Kanye West Rants Against Jimmy Kimmel on Twitter

Yeezy slams the late night host for spoofing him.

Published September 27, 2013

Kanye West doesn't play around when it comes to his image, and he'll put anyone who does on blast. Yeezy went off on late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday, launching a Twitter rant against the comedian for making fun of his recent interview with BBC's Radio One, in which he refers to himself as the "number one rock star on the planet."

“Jimmy Kimmel is out of line for trying to spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years,” Yeezy's all-caps rant began. The superstar, who is currently facing charges for assaulting a paparazzo last month, continues: “Jimmy Kimmel, I don't take it as a joke…you don't have scumbags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter.” West was clearly referencing an incident this past August when paparazzi trespassed onto Kris Jenner's property to catch a glimpse of Kim Kardashian and the couple's daughter, North West.

The Yeezus rapper goes on to insult Kimmel's face and call him a "manipulative media mutherf*****."

The spoof, which aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live, features a young boy reciting actual quotes from Yeezy's interview. The kid even sips angrily from a milkshake between sound bites. "I brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said 'no'!" the junior Kanye exclaimed. "How many [bleep] you seen with leather jogging pants? Where the culture at? Where is the culture at?!"

Clearly, Kanye doesn't think the spoof is funny at all. Kimmel didn't respond immediately to Yeezy's attacks,  but did address them on his show Thursday night. The comedian revealed that he recieved an angry phone call from West earlier in the day, demanding Kimmel make a "public apology" for the spoof. The late night host then responded to West's tweets line by line and concluded by joking, "finally, I'm in a rap feud."
