Kanye West Sued

Kanye West left an innocent photog in crutches after a brutal assault at LAX last month -- when Kanye attempted to wrestle away the pap's camera -- so says the photog himself, and now he's filed a lawsuit against the rapper.

Daniel Ramos appeared with his lawyer Gloria Allred at a news conference Wednesday, where Gloria announced the lawsuit for assault, battery, and interference with Daniel's civil rights (in this case free speech).

Daniel -- who called himself a "filmmaker" -- says he spent two weeks on crutches after the attack, and has been walking with a cane for some time. He says he's still in pain.

Gloria argued the attack sets a dangerous precedent for celebrity-on-photog violence, especially now that various celebs are actually celebrating unprovoked attacks on photogs.

At one point, Gloria went after Kirstie Alley, Cher, and even Kylie Jenner for applauding Kanye's attack on Twitter.

Gloria says she's also asking the court to issue a restraining order against Kanye.

Ramos is suing for unspecified damages.

I find it funny that other stars/entertainers are congratulating Kanye for violence. And regardless of the victims profession, if they didn't exist their photos wouldn't appear anywhere...

Oh please... I saw the video and Kanye didn't beat him enough for this guy to be in crutches for 2 weeks. I am not condoning Kanye's actions but this guy is blowing everything out of proportion because all he wants is easy money. Poor paps being assaulted by celebrities, they get what they deserve, their job is simply pathetic and too invasive and most of the times these days they are just nasty and try to get celebrities to react negatively.

****roaches.
