Kanye West pulled out all the punches (literally) when it came to coming to Kim Kardashian's defense after she was slammed with racial slurs. Now, Kanye is a suspect in a misdemeanor battery complaint.

According to TMZ, Kim was swarmed by paparazzi when she entered a Beverly Hills medical building. When a 18-year-old man tried to help Kim enter the building, he simultaneously called the photographers racial slurs (It's 2014, people. Can we stop the racial name calling?).

When Kim told the man that it was not appropriate to use the N-word, the attack turned personal on Kim. Kim then called Kanye, in which the man also threw some racially charged words at the rapper via phone.

Violence doesn't solve anything but honestly who the hell goes around calling people the N-word? It looks like one good deed was also met with some harsh prejudice.

When Kanye arrived to the scene, the duo entered the medical office's waiting room, and Kanye punched the teen. Kim is now claiming that the man allegedly threatened to kill her.

Not a stranger to assault charges, the rapper was under investigation in November for an altercation with a photographer in LAX.

DISCUSS: If you were the brunt of a racially charged verbal attack, would you expect your significant other to use their hands to stop it?

Modern Family star Winter emancipated herself from her emotionally abusive "stage mother," Chrisoula Workman, in 2015, and was placed in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Gray, in the meantime. "This is what she wanted me to do, and she pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what I wanted and what I needed," she told People about her mother. "And that was definitely hard, but I don't think that was the only issue." She also addressed the difficulty of growing up under the paparazzi's gaze: "It's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that tough situation and have an open court case and have everyone look at it, because it's already hard enough for abuse victims, but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion," she explained.
