It is no news that Kanye West hates paparazzi … but what is news is the extent of that hatred, as was exposed during his deposition in the paparazzi assault lawsuit against him.
According to the transcript obtained by TMZ, Kanye was asked by the photog’s lawyer Nate Goldberg to explain what he meant by the verse in his anti-paparazzi song Flashing Lights that said, ‘I hate these n***as more than a Nazi.’
‘Cause that’s what I wanted to say in that song,’ replied West.
But when Goldberg said, ‘Well, you understood that the Nazis killed … six million Jews,’ it rattled West’s lawyer Shawn Holley, who exclaimed ‘Oh my gosh!’ at the point where the ellipsis is in the quote above.
Seeing where the question was heading to and its catastrophic consequences, Holley smartly prevented West from answering the Nazi question (even though he stubbornly wanted to answer it.)
Also in the deposition, West said that he was worried that paparazzi drones will fall and electrocute his daughter North while she swims in the pool.
‘Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she’s trying to learn how to swim at age 1?’ he asked the lawyer. ‘Wouldn’t you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her? Would it electrocute her?’
