1. Kanye vs. Kimmel
In the truce heard around the world, Kanye visited Jimmy Kimmel Live
to settle the Twitter war that resulted after Kimmel aired this video
where the comedian decided to take a narcissistic interview the rapper did with the BBC and replace Kanye and the interviewer with children. The very next day, Kanye took to Twitter to unleash a multitude of nasty tweets. “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years. I don’t take it as a joke ... You don’t have scum bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter. Jimmy Kimmel, put yourself in my shoes.”
When West compared Kimmel's level of humor to that of his ex-girlfriend, Sarah Silverman, things escalated. “SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!” West tweeted.
responded with, "I swear, @kanyewest one more of these I WILL unfollow you #warning #Goshdarnit."
"Finally, I’m in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud," the comedian joked.
On his show, Kimmel explained the saga to his audience. "It’s been a weird -- quick question, did anyone else get a very angry phone call from Kanye West about an hour and a half ago?" Kimmel said. "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."
Less than two weeks later, West appeared on Kimmel's show
to clear the air. "We had a big, dumb fight on Twitter, but he was nice enough to agree to come and talk about it tonight," the talk show host declared as he introduced the smug West. Kimmel admitted that he hadn't seen the entire BBC interview when he made the spoof. "The main reason that I did that is because I like to see kids curse," laughed Kimmel. Although Kimmel admitted he should have considered West's feelings before mocking him, he said, "I think you bring it on yourself. A lot of people think you're a jerk." But Kimmel
made it clear that he's witnessed Kayne's acts of kindness firsthand and always defends the musician when people talk badly about him.
