A billionaire violently takes a reporter’s phone. Do you not understand?
Kanye West merely wished to lend his pal his support.
The 29th of January found West making her way to Charlie Wilson’s ceremony at the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California. A TMZ reporter who went by the name “Melanie” (no spelling given) approached him on the sidewalk as he walked to the event and asked whether he was controlling his wife Bianca Censori or if she had free choice. Upon completing her query, West promptly took the phone and placed it in his pocket.
I don’t understand why you think it’s OK. “Melanie,” West inquired. I’m just a regular person. You set up celebs, TMZ, all the way up here 30 miles away. This whole b—-. What y’all have to do is irrelevant to me. What you all think. Please don’t attack me with it. You really believe you can just stroll up on me like that? You have the right to treat me disrespectfully simply because you are a White woman. And then you’d ask me something completely ridiculous, like that? Inquire about my wife; specifically, whether or not I believe she possesses free will. Am I going crazy? Stupid, are you? Here we are in America.
Additionally, he expressed his displeasure that the reporter neglected to inquire about his custody battles with Kim Kardashian or his children, and that it was unfair that he was questioned about his wife.
While the cops drew near, West inquired about the reporter’s identity by asking for her name, last name, and residence. He proceeded to inquire as to her annual salary.
How much do you earn in a year? West inquired. I’ll give you twice as much as what they’re paying you. Would you rather work for someone else? I see you’re smiling now.
After retrieving the reporter’s phone, West handed it back to her.
“Obtain her contact information,” West told one additional cameraman.
