Kanye West Flips His Shit After Jimmy Kimmel Parody

Written by Tom Williams on September 27, 2013

Yeezus, he’s at it again. Kanye West has launched another ALL CAPS Twitter tirade, this time against American talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, after a sketch on the host’s TV show poked fun at Kanye’s recent interview with BBC’s Radio 1.

In the sketch (below) Kimmel has two child actors ‘re-kreate’ some of the outlandish statements said by Kanye during his time with the BBC’s Zane Lowe. One of the choice phrases chosen for the recreation is, “Rap is new rock ‘n’ roll. We the rockstars, and I’m the biggest of all of them.”

The sketch also revives Kanye’s self-agrandizing statement, with a perfect child-Kanye half-scream: “I’m a product person. Not just clothing, but water bottle design, architecture, everything you can think about.” The water bottles of the real interview are even swapped out for milkshakes, a nice touch.

Kanye has responded via his Twitter account, saying: “JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” and “JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD PUSSY IN YOUR LIFE…”

The full BBC interview is being released in four parts. Parts one, two and three are already online.

Check out Kimmel’s sketch below, and have a read through Kanye’s Twitter rant, which is still underway at time of publishing.
