Kanye West victim ID’d as autograph hound ‘just trying to live life’

The autograph seeker Kanye West slugged in a rage this week is a veteran hunter of celebrity signatures, according to a report.

Justin Poplawski, 40, has been getting the signings of high profile stars for 25 years, The US Sun reported.

“Right now I’m just trying to live life and get back home,” Poplawski, who is believed to live in Illinois, told the outlet, adding, “I still have other things to take care of” before he declined further comment.

Video of the attack shows West, 44, screaming in anger as he punches a man lying on the ground. The LAPD has named West a suspect in the attack, which took place at 3 a.m. Thursday near Soho Warehouse, an exclusive members-only club, and residence.

“I’m saying, ‘You don’t know what I’m dealing with right now,’ West told Entertainment Tonight, referring to footage of him snapping at Poplawski. “I just finished these two songs, I came from the studio, and this dude, he just had this real attitude, like, ‘What you gonna do? And see that?’ Imma just tell you, that blue COVID mask ain’t stop that knockout, you know what I’m saying?”
