Paparazzi attacked and left unconscious over Rumer Willis

July 12th, 2007 // 154 Comments

A paparazzi photog was brutally attacked last night in Hollywood after the ESPY Awards and was left unconscious and convulsing on the ground (the video above is the aftermath). The fight began when two random assholes decided to act as Rumer Willis’ bodyguards as she made her way out of Skybar. TMZ reports:

According to witnesses on scene, one of the men allegedly tripped a photographer who was attempting to take pix of the star. As the stunned shutterbug got up and tried to identify the culprit, we’re told another friend of the wannabe-bodyguards grabbed the photog by the head and slammed him to the ground head first, knocking him out and causing convulsions… Cops arrived shortly after and the man who allegedly slammed the photog to the ground was arrested. The snapper was rushed to a hospital, where he was treated for three cracked ribs, a possibly dislocated shoulder and a concussion.

Yeah, sometimes the paparazzi can go too far but this is fucking ridiculous. Look at the way the attacker walks around afterwards. I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy’s parents were brother and sister. This is exactly the kind of person I’d expect if people started mating with vegetables.

    That video doesn’t show anything except a bunch of no-name yahoos shoving each other and windmilling like a bunch of pansies. When the camera pans left, the guy is already on the ground convulsing – you can’t see what happened to him.

    Good to know that people are fucking jackasses, even in the paradise of Los Angeles. Who fucking cares about moon-faced Rumer Willis anyway?

    “attempting to take pix of the star”

    Excuse me? When was this girl deemed a “star”? She’s had a couple of teeny roles in a couple of movies and she has famous parents. If she’s a star then so am I.

    And you’d better watch yourself, thatcher. I’ve reported your post, expect the FBI in minutes. Enjoy.

    God men… They’re so gross when they act like that, especially that bust-bump the guy in the tan shirt. Fucking ridiculous is right.

  10. OkieHeather

    freakin idiots. i love how the guy towards the end says, call a ambu-LANCE. call a ambu-LANCE!

  11. Honeycomb's_big_yeahyeahyeah!

    Rumer fucking Willis??

    I think the paparrazi were looking over Rumer’s shoulder and saw the guy who used to do the McCain Superfries ad.
    Or maybe Orville Redenbacher’s nephew. Or the lady who played Pearl the housekeeper on “Diff’rent Strokes.”
    They couldn’t have noticed this emo pimple.

  12. Anexio

    This is freaking ridiculous!

    It’s not like the Secret Service guarding the President beat the guy up, this was Rumer Willis’ volunteer bodyguards.

    Personally I think they were totally justified in protecting this huge huge star.

    I love it when the paparazzi gets their ass handed to them.

    Now if we could just start shooting them or even decapitating them in the street, that would be sweet!

    Nice shorts jackass. Only Wiggas wear shorts down to their ankles with white socks.

    Thatcher is right about America being filled with pigs, oink oink! Although the 9/11 comment is a little extreme, people dying for religion (or oil) is beyond me.

    ..and #8 Kate is a dirty little whore for reporting people on a site as smutty as this.

  17. UglyGirl

    thnx #s 8, 11, 12.
    seriously? rumer willis is a STAR???!!?? wtf.

  18. Tim

    The irony is that the moron was trying to defend a “celeb” who looks like her own head had been slammed to the ground. Shortly after birth. And a few more times after that.

  19. anonymous bastard

    This is low. Ok, a lot of people hate paparazzi.

    But if you are visiting gossip sites, you are one of the reasons why paps exist. As long as people want to see pictures of ‘stars’, paps will be around to make that pictures.

    Most paps are completly harmless, yes there are the occasional assholes, but there are more assholes here than on the streets of LA.

    It is disgusting, how that pap was attacked and hurt. I hope someone will assrape the fuckfaces who did it.

  20. YouRang

    #13 I agree with you completely. Fuck the paparazzi. I hope this kind of thing starts happening constantly.

  21. Mdiz

    Lets see how tough Cletus is when his ass is handed to him in jail. Besides isn’t beating up on the Paparazzi kinda like beating up the slow kid, sure it’s fun, but you still look like an asshole. I guess thats what happens when your sister is your mother.

    #9 Chest bump! Love it!

    “Or the lady who played Pearl the housekeeper on “Diff’rent Strokes.” ”
    there was no Pearl, Dumas. it was Mrs. Garrett. Charlotte Rae. and she’s a legitimate star unlike Rumer Willis.



    I can’t beleive you think it is a good thing that 3,000 innocent people died. People hate America why? Because our country is the greatest, most powerful country in the world. How would you like it if 3,000 of your friends, family and neighbors were killed for no other reason than they were from whatever back-ass country you come from???

  24. Rudy Giuliani

    bah, Thatcher’s not so bad. The only problem with 9/11 is that we didn’t get enough warning to pack the 2 towers with morons like this guy. If they do acquire a small nuke, we might be able to clean up all the rabble in one day. (Or they could just set it off in downtown L.A.)

