In Touch Reportedly Used Drone To Fly Over, Spy On George Clooney Wedding
In Touch reportedly used a drone to fly over George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding, ushering in a new era of invasive and creepy tabloid reporting. The magazine, which fakes cover stories, fabricates miscarriages and exploits suicide, has apparently decided that it needs to replace its clueless sources with robotic surveillance of celebrities’ private moments.
According to the New York Daily News, an In Touch editor watched a live feed from the drone’s camera as it hovered about the Clooney-Alamuddin nuptials. The tabloid allegedly used the drone to take aerial photographs of the event, also reportedly using it to track the movement of guests and tip off photographers on the ground.
The Daily News reports that In Touch wanted to test the strategy in a “limited situation,” was pleased with the results, and now allegedly intends to expand its use of the technology. “We have begun using a drone, but we plan to use it only within the proper legal and privacy guidelines,” says In Touch in a statement. “It’s a great news gathering tool.”
Meanwhile, a rep for Clooney tells Gossip Cop the newlyweds heard about the drone but will not be commenting. We think the whole thing is creepy and invasive. What do you think about tabloids using drones to cover celebrities?
