American rapper, Kanye West, has engaged in a heated exchange with a paparazzi following questions about his wife, Bianca Censori and her perceived “lack of free will”.
Kanye was on his way to attend the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony honouring R&B singer, Charlie Wilson, when the incident occurred on Monday.
A female photographer working for TMZ approached the singer and asked: “People want to know if Bianca has her free will. Some people say you are controlling her”.
Kanye immediately became upset and snatched the phone from the paparazzi.
While describing the question as disrespectful, the rapper accused the paparazzi of feeling entitled because she is white.
He stressed that he deserves the same respect he is expected to give.
“You think because you are a white woman that you can walk up on me like that and ask me some dumb ass shit like that?
“You asked me if my wife has free will. A disrespectful question to ask a grown-ass superhero.”
The reporter attempted to apologise but West pressed on, questioning if it was her place to ask invasive questions about celebrities’ private lives.
This comes days after the rapper faced backlash on the internet for sharing revealing photos of Censori on his Instagram account.
DAILY POST reports that the couple married in a private ceremony in January 2023.
