*After he taunted the paparazzi during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night, Hollywood attorney Gloria Allred labeled rapper Kanye West as “shameful” and a “disgrace.”
“It’s not safe for you in the zoo,” West said during the show as a warning shot towards to the paparazzi.
Allred represents Danny Ramos, the videographer/pap who sued West for alleging assault, battery, negligence and violation of civil rights.
While speaking with RadarOnline.com, Allred said, “Mr. West made it clear that he thinks that he has the right to attack anyone that antagonizes him by asking him a question that he does not like. He thinks that paparazzi are fair game.”
She added, “In his televised appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show he sent a message that anyone that crosses him is not safe and that no one should forget that he is from Chicago. We have a message to you Mr. West in response. You will be held accountable for your actions both in the criminal justice system and in the civil justice system.
This response from Allred was directly following West’s visit to Kimmel. “Your remarks are shameful and add further insult to the injuries that you inflicted upon my client.”
She added: “You say that you bring ‘joy to the world’. I say you disgrace your profession and bring shame to your hometown of Chicago when you make reference to being from Chicago as some sort of threat.”
On July 19, West was seen on camera wresting Ramos to the ground at LAX.
Court proceedings were held this week. Although the request was denied, the Los Angeles City Attorney asked for the judge to order West to attend anger management classes.The arraignment was postponed until November 7.
