Kanye West

The Opposite of Violent

With Camera-Wielding Fan

2/26/2014 6:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Kanye West is best when Kanye is East ... because not only did he resist attacking an in-his-face, camera-wielding fan ... he summoned the guy back for the photo op he so aggressively wanted.

Here's what happened ... Kanye was in NYC, leaving a building for his van, when a random guy yanked out his cell phone and went for a cheek-to-cheek selfie.

Kanye is calm, but his hired muscle swats the fan's arm and thwarts the pic.

A few minutes later ... the fan is summoned back to the van but there are strings attached.  Kanye promises to take a pic with the guy if the paparazzi turn their cameras off ... and they oblige.

The fan gets his pic, no one gets hurt and it's a happy day in the Big Apple.

Why is TMZ not allowed to post any photos/stories on the K. women & why not? Who wants to look at Kanye West?? On their last show, the look of horror on KIM'S face, when Khloe tells her to have MORE BABIES , is priceless!

Anyone else think the whole Kanye-beat-up-a-racist thing was his Morton Downey Jr. moment?

Bad publicity or positive publicity. It all works the same, we're commenting and his making mula. End of story. Oh, and TMZ:) can we work together? Lol.

I'm s ure this was staged to TRY and save his reputation. Interesting he said he'd take the pic without paps around but here we are with a pic of him taking a pic with someone instead of beating them LOL

Awwww. I was liking the Kanye break :( I'm sure this was all staged since his image has been tanking more since he hooked up with the Kardashian cows.

This was amazing, I love Kanye despite what anyone says about him. Even though there is so much publicity about celebrities, bottom line we truly don't know them as a person. Lucky fan and really cool of the paps.

Kayne is trying to turn anew leaf but still needs to be behind bars for past attacks. I know when Kayne gets bad media he breaks out his son to the media. Kayne is using his son as a media sheild when he does bad.

On their show( the fake "surprise" engagement one) he was trying to talk to Kim about how he changed the setting of her ring .She completely ignored him & he looked perturbed. she just chatted away with her friend.
Sign of things to come KW.
