    Even though he shouldn’t have attacked that photographer and he needs to control his anger.. it kinda sucks that he has to be punished for being angry with paparazzi. Celebrities are essentially being stalked and tormented. I would just be mad that I would have to be put on probation for 2 years and do community service.

    @Maddy: Thats a joke. West loves the attention and like the Kardashians..he seeks that attention. Paps keep them in the news and relevant. When an actor/actress/musician lacks the talent to keep them hot, they find other means. So what is it that the Kardashians do exactly… that’s right… nothing.

    @Lisa: I wasn’t talking about the Kardashians. I was talking about it sucks to be punished for getting angry at a situation that would make anyone frustrated.

    @Maddy: he could have gone to college an became an accountant, no one forced him into the world of entertainment. would you rather live like the people in N. Korea instead of the freedoms we have here ?

  • Uhm

    Time Bomb. He lacks intelligence to benefit from a level 2 anger managment program. Pity. Pity. But true. Not enough brains always leads to probs, no matter how famous someone is.

    @PeckersPeck: Indeed.

  • Maddy

    @PeckersPeck: He could have but he didn’t. So he deserves to be stalked and have strangers show up at his house 4 in the morning? And you’re exactly right. We have freedom here in the United States. Freedom to be creative and choose to be an entertainer over an accountant. And shame on you for bringing up the freedom of different countries. That’s completely out of the point. Your argument completely collapsed on itself. He could have gotten a college degree in accounting but he didn’t because we are free to do so. And so because we are more free than other countries we should be subjected to the dangers of media interest? I don’t think so.
