For Once Kanye's Anger Was Totally Justified
I like that Kanye West fellow. He may be the most fatheaded, arrogant jerk of all time in most of his interviews, but every once in a while he puts out a great album and makes us forget all the stupid things he said to Jimmy Kimmel or Zane Lowe.
Look into his eyes. That is not a man I would mess with.
He also has a habit of getting into fights -- verbal or physical -- for any reason presented to him. You may recall he just got out of a court case late last year for an alleged assault on a paparazzo who was trying to photograph him. He's back in the news for another alleged assault that occurred Monday, but this time it comes with a twist: For perhaps the first time, I believe, Kanye West was completely justified in his actions.
As detailed by TMZ, it all started at a chiropractor's office where West and his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, were stopping by for an appointment. What happened next was altogether bizarre. A young man apparently stepped up to yell at the paparazzi who were there to hound the couple, but then, when he started yelling some seriously racist, homophobic things at the photographers, Kim told him enough was enough.
He then allegedly turned on her, yelling racist epithets at her and Kanye. At that point, Kim supposedly went and got Kanye, and Yeezy came out swinging at the kid. It wouldn't be the first time Ye had resorted to violence under pressure, and it probably won't be the last.
Except this time, wow, was he ever justified if it's true what this kid was yelling at him. Normally I wouldn't advocate for violence, and all these allegations are still up in the air and for a court to decide. That being said, if the kid was saying what he's alleged to have been saying, then this may be the first time I can really say I'm on Kanye's side.
Language like that isn't appropriate in any context, but especially not hurled around like this. It may not be appropriate to come out and start throwing punches, but if there's anything that would incite me personally to violence, it would be this. I can totally see where Kanye was coming from.
