Meanwhile, the reporter is seen congratulating West on his recent alleged marriage with Censori.
However, West who now goes by the name Ye appears to be irked by the actions of the journalist.
The Donda rapper pleads, ‘Just stop! Bro, just stop…’
In addition, the clip includes West confronting the paparazzi for invading his space for monetary gain.

A different user shared, ‘This sounds like a fair and reasonable deal. Just give him a percentage of what you make it’s only fair.’
Another fan chimed in to say, ‘That man has had it with the world. He’s fed up, and I understand.’
