Jimmy Kimmel Responds to Kanye West Tirade Over BBC Interview Spoof (Video)

The late night host says “finally, I'm in a rap feud,” and that the situation has reached “DefKanye Five” level

Jimmy Kimmel opened his Thursday monologue by addressing the hip-hop elephant in the room: “It's been a weird — quick question, did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago?” he asked.

In the show's second segment, Kimmel explained the whole Twitter beef that came as a result of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” spoofing a Kanye interview. The host said that West called him demanding a public apology, saying, “Your life is going to be much better if [you] apologize.”

Still, the angry tweets from the rapper kept flowing, to varying degrees of clarity. Kimmel read and responded to some on his TV show.


“I've seen the video,” Kimmel replied, referring to Kim Kardashian‘s sex tape with singer Ray J. “I know.”

It should be noted that Jimmy Kimmel is the reigning Hollywood prank king, and that he fooled essentially the entire media with his “Twerking Girl on Fire” hoax. While the ABC host has said that this time it's real and not a prank, one has to maintain a healthy degree of skepticism. Still, it's hilarious regardless.

Back to the beef:

Kanye then began ranting on the social media platform about a wedding they had mutually been guests at: “I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING.”

Kimmel clarified that it was actually a friend's wedding. Apparently that did not sit too well with Yeezus.

While that seems complimentary to Silverman, the next post confuses that a bit. West posted a photo of Jimmy on Twitter with the words “NO GOOD PUSSY” superimposed.

“OK, well, I think that's insulting Sarah, by the way,” Kimmel quipped.

It only got weirder on the telephone when Kanye West reportedly told Jimmy, ”I am the most powerful voice in media.” He then allegedly declared, “I am PAC.”

To which Kimmel hilariously concluded, “Finally, I'm in a rap feud,” declaring the whole situation, “DefKanye Five.”

    hahaha YUMAD Kanye?

    THE BLACKS WHO RANT ON THESE COMMENT SECTIONS CANNOT speak without using four letter words. They always use sexual references to express themselves, because their vocabulary is so lacking. Kaynee probably never went to school. He is just another dumb black who made some money and thinks he is God, just like Obama. “The Emperor” What a joke he is. And who care how much P………this idiot got. He swings both ways so he gets a lot of both. His rant proves his lack of intelligence.

    • Maria is a closet racist

      You are obviously very intelligent. One could also characterize you as ignorant at the same time. Maybe even a closet racist. Come out all the way Maria, say what you REALLY mean to say. “THE BLACKS WHO RANT” “another dumb black” oh and you have to bring Obama into this to show that you are politically savvy as well.

      • maria is not a closet racist

        I looked at Maria's previous posts and have determined that she is not a closet Racist. She is a verifiable racist completely out of the closet. She also seems to have an obsession with pointing out deficiencies in others grammar abilities. I guess it is comforting to criticize others instead of looking inside at the hateful, ugly, simple minded pea size of a brain in her head.

        • Maria Stringer

          You are right! I do feel resentful of many blacks who tear our country down, I AM OUT OF THE CLOSET WITH THIS! And I don't say:
          Wit Chew……instead of with you
          Ax……………” of ask
          Dat……instead of that
          He be……for He is
          dress like gangsters………showing their butt cracks……
          on and on and on…..My black friends do not speak like ghetto rats and there is no reason for the hoods to use that ghetto grammar. Say what you will about me but you should be using your energy to help your own race lift itself up.
          None of you are African! You are black Americans, period and should be proud of it! Nuff said.

          • Nyakairu

            They are African Americans just as they are Italian Americans, French Americans, Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, ….

      • Maria Stringer

        I am certainly NOT in the closet!! I feel strongly that the blacks do not appreciate or love our country. Because they are always screaming racism…..They had the same opportunities I did. I was an orphan ……raised in the streets with no family at all. I didn't spend my life whining, I worked my way thru school, started my first business in my twenties, have been very successful in all that I have done. I certainly didn't expect the taxpayer's to take care of me. I worked hard, put three children thru college and one is a Doctor. Many of your people can not put a sentence together without referring to sexual words to express themselves. If you think I am ignorant, what to you think of Kaynee West??? And many others blacks who spew hatred of the successful whites while constantly saying words that are so inappropriate with references to sexual body parts and activity in every sentence. It sickens me! And should you too. These stupid, ignorant, violent blacks are ruining this country. They alone have caused me to feel disgust and anger at them. I think K. West is mentally disturbed!!

