Jimmy Kimmel, the host and creator of the late-night ABC comedy show ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ found himself in an unexpected Twitter battle with rapper Kanye West. The father of Kim Kardashian’s baby got really angry after he was the subject of a spoof video on the show based on an interview West did for BBC Radio. Apparently, Kanye didn’t take it as a joke at all and set a full blown Twitter attack on Jimmy Kimmel : he insulted the TV host several times, called him names, posted memes of Kimmel with insulting words written across the photos and tried to offend the comedian saying his ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman was a funnier performer.
However, Kimmel didn’t get to Kanye’s level and never said anything offensive in return but kept the whole Twitter affair light-hearted and humorous. He later used the misunderstanding between the two of them on his show and read some of Kanye’s tweets stating he didn’t really get why the rapper was angry as the whole thing was obviously a joke to begin with.
