Kanye West Sticks The Knife In On Twitter After Jimmy Kimmel’s “Rockstar” Interview Parody [Video]
Jimmy Kimmel used children to recreate Kanye's bizarre Radio 1 interview, West launched a furious Twitter tirade.
Jimmy Kimmel has well and truly riled rapper Kanye West after airing a spoof interview of Kanye's now-viral interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, in which Kanye describes himself as the world's biggest rockstar. TV host Kimmel recreated a scene from the interview, using the same words that were spoken but with children playing Kanye and Zane - complete with milkshakes.
Kanye West Goes On The Rant To End All Twitter Rants.
The parody is a clear joke and intended to poke fun at Kanye by showing how childish his interview where he declared "where is the culture?" really was. As if to illustrate Kimmel's point, Kanye took offence and turned to Twitter to vent his rage in a foul-mouthed, surreal tirade.
Mocking Kimmel's lack of comic ability, his relationships with women, his former girlfriend Sarah Silverman, his "crazy" face, as well as a cool use of alliteration with the insult "manipulative media m****f****r," Kanye wrote everything with the caps-lock key on, sticking the knife in in a furious campaign against Kimmel and his daring to mock Kanye.

"JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS," yelled Kanye's Twitter. "JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES ... OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P***Y IN YOUR LIFE."
"YOU CAN'T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY. IS THAT FUNNY?. OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???" roared Kanye via the internet, adding "SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!"
Kimmel Went A Step Too Far In Kanye's Book.
Then, perhaps trying to garner some favour from Kimmel, Kanye said "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" but any sympathy was dispelled by "SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F**KING BEN AFFLECK.#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK#ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!"
The Rapper Was Practically Asking To Be Mocked In His Radio 1 Interview.
The clash between the TV host and the rapper follows a long tradition of Kimmel using Kanye and his often ridiculous actions as joke fodder on his late night show. In 2011, Jimmy and Josh Groban ran a fake advert skit in which Josh Groban sang West's tweets flamboyantly whilst playing the piano, ranging from "Do you know where to find marble conference tables? I'm loking to have a conference...not until I get a table though," as well as "Fur pillows are hard to actually sleep on." And let's not forget "Man...whatever happened to my antique fish tank."
Because It's Worth Another Watch:
Although Kanye may be sick of being made fun of by Kimmel, he should learn to stop throwing about wild claims in interviews, be it that he's a rockstar or that he invented leather sweatpants. Part of us is hoping he won't though...
