Doesn’t the media realize yet that only the Obamas are allowed to parade their kids around as props? How dare a photographer snap photos of them while on a public beach? It’s not as if there’s freedom of the press any more.
Paparazzi shots of Malia and Sasha Obama have been blocked by the White House after a photographer reportedly stumbled across the girls on a public beach in Hawaii.
The images of the President’s daughters were taken last week while a paparazzo was actually waiting for singer Jessica Simpson to leave her vacation home.
Secret service agents, who were accompanying the girls on their walk, immediately approached the photographer and asked for identification.
They allowed the man to keep his camera but gave him a stern warning to stop photographing the first daughters.
However when the paparazzo later sold the images to picture agencies, he was slapped with a warning letter from the White House telling him to stop their release.
A source told Celebuzz that the White House sent the photographer an official letter stating that ‘Sasha and Malia’s privacy should be maintained as they were on a private holiday… and that other media had been respecting these requirements’.
