A Better Look at the Brad Garrett B*tch-Slap

8/13/2007 6:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He launched his violent attack just out of the range of our camera, but it turns out someone else was rolling when Brad Garrett unleashed a light-shattering uppercut on a TMZ camera in Malibu last night.


In the footage shot by a photog further away from the action, you can clearly see the 6'8" "Everybody Loves Raymond" star reach down and sucker-slap the camera in front of a crowd of paparazzi, knocking the equipment back into the photog's face. Keep your eye on the light attached to the top of the camera -- Brad knocks it clear out of the frame.

A rep for Garrett had no comment.

number 10....

watch the brit video on this site when she was going to mcDonalds.

Do you think anyone deserves that?

Pap's only do this because TMZ and sites like it over-hype celebs - causing them to go into a photo frenzy....

and Pap's also provoke celebs to get that "action" shot, you just don't see those pictures or lead up.....

It doesn't appear that you understand, we really don't care what happens to the paps. Hit'em, smack'em, knock'em down. Just couldn't care less.

At least the other guys had the courtesy to give the guy a little space. Jesus Christ, you guys are in an empty area of the parking lot and your guy is filming him from within arm's reach, while some other guy calls him a racist. What do you think is going to happen?

Check that photog for a green card and check under his turban for a brain.

Hollywood's a Hazard    

The RATsies push people to the brink. There is absolutley NO justification for that kind of hounding of celebs. Still Brad showed the world he is NOT the Great One.

Murder the Paparazzi    

So what? Celebs should be able to shove guns in the faces of paparazzi and then pull the trigger. Zero sympathy. Absolutely zero.

The man was being harrassed while trying to get in his car with his girlfriend. Back off the cameras and cut the questions designed specifically to get a reaction. Be fair!

The pap goes WAY beyond...taking pictures of celebs is fine, but alot of this is complete stalking and a violation of privacy. We all obviously want to see what is going on with the celebs but it is just downright sad sometimes seeing how harassed some celebs get. All the comments celebs make are comments that everyday people say everyday...it is just blown out of proportion because celebs are looked at like they are perfect, they are normal people who have alot of money
