Lorde is Tweeting mad at a photographer. The 17-year-old singer called out paparazzo Simon Runting for "stalking" her over the weekend, posting his photo and Facebook profile to her 1.57 million followers.

"This man has been stalking me, photographing me and and refusing me privacy. I am scared of him. He frequents central akl," she began. "This is his Facebook," Lorde wrote, with a link to his profile.

We doubt he'll be getting a friend request from the "Royals" singer anytime soon. "This should not be an accepted standard for young women or anyone in this industry," she continued. "I refuse to stay complicit and I refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear. I understand that this comes with the territory. I do not understand why I should be be complacent," she concluded.

Simon has also taken photos of Rihanna before. Lorde's Tweets have spawned an Twitter account called "StopSimon" and the hashtag "#StopSimonRunting." Good for Lorde on calling him out!
