Blake Lively is in full-on Mama Bear mode, so you better watch out.
The mother of three has HAD IT with the paparazzi and their creepy ways of trying to snap photos of her children.
While most people were probably saying ‘TGIF’ and headed out for a night on the town on Friday, July 16, Blake was writing up a heated and impassioned message to the paparazzi.
The outlet published a photo of Blake smiling and waving. This pic was placed next to a separate snapshot of the A-lister pushing daughters James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty, 21 months, in a stroller.

Daily Mail Australia captioned the seemingly “friendly” photo of Blake, “Blake Lively is a hands-on mum as she expertly wrangles ALL THREE daughters while out in NYC.”
Blake responded to ‘DMAu’ in a lengthy note.
“You edit together these images together to look like I’m happily waving. But that is deceitful. The real story is: My children were being stalked by a man all day. Jumping out. And then hiding. A stranger on the street got into words with them because it was so upsetting for her to see,” the mother of three wrote.
Her message continued, “When I tried to calmly approach the photographer you hired to take these pictures in order to speak to him, he would run away. And jump out again at the next block. Do you do background checks on your photographs you pay to stalk children? Where is your morality here? I would like to know. Or do you simply not care about the safety of children? The photographers who would speak to me, I was able to agree to smile and wave and let them take my picture away from my children if they would leave my kids alone. Because it was frightening. Tell the whole story Daily Mail Australia At minimum, listen to your followers.”
Papa Bear and Mama Bear!
She praised the followers for knowing how dark and upsetting it is that the publication pays people to stalk children.
Blake concluded her message, “Please stop paying grown ass men to hide and hunt children. There are plenty of pictures you could’ve published without the kids. Please delete. C’mon. Get with the times.”
It appears Daily Mail Australia got her message loud and clear, because any trace of this particular Instagram post has been wiped from their social media account.
Famous IG account, Comments By Celebs, reposted Blake’s message to which she responded.
On the repost, Blake wrote, “Thank for sharing. One simple thing people can do is stop following and block any publications or handles who publish kid’s pictures. Feel free to report them. Or send a dm sharing why you don’t follow them. But it’s a simple way of only aligning with publications who have morality. And so many do. All are trying to service an audience.”
“So if that audience makes it clear they don’t want something —like photos of children obtained by men frightening and stalking them— the publication or account will do what the audience wants. It’s the only way that so many have already stopped. Because the people demanded it. So thank you to everyone who’s made that difference already. And thank you again for sharing. It’s f***ing scary,” she wrote.
