Kanye West fuming over Jimmy Kimmel spoof

Kanye West fuming over Jimmy Kimmel spoof

Kimmel and West either are engaged in a bitter feud or a heck of a parody.

Kanye West has published a scathing rant aimed at Jimmy Kimmel after the show host and comedian spoofed the rapper on his late-night talk show.

The comedian recently poked fun at West’s hour-long BBC Radio 1 interview by recreating it with a child actor playing the outspoken hip-hop star on his show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

However, West appears to have been offended by the sketch, and the new father took to his Twitter.com page on Thursday to criticize Kimmel.

In all capital letters, West tweeted, “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years. 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. Jimmy Kimmel, put yourself in my shoes… Oh no that means you would have gotten too much good (expletive) 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???”

He then referenced Kimmel’s comedienne ex-girlfriend, adding, “Sarah Silverman is a thousand times funnier than you and the whole world knows it!!!”

Kimmel took to the site to respond to West’s messages, tweeting, “Apparently Kanye West is VERY VERY ANGRY with me…” before telling followers, “I’ll tell you the whole story about Kanye West tonight on the show – this is not a prank, I promise (unless it’s being played on me).”

West allegedly told Kimmel his life would be “much better” if he apologized.

“We just had the kids say the stuff Kanye said and apparently this upset him,” Kimmel said. “Finally I’m in a rap feud!”
