The Beverly Hills Police Department has some questions for Kanye West.
The rapper allegedly walked into a chiropractor's office on Monday and punched a young man who had been haranguing him and his fiancee, Kim Kardashian, with a torrent of racial slurs. That afternoon, police confirmed they are conducting an investigation into the incident.
"On Monday, January 13th at approximately 12:15 PM, the Beverly Hills Police Department responded to the 8800 block of Wilshire Blvd. regarding a Misdemeanor Battery that just occurred at the location. The named suspect was identified as Kanye West by the victim and several witnesses," the Beverly Hills Police said in a statement. "Mr. West had left the location prior to Officers arrival. As of this writing, BHPD Detectives are conducting a follow-up investigation. No further information at this time."
Apparently, the young man tried to help Kardashian into the medical building in Beverly Hills and started shouting at the paparazzi, “F– these f—t-ass n–.” When Kardashian asked him not to use the N-word, he allegedly cursed her off as well, calling her a "n– lover." After Kim called Kanye for help, the young man cursed him out as well.
I find myself very much Team Kimye on this one. Of course I would never condone violence. But if I were in a condoning mood, someone who calls a woman a n— lover seems like a pretty good candidate for it.
