Actress Kristen Bell and her husband Dax Shepard have called on fans to boycott any magazine that run photos of celebrities' children.
The couple welcomed its first child, a daughter called Lincoln, last year (Mar13), and Bell and Shepard are now keen to protect the tot from eager paparazzi seeking to snap the first photo of their baby.
On Monday (27Jan14), the Parenthood star took to Twitter.com to vent his frustration over tabloids who continuously run pictures of stars' kids.
He wrote, "Please boycott magazines that run pics of 'celebrity children'. They shouldn’t be punished for who their parents are... Children shouldn’t be stalked."
Bell followed up with her own tweet, adding, "I wont do interviews 4 (sic) 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 voyeurism. think abt (sic) how being followed by photos all day effects THE KID.'
The Veronica Mars star added, "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."
Bell and Shepard aren't the only celebrities who have taken a stand against the paps - actress Jennifer Garner teamed up with Halle Berry last August (13) to campaign for an anti-paparazzi law, which imposes tougher penalties on cameramen who constantly tail public figures and their kids, and also makes it easier for parents to sue for damages over harassment.
The celebrity mums' efforts to change California law was a big success and the bill went into effect on 1 January (14).
