Jimmy Kimmel Reads Kanye West Tweets Live on His Show!

Jimmy Kimmel has spoken out about his phone call with Kanye West that happened minutes before the rapper went on a Twitter rant blasting the talk show host for a spoof of him.

Kanye West called me about an hour, hour and a half ago in my office and he’s 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. We just had the kids say the stuff Kanye said and apparently this upset him,” Jimmy said during his Jimmy Kimmel Live show on Thursday (September 25).

“He called me. He said a lot of things. He told me I had two choices: number one, apologize publicly. And that was really the only choice. The other choice he gave was that ‘your life would be much better if you apologize,’” Jimmy added. “And then he started tweeting today.”

Jimmy then read all of the tweets that Kanye had sent out while the show was still taping.

“He told me on the phone, and I swear to god this is true, he said, ‘I am the most powerful voice in media. I am Pac.’ He said ‘I am Pac’ a few times to me,” Jimmy later added. “He said ‘you’ll never be able to show yourself at a fourteen-year-old’s high school football game and be cool again.’ He really is Pac. I mean that’s right out of the Tupac playbook, isn’t it? So, I don’t know. I don’t understand it. I don’t know why he’s angry. The bit was pretty innocuous.”

    Omg. Kanye really has a warped idea of himself. He really thinks he is some sort of untouchable sacred god. LOL
    In actual fact, he is an idiot with no sense of humor. He seriously needs to get his head out of his own a**. What a loser!

    Kanye is an idiot. An egotistical idiot. Any credit he had developed as a musician has been drastically reduced with all his recent antics.

    What a douchebag! Kanye is such a jerk! who do u think you are, the God?! you’re the son of a *****, do u know that? I feel so sorry for the person who marries him. Oh, wait, Kim, GOOD LUCK WITH THAT JERK! Once a douchebag, always a douchebag! a person like him shouldn’t even be a musician! He should be in hell..

    I think I speak on behalf of America when I say that he is NOT ‘PAC’ and not a ‘powerful voice’. If he thinks the public view him positively and powerful, then he’s got another thing coming. Many people do not like him because he rubs people the wrong way. This isn’t an opinion, it’s a fact.

    I have always said that when Kanye dies and he goes to meet God outside the gates of heaven, the first thing out of Kanye’s mouth to God will be “you’re welcome”.

    I can see why Kanye is angry. The BIT was mocking him.
    Cheap Shot by Kimmel, though I love Jimmy’s show and think he’s great.
    He should have told Kanye about it before he went ahead with it.

    Sheyenne Says:

    Okay I’m a fan of some of Kanye’s music but he is a complete *******. He can say whatever he wants about people and it shouldn’t be a problem . But if someone makes a joke about him he has to blow up like this. Maybe Taylor Swift should have acted like this when he got on stage and embarrassed her. I mean this dude really thinks he’s king or something.

    Kanye West please take several seats!!!!!!

    When Kanye walked into that sign a few months ago, I think he knocked a few more screws loose. Amanda Bynes, meet your new roommate, Kanye West.

    Are you serious? Jimmy Kimmel makes fun of a ton of celebrities. And Jimmy doesn’t need Kanye’s permission for anything. Kanye’s reaction was even more ridiculous than his interview. Kanye is a talented man, but that’s no excuse for lacking a sense of humor or common sense.

    Kanye is talented however he has not been the same since his mom passed he is desperately crying for help, seek it rest a while and make a intellectual comeback.

    Kanye is just an idiot!! He’s proven it over and over again

    Telley Says:

    The more ridiculous West sounds, the more material he gives Jimmy to tell jokes about him. That’s what comedians do.

    Spot Says:

    Kanye is just an idiot who has no sense of humour he was exactly the same before his mother died. That is the most stupid excuse to behave the way he has for the last few years. Gosh Kim is one lucky woman can you imagine what it is going to be like when they split? LOL Kanye has no real power too many people think he is a douche he has no respect from most people because of his actions and his big ignorant mouth over the years. Get a sense of humour and is threatening Jimmy Fallon really a good idea? Guess Kanye forget he has a international television show. I’m sure Jimmy is shaking in his boots. Someone needs to give Kanye a reality check he is dating a porn star and has a kid with the worlds most stupid name and he thinks he is this huge star what were his last record sales? Pretty poor from what I remember.

    Kanye West sounds like a crying 12 year old boy , every time he opens his mouth it’s like can he sound any less intelligent than the last . Kanye is a live reflection of the real Kim K. we don’t really ever get to see !

    Greg Says:

    Kanye can be described in one word (LOOSER)

    donda Says:

    Kanye West is obviously suffering from some form of mental illness. His recent sit-down interview with Zane Lowe just confirmed this. Maybe he’s bipolar maybe he’s schizophrenic, don’t know if his mother’s death which he may subconsciously feel responsible for has anything to do with it, don’t know if the abandonment issues countless black males struggle with is to blame. All I know is he needs help.

    Let’s all just hope that no one gets hurt when Kanye shows up to someones house with a can of gasoline like Amanda Bynes did , hope he gets the help he needs before it comes to that !
