Well, that’s one way to celebrate! Late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel celebrated his 50th birthday on Nov. 13 and in order to properly pay tribute to him, celebrities got together to film a very special version of his Mean Tweets segment, where they read mean comments about him that were posted on Twitter — and even Kim Kardashian herself joined in on the fun by digging up a tweet that her husband Kanye West posted back in 2013 during a feud with Jimmy! Watch the video below to see Kim read Kanye’s mean tweet!
Poor Jimmy! Kanye was extremely upset with Jimmy and he went on one of his infamous Twitter rants against the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host. Their feud started after Jimmy Kimmel decided to make fun of Kanye after his 2013 interview with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe in which he made a ton of grandiose statements about himself, in which he called himself the “biggest rock star” in the world.
Jimmy spoofed the interview with children in a segment for Kimmel Kid (re)Kreation — and Kanye did not take it so well, and he let Jimmy know in a series of tweets. “JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” he wrote at the time. “JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P—Y 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???”
Kanye went on to threaten to make his own spoof about Jimmy, and he insulted Jimmy’s comedic skills and said Sarah Silverman is “a thousand times funnier” than Jimmy. But now, four years later, it looks like their feud is over and now they can look back and laugh at it.
