People love hearing about celebs losing it or becoming unhinged. The only thing better is actually seeing them do it. Hence, that is why every single person you know couldn't wait to click on that infamous video of Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z. Now the person responsible for bringing us that crazy, 3 minute and 31 second video has lost his job and you know what, that's just not fair.
A rep for the Standard Hotel -- where the melee went down -- released a statement saying that they have identified the culprit responsible for selling the video and have kicked him to the curb for "recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ." Not only that, they are considering suing the poor guy and filing criminal charges for breaching security policies. So looks like he may need that $250,000 he was paid for legal fees.
Seems like an overreaction to me. In fact, he did the world an incredible favor. For better or worse, this is the biggest celeb news story in a week. It has everyone's tongue wagging trying to guess the reasons why. Is Jay Z cheating? Is Solange just crazy? Why didn't Bey try to stop the beat down? Some may say this situation is a private matter and none of our business. Well, privacy went out the window when Solange lunged at the guy in public. She can be seen kicking and hitting at Jay Z even after the elevator doors opened.
The only thing this guy is guilty of is exposing an embassing moment among three stars.

Do you think the employee who leaked the video should have been fired?
