Katy Perry Is Still Naming And Shaming Australia’s “Perverted Old Men” Paparazzi

Katy Perry has continued her social media campaign against Australia’s “tabloid culture” after paparazzi took pictures of Perry in her bathing suit while she visited a Sydney beach during the week.

Perry, currently in Australia for a country-wide tour, took to Twitter on Friday to post a detailed account of her run in with Sydney paparazzi.

The pop singer said at the time the Australian press should be ashamed of its tabloid culture, which has “no integrity” and “no humanity” after paparazzi tried to take snaps of her in a bikini in Sydney.

Today she relaunched her Twitter tirade to remind the public that any photos that may be printed or published online from her beach visit would be done so without her authorisation.

“Remember AUS anyone printing or posting unauthorized photos of me in a bikini from these DISGUSTING/PERVERTED OLD MEN is AGAINST my will!” posted Perry.

These codgers included at least three photographers, who Perry previously labeled as “stalkers”, and infamous paparazzo pest Jamie Fawcett. Perry singled out Fawcett in a follow-up tweet today.

“Also remember Jamie Fawcett we hv pictures of ur tiny penis & rather large gut.” Perry tweeted. “Ur a true sicko for taking pictures of us while being naked.”

On Friday, the singer posted a lengthy statement about the original incident to her socials. “You should be ashamed of your paparazzi and tabloid culture,” Perry said. “Your paparazzi have no respect, no integrity, no character. NO HUMANITY.

“I was stalked by many grown men today as I tried to take a quiet walk to the beach. These men would not stop as I pleaded over and over to let me have my space.

“Many other people stopped to try to help but the paps continued to laugh at me and hold their barrels up and shoot. They told me to make a ‘deal’ with them. Give them a bathing suit shot and they would leave me be.”

Perry said she would “NEVER make a deal with paparazzi.”

Alongside her tour dates, Perry will also make a special guest appearance at the 2014 ARIA Awards. You can check out Perry’s tweets below.
