Rapper Kanye West has hit out at the paparazzi again on Friday morning after clashing with photographers camped outside of his home in Los Angeles.
Kanye was arriving home at around 4AM PST when he was confronted by photographers eager to question him about his feud with Jimmy Kimmel. If you don’t recall, Jimmy poked fun at Kanye on TV earlier this week by spoofing an hour-long interview he recently gave to BBC radio by using children.
Kanye, who had went on a Twitter rant about the comedy sketch on Thursday, was not in the mood to talk to the paparazzi and in video footage obtained by TMZ, he is seen blasting one shutter bug as “a blood sucking mosquito” and “bully”, before lunging towards the camera.
However, West stopped himself before the argument became physical and is now reportedly seeking to press charges over the incident. The rapper is no stranger to run-ins with the paparazzi – as he is currently facing charges of battery and attempted grand theft relating to an altercation in July, when he allegedly tried to grab the camera out of a photographer’s hand and wrestled him to the ground at LAX.
The rapper has fired back at the claims in court, insisting he reacted after fearing “his safety was in immediate danger”. If convicted, Kanye faces a maximum of one year behind bars. We highly doubt that Kanye will get convicted… What do you think?
