The chief of police in a small Ohio town is taking a big swipe at Kanye West, warning the megastar to, "Check yourself, before you wreck yourself."
This comes just days after West compared the danger of his work to that of police officers and soldiers in war, telling a radio host he puts his life "literally" on the line each day.
After all, the rapper noted, he could slip on stage.
"I think about my family and I'm like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, or like war or something," he said in an interview over the weekend with the radio show Saturday Night Online. "You're literally going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen to you."
Those remarks sparked outrage from some in the media and entertainment worlds, and now police and veterans' advocates are weighing in on the controversy.
