Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West were pals, as unlikely as that seems — but that odd-couple friendship has either hit the skids or we're in the middle of a great episode of Punk'd.
Kimmel ran a hilarious skit on his show earlier this week poking fun at West's recent BBC interview, using kids to act out the dialogue. The result: comedy gold! (To everyone but West.)
Turns out the bit didn't exactly tickle West's funnybone. He went full caps lock on Twitter to vent his utter rage on (now former) friend Kimmel.
JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
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— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
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???— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY'S WEDDING— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
Another ridiculous missive: "Should I do a spoof about your face or you f***ing Ben Affleck... #nodisprespectBenAffleck #alldisrespectJimmyKimmel!!!"
And immediately after his tweet about the wedding, he continued with, "Who you made it clear to me wasn't your family when I was on then [sic] phone with you 5minutes ago,you manipulative media mutherf*****."
West then posted two images featuring beloved children's characters mocking Kimmel, complete with language no child should hear, see or use.
Kimmel is swearing up and down on Twitter that this is not a prank and seems to be getting as much of a kick out of West's temper tantrum as we are.
