The actress and her two children, Luca and Banks, were out running errands whole three men followed the family, snapping pictures the entire time.
“Here I am just trying to get around with both my kids and I have paparazzi following me everywhere I go,” she shared on her Instagram stories. The video has since expired, but here is a screenshot from the clip.
Hilary Duff’s Son Luca Cries as Paparazzi Follows Them ‘Everywhere’
Running errands with kids is difficult enough, so we can understand her frustration over the added stressor.
“Two grown men, Three actually, one of them is running away. Just following me and my kids to every location I go to,” Duff says in the video.
She continued venting about the incident, saying that women shouldn’t have to deal with this type of intrusive behavior.
“In a world where women are getting all these rights, this doesn’t seem right to me at all.”
The Lizzie McGuire star then turned the camera to her son, who was visibly upset, to ask about his experience.
“How much do you like that the paparazzi follows you? Makes you sad, huh? You hate it.”
Unfortunately, this is hardly the first time Hilary Duff has had bad experiences with the paparazzi. Last year, while still pregnant with baby Banks, Duff shared this clip to Instagram, saying “This guy has been at my son’s soccer game this morning then followed me to my sister’s house and was basically parked in her driveway to get photos.”
She continued in her caption, “Followed me to run errands. I politely asked him to let me be and he continues to follow and stalk me down like pray for hours now. This is not ok. I am 9 months pregnant. When people say that’s what you get for signing up to be a celebrity it honestly makes me sick. This is every day of every month and it’s simply not ok. If a non-“celeb” (I’m sorry to use that word) was dealing with this the law would be involved.”
Luckily the paparazzi didn’t make it to her recent wedding to husband Matthew Koma. The two were recently married at their home in Los Angeles in an intimate ceremony with close friends and family.
The Younger star just gave fans a special look at her modern Jenny Packham wedding gown.
Here’s hoping that the relentless paps will leave this mama alone the next time she steps out with her kids.
