Surfer Dude

According the Associate Press, Matthew McConaughey hey hey was protected by some territorial surfers the other day.   A paparazzo trying to photograph Matthew McConaughey at the beach told police he was attacked by a mob of surfers who threw his camera in the ocean.    The 29-year-old photojournalist told sheriff’s deputies that a large group of  surfers near Paradise Cove in Malibu approached him and other paparazzi about 2  p.m. Saturday and demanded the group stop taking pictures and filmingSurfindude

“There was apparently a fight, and the photographer gave a statement
that he received injuries,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve
Whitmore said Sunday. Detectives are investigating, he said.

McConaughey was not involved in the attack, authorities said.  A call to McConaughey’s publicist was not immediately returned.

The celebrity Web site posted a video Sunday showing about a dozen young men in swimsuits approaching what appears to be a group of paparazzi and yelling and swearing at them.  A scuffle breaks out after one of the photographers exchanges insults with the group and at first refuses their orders to leave.  “I’ll give you a thousand bucks if you leave right now,” one of the young men in swimsuits tells the photographers.  Another shoves a photographer filming the scene, and still another says, “We’ll draw a line in the beach, and we’ll fight for the beach. If you guys win, you can have the beach.”  When one member of the group shouts at a photographer, “Get a … real job,” the photographer replies, “This is a real job. What do you do?”   The man replies: “I just drink beer and party.”