    I wonder if he was really “convulsing”… all those guys look to pussyish to do that kind of damage.

  26. Ryan

    I am willing to pay their bail.. the paparazzi should chalk that up as par for the course for being professional nuisances

  27. Redhead

    # 16, The word is filled with pigs, not just the good old USA. They’re called “Men”.

  28. you've got to be kidding!

    “How would you like it if 3,000 of your friends, family and neighbors were killed for no other reason than they were from whatever back-ass country you come from???”

    If he’s from Iraq, the number is 50,000 plus innocent civilians.

    Nice fuckin “challenge” you fuckin moron. You’re why Americans are hated.

  29. Trizzle

    Don’t even start to feel sorry for the paparazzi. They deserve that and so much more. Too bad the guy got caught…




    How many of the 301,000,000 Americans do you actually know, personally? I bet none!

  31. drewski

    Anyone defending the papsmears is obviously one themselves. They are scumbag fucksticks. Being pummeled into convulsions is too good for those maggots in my opinion. How about gouging their eyes out, then letting Superfish fuck their empty eyesockets? Oh, that’s right, that won’t work because Superfish has a pussy where his dick should be. Can we get a picture of that ‘fish?

  32. kate

    my ears are still ringing from all those ‘beeps’…

  33. my comment

    Where’s the video?
    It’s not working at my end.

  34. Jen#2

    I think it’s awful what happened to that poor guy, stars have so much money and act like such asshole’s, they deserve the paparazzi.

    As for Rumer she runs around trying to get the paparazzi to take pics of her, so I don’t know where these guys get off hurting that poor man.

    I hope that guy get thrown in jail, and put in a cell with a big horny guy.

  35. wienus

    Who the fuck is Rumer Willis?

    Why does any give a shit about this ugly face. I just saw a picture of her hideous man-jaw. She looks like that Bruce Willis guy from the Sixth Sense but in drag. Are you sure these people weren’t attacking her?

  36. my comment

    Anyone who says the paparazzi deserved to be beaten unconscious shouldn’t be on this site.


  37. Truth


    50,000 “innocent civilians”… sounds like you’re the moron… douchebag.

  38. Knock-out Expert

    People don’t really convulse like that if they’re knocked out. The dude was putting on a show for the other cameras.

  39. Penis Mightier

    The paparazzi guy deserves to get beaten for invading the life of a non-celebrity. I only wish somone would have held him down so Rumor herself could give him the beating.

  40. wanky

    wow white people in hollywood cannot fight for shit!! i especially liked how the guy pushed the other one and just fell back on his ass!

  41. Sorry but Americans are pigs. Oink oink! 9/11 doesn’t compare to what Americans have done overseas. So it was a good thing, to show Americans what vile pieces of shit a lot of them are.


  42. Chauncey Gardner

    It’s funny – fights in movies are always so dynamic and cool, but fights in real life always look totally fucking gay.

  43. Thatcher

    USA all the way!! I love Americans they are soo awesome!!! Us Brits suck donkey cock!!

  44. meaghan

    your video isn’t working, hope it gets fixed i haven’t got to see it yet

  45. whitegold

    Hmm, this is a tough one. Given how much of a problem the pap can be, and how much pain they’ve caused others, then it’s kind of good to see them getting some payback.

    Then again, you never want to see someone get seriously hurt.

    And it’s hard to support Rumer and her loser friends, just, cuz, well, they’re all douchebags.

    And it’s hard to really hate the pap, as much as I wish I could, cuz without the pap, we wouldn’t have all these good pics to gossip about. The fact that we all support a site like this, inadvertantly says that we support the pap for providing us with material to talk smack about.

    So confusing…

  46. I like the guy in the background making Chinese fight sounds.

    Does Superfish work for TMZ now?

    He/She said:
    The fight began when two random assholes decided to act as Rumer Willis’ bodyguards as she made her way out of Skybar.

    TMZ/Harvey Said:
    The fight began after two random jerks decided to act as Rumer Willis’ bodyguards as she made her way out of Skybar and then allegedly got violent with paparazzi.

    Since it wasn’t in quotes I assume Superfish is taking the credit? This kind of thing seems to be happening more frequently on here. I go to TMZ for the story and I come here for the pics and occasionally funny commentary. I’d like to keep it that way.

  48. Thatcher

    Will someone get this FrANCH toast stick out of my ass? I’m hungry.

  49. gigi

    I just wanna know who was yelling “what up my niggah” close to the end… what purpose was that serving?? lol and uh… #42 what is YOUR purpose here? unless you live in a vacuum in Antartica, drama like this is going down EVERYwhere on this planet, if not worse. Perhaps you just to see how the pretty letters looked when you hit the “post your comment” button
