What the heck is going on between Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel? Last night they took over the Twitterverse with back and forth bickering that has left fans wondering if it's all a joke or for real.
Here's what happened. West gave an hour-long interview with BBC radio on Monday. He called himself "a god" and talked about how he invented leather jogging pants.
And so Kimmel, of course, poked fun of it Wednesday night on his show. Here is a clip, in case you missed it.
But West apparently did not find the bit funny. He responded with the following angry tweets (we'll pick out the ones without the obscenities but to read them all head over to Yeezy's Twitter account).
JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE…. YOU DON'T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
Then ... what seemed like a possible olive branch.
I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
How has Kimmel responded?
apparently @KanyeWest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me....— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) September 27, 2013
I like you too! Glad we cleared this up. RT @kanyewest I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) September 27, 2013
So is it all a joke? Not according to Kimmel.
I'll tell you the whole story about @kanyewest tonight on the show - this is not a prank, I promise (unless it's being played on me)— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) September 27, 2013
Check out Kimmel's response last night in the video below. He told his audience all about the tweets and said Kanye called him an hour before the show and asked him to publicly apologize. Of course this was all just more fodder for the comedian.
"Finally, I'm in a rap feud," he told his audience, who laughed.
How do you think this feud will end? Do you think West will wind up a guest on Kimmel's show?
