Lorde Used Twitter To Publicly Shame A Paparazzo She Says Has Been Stalking Her

And it’s this sort of thing that makes her Queen Bee.

1. Yesterday Lorde’s 1.5 million Twitter followers were shown a picture of photographer Simon Runting, who’s somewhat notorious in New Zealand.

2. And some of his work (he’s apparently the photographer Rihanna compared to the Nazis).

3. She then reposted his picture with a link to his Facebook profile, and once more with the comment “I refuse to stay complicit and I refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear.”

4. Runting has yet to comment on the tweets.

Last month the 17-year-old singer was picked by Nirvana to front their induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Dave Grohl said the performance gave him hope for the future of music.
