Kanye West Angry Over Jimmy Kimmel's TV Spoof
Kanye West is furious with Jimmy Kimmel after the late-night TV host made fun of the singer's BBC Radio 1 interview by recreating it with a child actor on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
West was so offended by the sketch, he went on a rant on Twitter.
In all capital letters, West tweeted:

West took another dig at Kimmel by referencing his ex-girlfriend, adding,
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 27, 2013
In response to West's fury, Kimmel addressed the issue during his talk show. He explained: "Kanye West called me about an hour, hour and a half ago in my office. He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week. He gave an interview to the BBC – and we had a kid actor take the words and reenact it.
"He told me I had two choices – #1 Apologize publicly. And that was really the only choice – the other choice he gave was 'my life…your life is going to be much better if I apologize.'"
After posting West's tweets on the screen for the audience to see, Kimmel joked: "Finally, I’m in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud. Right now we’re at DefKanye Five."
