Tattoo artist and Ink LA reality TV star Kat Von D yelled at camera crews who were filming outside of her famous West Hollywood tattoo shop, High Voltage Tattoo. High Voltage and three other shops were seriously damaged by an early morning fire. Kat Von D came out of the shop swatting at camera crews and yelling to them, “Have some f—king respect.” A camerawoman from CBS2/KCAL9 News said Kat Von D pushed her repeatedly and had clawed at her forehead. After a warning from sheriffs, Kat Von D was caught on film doing it again.
According to the Los Angeles Times, in 2010, Von D’s home in the Hollywood Hills was also severely damage by a fire, which killed her cat.
