I agree with you. The paparazzi are trying to make money off this. The actual story isn't very exciting. As defamer said:

Congratulations, Orlando Bloom! After last night's activities, you are now a member in good standing of the Celebrity Car Crash Club (The Quadruple C), where you will join such luminaries as Britney Spears, Halle Berry, Billy Joel, Lindsay Lohan, Rebecca Gayheart, Tara Reid, Brandy, and James Dean. In comparison with names like that, however, Legolas's crash seems kind of tame. Here's what happened: After leaving some lame Hollywood hotspot, Orlando got into his buddy's '03 Toyota Matrix. Shortly thereafter, he was cut off by another driver and slammed into a parked car. Police say that drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the accident. So, basically it was just that--an accident. Snooze! Of course, two additional passengers were injured (not fatally) in the wreck, but they're not celebrities, so we're not writing about them. That is all.

Boring. But boring won't get those pictures sold. So...

As for him walking away, I thought he wanted to get help and was a little dazed and thought he could walk and find some. He parked the car after the accident. Yeah, he really was trying to flee. Whatever.

I'm sticking up for him too. There are only a few facts and those support that he didn't do anything wrong. The rest is sources and bullshit.

I agree 100%!!

Then I hear he stayed with those injured girls all night in the hospital. Sounds like a good guy to me.......

I think some places are just desperate for dirt on him and will take anything they can get. Making crap up isn't beneath them either.

But what shocked me is reading that so many "fans" were quick to point the finger and be mean. I just never thought that would happen.

Yeah, I saw that too, that he spent the night with his friends.

People just want to knock him down. I have always noticed an undercurrent in the media of dislike for him for whatever reason. And I would put nothing past the likes of TMZ or X17. They make stuff up all the time, exaggerate, misconstrue intentionally, etc.

I wasn't shocked by some fans reactions. I've seen it a lot sadly. People that are fans but like to rip him apart. I don't get it. You know me, when he's done something I think is stupid or whatever I'll say it. But it just rip into him and wait for him to mess up so you can have a field day? Get a better hobby. Find someone perfect who never messes up to attack. And for this situation, it was just an accident. Like millions of people have every single day, there is nothing interesting or remarkable about this story. But of course, boring doesn't pay the bills.

I've noticed that trend too. I've really seen it since Troy. I'm betting media people are jealous and don't feel he's "paid his dues" so he's a target for negative press.

I just find it maddeningly annoying that so called "fans" are so quick to jump to conclusions and make accusations. What kind of "fan" is that. I can call a spade a spade and not blindly follow anyone. But I haven't seen anything that makes me thing Orlando is bad, a drunkard or a drug user. I just don't see it.
