Kanye West

Pummeled 18-Year-Old Like A Boxer

Kanye West was like a boxer going in for the kill ... pummeling an 18-year old guy with more than 30 blows ... this according to an eyewitness.

We broke the story ... an 18-year-old allegedly called Kim a "n****r lover" on his way into the office of a Beverly Hills chiropractor.  Minutes later, Kim and Kanye stormed in -- Kim ID the kid -- and her baby daddy went nuts.

The eyewitness tells TMZ ... the 18-year-old was sitting in a chair as Kanye made a beeline for him and, without saying a word, started slugging him in the face.  The kid was covering his face but Kanye was unrelenting.  Kim just stood there and silently watched the beating.

The receptionist was screaming, "Stop, stop," but Kanye ignored her.  The kid quickly curled up into a ball to block the blows. 

The massage therapist rushed into the waiting room and pushed Kanye off the kid and ordered him out of the office.  Kanye got out of the building and Kim went to another office for a meeting.

Throw the book at Kanye -- he's begging for it. He goes and pulverizes this kid who may have said offensive things as though he was perfectly entitled to do so. Here's the thing: there are laws against attacking and injuring people; not liking what the person said is NOT justification, no matter how offensive. For all Kanye knew, the kid may have a screw loose or be high on something, and not really know what he's saying. And in that case, he's already struggling with issues of his own ... and along comes a multi-millionaire maniac who adds to the kid's problems by terrorizing and torturing him ... as if the kid deserved that degree of retaliation; and as if he caused the mighty privileged Mr. West some type of severe irreparable harm ... West needs to be held to account. He is not above the law. Shame on him and shame on Kim. They are stupid imbeciles, both of them. Classless fools. They've lost any shred of respect or benefit of the doubt I may have ever been inclined to give them. And I certainly won't reward them by doing anything that remotely risks putting a red cent in either of their bank accounts.

South Park please make another episode making fun of Kanye. Like where if you have a problem you call 1-800 Kanye and within mins he is there kicking ass of the person your having problems with. Have Kanye get into a Hissy fit and ask, Are you calling me a gay fish as well?"

Hmmmmm.. Kid leaves office with a koolaid smile on his face and doesn't seem like he was the victim of being punched out by a pro-boxer. Kanye wishes. I'd love to have someone like The Rock beat the sh-- out of this loser.

Stepped up police presence, street hoodlum lurking around Beverly Hills in orchestrated attack at businesses, employee fears for safety, citizens on alert.

First of all he's no kid at 18. That ass hole is old enough to know you can get a well deserved ass beating when you make racist comments. Second, maybe Kanye didn't react appropriately but I'm sure half of you would do the same thing if suddenly someone came up to your spouse and started shouting rude things. Stop criticizing Kanye and Kim just because it's easy to do so behind a screen and put yourself in their shoes for once. You're not the one who has to deal with negative criticism from the money hungry media who loves to stalk and prey on celebrities just to sell a half made up story. You're not the one who has to deal with crazy random strangers waiting for the perfect chance to attack you on the street. Back off and let people be.

I don't condone this 18 yr old jackass allegedly making the racial and threatening slurs he was accused of making.. It was wrong in all ways..
However, Kim is a Big Girl and knew of Kanye's temper. Kanye was not present to witness anything, and arrived afterwards. In that time if Kim was feeling threatened, Call 911, but don't let a maniac run thru the place on a manhunt for revenge.
Kanye made a conscience decision and was out for blood. Kanye should be charged with attempted murder.
But for the fact Kanye had to be restrained and pulled off the young man, the 18 yr old teen, would have ended up dead.. Kanye should be tossed in jail for a long time.. Is that what we do in society when someone insults us or threatens us?
NO !!
We have to let the cops deal with it.. Look at it this way, with cops going crazy shooting unarmed people, maybe one would have shot Kanye, thinking he was a homicidal maniac out of control.. Which he usually is !

Kanye, you're music has had its ups and downs, highs and lows and you yourself, not a great spectacle of media coverage. All I can say is, you wanna beat on someone who is a ****ing kid, step up to the face of the rest of the country who already doesn't like your stupid ass and see if they'll show you any mercy...

This story was fabricated by Kim and Kanye. You have to be a pretty bad boxer to hit someone 30 times and have them walk away.
