Kayne West is a tad upset with Jimmy Kimmel.
He must have done something truly awful to get mild-mannered, peaceful and extremely humble Kanye West upset.
On Wednesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Kimmel parodied West's recent BBC radio interview, during which he called himself a civil rights movement, ranted about inventing leather jogging pants, compared himself to Vanellope Von Schweetz from "Wreck It Ralph," and pretty much said he's the center of all culture.
Kimmel had some fun with it by re-enacting part of the interview using children. Which, as you'd expect, West took in stride, had a good laugh about, and forgot the whole thing.
Predictably, West went nuts on Twitter, which he apparently didn't understand would just give Kimmel more material the next night. Here's a running summary of his tweets. Apologies for the all-caps, and any subsequent visits to the optometrist you may need after reading this, but these should really be seen the way they were sent, sans obscenities.
"JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS
JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE.... YOU DON'T HAVE SCUM 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 (expletive) 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???

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 (expletive).
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!"
Just remember ... he likes him.
He also sent out a couple memes of Kimmel -- one concerning Kimmel's ability to attract women, the other having something to do with SpongeBob SquarePants.
On his show Thursday night, Kimmel said he also received a phone call from West about 90 minutes before his show started.
"He told me I had two choices: One, apologize publicly. And that was really the only choice," Kimmel said. "The other choice he gave was that my life is going to be much better if I apologize."
Of course, he didn't apologize, basically saying he was thrilled to be embroiled in his first rap feud.
"We'll keep an eye out during the show to see if he has any new (tweets)," Kimmel said.
He also said at the recent wedding both men attended, West was friendly with Kimmel's family. He said the West in the Twitter feud was the "bad" Kanye West. "Then, there's a good Kanye West, who posed for a picture with my dad," he said, showing the photo.
If this isn't all a big set-up, it will be fun to watch develop.
