Who Flew A Drone Over Sam Armytage’s Backyard This Weekend?
When it comes to a person’s privacy, I think it’s somewhat universally agreed that it should be respected.
This is certainly how Channel 7’s Sam Armytage felt when she spied a drone flying over her backyard over the weekend.
She took to Instagram to show her distaste; “Saturday night; Pervy, stalker, weirdo paps hovering ANOTHER drone in my backyard (& front deck.) Calling police in now. ANY women's magazines or online gossip sites who buy these creepy pictures, had better be prepared for a fight. Fed up with this rubbish.”
Sam believed, quite understandably, that the drone was the work of the paparazzi, who were trying to no doubt obtain a candid photo of the morning show star.
Sam’s fans took to the comments under her Instagram post, urging the star to ‘get the police onto it’ and ‘draw a big middle finger on your roof.’
However, according to the Kyle and Jackie O show, it appears the drone DIDN’T belong to a member of the paparazzi - but a 10-year-old child from Sam’s neighbourhood.
Our sister station, KIIS 1065, had their paparazzi sources confirm that they are not responsible for the drone and it appears the child is just one of a group of children the same age who often fly drones around their neighbourhood for fun.
It's certainly a relief that in this instance, it was fortunate that there was no ill-intent with the drone, simply the working of young kids.
I bet they’ve learned their lesson and won’t be flying the drone over anyone else’s homes anytime soon!
