I've often thought that the defense against paparazzo might be to hire your own photographer to follow you around and, when other photogs show up, constantly take the same pictures, which you'd offer on a website for free. You'd make any papparazzi's pictures essentially valueless, and they'd find more lucrative targets.

You may hate Kanye, but I think any celebrity stalked by these idiot paparazzi should have full legal protection to do whatever they want to them. And anyone that reads the publications that fund these idiots, along with the people at the pubs, should be subject to one nut/bag punch daily.

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.

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.

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?

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.

One day one of these guys is going to snap and take out a crowd of papparazzo with a gun.

And I would have no problem with that.  If someone can shoot one person who is stalking, verbally assaulting, and physically harassing them in self defence, why aren't they allowed to shoot a whole crowd of them?

I don't mind Kanye.  I don't think he's particularly douchey, I think he doesn't give a fark, and has grabbed hold of the wrong end of the PR stick a couple of times.   Did not know about the car accident thing.  People don't like it when people don't smile.

Although what the hell he is doing with Kim Kardashian I will never know.  He's an actual intelligent person from a family that valued education. He set up a charity to give music education and fight illiteracy in underprivileged ids.  She must bore him to death with her 24/7 lowbrow classless fame whoring.


Civil_War2_Time: "Hey dad, why are you famous?"
"I told some cracker biatch to give me the mic on TV, and had sex with Ray-J's leftovers. That's why you're here today. You sure do look like Reggie today."


No, he's famous for being a really good rapper and producer (he produced Jay-Z and Janet Jackson).  He had released four or five critically-acclaimed high-selling albums before that incident.


varmitydog:

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.

Yes, it's a shame that even though she was a respected Professor of English she felt all that really mattered about her value as a person was her looks, and that it was worth risking her life to fix it.

I wonder where she could have got that idea.

The One True TheDavid: 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).


Yet you aren't sitting in the park, you're reading a Kanye West thread on Fark while trying to figure out the psychological reasons people care about what he does.

Can't believe I am white knighting for Kanye West... sigh... but

This is not a "crime" we should be bothering with. We should not be spending state dollars on it, not even for a civil court room to hear a civil case, let alone a prosecution. The video showed it was nothing at all.

Kanye, throw him 20 bucks to get a bandage for his butthurt and then move on.

Move along, nothing to see here you lookiloos...

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.

Okay so maybe this guy took a photo or report a story that kanye didn't like and now Kanye thinks this guy shouldn't be allowed to make money doing his job.  It is apparent Kanye isn't concerned with all the other paparazzi around him so attacking this guy for doing his job is wrong.

if there ever was a time to get a free legal shot at Kanye that was the time, one of the bigger paparazzi should have went up, picked up little K and slammed him to the ground and held him there.  

I'm waiting for the time when one of these stars mistakes a common fan with a nice camera for a paparazzi and attacks them.

I won't white knight paparazzi' but too much is made about them being bad when a lot of the times these stars pr person has let it be known when and where the star will be, for those times i feel they are free to shoot whatever they desire.

there should be an unwritten rule that kids and vacations are off limits and the publishers should also refuse to print those photos.

take your kid to a red carpet event = fair game
take your kid to the playground = off limits
pr person lets it leak you are taking your kid to the playground = fair game
