Kanye West Sentenced To Community Service For Assault
He’s done it again. Kanye got angry.
Kanye West has just been sentenced to 2 years probation, 250 hours of community service and 24 anger management sessions after assaulting a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last July. I feel it is worth pointing out that his last anger management sessions following an incident in the same airport clearly made no difference. Yes, in 2008 Kanye lashed out at some other paps, breaking their cameras; he got away with paying for new equipment (like he noticed a change in his bank balance) and anger counselling which we have already established got him nowhere. Wowzers, he sure did feel the wrath of the law.
This time he pleaded ‘no contest’, (same sentencing applies as if ‘guilty’) which was a safe bet seeing as he was caught on camera, one of the few cameras in that airport that he hadn’t broken. On July 19th he went for Daniel Ramos after the following exchange:
Ramos: “Kanye! Kanye! Talk to me, Kanye! Now come on, Kanye, I don’t want to fight with you.”
West: “I told you, don’t talk to me, right. You’re trying to get me in trouble so I step off and have to pay you like $250,000.”
Here Kanye is referring to another person who he allegedly punched in Beverly Hills and then paid $250,000 to stop them pursuing the case. Regardless of whether this is true or not, Kanye seemingly has a worse memory than a fish (which actually have 3 month memories don’t you know? fun fact right there) as he has pointed out clearly that getting assaulted by him costs him a quarter of a million dollars before immediately rushing at Ramos and attempting to wrestle the camera out of his hands.
He ran away 15 seconds into the fight, but Ramos claims he is still suffering with injuries from the attack. Kanye can be brutal, I mean check out how willing he is to take a selfie with a fan…
Ah I’ve got to give him some credit, after this he apparently called the fan back to have a better picture with him. Odd really, seeing as that was all Ramos wanted… this fan obviously caught him at a good time; practising double standards Kanye, Yeezus!
In all honesty, the most interesting element of this story for me is wondering what community service he will end up doing. It would just be awesome to be a resident where you may come across Kanye West casually litter picking, great photo opportunity I’d say!
