Kanye takes a page from Marshawn Lynch's playbook in order to neutralize the paparazzi.
No one likes the paparazzi, but Kanye West reserves a hatred of the parasitic photographers that has produced countless *SMH Kanye* moments. But with his latest paparazzi reaction, it appears that he's finally figured out how to deal with his mortal enemy.
Walking from his car into the terminal at LAX, Kanye is immediately swarmed by paparazzi. He takes a page from the playbook of the great Marshawn Lynch, responding to every question with a curt "thank you." It's really a steady of stream of "thank yous" and it successfully bemuses and neutralizes his opponent. Kill em with kindness.
