Jimmy Kimmel recently (and officially) responded to Kanye’s Twitter rant on his late night show. You can read more about it here.
You can imagine my face when I came back from working out and saw his tweets on my timeline.
But before I get to all of that, here’s the back story:
Kanye West hopped on Twitter earlier this evening to blast Jimmy Kimmel for his recent spoof of West. As most of you know, West sat down with BBC Radio 1 recently and gave a very impassioned interview. This interview in question is what Kimmel ended up spoofing, which included two kids reenacting a segment of the interview.
Before showing the spoof, which was entitled “Kanye Kid (re)Kreation”, Kimmel had this to say:
“He said he’s the No. 1 rock star on the planet, whatever planet he’s on,” He laughed. “Does Kanye West know you’re not supposed to your own hype man?”
Kanye didn’t appreciate Kimmel’s playful jab at all and shot back with a series of fiery tweets:
“Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years. I don’t take it as a joke…you manipulative media mutherfucker.”
West didn’t stop there either. He even brought up Kimmel’s ex, Sarah Silverman:
“Sarah Silverman is a thousand times funnier than you and the whole world knows it!” He angrily tweeted.
That was slightly harsh.
Kimmel ended up responding and said that he’d explain the whole situation on Thursday night on his show:
“I’ll tell you the whole story about tonight on the show – this is not a prank, I promise (unless it’s being played on me)” He tweeted.
So, there’s your back story.
Now, please strap yourself in while I unleash the entirety of Kanye’s twitter rant:
If you ask me, Kanye maybe taking this whole spoof thing a little too seriously. However, you be the judge. You can watch the spoof for yourself below:
