The celebrities we all love are just as likely to use that small hand gesture as anyone else. According to E! more than just a few have been snapped in recent weeks making a gesture that might be considered to be offensive. Are they just irritated or do most of them need some schooling in basic manners?
Sometimes it’s caught on camera, much to their dismay. (or perhaps not.)
From just wanting some shopping time, to out riding motorcycles, to red carpet events, they have been at times known to want some privacy from all of the camera snapping that comes with their status. It does tend to promote frustration I suppose.
Reportedly photographed recently “flipping the bird” are Justin Timberlake, Maggie Gyllenhaal,Avril Lavigne,Drew Barrymore,Brad Pitt,Gerard Butler,Ashton Kutcher,and even Cameron Diaz.(who did it quite discreetly we might add)
But in fact, just in case we’ve all forgotten the incident, even the Pres gets frustrated. George Bush used the same gesture once in a film clip he thought no one would ever see.
So do we owe them a bit of that, or should we keep on shooting those photos, even when the offensive middle finger makes its way upward?
