Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has no plans of backing down or apologizing to Kanye West in light of being publicly called out over his parody video clip earlier in the week.
Kimmel jumped onto his Twitter page heading into the weekend to add some playful fuel to the fire he lit underneath Mr. West.
“I challenge you to a rap battle @kanyewest #Iplaytheclarinet,” Kimmel tweeted September 27.

Kimmel’s ex-girlfriend, comedienne Sarah Silverman, also spoke out in light of being referenced by Yeezy in his tweets.
“Look, @Kanyewest is brilliant & @JimmyKimmel is hilarious. I’m certainly NOT 1000 x funnier. I’d say 5 x funnier AT BEST,” she tweeted September 26. (Sarah Silverman’s Twitter)
Entertainment industry veteran Irving Azoff decided to ride with Team Yeezy and scolded Kimmel on Friday (September 27).
“Hey @jimmykimmel @kanyewest kicked your ass. You look like a joke trying to exploit this.,” he tweeted September 27.
“. @jimmykimmel your low blow comment was uncalled for and shows that you still don’t understand the big time.” (Irving Azoff’s Twitter)
In addition to re-tweeting Azoff’s remark, Ye left a few final tweets onto his page about Jimmy.
“COMMENT FROM JIBRIL DURIMEL: “I’m really Against what Jimmy K. did with that parody.””
“”Like Kanye said – Finally someone speaks some inspirational and real words that haven’t been exposed in a while and JK comes out with this””
“”It’s simple, mediocre dreamers think this is humorous but all Kanye is pretty much saying in the interview is to dream to be the best.””
“”A god”. But then he’s made out to be ridiculous for wanting to be at an even higher level of self confidence.””
“”Exactly what he meant by “SELF HATE!” I don’t want to dick ride KANYE just saying that if more people actually listened””
“”they’d grow wiser after listening to the interview.””
“”Jimmy K. is the EVIL guy trying to keep people in a box and not want more out of themselves. He does this by making fun of real dreamers.””
“”THE NEW ROCKSTARS! No but really please think about what i’m saying.”” (Kanye West’s Twitter)
Mr. West hopped onto his Twitter page late Thursday night to spark the Twitter feud.
“JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” Ye tweeted September 26.
“JIMMY KIMMEL, 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 … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P*SSY IN YOUR LIFE…”
“YOU CAN’T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY… IS THAT FUNNY?… OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???”
“SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F*CKING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!”
“I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY’S WEDDING”
“WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN’T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF*CKER.”
“SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!” (Kanye West’s Twitter)
