Critics went for Justin Bieber after he ran over a photographer trying to get a close snap of the pop star yesterday. But the paparazzo came in defense of Justin himself calling him "a good kid".
Suffering non-severe injuries, photographer Maurice Lamont posted an Instagram video praising the "Love Yourself" singer for staying out to help. "I think the truck was a little too big for him though because there's no way he could see over the front. It was the slope it was on," he explained. "He (Justin) got out. He was compassionate. He's a good kid. Accidents happen."
Beverly Hills Policemen said Justin fully cooperated during the scene. TMZ, meanwhile, shared a video showing the Biebs quickly heading out of his car to check Maurice and asked him, "Is there anything we can do to help you?" The photographer insisted Justin's not at fault saying, "I always liked you man. You're a good guy. It was just a bad timing."
Justin, later, can be seen dismayed over paparazzi's continuous rolling instead of aiding the victim. "I can't see when you guys are all snapping," he said.
