Remember this poetic moment?
While Kanye West had every right to get angry at the paparazzi (although violence isn’t necessarily the right answer), the rapper had a change of heart and decided to talk to photographers while filling his gas tank. In the video, West explains why he attacked a photographer in LAX back in July.
“It’s not about being a superstar, it’s about being a human being… If you had a daughter, and you guys say crazy s**t to me all the time, I couldn’t imagine my daughter being 4 years old and you guys screaming at us,” he said.
“The guy set me up at the airport the other day, laughing and s**t. That was the day I found out that my grandfather was not gonna make it. But when I’m coming out the airport, they tried to antagonise me and I tried to stop his camera.”
While Kanye didn’t behave in the most civil way before, I can totally see where he’s coming from. However, I was more peeved at the TMZ reporter who said he doesn’t think it’ll be long before the rapper “flips out” again.
Yes…how DARE SOMEBODY GET MAD AT THE PAPARAZZI?! Geez.
