The other night, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel decided to poke fun at Kanye West’s passionate interview with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe by using two kids to create a parody interview. In the spoof, a kid mocks some of the funniest soundbites from Kanye’s sit-down, while another kid, dressed as Zane Lowe unenthusiastically sips on a milkshake. Before showing the parody to his audience, Jimmy Kimmel provided commentary on the interview while saying that Kanye said a lot of weird stuff. “He said that he’s the number one rock star in the planet, whatever planet he’s on. Does Kanye know you’re not supposed to be your own hype man?”
Of course, when Kanye finally saw the clip, he was pissed off, and in true Ye fashion, he took to his Twitter account and blasted Jimmy for being a “manipulative media muthaf-cker”:
