The paparazzi chasing and yelling things at her child, which would no doubt be unnerving and infuriating.

In a recent interview on the TODAY show, Kristen said that she understands that paparazzi seeking photos of them is something they signed up for, but her child didn't.

"We're not saying that we can't be newsworthy. We're saying that our child is not newsworthy," she said of herself and husband Dax Shepard. "We chose to be the entertainers, so we never post...other than the birth announcement...we've posted nothing about her and we don't plan to."

The celeb couple has had enough and they each took to their Twitter accounts with the hope of exposing what really happens when the paps are trying to get those pics.

"Children shouldn't be stalked. #boycottusweekly #boycottstar #boycottpeople #boycottintouch #boycottboycottboycott," Dax wrote.

"The 'look at the celebs kid at the park!' teaches us a disengaged vouyerism. think abt how being followed by photos all day effects THE KID," Kristen chimed in.

While Kristen continued to share her thoughts on Twitter, specifically calling out Us Weekly and People magazine for using pictures from the #Pedorazzi, Dax instead wrote a lengthy essay, outlining his feelings on the subject. He also responded to some of the negative comments he had received on Twitter after launching his campaign against the paparazzi. You can read the whole thing here.

Kristen and Dax certainly aren't the first celeb parents to try to take a stand against the paparazzi. Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner teamed up back in August to propose Senate Bill 606, which passed in September and was supposed to put more protections in place for celeb kids against paparazzi, but clearly some celebs still don't think it's enough.

Do you think celeb kids should be off-limits for the photogs?
