Paparazzi hound Utada Hikaru as she arrives in Japan

I saw this today and it's just terrible. Let her mourn in peace. The video is especially heartbreaking.

Through Google Translate, I think that the second link mentions that they were surrounded by around 40 reporters :(

No, what we should expect is for paparazzi to stop operating like a heartless machine in situations like this, not that Utada should live with the idea that people are going to set flashes off in her face while she tries to mourn the loss of her mother.

We need to be holding paparazzi, fans and other people inclined to do this nonsense to a higher standard, not blaming celebrities for not "expecting" to be treated like they're an exhibit at fucking SeaWorld. The problem is not with them.

Tell that to them then.

Ooh. Aren't you ~edgy~.

I do. A lot. I'm pretty active on Twitter. That statement applied to you too, since you think she should "always expect her photos to be taken everywhere she goes."

No I'm not edgy and you people should stop being overly sensitive about everything.

Or maybe you should examine why everyone else is upset and finds this distasteful and you're the only one in the room who doesn't find anything wrong with sticking a camera in someone's face after their mother dies, mid-funeral.
