Kanye West Slams Jimmy Kimmel Over Interview Spoof
Hell hath no fury like Yeezus. Kanye West has put Jimmy Kimmel on blast following a spoof on his talk show.
The comedian poked fun at the rapper by mocking his interview with Zane Lowe. In the parody entitled “Kimmel Kid (re)Kreation,” Kimmel hired a child actor to reenact his BBC Radio interview.
But Kanye did not find it funny. On Thursday, a furious ‘Ye fired back in a series of all-caps tweets.
“JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” he tweeted. “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.”
He continued, “JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD PUSSY IN YOUR LIFE. … YOU CAN’T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY… IS THAT FUNNY?… OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???”
“SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU FUCKING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!”
The two apparently had a conversation on the phone earlier today. “I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY’S WEDDING WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN’T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERFUCKER,” he tweeted.
“SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!”
He also posted a photo of Kimmel with the caption, “No Good Pussy.”
Watch the parody and see Kanye’s response below.
UPDATE: Kimmel has responded to Kanye on Twitter. He plans to tell the full story on his show tonight.
“apparently @KanyeWest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me….” tweeted the talk show host. “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).”
UPDATE 2: During his show on Thursday, Kimmel told viewers that he received a call from Kanye demanding that he publicly apologize. “Your life he said is gonna be much better if you apologize,” said Kimmel.
He also read his tweets on the air. When it came to the “good pussy” tweet, Kimmel responded, “I’ve seen the video, I know,” referring to Kim Kardashian’s sex tape.
Kanye also told him, “I am the most powerful voice in media. I am Pac.” He continued, “You will never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again.”
Kimmel laughed it off, adding, “I don’t know why he’s angry. The bit was I thought pretty innocuous, but finally I’m in a rap feud.”
