Valeriyance: That was really pathetic assault.  Camera douche had to go to the hospital for that?  Reminds me of the time this old lady slowly fell (read: laid down) in the nasty water of an overflowing toilet to try and sue this restaurant I was at.  Everyone just handed the manager their cards and told them to call if the biatch really proceeded to sue.  I've been in more life threatening situations on the playground.


well to be fair when a girl fights you there is a chance of her scratching your eyes.

tzzhc4: I hate the paparazzi and the trash they spew but I dislike Kanye and his attention whore wife even more


The fact you automatically assume they're married because they have a kid and call her a whore shows how hilariously regressive you are.
And why exactly do you consider Kim Kardashian a whore. For what? Someone releases a sex tape of her and she is able to shrug it off, take advantage of the attention and make even more money? How dare she! She's a woman !  Why doesn't she know her place?

How does a paparazzi photog wake up every day and not put a gun into his mouth and pull the trigger after realizing  what his life has become?

OMG, this is huge!

*clicks link*

Oh. farking paparazzi. The incident was probably staged anyway - the pic in TFA is too good, too clear, too perfectly lit - a second photographer was all set up and just waiting for the right moment.

I have to take heed of the words of another man, our President who made what I believe to be an accurate assement of Kanye West:  "The guy's a Jackass!".

Just another 'celebrity', rich and famous.  He may make a lot of music happen for other people but he himself won't be missed.

AdolfOliverPanties: I love how the paparazzo lets the tiny Kanye "beat him up," knowing full well he could kick that midget's ass if he wanted to.

And Kanye is so farking full of himself that he thinks he's a bad ass who could whip anybody. Stupid ass will fall for every time.

I hope he gets jail time and them sued for tens of millions.


Same way 5'6 110 lb Justin Bieber can "beat up" a paparazzi. The payout is worth the beating.

"Attention whore" was the term he used not "whore." They are different. Learn it, live it, and prosper by it.

I love to hate on Kanye, but the video makes it look not so bad on his part.  He wasn't punching or kicking, just trying to wrestle away the camera.

I am conflicted since I dislike both the paparazzi and Kanye, but i will side with Kanye on this one.

johnny queso: spidermilk: My least favorite part of the video is when all the other paparazzi do nothing to help, but then when the guy who had his camera stolen gets free from Kanye they are like 'WHOA ARE YOU OKAY??? ARE YOU OKAY?'

And that is why I hate LA.

Everyone in l.a. isn't a either paparazzo or a celebrity. There are plumbers, bartenders, lawyers and desk jockeys just like where you live.

and by what right does he have to try and wrestle the camera away from this person?  The cops can't even demand the photog to erase the photos or even see the photos without a warrant.

Goodness gracious, what a terrible thing to wish upon your child. This is a woman who was so butt ugly she killed herself getting cosmetic surgery. Talk about falling out of the ugly tree, this woman hit every branch on the way down and then the tree fell on her. Unless you're one of those "adversity builds character" types, shame on you for such a terrible wish.

Gene Masseth Jr.: I don't really see what he did wrong here.  He told the guy something about "I asked you to leave me alone" and he was speaking specifically to that guy and none of the other paparazzi around him, so obviously this guy did or said something in the past and is still bothering Kanye about it.  Obviously he shouldn't attack the guy but if there is some sort of beef there, he acted on it by trying to take the guys camera and shut him up to prove a point.  I'm not advocating what Kanye did but I don't really find anything wrong with it either.

However, Kanye is one of the biggest celebrities on the planet, and he walks out of LAX and into a throng of paparazzi with no security or bodyguards around him?  Where were they and why didn't they take care of this guy?  It would have all been prevented had they been with him.




I've got a beef with you. Give me your computer. I see nothing wrong with this.

Yeah he should be charged, but felony assault is obviously too harsh for what he did.  I mean, 18 years!? Charge him while using a sense of proportion, that's all.

Tom_Slick: miss diminutive:

Kanye West and the paparazzi? I can't think of the last time I wanted both sides of an issue to lose so badly.

Needs to be repeated.



On the one hand any given celebrity should realize that part of being a celebrity is being followed all over by assholes with cameras, and that the courts have decided that it's okay to take pictures of anyone in public; OTOH any given paparazzo should accept that a celebrity, like any human being, might get pissed off by being followed all over by assholes with cameras. Given that, I see no real reason for criminal charges here: paparazzi have a recognized legal right to take their photos, but they should insure their cameras in case they're grabbed and smashed, which should be recognized as an occupational hazard equivalent to the celebrity's increased likelihood of being followed and photographed. Pressing charges when your camera gets grabbed should be like one hockey player charging another with assault & battery: if you don't want the perils don't take the job. And neither professional whose livelihood involves their reciprocal roles should go full crybaby over such shiat. As for me, I don't want to be either a celebrity or a paparazzo, for reasons which this story should make clear.

In this particular case I don't give a damn about Kayne West and barely know who he is, all I know is that he almost correctly diagnosed one of Dubya's failings (it should have been "about poor people of any race," he cared about Ms. Rice and that Mr. Powell just fine) and that he acted like an idiot at some awards show, so I don't understand the animus against him here. Are your lives so boring that you actually care about celebrities' antics one way or another? Has your reality testing died of neglect? In real life I'm a pathetic little dweeb without a friend in the world but I'd rather sit in the park with the dogs than cultivate an emotion-laden opinion about someone whose job is being a show-off. Grow some funk of your own (to quote Bernie Taupin).

ordinarysteve: The worst part is that this seems to be every paparazzi's dream, they constantly try to goad the people they are stalking....err, photographing. The prospect of Kanye going to jail is hilarious though. He will throw such a shiat-fit when he finds out the thread count of his jumpsuit.


I've heard it refered to as a "Golden ticket", and I think more then a few pap's try to taunt celebs because it will most likely end in a payout.

Im not a Taylor Swift fan by any stretch of the imagination but Kanye's reputation of an arrogant whiny SOB was firmly demonstrated when he interrupted her award for something claiming it should have gone to Beyonce.

I honestly confuse him with Chris Brown all the time.

Feel so bad for the kid.....maybe she will look at her parents and realize they are nuts and do something with her life outside the celebrity machine.

spidermilk: I try so hard to hate Kanye West and I just can't. I have even convinced myself the whole dumb cocky asshole thing is just his 'character'. Maybe this will help set me straight.


...

OK, TMZ calls that a vicious attack? Kanye is obviously completely crazy and a terrible person, but vicious attack? It was more like playing tug of war with a gentle dog who just won't let go of the stick.


Keep in mind that Kanye is physically incapable of smiling like a normal person.  A car accident in 2002 rendered the muscles in and around his jaw non functional.  He's gotten better at it in recent years, but I can't help but think that the "George Bush doesn't care about black people" comment might have played better if he could have had a facial expression.  Any... facial expression.  At all.

The lack of smiling also makes him seem like a complete cockbag.  I think the first pictures I saw of him with anything but a mean-mug on was him with Kim Kardashian.
