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, the Kyle and Jackie O show have exclusively learned that it appears the drone DIDN’T belong to a member of the paparazzi - but a 10-year-old child from Sam’s neighbourhood.
Our 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!
