Kanye West to Guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' After Twitter Feud
Have Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel called a truce? After embroiled in a war of words on Twitter with the TV host, the rap superstar agrees to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" for a sitdown on Wednesday, October 9.
West was offended when Kimmel spoofed his interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, wherein the "Black Skinhead" rapper declared himself the "biggest" rock star in the world. In the sketch aired on Kimmel's talk show, he replaced West and Lowe with two kids drinking milkshakes.
West took to Twitter to express his anger, writing, "Jimmy Kimmel, I don't take it as a joke... You don't have s***bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter. Jimmy Kimmel, put yourself in my shoes... oh no that means you would have gotten too much good p***y in your life. You can't put yourself in my shoes. Your face looks crazy... Is that funny? Or if I had a kid say it would it be funny???"
"Should I do a spoof about your face or you f**king Ben Affleck... #no disrespect to Ben Affleck. #All disprespect to Jimmy Kimmel!!!!" the fiance of Kim Kardashian added. "I like you, you know me, I went to your family's wedding. Who you made it clear to me wasn't your family when I was on then phone with you 5 minutes ago, you manipulative media mutherf**ker."
Insisting it's not a prank, Kimmel tweeted, "Apparently @KanyeWest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me." He also replied to one of West's tweets with a post which read, "I swear, @kanyewest one more of these I WILL unfollow you #warning #Goshdarnit."
Later on his show, Kimmel explained to his audience, "He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week. He gave an interview to the BBC, and we had a kid actor take the words and re-enact it. We just had the kid say the stuff Kanye said. And apparently this upset him." He jokingly said, "Finally, I'm in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud."
The comedian also revealed that West gave him two choices, the first being to "apologize publicly." He added, "And that was really the only choice -- the other choice he gave was 'my life ... your life is going to be much better if I apologize,' and then he started tweeting today."
Whether West's visit will be awkward or not remains to be seen on Wednesday night. Meanwhile, Kimmel had a fun with "Modern Family" cast when they stopped by "JKL" on Monday. Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen and Ed O'Neill, who were in the Pritchetts team, were pitted against "the in-laws" consisting of Eric Stonestreet, Ty Burrell and Sofia Vergara in a "Modern Family Feud" game.
