Joel Madden Blasts Paparazzi for Scaring Harlow

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are used to the paparazzi following them 24-7, but when it comes to their daughter Harlow, Joel wants the photogs to back off!

He’s blasted the media frenzy that surrounded him and Nicole recently as they made their way through Miami airport. Joel took to his Twitter to express his anger.

He wrote: “These guys were sticking flashes in her face and bumping in to us and yelling. The most unnecessary force I’ve ever seen.”

He added: “It was the first time I’ve ever seen my child scared. Not cool for any parent to see. At least in LA they gave us some space.”

One good thing that did come out of the experience is that apparently the magazines aren’t buying any of the pics from that day.

But at the end of the day, Joel says he’s just happy to have his family. He Twittered, “And I do count my blessing. I know there are some people out there with ‘real’ problems. I never want to come off as complaining….just sensitive when it comes to my girls….”

Joel’s just a good dad trying to protect his toddler and pregnant wife! Anyone would have reacted the same way! A law needs to be put in place to remove paparazzi from airports. There’s just been one too many incidents.
