I don’t always agree with Kanye West, but when I do he is normally right- and he is right Jimmy Kimmel’s parody was stupid, tasteless and ignorant. Kimmel had no reason to try and diss Kanye when he is clueless on hip hop, being a superstar and dealing with the life Kanye lives.
Kanye’s twitter rant was in response to the segment that aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week. In it, Kimmel mocked and dissed Kanye’s recent interview with Zane Lowe, bringing two young children to reenact West’s recent interview with the BBC:
In response Kanye went in: peep the tweets:
Kanye starts off saying JImmy Kimmel is out of line for that parody, followed by “I don’t take it as a joke… You don’t have scum bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter.”
He added: “I like you, you know me, I went to your family’s wedding.”
Referring to the comedian’s former girlfriend, Kanye also wrote: “Sarah Silverman is a thousand times funnier than you and the whole world knows it.”
Jimmy Kimmel spent Thursday night discussing what he called a “very angry phone call” he received from West about an hour and a half before taping ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live. “Kimmel said that West called to complain about a comedy bit Kimmel’s show did this week in which a child re-enacted an interview by the rapper.
According to Kimmel, West told him to apologize publicly and that his life would be better if he did.
I agree apologize Kimmel! Here is the video of Jimmy reading Kanye’s tweets in live time… I was rollin… This has not been Kanye’s year. He brought this upon himself. The more he talks and the more he is seen in the public eye the worst it gets for him. He needs to take the bit of respect he has left and fade into obscurity for awhile, because that bit of respect is dwindling fast.
