Robert Pattinson Fans Fight Back Against Paparazzi

Fans of Robert Pattinson have launched a bid to try and stop the actor being harassed by the paparazzi.

The campaign, a joint collaborative effort between a number of fan sites, is calling for an end to candid shots of the 23-year-old Twilight star.

It follows pictures of Pattinson leaving the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood on Saturday with his arms over his face.

“We want the paps to know that we don’t want to see pics like these, so stop tak­ing the,” a statement on website Thinking Of Rob said.

“Stop invad­ing his pri­vate life. Enough is enough. Because no per­son deserves this, celebrity our not.

“There are lim­its and you have gone too far. He doesn’t want this, nei­ther do we!”

The campaign wants fans to post banners on their tribute pages with the message: “He Doesn’t Want This, Neither Should You.”

More than 600 fans have also taken pictures of themselves with their arms over their faces in protest.

Pattinson is currently appearing in New Moon – the second installment of The Twilight Saga.
