Video of the Day: Malibu Surfers Attack Paparazzi

On Saturday, two paparazzi were reportedly injured when a group of surfers ousted them from Paradise Cove in Malibu. One paparazzo said his camera was tossed in the ocean and on the video you can hear someone make a slight death threat: "you're going to drown." It all started when Matthew McConaughey said he wished they would go away. The other surfers took it upon themselves to do so.

The confusing part is that this happened not once, but twice over the weekend as the paps came back for a rematch on Sunday.
