Mr. West deleted a series of all-caps tweets that accused Kimmel of having a crazy looking face, having sexual relations with actor Ben Affleck, and being manipulative, among other things.
What set Kanye off was a spoof video of the “Black Skinhead” rapper’s interview with BBC Radio in which he proclaimed himself the No. 1 rock star on the planet.
Kimmel hired two children to reenact the interview, and Kanye didn’t appreciate the humor. “Jimmy Kimmel is out of line to try and spoof in any way the first piece of honest media in years,” Kanye proclaimed.
But now the tweets, which Kimmel responded to as a good sport, have been removed from Kanye’s Twitter feed. It’s too bad because Kimmel was just starting to enjoy the controversy. After detailing on his show a phone call he had with Kanye about the whole mess, Kimmel bragged, “Finally, I’m in a rap feud.”
