Ok so I’m sure most of you have read already about Kanye West getting arrested on suspicion of assault late last night in Newcastle, UK. Well he was later released without charges and the story emerged that the photographer accusing Kanye of assault tried the same thing with a famous footballer last month. The picture associated with this particular incident on TMZ shows the photographer with a very small scrape. I’m sure it wasn’t pleasant, but hardly worthy of the original charge.
Witnesses to the altercation insist that Kanye asked the photographer several times to comply with his wishes to not be pictured. I guess at 4am not everyone wants to be caught on camera buying from a hotdog vendor.
While I would never condone violence one has to ask, does there come a time when celebrities have the right to protect their privacy by any means necessary? Or do they forgo that right as a public figure?
