Remember that time Kanye West ran smack into a sign while trying to shield himself from the shutters of the paparazzi (inadvertently giving them some excellent tabloid fodder)?

The property owner in Beverly Hills decided to raise the sign so that West—or anyone else not looking where they're going—won't run into the sign again, according to TMZ, which called the modification "Kanye-proofing." They have a photo of the new, taller sign.

It sounds like West hasn't made any legal threats—it seems like most of his rage over the head-smashing incident was aimed at the photos following him around.
