The Twitter verse exploded with Kanye West fiercely attacking Jimmy Kimmel. The TV funnyman invoked the ire of the musician after Kimmel spooked an interview that Kanye had given to the BBC a day before.
45-year old Jimmy Kimmel is known for using spoof videos to put a humorous turn on pop culture and even political events.
Kanye West, however, was not amused with how Kimmel used his recent interview to generate laughs on his talk show. In a span of a mere 56 minutes, Kanye spurt out 10 furious tweets attacking Kimmel’s spoof videos.
Kanye began his twitter attack on Kimmel by telling Kimmel that he was out of line spoofing the “first piece of honest media in years”. The tweets continued to get incredibly bizarre till Kanye was openly hurling abuses at Kimmel.
Kanye also tweeted two questionable images of Kimmel. Kimmel to added fuel to the fire by vowing that he would respond to Kanye’s twitter attack on his show the very same night and threatening Kanye that he would unfollow Kanye if the twitter rant didn’t stop.
Crooner Josh Groban tried to mend things between the two though the funnyman tweeted a YouTube video of Groban singing Kanye’s tweets. No word on whether Kanye found that funny or not.
It would be interesting to see whether Kimmel spoofs Kanye’s twitter rants on his show or not and whether doing so would add fuel to the feud that has begun to simmer between the two.
