The TMZ photog exclaimed how big of a fan he is of West, but the 36-year-old producer/rapper covered the camera with his hand and tried to control the situation -- and all paparazzi, apparently -- from there.
West's message went:
"Don't talk ... don't talk to me ... I don't wan't to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know ... and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows ... don't talk to themselves .. DON'T TALK EVER AGAIN."
This wasn't West's first dust-up the celebrity news company. TMZ says West also went after one of their cameras in 2008 at the very same airport, earning him an arrest and charges, which were later dropped.
