West became enraged with Kimmel after his show spoofed a radio interview that West did with the BBC. During the skit, Kimmel elected to have two children re-create the interview in order to point out how juvenile some of West’s responses sounded.
After the bit aired, West made an irate phone call to Kimmel during which he allegedly threatened him by saying, "I am the most powerful voice in media." According to Kimmel, West also said, “You will never be able to show your face at a 14-year-old's high school football game and be cool again.”
West then took to Twitter to air his frustrations.
The mercurial rapper tweeted nasty things about Kimmel’s face, said that he was “out of line for trying to spoof the first piece of honest media in years,” and claimed that comedian Sarah Silverman was “a thousand times funnier” than the popular late night host. His tweets have since been deleted.
Regardless of what was said or spoofed, it appears that it’s all water under the bridge at this point.
This was Kimmel's tweet announcing West's appearance:
