Joining scores of other celebrities with experiences of confronting aggressive paparazzi, Iggy Azalea was filmed over the weekend arguing with a photographer trying to take her picture at a grocery store in L.A. The footage begins with the photographer and Azalea’s friend screaming at one another before the rapper’s associate can be seen spitting on the paparazzo.
The photographer immediately claims he’s been assaulted and says, “Do you have AIDS? I have AIDS now. Maybe I got Ebola.”
The Australian artist herself is then seen entering the frame and responds, “Okay, I hope you have Ebola. I hope you die. You’re a fucking cunt.” Azalea proceeds to try and ram the photog with her grocery cart, before yelling, “You’re invading my life. You’re in the store while I’m trying to buy eggs. No, that’s not the way it works sweetheart. That’s what they want? You’re pitiful.”
The “Black Widow” rapper goes on to argue that the photographer shouldn’t be allowed in the store.
“Being a musician doesn’t give you the right to sneak into a supermarket and take photographs of somebody buying eggs,” she says. “That’s not a public space, that’s private. You’re inside a store taking pictures of people sweetheart. It’s not okay. It’s not cute.”
The two continue screaming at one another as Azalea walks away with the photographer, yelling, “Listen, you’re famous. You’re famous.”
Azalea quickly responded to the incident with an Instagram post in which she wrote, “Judge me for spazzing out if you like but you only saw the 30 sec aftermath which was classy in comparison to what he said to us inside the grocery store.”.