          Maria, you are not as intelligent as you believe yourself to be. Racism is ignorant and you are a racist. How can you have “black friends” yet have so much hatred of black people in general? Your posts go from hatred of “many blacks who tear our country down” to the more general “the blacks do not appreciate or love our country”. Tell me, Maria. Do these “black friends” of yours know the kinds of things you post on these boards? I'll bet not. Now, I am certainly no fan of Kanye West or anyone – black, white, or other – who is hateful, represents themselves without pride, and who just generally lowers the entire human race with the things they say and the things they do. Guess what, Maria? You also fall into that category. So before you climb up on your superior high horse and look down at anyone else, take stock and see yourself for who you are and what you represent. Believe me. It is not a good look for you. Oh yes. I happen to be black. Now rant away and attack if it makes you feel better.

          • Maria Stringer

            Use that anger to help your own race and stop ragging on mine! Go preach to the blacks about using condoms for a start!
            And thank you for saying “I happen to be black” That is a fact, so be proud of it. None of your generation are African.
            They are black Americans. Accept it.

          • TJ

            A few minor points: (1) I am a black American of primarily African descent. I am proud of it. My father fought for this country and worked hard to take care of his family until the day he died. I have no reason not to be proud and, believe it or not, I do not need your guidance to feel that way. (2) Nothing in my original post “ragged” on your race. I “ragged” on you. (3) I am not angry. You are not worthy of my anger.
            I am curious about something, though. Do your “black friends” read your posts? Do they know how you really feel about them – how much contempt you have for them? Or do you show one face to them and then show your real face online – where no one knows who you are? Just a rhetorical question. No response is necessary.
            And I am now officially done with this conversation. Have a wonderful life.

        • Nyakairu

          There are more white people depending on the government than all minorities combined, and I am almost certain you are one of them. Your rant is irrational at best.

        • proudblkman

          When discussing what or whom is inappropriate you should look at what you post prior to doing so. The appropriate comment here would be regarding ignorant people not placing a specific color on it. There are people from each ethnicity and socioeconomic backgrounds that portray their specific subset in a horrific light. By you saying “many of your people” actually shows that you to a degree are only on a slightly higher level then the people in which you are ranting about. It is disheartening to see how many people pass off their bigotry as being concerned with the way this country is going when it is truly nothing more than racist banter. My children (four of them by the same woman) 2 attorneys (1 private practice 1 associate district attorney) 1 dentist and 1 who is a freshman running back studying Computer Programming and minoring in pre law are all black.

    • Tina

      Your RANT come across just as hateful as Kanye's rant. Just thought I would point out the irony…and yes I am black. I am especially amused by the fact that you complain about Blacks who use derogatory language on this section and you go ahead and you take a stab at Kanye's sexuality. Low blows just bring you to his level.
      While I am not a fan of Kanye, I certainly do not care for people who take swings at an entire race because of the actions of a few.

    • Gordon Franklin Terry, Sr.

      spread the word: REPUBLICANS ARE DEVILS. The Republicans are Devils who are racist and HURT OUR COUNTRY by hating President Obama so much. RACISM IS A DISEASE!!!!!!! its a problem that is threatening to destabilize The United States of America's economy and safety and well-being of its citizenry.

      • Maria Stringer

        If racism is a disease then the blacks have more of it than anyone. They totally hate the white race who has done more for them than any race that has come to the USA. Personally, I am sick of their whining about inequality. Teach your sons to use condoms and to speak our language correctly. AND YOU ARE NOT AFRICAN! You are black Americans, period!

    • Nyakairu

      You are nothing but a racist. You seem to have a lot anger towards black people. Did some black men screw & dump you?

  • WhoCares

    Straight Jacket – STAT….either Kanye IS really that empty headed (dumb) or completely delusional, well – maybe both! Did you know he hangs out with architects? By that association, he is the leading authority about architecture. I could go on all day about the many specialties which he is the “authority,” “voice,” “founder,” or THE guy who popularized just about anything (but especially leather track pants)!

    • Gordon Franklin Terry Sr

      KANYE WEST is a disgusting man filled with disgusting and repulsive thoughts. You can tell a person's spirit–their heart–by the things they say.

    • redcarol57

      He's a mouth breathing moron. Seriously, Kayne is a dolt.

    • vzzy

      yep! He is nutz!

  • ThomasER916

    Headline should read:

    Kanye got Clowned!


    Blacks are racially insecure about everything.

  • jr61020

    This clown is uneducated and he proves that with his tweets. What a tool..he and kim are suited for each other
