Jimmy Kimmel Responds To Kanye “2 Pac” West
On Thursday afternoon, Kanye West sent Jimmy Kimmel some fiery messages via Twitter over an interview spoof the comedian produced of the rapper’s recent interview with BBC Radio 1’s, Zane Lowe.
“Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years,” West wrote on the social media website. “Jimmy Kimmel, put yourself in my shoes … Oh no, that means you would have gotten too much good pu**y in your life,” another tweet read.
On Thursday night, the comedian/host addressed the issue on Jimmy Kimmel Live revealing that Kanye actually called him an hour before going on air.
“He told me on the phone, and I swear to God this is true … ‘I am the most powerful voice in media. I am Pac.’ He said Pac a few times to me,” Kimmel joked. “”I guess he means Tupac.”
“He said, ‘You will never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again.’ He really is Pac. I mean, that’s right out of the Tupac playbook, isn’t it,” the late night host explained.
“So, I don’t know. I don’t understand it. I don’t know why he’s angry. That bit was pretty innocuous,” Jimmy said in reference to the sketch he produced of two young children re-enacting West’s entertaining and peculiar interview with the BBC host.
“Right now we’re at Def-Kanye Five,” Jimmy concluded. “Thanks, Kanye, appreciate it.”
