Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Why His Twitter Feud With Kanye West Made Him ‘So Happy’

Jimmy Kimmel loves to joke around, even if the item gets him in trouble.

In an interview coming from his February 2018 GQ cover story posted earlier of which week, the 50-year-old late night host opened up about the infamous 2013 Twitter feud with Kanye West.

“I live for moments like of which. When I got in a Twitter battle with Kanye, I was so happy,” Kimmel told the mag. “My wife makes fun of me. She’s like, ‘You are so happy right today.’ I’m absolutely beaming. I feel very confident in a situation like of which.”

The online war began when Kimmel did a parody sketch on his show, doing fun of the rapper’s BBC interview in which he claimed he was the “biggest” rock star. West didn’t appreciate the joke as well as exploded on Twitter, calling out Kimmel.

“JIMMY KIMMEL is actually OUT OF LINE TO TRY as well as SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS,” West tweeted at the time, followed by more NSFW comments.

The feud was eventually squashed when West made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! of which past October. Then for Kimmel’s 50th birthday, Kim Kardashian West read one of her husband’s infamous tweets during the show’s “Mean Tweets” segment.

“JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES… OH NO of which MEANS YOU could HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH not bad P**Y IN YOUR LIFE,” she read aloud.

Meanwhile, Kimmel is actually gearing up to host the Oscars for a second year in a row. Hollywood has already been very vocal about the recent sexual harassment as well as misconduct allegations within the industry, as well as Kimmel is actually ready to tackle the subject during awards night.

“I’m surprisingly not nervous,” he said. “I think there are certain groups of people who think I shouldn’t make any jokes about of which situation. as well as there are groups of people who will be mad if I don’t make jokes about of which situation. So you just kind of have to figure the item out. Whatever I do will be criticized by someone. Like, ‘You didn’t make enough jokes about Harvey Weinstein.'”
