Kanye West apparently hates the paparazzi more than he hates Nazis, and his lawyer had to stop him from explaining why in a deposition.
Asked by a lawyer about a line in one of his songs that goes, “I hate these n****s more than a Nazi,” Kanye stuck by his words, TMZ reports.
“So why did you say that you hate the paparazzi more than the Nazis?” the lawyer for a photographer Kanye allegedly punched and wrestled to the ground in 2013, asked in the deposition, according to TMZ. (RELATED: Kanye West Said Getting His Picture Taken Is Just Like Rape)
“‘Cause that’s what I wanted to say in that song,” Kanye replied.
As the lawyer then began to explain that the Nazis killed six million Jews, Kanye’s lawyer interrupted and stopped him from answering the question, but not from complaining to the lawyer for quoting the n-word from his song.
“But not legitimate to say n***a … ever … ever,” he said in the transcript. (RELATED: Kanye West: ‘I’m The Smartest Celebrity You’ve Ever F**king Dealt With’)
