Travis Barker Video -- You Gotta See This

2/22/2010 10:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained crazy video of Travis Barker and his friends threatening paparazzi outside a Calabasas restaurant -- spitting at the photogs, hitting the camera and, allegedly, slashing a photog's tires.


In the video, Travis starts out by screaming, "Where's your homeboy?" As we first reported, Travis got into it with a photographer on his way into the restaurant -- but neither of the two photogs in the video are that guy.

The photogs claim one of their phones was stolen. When one of the photogs confronts Travis' friends about the phone, a guy can be heard saying, "F**king snitch fa**ot motherf**ker, no one has your gay ass phone."

After a few more minutes of arguing, and the arrival of cops, a photog noticed his tires were slashed.

The photogs told cops they did not want to press charges. No arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken.

UPDATE: You can read Travis' response to the incident on his Twitter page, saying in part, "Paparazzi cried like young girls when it was no longer three of them against me and my kids. Didn't they remember threatening me an hour ago? What happened to the tough guys with the cameras? It was gonna be a fair fight."

If he's so concerned about his kids, maybe he should lose the tatoos and ditch the ghetto English.

In the meantime, stop clogging the court system with these stupid cases because you're too stupid to figure out how to cook pancakes and sausages at home.

First Travis's ex wife Shanna was the one that wanted that reality show so she could get a acting career and if you watched he was busy touring making money for his family. Second like Travis said on his twitter keep the cameras on the people that want the attention its not like he was struttin his kids to a nightclub to get photographed they were eating there is a time and place....

Another Sean Penn in the making!This dude is also out of control. He can't get along with his ex, this is not the first time he has been violent in public and airs his dirty laundry on the internet. Your a class act! A little time in jail for this douche would do him well!

I'm done with this gossip crap. This video shows exactly what's wrong with America. If the priority is to make celebrities seem real then mission accomplished. At what cost though? We have our own issues to deal with and the celebrities, that are getting lots of money and praise, are harassed. Just because they're famous doesn't mean that they aren't flawed. If more people actually focused on helping in their communities, learned more about local politics, treated others with respect and spent time with your kids maybe things would turn around. Not only do I work 40 hours a week, I go to school full-time. I also want to contribute to society rather than bring it down. All of you should assess whether or not your time spent on this website or other related sources of media is worth your life. Good luck!

I would be furious to if someone was taking pictures of my kids! He is trying to have "family time" with his kids and you got paps in your face with their cameras. Show some respect photogs! There is a line and you crossed it.

This seems like much ado about nothing and could have been totally avoiding if Travis and his entourage took the high road and just walked away. In the video, there's just a bunch of people using foul language and acting foolish. Should Travis be allowed to get fustrated over being followed or "scoped out" by the paps to a level that is extreme, yes. But was his handling over the situation a bit overboard, I would say so. I am quite convinced this is not the first time Travis has been photographed by paps and even on occasion has spoken to them breifly. So a situation in which you could have just walked and gone about your busines now turned into a 45-minute fiasco that could possibly lead to legal trouble,...is it really worth it?

The line that was crossed was slashing tires and stealing personal property from within someone else's vehicle. Barker showed himself and his buddies to be common criminals. Maybe Barker should do a few less drugs and get some control over himself.

Here is a guy coming out of a restaurant with his kids and he has to face a crowd of paps taking his picture and then having to have an argument about it. The guy doing all the talking was so annoying I felt like smacking him myself. As for the gay part, well maybe he shouldnt' have said that but now people are going to be arrested for that according to poster Q? do we have any free speech left, will that now be taken out of the dictionary? call ACT UP or whatever, is that the gay mafia or something? the paparazzi have no business annoying people coming out of a diner with kids in their arms, that's what should be illegal. These people can't take their damn garbage out without a pap snapping a picture,I'd be fed up with that too. Now Sean Penn just kicked one in the kneww and broke his camera and according to the papers he could go to jail, where the hell are we living? can anyone just follow you and take your picture now? they can't even go gto a store. This is not part of the territory either, Lana Turner , Cary Grant none of them had to go through this, where did this freakish job come from, the news rags that publish it and pay big money for these pictures, thats why TMZ is sticking up for them. Enough is enough. I have nothing against gays until now, now youre threatened if you call one of them a gay person? they are aren't they? why, they are straight? If they can't take a few names then take off the dress and fight like a man or get back into the closet. Don't threaten people with lawsuits,or gay groups, this is why they are losing supporters, if he was a fat photographer and he was called a tub of lard no one would have said a word, thats OK, that hurts less huh? wake up and smell the cafe latte, if you're gay you're not straight, if you are going to shove a camera in a mans face with an armful of kids then expect to be called something. You didn't seem to mind making fun of his tattoos though or maybe the older guy who is reading these posts with tattoos on his neck or arm. You pick the thing you think will hurt him most Q, when people start going to prison for a word its passport time, there must still be one free country out there.

196..An observation to your comment about Travis's children, if you remember his reality show..we saw his children on camera on more than one occasion. It didn't appear that Travis was concerned about keeping his children out of the public eye.

TRAVIS BARKER IS THE MAN!!!! Maybe those losers will have to take a day off from tormenting successful people to fix his tires. Their only defense is their running camera footage that causes nausia. GET A LIFE PAPARAZZI!!!!

He wanted "jungle love" and had to babysit so he took both out to eat, not "family time" but kill two birds with one stone time. She is a club rat seen around a lot and gives it up and obviously this time to the big or should I say little, "T".

So it's okay for Travis and his "boys" to say homophobic crap??? They said several things a few times but when Ronnie from Jersey Shore said one sentence, he got hell for it.
That pisses me off because Travis is more popular than Ronnie, he's been around alot longer but I'm sure nothing will come of it.
They were totally out of line acting like big bad tough guys to the paps. Some people need heir asses kicked!
