LOS ANGELES • Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West either are engaged in a bitter feud or a wild parody of one.
A skit poking fun at West on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday provoked an irate call from the rapper about an hour and half before Thursday's show, Kimmel said in his monologue.
"He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week," Kimmel said, in which a child re-enacted an interview that West gave to Britain's BBC. It was "pretty innocuous," the late-night host said.
But West ordered him to make a public apology and said Kimmel's life would be "much better" if he did so, Kimmel said, adding that West also called himself the most powerful voice in media.
