But it seems like he had a good reason to lose his temper this time. According to reports, the Yeezus rapper was already at a meeting which Kim Kardashian showed up to, being trailed by a ton of paparazzi per usual.
A bystander, who was a Caucasian man, reportedly held the door for her and then called the photographers racial obscenities and anti-gay slurs, TMZ reports.
When the E! reality star told him it was inappropriate to use a particular word, he then began screaming racial insults about Kim and Kanye.
Kim was "seriously afraid for her life", according to People, and Kanye rushed to her aid. The man confronted Kanye and yelled obscenities before the rapper allegedly hit him.
Beverly Hills police are currently investigating after the man called 911 following the incident.
It's not the first time Kanye's been in a scuffle. He had an altercation with a pap at LAX airport in July of 2013 and was charged with battery.
Do you think Kanye was justified, or is he out of control?
