The paparazzi are notorious for causing a scene, ruining days (lives, even) and being downright intrusive. And yet without them, how would we have such glorious things as this picture of Beyonce looking like a Christmas tree?
Many celebrities have a love-hate (mostly hate) relationship with the paparazzi, even though the paps are the ones helping to keep the buzz around celebrities alive. But as we know all too well, the paps will go to extreme lengths to snap pictures of beloved stars, and they’re often extremely rude while doing so.
From Cara Delevingne’s up-the-skirt photo to Kylie Jenner getting “attacked,” these are the rudest paparazzi moments of the year.

When Khloe Kardashian encountered “scum paps”@khloekardashian

Justin Bieber’s naked vacation picsSplash News
Biebs’ penis pretty much ruled 2015. There was the Calvin Klein Photoshop incident, a couple nudies circulating the Internet, that infamous naked butt pic and then this. Justin was enjoying the Bora Bora sun when sneaky paps photographed his peen. He was pissed.
The dude who yelled “What that mouth do?” at Kylie Jenner
Some jerk followed Kylie Jenner to her car, asking her “what that mouth do” while mistaking her for Kendall. KyKy’s response? To whisper—yes, whisper—back, “Get the fuck outta my face.”
That time that paps sold pics of Bruce Jenner in a dressGetty Images

When Lady Gaga “took a tumble”Splash News
My hand is on my heart right now. Gaga, queen, this was not one of your finer moments in life. Praying to the photography gods to show a little mercy on you the next time your knees give way, but seriously, paps. Someone should have given the Lady a hand.
When Kylie “got attacked”
Kylie “got attacked,” presumably by paparazzi, a few months ago and no one came to her aid. Literally no one. Tyga, where were you when we finally needed you in 2015? Hmm? Everyone let KyKy down on that day. We all need to do better.
