Hotheaded rapper and wiseacre late-night host to face off after West trashed Kimmel
Apparently, Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel are ready to kiss and make up. Or maybe tear each other limb from limb.
Outspoken rapper West will appear on Kimmel's ABC late-night show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday, following a social-media war of words that found West calling Kimmel a “manipulative media mutherfucka.”
Followers of this sort of thing may recall that West threw a Twit-fit at Kimmel late last month. The tirade came after Kimmel spoofed an interview that West gave to BBC Radio, in which the rapper came off to some as self-aggrandizing.
In the skit, Kimmel used children to reenact the interview.
“JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” West raged in one tweet.
“JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD PUSSY IN YOUR LIFE…,” another missive read.
Kimmel responded to West's digi-rant on his show, saying that the rapper had called him for an apology.
“Finally, I’m in a rap feud,” Kimmel cracked, adding that the situation had reached “DefKanye Five.”
