Jimmy Kimmel talks about Kanye West Twitter feud

Jimmy Kimmel talks about Kanye West Twitter feud

Kanye West has never been one lost for words. In his latest rant the rapper makes several profanity-studded Tweets to late-night star Jimmy Kimmel in response to a sketch the comedic host did that poked fun at Kanye’s much-talked-about interview with BBC Radio One.

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” just hours after the fight with West, and the talk show host revealed the drama actually began earlier that night with “a very angry phone call” from the rapper.

“He told me I had two choices: apologize publicly…and that was really the only choice!” Jimmy said. “The other choice he gave was that my life—’Your life,’ he said, ‘is going to be much better if you apologize.’ Then he started tweeting today and I don’t even know if I’ve seen some of these tweets, because they’re happening as we speak…”

Kimmel seemed baffled by West’s response and stated again that the skit was a spoof. But hot button West took it very personal.

“And he told me this on the phone, I swear,” he said, ‘I am the most powerful voice in media. I am ‘Pac! He said ‘I am ‘Pac’ a few times to me. He said, ‘You’ll never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again.’

“He really is ‘Pac,” Jimmy said, smiling but looking more than confused. “That’s right ouf of the Tupac playbook, isn’t it?”

“I don’t understand it, I don’t know why he’s angry again,” Jimmy continued. “I thought the bit was pretty innocuous. Finally I’m in a rap feud.”
