the sad part is that the charges are going to be dropped or they’ll just send him to anger management. it’s sad the people who need to go to jail are the ones who evade it

# 2

I hope he goes to jail. Being someones ***** will bring him down a few.

# 4

Lol I don’t see what the problem is. Paparazzi are the most annoying little turds on the planet. They are overly aggressive & obsessive for no reason. And then they get mad when a celeb finally has it? You have to be kidding me.

# 5

I honestly do not like Kanye at all. But the pap was obviously provoking him. And afterwards I noticed the pap was smiling until he realized he was being filmed. So I don’t know. Saw the video on x17online. So either Kanye is dumb to fall for it or it’s all just fake..

The photogs are gross, and why are they allowed to be in an airport is crazy. but since they can you can’t take away their camera. This is the same crazy crap Larmar did. And I don’t think anything happened to him. The arrest Chris Brown for breathing. There are celebs that get way more crazy around them and you never see them react this way. He is not hounded that much. And you can’t tell people not to talk to you.

Just don’t answer and keep walking.

Bottom line: the photographer did nothing illegal. Kanye (Wild) West did.

Having an over-inflated sense of self worth doesn’t give you the right to take someone’s property or assault them.

Somehow, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have managed not to get into conflicts and they have ten times the celebrity that West wishes he had.

He and Chris can be jail buds.

Paps are annoying as hell.. we all know this but the difference is what Kanye is doing is illegal. What the photographer is doing is not. Celebs really think they can get away with anything they want because they have the money to buy their way out of trouble. Great example he’s setting for his child.

There is no law saying that people cannot photograph you and sell your picture! There is no law saying that a person cannot follow you either (according to Travon Martin case). So, the paps did nothing wrong. Kanye West is just another crazy n i g g a! Let’s be real. And that stupid bi t c h Kim Kardashian thought Kanye was going to be submissive and she could take all the $100 he ownes lol? Ha. She messed with the wrong Black guy. This man is crazy! And ugly! Untalented waste!

@amika: What?! If this pap was in the face of someone you didn’t dislike you’d be bitching to high heaven that the photog should be arrested and buried UNDER the jail! Hypo-freak-ing-crites! I don’t like Kanye but I’m glad he kicked the paps ass and I’m also not a hypocrite who would say it’s a-ok for some just because I liked them and not a-ok if I didn’t! Wrong is wrong!

@Eye Roll: BULLSHIT and you know it! If this was some celeb on your love list, you’d be chirping a different tune altogether. Hypocrite!

@SouthEast: What’s “real” is that you’re just one more big badass “online” racist who got no problem “nigga this, nigga that” in cyberspace. Just a coward.

I don’t care for him at all and really, what does he expect tying up with Kim. But in fairness, it was a tussle not a fight. That the pap wanted medical attention is ridiculous and revolting. Paps really need to start being restricted. Laws should be passed for the protection of everyone.

I believe these people should only be allowed to take pictures from a distance, not swarming around them like a pack of hyenas. And they should not be talking and yelling out to these celebrities- THAT is what Kanye hates. He is always telling them “Don’t talk to me!”

If you don’t like being beat up, don’t become a paparazzi.

@AHB: If you don’t like having your picture taken, don’t become a celebrity.

@liz: Why is it okay for Kanye to say, “Don’t talk to me.” to a photographer but the photographer can’t speak to Kanye?

He does not get special rules because he is a rich celebrity. The photographers have just as much right to speak as he does.

What he does NOT have is the right to assault someone.

@Eye Roll: He’s a musician first and celebrity second. The paps are *******, and ******* get slapped.

“paparazzi are annoying” what the hell are you doing HERE??? really??? HERE? Just Jared site? a gossip site? lol your little **** and dumb

@AHB: nope he is a celb his music is not music it is trash!!! aaaaand he is dating Kim K soooo he is a celeb first stupid person!!

@AHB: Musician? He better stick to the Miley Cyrus brand of celebrity:

If it don’t work, twerk.

@liz: BUT kAYNE IS TALKING TO THEM LOL

he is trash! hope someone punch him!!! his face is ugly!!

He needs to deal with it now that he’s attached to the Kardashians who live their lives for the paparazzis… Without the paps, the Kardashians wouldn’t have a good lifestyle to live by. That’s why Reggie Bush left Kim. He couldn’t take the craziness of the paps following him everywhere. So Kanye needs to live with these people following him everywhere. He just needs to ignore them when they provoke him… It makes him weak and stupid when he lash out. Just ignore them.

@Eye Roll @Fun: Once you hit puberty, you’ll get his music. In the meantime, chill to the Teletubbies.
