Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard call for a boycott of magazines that pay for photos of celebrity children

By Rebekah Penner ,

With their daughter Lincoln’s first birthday coming up in two months, married actors Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have called for a boycott on magazines that pay for photos of celebrity children and subsequently publish the photos.

Since they haven't released any photos of their daughter to the public themselves, this boycott comes as a result of paparazzi pictures that were published of their daughter for the first time, according to The Huffington Post.

Shepard and Bell took to Twitter to vocalize their frustration with the issue.
“Please boycott magazines that run pics of ‘celebrity children.’ They shouldn’t be punished for who their parents are. Children shouldn't be stalked,” tweeted Shepard.

Bell followed suit with three tweets saying she would no longer agree to do interviews with publications that paid for photos to be taken of her "baby anymore."

This isn’t the first time celebrities have worked to regain the privacy of their children. As previously reported, a California state law was passed in September 2013 when Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry urged officials to support. SB606 is a law that would penalize photographers for taking photos without consent of parents and harassment.

With problems still persisting, Bell tweeted, “Things won’t change until the consumer does.”
