Oh, Kanye. The rapper unleashed on Jimmy on Twitter on Sept. 26 in response to a spoof video the late-night comedian recently made, but shouldn’t he have known that his rant was just giving Jimmy more comedic fuel?
Kanye West made sure the world knew about his utter disgust with Jimmy Kimmel when he attacked him with a flurry of angry tweets on Sept 26. So all eyes were on Jimmy when he took the stage for Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the late night star didn’t exactly beg for forgiveness — instead he fired back and even dissed Kim Kardashian!
Jimmy Kimmel Fires Back By Dissing Kim Kardashian
Jimmy decided to address the Yeezus-sized elephant in the room right off the bat on his Sept. 26 show. Explaining to the audience that Kanye was upset with him because of a clip they aired spoofing Kanye’s video interview with the BBC, Jimmy then revealed that Kanye actually called him and threatened him before the Twitter rant.
“He called me — he said a lot of things. He told me I had two choices: Number one — apologize publicly… and that was really the only choice,” Jimmy joked. “The other choice he gave was he said, ‘Your life is going to be much better if you apologize.'”
Jimmy then read all of Kanye’s tweets and responded to each one. Though Jimmy wasn’t exactly lashing back at Kanye in his responses, his deadpan reading of them got the point across and emphasized just how wild Kanye’s tweets were.
But there’s definitely one new diss by Jimmy — involving Kim K — that’s going to make Kanye raise his eyebrows. Responding to the tweet, “JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P***Y IN YOUR LIFE…,” Jimmy said, “I’ve seen the video, I know,” obviously referencing Kim’s sex tape.
Oh boy, this feud may have just been taken to the next level.
Jimmy Kimmel ‘Will Be Getting Back At’ Kanye West
To be fair though, Kanye was forewarned that Jimmy would be responding. “Jimmy laughed it off and will be getting back at him through comedy, which Kanye doesn’t apparently have an ounce of in his entire body,” a source close to Jimmy Kimmel Live told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Before his show Jimmy also tweeted, “I’ll tell you the whole story about @kanyewest tonight on the show – this is not a prank, I promise (unless it’s being played on me).”
Jimmy is a professional comedian — getting into these kinds of arguments is his job! Kanye might be furious with the him, but the rapper’s rant really just dug him into a deeper hole. Because we’re pretty sure that Jimmy can go diss-for-diss for however long Kanye wants.
