Kanye West Blasts Jimmy Kimmel Over BBC Interview Spoof

Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye Wes
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.”
