After Kanye went on a Twitter rant following Jimmy Kimmel’s spoof of his BBC interview, the two agreed to talk it out on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. And in true Kanye form, he went on another epic rant to clarify his last rant.
“We had a big dumb fight on Twitter but he was nice enough to come on tonight,” said Kimmel, who tried to cut the tension by opening with accessories. He asked about Kanye’s outfit (“Ralph”), was he wearing a new grill (“No, they’ve been in my mouth for three years”), before showing a clip of the skit that started it all (even Kanye was smiling!)
“The truth is, the main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse,” said Kimmel who admitted he didn’t watch the entire BBC interview. Both assured us this wasn’t a publicity stunt.
Niceties aside, it looked for moment that Kimmel was going for the jugular when he told Kanye, “A lot of times I think you bring it on yourself, this kind of misunderstanding about you.” With an intense Kanye staring deep into his soul, Kimmel added, “A lot of people think you’re a jerk.” But then he defended him, sharing with the audience a photo of the rapper posing with Kimmel’s father at a wedding. “I know this guy, he’s not a jerk.”
