Twitter Fight Club: Kanye West vs Jimmy Kimmel

Last night someone must have peed in Kanye West’s cornflakes and told him it was breast milk because he decided to let it all hang out on Twitter, once again. By let it all hang out, I mean his keyboard took a beating as he was typing angrily to Jimmy Kimmel.

Let me set this up for you really quick. Kanye generated a lot of buzz after his recent BBC interview.  He talks about his greatness, some leather jogging pants, and music. That’s just the abridged version.  Then, late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel does what talk show hosts do. They poke fun at celebrities. Take a look at the video below:


Ok, so now that we have that out of the way.

Let’s read the latest Kanye rant via Twitter, start from the bottom and work your way up:



I’m quite surprised Kanye could actually find the time to make impeccable graphics.  A lot of people just assumed this was yet another Jimmy Kimmel joke, like the twerker chick who set herself on fire, but Kimmel assured everyone it wasn’t:

Here’s Kimmel’s reaction to Kanye’s rant, which was going on as he was taping his show:

Well there you have it folks, another Kanye meltdown. I’m quite sure we haven’t seen the last of them.

    “[A]nother Kanye meltdown” well said. Jimmy Kimmel handled it well.

  • BeingNicole

    Every celeb is been poked fun at and a lot of them take it gracefully and laugh at it as well. IDK why Kanye thinks he’s all high and mighty. The funny thing is, its a joke to Jimmy and Kanye is just giving him more fuel. Jimmy wins in the end.

  • Tina L

    Kanye is a miserable clown and it seems like the more money, fame, and access he acquires the more buffoonish he becomes. College Dropout Kanye was likable. The current version – not so much.

  • Chika

    Jimmy Kimmel: 1
    Kanye West: 0

  • Deal-n-Truth

    Kanye needs to grow up real fast and become respectable example for his daughter.

  • copelli

    Something is off with Kanye. I don’t know if this is his version of the “tortured, genius artist” or what, but he seems completely irrational, paranoid and narcissistic.

    He might want to seek some help or work on developing some humility.

  • mluv

    oh boy Kanye needs to see a therapist, he needs to learn to take a joke.

  • NikiFab

    Ever since the death of his mother, the state of Kanye’s mental health has certainly declined.

  • mostexhalted30

    Jeez Kanye chill out! It was a joke! I didn’t find the clip Jimmy did to be funny at all, but my goodness for Kanye to go off the way he did is weird to me. I hope it was all a publicity stunt. Maybe Kanye and Jimmy are playing a game for the public’s amusement.

  • GlowBelle

    Ugh. Kanye is so far up his own butt it’s surprising he even gets Wi-Fi. How can you get mad at a parody with kids? What gets me is that there are people out there who think that he’s some ‘tortured genius’ and is acting this way to beat the critics to a punch. No, Kanye is a narcissistic jerk and he needs to lighten up and learn to laugh at himself.

    Once again, I feel sorry for his daughter.

  • L

    As for Kanye: that boy Cray!!!!

  • No Comment

    And throw a tantrum like he is 3 years old…

  • binks

    This is why mental health is important. At this point his daughter is more mature than him…smh. Someone needs to tell him A) he isn’t special or B) he isn’t this self proclaim musical genius, but entitled and egotistical he needs to build a bridge and get over himself. If

  • Jess

    perhaps he should reconsider putting his twitter account back to rest. Impulsive…. i really want to like kanye but he keeps not letting me … smh

  • Marisa

    Kanye I’m gone let you finish but your “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” is your greatest rant of all time *Kanye Shrug*

  • Miss E

    To quote the POTUS: Kanye West is very talented & he’s a jacka*s

  • Annoyed

    Never pick a fight with a comedian.

  • Annoyed

    Especially a comedian with his own television show.

  • ScriptTease

    When he was referring to good Cooch, has Kim improved since her Ray-Jay days or was he talking about from other women?

  • Anthony

    Kanye must have been sheltered as a kid because he should have learned in elementary school that often the best way to handle teasing or bullying is to simply ignore it. Seriously Jimmy Kimmel has made fun of him, how is that going to actually hurt him? All he is doing is giving Kimmel power by responding.

  • Anthony

    If his mother dying made Kanye flip out, he was never stable in the first place. If you live long enough, you bury your parents, it is never easy. I lost my father as a young man, and I lost my mother deep into middle age. Both losses hurt, but I did not turn into a giant a-hole.

  • chnyere

    it was a skit, but kanye didn’t catch that

  • tina l

    This whole episode made me think of some of the conflict resolution lessons I see when I watch the preschool channels like NickJr., Disney Jr, and Sprout with my little one. Perhaps Kanye will benefit when he starts watching preschooler programming with his own little one. Just the other day, I watched an episode of Little Bill where his grandma (Ruby Dee) counseled him to just say “so” and ignore the bully when the bully called him names because those shouldn’t matter to Little Bill.

    apparently no one told him hes a father now, fix up, smdh
