Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard boycott magazines with photos of celebrity kids
Kristen Bell has made no secret of wanting to keep her daughter with Dax Shepard, Lincoln, out of the public eye. The "Veronica Mars" star said back in November that she felt bad for the first photographer who would try to take a picture of the baby, stating, "There are going to be a lot of stitches."
So it should come as no surprise to learn she and Shepard are calling for a boycott on all magazines that run pictures of kids without the parents' permission. It all started when Shepard tweeted a simple message, "Please boycott magazines that run pics of 'celebrity children.' They shouldn't be punished for who their parents are."
He added, "Children shouldn't be stalked. #boycottusweekly #boycottstar #boycottpeople #boycottintouch #boycottboycottboycott"
Bell followed with her own Twitter statement, writing, "I wont do interviews 4 entities that pay photogs to take pics of my baby anymore. I care more about my integrity & my values than my career. The 'look at the celebs kid at the park!' teaches us a disengaged vouyerism [sic]. think abt how being followed by photos all day effects THE KID. Now think about how you play the MOST NECESSARY role in the sad chain of events-the consumer. Things won't change till the consumer does."
The call for a boycott comes after paparazzi photos of the nearly one-year-old Lincoln were published for the first time, much to her parents' dismay.
