Video After The Jump
Kanye West doesn't like to be the butt of anyone's jokes. The rapper went on a Twitter tirade aimed at comedian/talk show host Jimmy Kimmel over a video Kimmel aired spoofing West's four-part interview with Zane Lowe of BBC Radio 1.
In the spoof, Kimmel had two children eating ice cream floats portray West and Lowe. That set Yeezy off. He ranted on Twitter, and at one point called Jimmy on the phone.
"He called me. He told me I had 2 choices. Number 1, apologize publicly. And that was really the only choice," Jimmy told the audience on his show Thursday, September 26. "The other choice he gave is 'your life he is going to be much better if you apologize,' He said 'I am the most powerful voice in media. I am 'Pac.' He said 'you'll never be able to show your face at a 14 year old's football game and be cool again.' He really is 'Pac. That is right out of the Tupac playboook isn't it?" Kimmel joked. "I don't understand it. I don't know why he's angry. The bit was pretty innocuous. Finally I'm in a rap feud."
West sent out a series of tweets aimed at Kimmel, including a couple of photos with captions.
The Hollywood Reporter captured the social media exchange between the two.
