Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye Wes

Kanye West busted out his signature ALL-CAPS tweets to lash out at Jimmy Kimmel for poking fun at his recent BBC interview. (Which was so crazy on its own, it almost didn’t even need to be spoofed.)

Check out the biggest celebrity feuds

On Wednesday night, Kimmel had two children recite a portion of the transcript from Yeezy’s interview, which included a rant about leather jogging pants and ‘Ye screaming about being the biggest rock star on the planet.

West was none too happy over the parody and made sure Kimmel — and the entire world — knew it. 

West’s rant also included a few photographs he captioned with explicit insults: “SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F—ING BEN AFFLECK… #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!”

On the other hand, Kimmel kept his responses civil and even RT’d a few of Kanye’s prize burns.

The late-night host then addressed the feud on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night. “He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly…and that was really the only choice!” Kimmel said with a laugh. “The other choice he gave was that my life—’Your life,’ he said, ‘is going to be much better if you apologize.’ Then he started tweeting today and I don’t even know if I’ve seen some of these tweets, because they’re happening as we speak…”

“And he told me this on the phone, I swear,” Kimmel continued after reading a few of West’s tweets, “he said, ‘I am the most powerful voice in media. I am ‘Pac! He said ‘I am ‘Pac’ a few times to me. He said, ‘You’ll never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again.’

“I don’t understand it, I don’t know why he’s angry again,” Kimmel continued. “I thought the bit was pretty innocuous. Finally I’m in a rap feud.”
