Jimmy Kimmel, Kanye West Feud on Twitter After Late-Night Spoof

Musician Kanye West laid into comedian Jimmy Kimmel in an all-caps Twitter tirade on Thursday after Kimmel did a parody skit that poked fun at a recent interview West did with BBC Radio 1.

Kimmel’s late-night show spoofed West’s comment that he was the top rock star on the globe by using two bratty kids to reenact the interview.

West responded with the Internet equivalent of screaming by using all caps and laced his responses with profanity.

In the actual interview, West said he’s at a point “that Michael Jackson did not break.” He also said rappers are the new rock stars and “I’m the biggest one.”

West, 36, also threw insults.

Kimmel likely angered West more with this response:

Kimmel said on his show Thursday that West had called him and demanded an apology. Instead, he responded to each of West's tweets on the air.

"He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week," Kimmel said in his monologue. It was "pretty innocuous," he said.

The twitter exchange between the two proved entertaining for observers.

Kimmel has played along with some elaborate pranks in the past, leading some to believe this was another one. However, he later tweeted that the feud was "not a prank," unless one was being played on him.
