Jimmy Kimmel’s Kanye-Spoof Ignites Twitter Tirade From West
Jimmy Kimmel might kicked a hornets’ nest when he aired a kid-spoof of a recent Kanye West interview. West, who is well known for not having a sense of humor, didn’t think it was worth laughing.
The interview that Kimmel aired a “Kid (re)Kreation” of was with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. During the interview, West referred to himself as the “biggest rockstar on the planet.” Maybe on Planet “Yeezus”, but here on Planet Earth, Kanye is better known as Kim Kardashian’s baby daddy and a hip-hop star.
West wasn’t too happy about being spoofed and took to Twitter to tell Kimmel just he thought. Kimmel seemed to take the heated tweet-barrage in stride, but that only served to further enrage West. The Hollywood Reporter has the Twitter exchange in it entirety.
