Wow, here’s one fight we didn’t see coming.
Kanye West and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel are currently engaging in a nasty war of words on Twitter over a comedy skit Kimmel produced making fun of the egocentric rapper.
West’s bizarre and highly entertaining BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe has been the talk of the Internet this week, so Kimmel decided capitalize on the hype by having two children reenact the video on his show. “Does Kanye West know you’re not supposed to be your own hype man,” Kimmel joked while introducing the skit.
After Kanye learned of the video, he took to Twitter to rip into Kimmel.
- “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, I don’t take it as a joke … You don’t have scum bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter,” the rapper added in a series of tweets.
- “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.
Kimmel responded to the tweets writing, “apparently @kanyewest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me.”
The host also wrote that he would address the feud on Thursday night’s show. “I’ll tell you the whole story about @kanyewest tonight on the show – this is not a prank, I promise (unless it’s being played on me).”
