Kanye West launches angry Twitter rant against Jimmy Kimmel spoof
The rapper isn't known for his ability to take a joke
Kanye West has launched a Twitter attack against US presenter Jimmy Kimmel after his show ran a spoof of an interview Kanye gave to Radio 1 earlier this week.
The spoof shows a child playing Kanye, dressed in a puffa jacket with a huge gold chain, speaking to the child version of Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.
While sipping his milkshake, the child Kanye says: “I’m a broad person, not just clothing but architecture and design…anything you can think about. Where’s the culture at? We cultured. Rap is new rock and roll. We’re the new rock stars, and I’m the biggest of all of them.”
But the cute children’s’ parody has not gone down well with Kanye, who launched an angry tirade against the presenter.
He said: “JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” and continued by laying into the presenter’s looks.
In a reference to a spoof Kimmel did about Ben Affleck earlier this year, he said: “SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOUR F***ING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISREPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOKIMMYKIMMEL [sic].”
Kimmel responded to Kanye’s tweets on his show last night, making light of the comments and meme photographs the rapper had posted to Twitter.
The talk show host declined to apologise on air, saying: “I don’t know, I don’t understand it, the [spoof] was pretty innocuous.”
