Wow….I guess that job is way more dangerous than I thought. Justin Bieber spoke on the matter….from ABC News:

“While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim,” the pop star said in a statement released by his spokesperson. The paparazzo, who hasn’t been named by authorities, was hit by oncoming traffic in Los Angeles Tuesday while taking pictures of Bieber’s white Ferrari. Bieber wasn’t in the car at the time.

“Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves,” Bieber added.
