“Sarah Silverman Is A Thousand Times Funnier Than You” Kanye Comes For Jimmy Kimmel
So yesterday evening Kanye popped off. Not on the paparazzi but on Twitter, this time his target was late night host Jimmy Kimmel of all people. On his show last night Kimmel spoofed the hour long interview Kanye sat for with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. Jimmy employed children to illustrate what he felt was the absurdity of Kanye’s comments.
Before he introduced the clip though, he reviewed some of Kanye’s quoteables like calling himself the biggest rock star around and then asked “Does Kanye West know you’re not supposed to be your own hype man?” Well he does have a point there. I’ll always have a place in my heart for Kanye; but I’ll also admit that for a man with his talent, who can rest assured that people regard him as the genius he claims to be, I find it tragic that he feels the need to constantly remind us of his cultural relevance and influence. “Tell me that ain’t insecure.”
Either way, here’s Jimmy’s kid spoof below.
It’s no big deal right? I would even venture to say it’s not that funny…like at all. I’m sure it wouldn’t have been something we talked about today, had Kanye not taken to Twitter and responded.
Here’s what he had to say.
Confused…when did the spoof or Jimmy’s comments mention him and his altercations with the paparazzi? Oh well… Kanye had much more to say.
Wait, how did Ben Affleck’s name get dragged into this?
And my favorite tweet of the rant…
What I found particularly amusing was that we’ve seen and heard the “Kanye yell” so many times that I can literally hear him screaming these capitalized tweets. (This is how you use caps folks, when you are doing your Kanye yell, anything else is inappropriate and offensive.)
But he wasn’t finished. When words fail there are always memes to illustrate a good point.
And if that didn’t show how unlike a child Kanye really is, there was this picture that came later.
And so ends the Kanye West rant.
Not too much to say here. I’m just always surprised at the things that Kanye allows to get under his skin…
