Jimmy Kimmel has spoofed an hour-long interview Kanye West gave to the BBC -- and West doesn't like it.

After questioning West's statements on a recent episode ("Does Kanye West know you're not supposed to be your own hype man?," Kimmel joked), the late-night host presented a sketch with child actors drinking milkshakes and recreating West's sit-down with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe.

The interview is one of only a handful West has granted this year and his second on-camera -- and judging by his tweets, he took it quite seriously.

"JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS," he wrote. "JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON'T TAKE IT AS A JOKE…. YOU DON'T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER."

His response quickly turned personal, critiquing Kimmel's sex life and adding the comedian's face "looks crazy."

 

 

 

 

 

"SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!" he wrote, a nod at Kimmel's longtime former girlfriend.

West wrapped up for the night with a pair of inappropriate meme images.
