Taunt Justin Bieber With Comments About His Family

Justin Bieber has accused the paparazzi of tormenting him with cruel taunts about his mother and younger siblings just to get a photo of the pop star looking upset and angry.
The Baby singer has had several recent run-ins with snappers, and was investigated by Los Angeles police officers in May (12) after he reportedly lashed out at one overly keen photographer who tried to take pictures of the singer and his girlfriend Selena Gomez as they left a cinema during a low-key, romantic date.
He was subsequently cleared, but two months later (Jul12) he was allegedly tailed by paparazzi as he drove along California's 101 Freeway, resulting in a dangerous high-speed car chase.
Bieber fears the run-ins have tainted his good reputation as a role model, and now he's hoping to address his constant issues with the paparazzi in his new memoir, insisting he is tired of photographers who go too far.
In Just Getting Started he writes, "When someone is stalking you without a camera it is illegal, but if they are doing it with a camera it is somehow perfectly fine.
"I don't get that difference and I suppose I never will. When the paparazzi are nice to me and respectful, I am never afraid to have a conversation with them. But it's not okay when they come at me aggressively and don't respect my space because they are looking at me as a product and not a person.
"There's a misconception that I hate the paparazzi - I don't, I simply don't like the aggressive paparazzi... Whenever you see me getting angry or upset in the media, what you don't get to see on camera is how those people came up to me and said things like, 'Hey Justin, why are you such a punk lately?', 'Your mom is ugly', and, 'Your little brother and sister are ugly babies'.
"They literally yell stuff like that to try and get a rise out of me. Famous or not, saying terrible things about my family is completely unacceptable. And if they aren't going after my family, they're coming after me, swearing, saying the most horrible things ever, even calling me white trash - which is kind, compared to the other things they've thrown at me."
