Kanye West goes on Twitter rampage against Jimmy Kimmel: Is it a prank?

Jump to Comments

If you follow Kanye West on Twitter, then you probably noticed a slew of all CAPS Tweets targeted at Jimmy Kimmel after the late night host spoofed Kanye’s now infamous BBC1 interview. In the interview, the rapper talked culture, Anna Wintour and leather jogging pants (yeah, we didn’t quite understand it either), so Kimmel recreated the viral moment using two kids to impersonate Kanye and the BBC reporter.

Well, the rapper was none too happy with the bit, claiming his interview was “the first piece of honest media in years” (or should we say “THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS”?), and took to Twitter to vent. Take a look:

In response, Kimmel had plenty of deliciously perfect responses, including this gem:

Kimmel swears this isn’t one of his famous pranks and promises to discuss the Twitter battle on tonight’s show, but check out the original interview and Kimmel’s sketch below, and let us know what you think:

Do you think Kanye and Jimmy are colluding on a prank? Does Kanye have a right to be offended?
