Kanye to face off with Kimmel
Kanye West will guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s show following their "rap feud".
The rapper has booked a guest spot on the comic’s US late night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! following a very public feud, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Jimmy enraged the hitmaker last month when he spoofed a recent interview Kanye gave to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, re-staging the sit-down with child actors.
During the interview, Kanye talked about his frustrations with fashion and declared himself the "biggest" rock star in the world.
"Does Kanye West know he's not supposed to be his own hype man?" Jimmy asked as he introduced his sketch.
Kanye was furious about the skit and directed a series of profanity-laced tweets at Jimmy shortly thereafter.
“JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE… YOU CAN'T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY...IS THAT FUNNY?...OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD BE FUNNY???” he wrote in part.
“OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P***Y IN YOUR LIFE…" the rapper ranted.
"SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F**KING BEN AFFLECK… #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!"
Jimmy responded to the attacks with more jokes, tweeting: "Finally, I'm in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud."
It was unclear at press time if the pair had mended fences.
