Kim Kardashian clearly wants the public to look at North West photos and pay attention to her baby girl. And that's fine. We are happy to ooh and ahh.
When it comes to paparazzi pics that celebs don't content to, however? You have to draw the line. As such, THG is happy to join the #NoKidsPolicy cause.
As of today, The Hollywood Gossip will not publish unauthorized photos or videos of celebrities' children. Ever. If they post them, okay. If not? No go.
Like other sites across the web, we are enforcing a #NoKidsPolicy after realizing the very real issues this causes for celebrity parents and their offspring.
In 2013, Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry championed a California bill that imposes tougher penalties on photographers who harass kids of public figures.
Said stars' children are still being intimidated, harassed, and stalked, however, and that's not something we want to be a part of under any circumstances.
There's a time and place for celebrity gossip. This is not it.
To clarify, this applies to paparazzi shots of children on the street, the airport, the park, school, home, etc. You will find no said pictures here as of now.
Consensual photos like kids on the red carpet, magazine spreads parents agreed to or pictures shared on Twitter (thanks, Kim Kardashian!), we'll still run.
Hopefully, other sites will join this worthy initiative.
