Is the Jimmy Kimmel-Kanye West Feud a Hoax?

When rapper Kanye West took to Twitter and attacked late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel over an interview parody, plenty of people instantly thought it was fake — a big joke that the consummate prankster would reveal days later. But now we aren’t so sure.

The “Twitter fight” (quotes because we aren’t convinced it’s real) started when Kanye West tweeted this:

Kimmel responded with:


Following the initial exchange, the rapper called out Kimmel for having a “funny face” and not being as funny as (ex-wife) Sarah Silverman. Clearly, a lot of effort was put into these insults. Some of West’s tweets even contained some — shocker! — R-rated material.

In case you missed it, the whole Internet fight started when Kimmel mocked an interview West had done with BBC Radio this week by filming a reenactment of it with little children standing in as West and interviewer Zane Love.

West referred to that interview as the “first piece of honest media in years” — and we’re guessing he was dead serious.

So, what do you think? Elaborate joke/hoax, or legit beef?
