During his monologue last night, Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at Kanye West’s recent BBC interview which, to be fair, veers into the incoherent at times. Kimmel decided the interview would be even more amusing if reeenacted by child actors, specifically the part where Kanye tells reporter Zane Lowe about his idea for leather jogging pants. That brilliant spoof aired last night, and while one might think Kanye is too busy with his concert tour and new baby to watch all of the funny things the Internet makes about him, as luck would have it, this was one sketch he did catch. Apparently Yeezy was none too pleased with being mocked by a child because he took to (what else?) Twitter to unleash a world of anger on the late night host with a string of 10 tweets that can only be described as solid gold hate.
As you can imagine, #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK is the beginning stages of trending, followed closely by #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL.
The late night host responded to the vitriol with a few lighthearted quips.
Whether Kanye’s fury is real or it’s just another one of Kimmel’s elaborate Internet pranks (perhaps ABC wanted to get the chatter back in their court after Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake’s hashtag song blew up earlier this week), one thing is for sure: We’ll all be watching this evening to hear Kimmel tell us “the whole story about @kanyewest.”
