CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT: JIMMY “THE GENT” KIMMEL VS. “KING” KANYE WEST
Angry “rap feud” explodes between Tupac-deluding KANYE WEST and funnyman JIMMY KIMMEL. Tale of the tape – uh- Tweets as the two contenders square off.
WHAT started it? Kimmel aired a spoof ovideo of children re-enacting a delusional Kanye West interview.
The reaction? EXPLOSIVE! Kane trash talks Kimmel via a barrage of “hate tweets”.
But “Gentleman” Jimmy was not one to feint and just roll a way. Having a network TV show has its perks as he unleashed a barrage of one-two japes at Kim Kardashian’s baby dada and supposed King of the World.
"Did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago? Just me? OK. I didn't know if he was mad at all of us," Kimmel.
"He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week," Kimmel explained to the aud sitting in his corner. "He gave an interview to the BBC, and we had a kid actor take the words and reenact it. We just had the kid say the stuff Kanye said. And apparently this upset him."
Kimmel claimed that West gave him an ultimatum – with two choices. First to "apologize publicly."
"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," Kimmel said.
"And I don't even know if I've seen some of these because they're happening as we speak."
Kimmell then read some of West's tweets on the air, mocking them.
"JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD PUSSY IN YOUR LIFE…"
Kimmel's response: "I've seen the video. I know."
To which Kimmel's responded: "Which, by the way, was a spoof. I don't know if he thought that was the news."
He then offered insight to the blistering phone call he received reputedly from West: "And by the way, he told me on the phone -- and I swear to God this is true-- 'I am the most powerful voice in media. I am PAC.' He said 'PAC' a few times to me. I guess he means Tupac.
"He said, 'You will never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old's high school football game and be cool again!' He really is Pac. I mean that's right out of the Tupac playbook, isn't it?"
"Finally, I'm in a rap feud," he quipped, “Right now we’re at DefKayne Five”.
Your move, Kanye.
