Kim Kardashian

I'm Glad Kanye

Went After that Photog

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian is turning into a real bad ass ... she's telling friends she thinks Kanye West was spot on when he lunged and swore at a paparazzo in Bev Hills.

Kim -- who is always impervious to the gaggle of photogs who chronicle her every move -- thinks Kanye was justified when he bolted out of a restaurant and went all Incredible Hulk on an unsuspecting camera guy.

As you know ... Kanye had a close encounter with a metal sign as he walked to 9021PHO, slamming his forehead UFC style with a souvenir that will probably last for a week. 



Kim is telling friends ... the paparazzi have become increasingly aggressive with both of them since she became pregnant.  She's especially upset because on Monday a photog chased her down while she was driving and she had to swerve into another lane to avoid him and almost got into a bad accident.

Bottom line ... Kim is encouraging Kanye to take care of business when a photog crosses the line.  The problem with her theory -- in the case of the sign, the photogs held their distance and Kanye just didn't look where he was going.

The truth hurts.

They are public figures. If you don't watch where you walk and bump your head, they are obliged to take your picture. Kanye overreacted, but what else is new?

Neither Kim nor Kanye are sophisticated, but they're rich and famous so I guess that gives a fool like Kanye license to assault people.

Prediction: Eventually Kanye Wests attitude will land him in some hot water.

Maybe all the photogs need to STOP following their dumb a**'s anyway... maybe without the cameras everyone will see what a dipsh*ts they really are and that they don't need to be made front cover news! They want them there when it makes them money. Too bad... you chose that life, deal with it.

Kanye is so ugly. I don't think he knows how to breathe through his nose. He's always got his mouth hanging wide open.

First: Kanye rushed the pap...but THAT pap didn't even flinch. That's when Kanye backed off like the bitch he is.

Next: Kanye was idiot enough to walk into a sign...planted in the ground...was there first. It takes a moron to walk into a sign, or a building, or off a cliff, or fall into a hole. Natural Selection is a bitch.

Third: Kanye should be used to humiliating himself...stealing microphones for girls, voice corrector-inhancer fails onstage making him sound like a joke, bashing cameras in airports.

Fourth: Kanye is this day's Tiny Tim. (Google it). He's a quiet social-joke who gathers attention because he walks into signs that are planted into the ground. He is not known for his talent when he pushes his horrible voice through a voice corrector-inhancer to music he DID NOT write, perform on any instrument, and singing music he stole.

Last: I could imagine a 14-year old girl reacting to the pain of that little boo-boo on his head. But, not a man. Sorry if that sounds chauvinistic. It's not. I am a man...and all that implies. Men all over the world pity Kanye because he takes a bump like a little girl.

I think it's funny that Kim would be upset over paparazzzi following her...I actually shake my head in disbelief because that's what she's famous for; being photographed doing nothing. Every move she makes is designed to attract the photogs so tell me 'why is she mad'?

How long are you going to beat this dead horse? Is your staff unable to report news? There are quite a few articulate posters who can take over for your inept staff members.

Note to Kim: You "had to swerve into another lane, and almost had a bad accident:?? Yes, that would have been bad, but you would have been totally culpable. Just drive along in your car, and let them take your picture!! It's what you do!! DO NOT endanger public safety by pretending you're Princess Diana and "fleeing" from the paps. After all, you've spent the last several years cultivating this, and in essence training the paps to do exactly what they are doing. Each and every one of us will reap what we sow... so resume your previous MO of ignoring the paps (or use the Paris Hilton trick and pretend to be on the phone)... and stay in your lane. Reckless driving will endanger you, your unborn child, and the lives and children of others on the road, who don't benefit from your paparazzai mess. You, however, do benefit from it in a big way... so relax, drive like a grown up, or get a driver. No one would blame you for getting a driver -- especially at this point in your pregnancy.

Just have to say, he sure does the pissed off chipmunk routine well. What does he expect? She and mommy call the paps so they show up. Have no doubt that mommy and sisters are trying to split them up. He won't go the fame whore route and that makes mommy mad. Must say, I did laugh when he ran into the sign. Look where you are going fool. I wish we had laws against two idiots procreating.......
