Kanye West to Appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Tonight
The showdown between Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel is set to go down tonight.
Tuesday evening (Oct. 8), Kimmel tweeted that Kanye will be his guest on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ episode tonight. This comes a few weeks after the two traded barbs on Twitter over a spoof of Kanye that aired on Kimmel’s show last month.
The skit, which had two kids reenact the Chicago artist’s interview with Zane Lowe, followed by brief commentary from Kimmel, caused Kanye to unleash a barrage of tweets towards the late night host. A couple of the tweets included unflattering memes.
Kanye demanded an apology from Kimmel, which he has thus far not received. Meanwhile, Kanye has subsequently deleted all of these tweets.
While some believe that the Twitter beef was fabricated to increase ratings for Kimmel’s show, citing the recent twerking video controversy as a similar example, Kimmel has vehemently denied this and continues to do so.
TOMORROW NIGHT, MY GUEST WILL BE @kanyewest (for real, yes and was it all a setup, no)
