Kanye West broke up a paparazzi fight on Friday, and all it took was a hug. Check out the video below.

West was swarmed outside an airport when the incident, which was naturally caught on camera, occurred. As seen in the footage, the rapper was getting crushed in a sea of fans, but happily so. As he signed autographs, a number of photographers were among the crowd, all trying to get their shot.

Two of the paparazzi ended up shoving each other, and one even took a swing that didn’t connect. The men broke away from the pack and were starting to brawl when West rushed over and put his arm around of the guys from behind. The performer than pulled the photographer into a full-on hug, and tensions subsided.

It was rare instance of West actually showing concern for the paparazzi, with whom he’s had countless skirmishes over the years. In fact, it was nearly a year ago that he settled a lawsuit with a photographer stemming from one such fight. By last fall, West, who pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge from the attack, had satisfied much of his plea deal agreement, even doing more community service than required, but remains on informal probation.

Perhaps these other paparazzi can learn from his mistakes. Watch it all go down below.
