(USA TODAY) -- Kanye West launched a Twitter tirade against Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday
after the late-night funnyman spoofed West in a video segment on
Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Unless it's all an elaborate prank, West was apparently angered by this video, which makes fun of the rapper's recent interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe in which West describes himself as the "biggest" rock star ever.
Most of West's profanity-laced, all-caps tweets can't be reproduced here. (Kimmel stayed pretty calm throughout the exchange.) The Hollywood Reporter has a run-down of the blow-up, which includes doctored photos posted by West of SpongeBob SquarePants with profane captions.
